Question about 1987 Suzuki Samurai
Got 1987 Suzuki samurai and have few problems with it. #1 When engine is cold and you start the car it dies, you have to push gas pedal to keep it running. What can it be? (starts good when engine is hot) #2 Went to do smog and failed, smog guy said it takes to much gas that's why it failed. Why it takes to much gas? (Im driving every day its like 20 miles for 1 gallon)
Does it also run quite rough (loads of vibration) and then smooth out when it gets warmer? The air to fuel ratio may be off for the carburator. Can be adjusted using the a small screw jus underneath the throttle body. It can easily be reached without having to remove any parts. there are other reasons as well, but this solution is the only one you can do without replacing parts or tearing apart the engine. Also, depending on the state your in (California for example) it will not pass more modern emissions standards.

Check ECM (engine computer) located under glove box. Injector circuit output probably dead. Replace ECM. Go to Searchparts.com for best price.

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

ok theres a pcv valve located between the carb and the valve cover. its screwed into the intake manifold. make sure it is hooked up. also check for any vacuume leaks. if you find any cracked hoses, replace them.
also for the guy whos sami sputters on turns. check the ground stud located above the battery on the firewall. if its loose or corroded clean it up and tighten it.check the ground strap coming from the distributor area between the engine and firewall. make sure its in good shape. alot of times the distributor o rings leak oil on the wiring and rot it out. thats easy to repair also. check your engine mounts by standing on one side of the hood and grabbing the engine and pulling it side to side. the mounts are known for wearing out. they are fairly easy to replce and cheap. about 20 a piece if not less.

Car 1994 Suzuki Vitara (Sidekick), 3 door, carburetor, petrol.
I need a hose diagram for the carburetor. The person who owned it before made a mess of the system so its not throttling steadily. Hoses are blocked off and I suspect hoses re routed.
Help me please!
