1988 Samurai. Why does the engine die going up hill?

for lots of reasons. how steep a hill, offroad.
50% grade , 99%?
is yours Carb or EFI? 1990 first EFI.
is it still stock, original engine? many are not.
many with carbs, no longer have stock carb. but have weber. as ungrade many do..
just asking for wild guessing, ?
ok, spark plugs are too old.
engine cam belt slipped?

some are upgrade to EFI G13 or G16A or B engines.

the stock carb will be bad,, a hopeless case if ever there was... (no kits sold nor parts.)

but lets to the carb hit list.
1: choke stuck on , foods and stalls.
2: float, level all wrong, (will cause too lean or rich , rich is too high) or stuck high.
3: jets all dirty causing horrid lean state.d
4: emulsion tubes (air) clogged.
5: low fuel pressure, or too much if using a usa fuel pump with insane 15psi pressure that carb will fail. or the downgrade to electric pump done wrong. ask me if true.
5: air leaks below the carb cause lean and lack of power,
6: clogged air cleaner or fuel filter.

this is not a guess,
but each takes inspections and testing. fo find it.

Backfiring thru carburator

no country stated,
there are no stock uSA 91s with any form of carb.
my guess? wild, with no eye on and no photos
is its a TBI car, throttle body injection system. EFI.
i have one too. a USA 91 tracker. 2door 5speed.

the engine if still stock, is TBI
and will back fire , 99% of the time
when the 60k mile service was skipped, you did, right?
the 60k has a full egnition tune up, and new timing belt
the belt now is slipped,
this does 3 things (at least)
1: low compression not 150PSI WOT but 100 now.
2:cam timing is now way off causing #1 ,
3: Dizzy timing is way off now, a 1 minute test with the strobe light.
and bingo, gee i never to tuneup and the belt is gone.

skipping this 60k dooms all trackers to this fate. all.
if all that is good,
backfiring can happen , just with a lean mixture.
but the Tracker , just bogs with lean, it is , its nature.

back firing to me , is up , passing thru the TBI to the air cleaner
out the end of tail pipe
or pure muffler explosions, (NSA will read this line)
the FINDER is here. (whos on first? whats my engine)

If i put the wires on wrong will it back fire?

are you relating to the H.T. spark plug leads?
if you are, then yes, the engine will be delivering ignition at the incorrect time. if the engine is fuel injected you will hear a muffled thumping sound from the inlet manifold. If it is non-fuel injected it will backfire / blowback through the carb with a very real danger of starting a fire.

Extreme cases have been known to result in a broken crankshaft.

Good luck.

Hesitation and backfiring

sounds like maybe you have some trash in your fuel tank. Try changing the fuel filter and cleaning the carb. If the problem persists, you may have to drop the fuel tank and have it cleaned out.

1993 jimmy wont start

you are off the timing by a tooth or two. when you replaced the cap and rotor, if you did not mark the position of the rotor with some point on the motor or firewall, then it is likely that you installed the rotor by a couple of degrees. so, when you are going up hill, and the engine needs to advance the timing to add power you timing is off even more causing lack of power and sputtering and backfiring.

No electrical power to engine

check you fuses and clean your battery terminals, you might have a relay that controls you ignition. or could be your coil pack.
