Re: Brand new LPG BA wagon stalling
MOre to the story - after dealer had the car for a few days and driving it for over 40kms, itwas given back to the owner with the story that they couldnt find anything wrong. The owner drove it 5kms and when coasting to a stop kight, it stalled again, lost brake pressure and he ended up on the othe rside of the road.
The RACV came and looked at it and popped off the inlet pipe and saw the butterfly valve still open. Looked like it got stuck and the engine shut down.
The dealer's response was to garage it and after the owner grumbled some more to anyone in the dealership he could fins\d, they have agreed to replace teh throttle body. Problem is Ford dont have an in stock (the LPG one is a special item apparently).
What is really annoying the owner is that the dealer seems indifferent to his problems and the fact that twice the failure has put the driver in very real danger of an accident.
A very unhappy owner with the dealer's attitude not helping matters at all.
Has anyone seen this sort of problem with LPG cars before ?
