Timing belt may have jumped. If so, use new tensioner when re-installing.

SOURCE: ran out of gas, car wouldn't crank replaced fuel pump, fuel relay, and in line fuel filter and still won't crank on 2002 chevy avalanche

still won't crank ? how's your battery ? starter ? starter solonoid ? if your engine does'nt crank , its dead ! would'nt you check the battery first ? then move on with checking the starter circuit ? seems like your putting the cart before the horse ! first of all, when you run out of gas, you need to replace the FUEL FILTER, your engine just sucked the dirt, garbage, etc., out of the tank. there's plenty of sediment in the tank, don't know how it gets there, but, you'd be surprized ! talking threw experience !!! I operate heavy equipment, its a cardinal sin to run out of fuel !!! you say you replaced the inline filter, which one, up by the engine or the main filter, under vehicle along frame ? are we talking about the same animal, PLEASE CLARIFY !

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.
G(any)
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.

I think there is bad gas getting to the carburetor.


still stock with stock carb? or it EFI.?
some are. newer.
no matter all gas motors same.
1: compression bad, (timing belt to cam bad)
2: no spark (or timed wrong ) you did only 1 of 2 tests.
3: bad fueling. try test fuel
1,,2 3, in that order or go crazy chasing tail. .

Where is the fuel pump for a 87 suzuki samurai located


depends of still is stock, still 1.3Liters engine?
many are not. after 26 years. still have a carb ?
on the stock motor the pump is driven off the cam shaft.
look at head, see valve cover, ? the FP is mechanical on carb cars.
unless modified.
here are the free books.
all is here if not modifed, if modified post a link to your engine photos. (show carb fuel lines)

88 suzuki samurai I have has a weber carb with water choke. I notice that the hose from carb has a bulge in it. I dont know the diameter of the hose coming off the carb to purchace another one? Also, i...


custom carb .
who knows what you have, even diff, engine.
remove hose, measure it. if not up to measuring, take it to any shop
and they will tell you, what I.D it is. (most hoses are marked)
the jerking can be many things.
seems to me its the DASH pot effect.
on custom carbs there is no dash pot, so when you drop the hammer (throttle ) you get 100% closes throttle and next snapping
the orig, carb had a dash pot, now missing.
one trick is to run high idle speeds, or back off throttle slower driving.
or add a dashpot.
it simple delays throttle snap back.
sure the timing changes rpm that is why.
when tuning any carb, you set timing first , then tune carb to that.
stock timing and stock advance if motor is still stock,
you dizzy has stock advancing weights and springs, i test those first.
cheers.

No gas in the carb, after it sets for a couple of days


To avoid the running out of fuel in the carb,one simple suggestion. Fit a Check valve ( metallic one ) between the fuel pump and carburetor.Always the non return to be on the side of the carburetor.

Injection engine is better than the old one (carburator system)?


Injection is efficient, low maintenence, still runs at steep angles. Stock carb is very complicated to work on, if I had a stock carb with issues I would replace it with a weber. Still, I prefer injected
