If the plugs are black as coal this is from running far too rich . Check injector leaks or float level in carby . Check fuel pressure and loose jets or injector washers.

SOURCE: problem when first cranking it

COULD BE THE IDLE SPEED SENSOR. TRY UNPLUGGING IT AND SEE IF THE IDLE JUMPS UP WHEN YOU CRANK THE ENGINE. THIS IS ON THE THROTTLE BODY. BUT BE AWARE THAT UNPLUGGING THIS WILL PRODUCE A CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CODE. IF YOU TAKE IT TO AN ADVANCE AUTO PARTS STORE OR AN AUTO-ZONE, THEY WILL BE ABLE TO SCAN AND ERASE THE CODE FOR YOU FREE OF CHARGE. HOPE THIS HELPS. GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: 1991 nissan pathfinder is not idleing properly and

check the plug at the mass air flow sensor (MAF)
Corrosion is a common problem at these plugs.
clean the corrosion and then protect it with dielectric grease (silicone grease) I use mag wheel cleaner. the etching kind has phosphoric acid in it and disolves the ccorrosion. just dont forget to rinse well and then protect it afterwards. If you dont it will corrode quickly

SOURCE: won't start unless you push

it sounds like fuel pump is going. pressure should be around 40 psi.
Or it could be flooding. Holding gas pedal to floor during cranking of the engine, shuts off fuel flow through the injectors to clear a flooded engine. After engine is running again, it lets fuel flow.

If you have a Mass Air Flow Sensor in the iar intake tube, clean it with spray carb cleaner several times.

Also, try disconnecting the oxygen sensor to see if it helps. It will turn your check engine light on, but you can cycle key from off to "on" 40 times to turn it off.

No spark on 91 Suzuki Samurai


If you are getting power to the distributor cap but not from there to the leads/ plugs! It must be within the distributor! Does it have a condenser in the distributor?

Smell gas going down hill in my suzuki samuri 1989


most cars this old , the CAT is missing rodded out or dead.
and all cars with no cat stink. all ! and lots of CO. (deadly)
tune it out doors.

the carb must be tuned to burn all the fuel.
and webers are the hardest to tune. (But run better than all, once tuned) the Harley CV carb is vastly more easy to tune. FYI.
we use a wide band oxy sensor tool to tune carb now 100x more easy.
the tool was $1200 but not $140
what engine is there, G13? (most now, are upgraded)
the G13 has a mech, distributor. and the advancing weights must work like new. (not stuck"rust")
the dizzy must advance fully or carb tuning is a head to wall slam.
if the dizzy fails, it will not burn all the fuel. and will stink bad.

So using a timing light check the full advance.
the sammi FSM is free.
here it is.

2003 Dodge Durango (5.9L V8) won't stay running unless you keep your foot on the gas.


Check temp sensor and TPS, throttle positioning sensor.The power control module,"pcm.is a possible thought.Just check all connections. It is always a good idea to spray WD 40 or equivalent in the connections.

Hmmm, love those old Festiva's, great cars. Sounds like you may have a worn bushing in the distributor causing the timing to change under load. Remove the distributor cap and see if you can move the shaft side to side any. If that's good, check your spark plug wires by inserting some known good plugs into the wires , ground the side of the plugs to the engine while someone else turns the engine over. If each plug is firing a nice blue spark hot spark then your plug wires are good. If you haven't changed the spark plugs do so, even new ones can be bad. Next is fuel, old carbs are problems esp if the car has sat a while. Weber 2 stage for about $220 is a sure cure for a bad carb, I have one on my Samurai 1.3.
You didn't say if the car has ample power when it's running ok. Do a compression check to see if your valves need work. All gas engines must have compression, fuel, correct timing on firing the sparkplugs. Last but not least if all else is good use a timing light to see if the timing is advancing when you rev the engine.

Vacume/webber problem


Is it the 32/36 weber or the knock off 34/34?

If its the 32/36 then the only vacuum line from the carb goes to the advance on the distributor. If standing in front of engine there should be a nipple on the left side of the carb.

Then there's the vent nipple on the carb. That'll go to the charcoal canister. There should be 3 nipples on it. It'll go to the far right one. If there's nothing on the middle nipple then plug that one.
