VS Executive Wagon 1996
Hi everyone!

My holden commodore vs v6 1996 broke down on the road yesterday.It has backfired a few times in the last weeks and after calling my mechanic he said its not getting enough air.It ran but when I pushed the pedal it stalled.After checking I saw the plastic that is connected to a screw at the air intake of the motor is broken and we got it to start by screwing the regulating screw right in,now it works on petrol but not lpg.
I think this should be a fairly easy repair,I`m a toolmaker,not a mechanic but if someone point me towards the right direction i should hopefully be able to fix this myself :)
Thanks!

Sounds like you have a vacuum leak somewhere.

check the plastic hose to the throttle for splits they tend to explode
