Question about 1988 Suzuki Samurai

1 Answer

Samurai accelerates on its own, can't idle, maybe too much fuel from carb?

Hi im mike
my 87 suzuki samurai SE was having trouble with acceleration and i believe i fixed tht problem but then one day after school the suzu wouldn't start. i have gotten to the point where i can start it but as soon as i start it i can't idle i have to put it in first and go and if i accelerate ill stall out, it accelerates on it's own i use the break to control speed and just shift throuth the gears as it accelerates on its own, my popz seems to think its bc the carb is giving too much fuel, (ive always had fuel probs so it wouldnt suprise me) please help any sugestions are appreciated i just need my sammy back on the road
thank you

Hi you got an air leak its the air flow not the fuel that controls the speed too much fuel will cause flooding it wont start because its sucking air and eventually when it does the extra air being sucked in causes it to accelrate you need to lift your bonnet listen for signs of air being sucked in it may be a hose , or inlet manifold gaskets carb gasket it might even be the carb as it will have rubber seals diaphrams i had the mixture jet come out before and the car takes off like a rocket yates210456

1987 Samurai idles fine. Above idle goes lean, runs rough, mc dwell 0. Rebuilt carb., no change. replaced with rebuilt carb., no change. Timing bounced around when engine running bad, replaced dist....


87 has no ECU. so must be an engine swap to a 89 or newer tracker
or last sammi that did have EFI.
you said EFI and Carb in same paragraph and that is a contradiction.
post to my bbs for more help.

post a link to a photo of your engine, many sammy cars have a newer engine and EFI added. no matter we can fix it, but you need to learn whats under the hood first, photos rule in this word.

custom carb .
who knows what you have, even diff, engine.
remove hose, measure it. if not up to measuring, take it to any shop
and they will tell you, what I.D it is. (most hoses are marked)
the jerking can be many things.
seems to me its the DASH pot effect.
on custom carbs there is no dash pot, so when you drop the hammer (throttle ) you get 100% closes throttle and next snapping
the orig, carb had a dash pot, now missing.
one trick is to run high idle speeds, or back off throttle slower driving.
or add a dashpot.
it simple delays throttle snap back.
sure the timing changes rpm that is why.
when tuning any carb, you set timing first , then tune carb to that.
stock timing and stock advance if motor is still stock,
you dizzy has stock advancing weights and springs, i test those first.
cheers.

best guess is carb. try some sea-foam in the fuel tank and never let a carb. set with ethanol fuel alwise add some stay-bil to the tank if your going to have to let it set.
