Ford Falcon: LPG conversion

Answered by CarsGuide 8 Jan 2018

You could, but it’s a lot of work and I wouldn’t recommend it. If you really want to do it the best way might be to buy a wrecked petrol-engined Falcon and swap over the engine and fuel system. You could also extend your range by fitting a second LPG tank.

Leaking transmission in Falcon

Answered by CarsGuide 1 May 2015

It's probably a leaking seal, but you have to first determine where the leak is coming from. The best course is to locate the source of the leak and replace it, but there are additives available that claim to recondition seals and stop leaks. You should be able to find them at your local automotive store.

Ford Falcon: Upgrading to bigger wheels

Answered by CarsGuide 21 Nov 2014

The only thing you should be concerned about is the affect it might have on the speedo readings. Check the overall diameter of the 16-inch wheels and tyres and compare them to the diameter of the 25-inch wheel and tyre combination. If they're close to the same I don't believe you would have any trouble fitting them to the 2000 AU.

Ford Falcon 2001: Rattling sound

Answered by CarsGuide 19 Apr 2012

You've probably got a number of problems. The rattling noise and the vibration could be the exhaust hitting part of the body; the overheating could be a radiator issue.

Ford Falcon: Engine differences

Answered by CarsGuide 20 Apr 2010

The AU 2 was mostly a cosmetic makeover of the AU to make it a little more attractive, there were some changes to equipment levels etc., but there were no significant changes to the mainstream six-cylinder and V8. The AU 2 saw the introduction of the dedicated LPG six and a new 200 kW 5.0-litre V8 for the XR8. There’s not reason you couldn’t swap the engines.

Pajero a better choice

Answered by CarsGuide 28 Sep 2009

THE Jackaroo should be OK, but I'd look at a Pajero, which I think would be a better choice. As for the Falcon, the cars you are looking at have to be seen in isolation because of their age and kilometres. The Falcons are generally tough, but are known to have problems with radiators and head gaskets. At that number of kilometres I'd have the auto transmission carefully checked, particularly if you intend to tow.
