running rough
Im still kind of new to this. I mostly work with Crown stand ups and can field strip one or diagnose just about anything with them. My problem is with our one sit down propane unit. I pulled it off line to replace the water pump. While it was apart I decided to do a basic tune up. Oil & filter, plugs, wires, O2 sensors, fuel filters(x2),PCV valve,and flush the radiator. After my tune up it runs worse! Very rough idle. The only success I have had is when I have reinstalled the spark plugs (had to make sure my gap was correct). Each time I have reinstalled she purrs like a kitten for about 5 seconds and then back to roughness. Oh, the exhaust is also spitting water if that is a clue to anyone.

First off, thank you for responding to my situation. This machine is only 2 years old and Im pretty sure they bought it new. In answer to your question: there are no fault codes flashing. No check engine light either. And yes, it will display the fault codes if you depress the gas pedal 3 times. It will also clear the fault code memory if you can press it 10 times in 5 seconds but you got to be quick. I have stripped and rebuilt the LP system from the tank to the throttle body without any change. I have even tried 3 different LP tanks in case something was wrong with them.

Unfortunately my ape hands destroyed that with the disassembly. Now Im looking at my OEM spark plugs and wires with suspicion. I took them out and measured resistance with my multi meter to see if maybe one was bad. When I reinstalled the rough idle went away. It is still sporadic when I put any load on the engine however. Im thinking one of the wires may have a fault within.
