Need a tune up


Hi there:
You can go to the auto parts store and rent all of the tune up tools you will need. Get a timing light, vacuum gauge, and dwell/tachometer. You will also need a set of feeler gauges.

First, take your distributor cap off and set your point gap with the feeler gauges.
Second, reinstall the cap and start the car to set the dwell.
Third, use the timing light to set your timing.
Fourth, adjust your fast idle with the dwell/tachometer.
Fifth, use your vacuum gauges and set your idle mixture screws to maximum vacuum.


Finally, reset your fast idle since it might be a bit off after adjusting your idle mixture screws.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Start with the idle needle screw first, the idle mixture screw. Seat it all the way in, first-don't overtighten and damage it, just seat it lightly, and back out two full turns. Run the engine and set the adjustment by ear to get your best lean idle: start turning the screw in (clockwise) 1/8 or 1/4 turn at a time till engine stumbles, dies, or runs rough. Keep the engine running, and turn screw out (counterclockwise) a little at a time till you hear the idle dropping. Now between those two settings is your best lean idle. Turn the screw in, a little at a time and wait for engine to respond, tiill you get the highest idle speed. Now set the other idle screw, curb idle, to the idle setting for your truck, probably about 700 rpm. You can move back and forth between the screws to get the best steady idle. Just don't over do it on the idle mixture screw.
Good luck.

First ck for a vacuum leak listen for a small slight hisssing noise. and ck pcv hose and valve. the normal rpm is 750 to 850 from the front of the vehicle look on the right side of the carburator youll see a screw at the base of carburator turn it in and you lean the vehicle out which you dont want. turn it 1/4 out and see if it idles smooth, if neither reacts than you got a vacuum leak going on

1990 f150 larriat. V-8, I believe the engine should idle around 750 rpm. I tried using a timing light and adjust the timing but the it would not work with advancing the timing. Is there anything else...


YOU CAN PUT THE TIMING BACK TO ORIGINAL POSITION! ON TOP OF THE MOTOR! IF IT IS CARBURATED, YOU CAN ADJUST THE IDLE SCREW TO RAISE IDLE! IT WILL BE A SMALL SCREW LOCATED BEHIND THE THROTTLE PLATE! ON FUEL INJECTED MOTOR, IT IS LOCATED UNDER THE COVER WHERE THE THROTTLE CABLE GOES INTO! YOU WILL SEE A SMALL SCREW BEHIND THE THROTTLE PLATE! THE PLATE IS A RECTANGULAR PLATE THAT YOU CAN MOVE TO INCREASE THE IDLE BY HAND! I OWN A 93'!

I have a 1987 Susuki Samurai, 1.3 engine. Cold start is idles at 2000 rpm up to 2200 rpm. Is this normal? Its seems a little fast. How do you adjust the cold fast idle speed? Thanks, Randy


Yeah it sounds kinda high. There is no adj except for the idle screw on the throttle, the computer does the rest, if it has one. If not, then you can adjust it some how. If carbureted, check for 2 little screws in the front, and check the choke, If throttle body, then just the idle screw, the idle should be around 1000. Hope this helps.

Give me some tips in adjusting the timing without


If the idle adjustment screw has NOT been touched or adjusted, turn the distributor slightly in either a counter clock wise or clockwise rotation until the recommended idle RPM is reached. This should get you within the ball park. The only correct way to set the timing for optimum engine performance is to use a timing light.

How to adjust air fuel mixture on a 87 suzuki samuria


On any carburator,one screw is for the idle speed, the other the air/fuel mix.Start the engine and let it get plenty warmed up. Adjust the idle screw to make the engine run slow. Turn the air/fuel screw in until the engine starts to die then out till it starts running loady.You want the screw between these two locations. Adjust it till the engine runs the fastest. Now adjust the idle speed screw to about 1000 RPM.
I hope this helps you.

1988 suzuki samurai WONT MOVE


First thing just try to push or pull the 4x4 lever if you get it to move and it feels like it went into some gear try to drive the truck.If this works look on the shifter for the 4x4 and put it in 2 wheel drive (H2 is two wheel drive,H4 is 4x4 high,and L4 is 4x4 low range).Make sure you have the clutch depresed when you try to move the 4x4 lever.If you try this stuff with no fix try and look for clutch adjustment on the transmision you may need to adjust it or your clutch is bad.
