Question about 1988 Suzuki Samurai
There are two little switches located on the front of the carb. each have two wires coming from them. use an ohm meter between each set of wires. when the switch is closed it shouldnot have more than 5 ohms or resistance. when its open you should have no reading at all. also those carbs are a p.i.t.a. to rebuild and not a job for just anyone. but they are always needing work. alot of us samuri addicts have done away with the stock carb and went with a weber setup. weber carbs are simpler in desighn and dont need all those vacuume lines. it also gits rid of the exses wiring.
the egr can be blocked off but the valve is cheap enough that it is just as easy to change it out. if it has been blocked off for very long you may need to pull the intake and clean out all the carbon before you install a new one.
if you block off the top of the carb with a rag while reving the engine up it can help clean out the fuel circuits. you want it to almost try to die and give it some throttle. this causes high vacuume in the carb and sucks extra fuel through the jets and valves cleaning them up. its called the redneck tune up. sometimes it works well and other times not at all.
if you spray some wd40 on the vacuume lines and around the intake seal surfaces it may try to die. if so, you found a vacuume leak. vacuume leaks are common.

Vacuum leak. Its common for it to run for awhile then shut off or shut off when stepping on the accelerator.
Just go ahead and replace each vacuum line one at a time.

Sounds like carburetor float is stuck or sinking causing engine to flood with fuel , rebuild time .
