hi its definatley an air leak if you have replaced the hoses i suggust the next thing you try is see by tighting the carburrettors nuts that hold it to the manifold as these come lose and **** air do the same with the manifold bolts i suspect you will find them loose if not then change the gaskets one at a time with the cheapest first the carburretors then the manifold you may want to go to your car shop and ask for an air leak spray or they may use some other kind of method but basicly you spray it round the carb/manifold and watch to see where the leak is yates210456

Look at the timing belt and make sure it is on and tight. Then maybe pull the distributor and make sure it isn't bad

SOURCE: 87 samurai bolt torque specs for engine

The haynes book is not recommended since there are numerous mistakes and they still will not update. One of the biggest is the firing order.

The factory service manual is the only way to go.

Head bolts - 46 - 50.5 lbs (there is an order sequence for the bolts)

Intake & exhuast manifolds- 13.5 - 20 lbs

Flywheel - 41.5 - 47 lbs

Clutch cover - 13.5 - 20 lbs

My 1999 chevy blazer is running rich where I smell fuel fumes can this cause the truck to loose power and not go over 30 but the engine runs smooth


Most likely, A good "burn" is the right Fuel-air mixture. Too much fuel bad burn lots of black smoke. Not enough fuel It may not burn at all. Any emission codes? I will bet it won't pass an emissions test, so get it fixed. Probably affects mileage. Do you smell fuel in the engine compartment? you have a dangerous leak. Or do you smell at exhaust? Do you smell in the cab?
Probably leak in engine bay, or even under the truck's fuel line, filter, pump. or tank.

Why is my 88 suzuki samurai is blowing oil out of exhaust


Your compression is low, the rings in the piston engine are worn out , you will need an engine overhaul , probably you have low power also .And blue smoke to boot ..

Burning plastic smell from under hood


You will need to check where the liquid is coming from, It may be anything from Air Con, Fuel, Transmission Fluid etc..

The fact you smell burning plastic could be 3 things..

1, Brake pads could smell and burn down if they are on too tight (Had this problem with a trailer). Hence when you apply the brakes it could be squirting brake fluid out due to too much pressure.
- Check brake fluid

2, If the smell and liquid is inside the car (front pass side) it could be the air ducts. Under the dashboard you have air ducts etc for the fans and in car cooling (brother had issue with this)

3, Whatever the fluid is, it could possibly drip onto something hot, unusual for liquid to smell like plastic though, Auto transmission oil smells like fish.

Best bet would be the brakes. Next time you smell it just smell in the wheel mag and see if you can smell it, check the engine fluids often and dont use A/C (Air Con) as that does drip fluid (normal). If it is the brakes smelling you will need to have the lines bled out, tyre places may be able to do this, and possibly new brake pads

Good luck

Strong gas smell inside of car


is there a leak in your fuel line, or possibly your fuel filter, if you see raw gas leaking, then it is dangerous for you tio continue to drive it, it only takes one spark to ignite it, however, if the smell is just your car burning rich and the exhaust has holes in it, it will smell up the inside of your car. And yes if your carb. is burning too rich then it needs adjusted. Wasting your fuel, and overloading your engine. I hope some of this was helpfull.

My car always smells like gas. The fuel filter was recently replaced.


Hi.

Check the fuel cap. It is often responsible for the problem. ICheck for leaks at the fuel pump, charcoal canister and throttle body. If there is no leak, then the fuel smell may be given by a too rich mixture. In that case you often have more problems because of engine flooding. Try doing a code scanning and see if there is any code stored (e.g. rich mixture, misfire, or indications of other problem. If problem is rich mixture you will smell gas at the exhaust. If mixture is too rich, check the sensors in the air intake (MAF, IAT) and temp sensor. If the problem is none of the ones I mentioned, check the EGR system. Recirculated gas smells the similarly to liquid fuel.

Regards.

I have a 1987 suzuki samurai and have white smoke coming from exhaust looked on dipstik and see no signs of antifreeze was told that it could be the timing belt cover leaking that doesent make sense to me...


Are you losing coolant? If so then you could have a cracked head on the exhaust side and it is leaking coolant into the exhaust and being burnt.
