LPG needs service again. There was some corrosion on a tank pump connector and power issues in the system. Turns out that the LPG tank and its control box is not actually meant to be outside of the body in the middle of mud and dirt. Also - injectors leaking again resulting in long cranking and occasional "fuel rail low pressure" when starting on LPG, need to have them cleaned. No issues on petrol.
Summer tires are bald, hit the wear marks and hydroplaned a bit on Tuesday seeing the first serious rainfall while driving this year. Just ordered a new set of Michelin Cross Climates:
Obviously, you guys don't like stickers either.
I want to believe that some of these kids know that stickers, wider wheels & tires, a spoiler........none of those things add horsepower. I think most of them do it because they like the way it looks. I remember when people installed body kits to make their car look lower to the ground. Then every steep driveway and speed bump destroyed the expensive body kit. Same way kids do "home made" lift kits which are just plain stupid & dangerous.
Despite what a lot of people think is stupid, dangerous, useless.............there's a huge aftermarket for auto parts which are stupid, dangerous, and useless. Mind boggling. Unless that teenager is an engineer and able to manufacture his own parts - he's buying those parts. And somebody is producing them in volume.
I've searched here, other forums, facebook groups, parts sites, pretty much everywhere but my own vehicle.
I've got the 2.5 Duratec in my '16 LWB cargo, and trying to figure out the diameter of the exhaust pipe. My gut leads me to 2.25".
Any help from you all would be great.
RallyVan for your time.
An update on this: The air must have worked it's way out of the system as I can now start it with no throttle and it keeps going.
Glad I didnt start replacing fuel lines and such like. The air must have got in there when I replaced the fuel filter. Never stop learning eh.
