You can hear the valve open and close if it is working correctly. If the lockoff is stuck you will have the symptoms that you are describing.
    That mean the tank has to be changed?

    Mine won't start and smells like cng. Dealer said they see a lot of leaking pressure regulators and said the intake manifold has to be removed to get to the regulator........can anyone confirm where the regulator is because I really dont think the manifold needs to be removed.
