I have a propane Toyota fork lift that has trouble starting

Customer Question

I have a propane Toyota fork lift that has trouble starting at times. I think it has to do with the regulator. Does the solenoid sometime stick shut preventing propane to enter the carburator? Once it does start it runs like a top.

The propane solenoid can stick. When it does not start, try tapping on the solenoid, if it then starts, replace the solenoid.
