Question about Ford Futura
Hi. I have an EL Falcon on gas (after market). Today my wife was driving to the shops on gas and the engine stopped after taking off from the lights. The car would not start on gas so she switched over to petrol. It started straight away and holds an idle around 2000 RPM - a bit scary to drive like this!!. She did make it home but I think the brakes got a workout. Anyway, it will start on gas but will not hold an idle. It will start on petrol but idles at around 2000 RPM. The problem appears to have just happened (i.e. it did not get progressively worse). Any sugestions??
Hi again. Found the problem with my EL. Turns out there was an open nipple on the inlet manifold. There did not appear to be any loose hoses floating around, but blocking the nipple made everything good so I put a blanking plug over it (actually used a piece of heatshrink with the end plugged!!). So far so good. Thanks for all your help.
