LPG High Idle and Petrol 'Hunting' Idle on 1.3 EFI 16v HiJet

Post by HiJetSi on Mon Mar 11, 2013 4:20 pm

Hello All!

I have recently purchased a Hijet 1.3 EFI 16v Dual Fuel HiJet.

I already have a problem though:

- The idle is very high when running on LPG (about 2000rpm) and stays like this when warm.
- The idle tends to 'hunt' when on Petrol - up, down, up, down and also stays like this when warm.

Tonight I am going to:

- Check Coolant Level
- Start on fuel firstly rather than LPG and see how it idles
- Add a fuel additive/cleaner

Can anyone give me some advice on what to try next if the above does not solve the issue?!!

Cheers!

Simon

Yes common fault, caused by one or a number of things. Most commonly caused by:-

Idle speed control valve on the back of the inlet manifold/throttle body is not getting coolant though it.

Which is most commonly caused by it having problems with the coolant system and over heating.
