Question about 1987 Suzuki Samurai

1 Answer

I have an 87 samurai that has been sitting for about 8 months-ish. i started it maybe a couple times a month till i had the money to replace the rearend/transfer. now that its back together, it will start and idle perfectly but hesitates and cuts out under load. could it be fuel pump/filter? or is it a carb problem?

Best guess is carb. try some sea-foam in the fuel tank and never let a carb. set with ethanol fuel alwise add some stay-bil to the tank if your going to have to let it set.

About the only thing within time that can change from sitting that would effect starting performance is the fuel. The fuel is probably evaporating from your lines and other areas of the system.
Try turning the key to start with a pause till you hear the fuel pump stop, THEN turn it to run.

When 87 suzuki stops it dies, hesitation when starting


I've never seen a samurai without a PCV valve hooked up. You sure its just missing it cuase that is what releases the pressure build up in the engine. If not working/installed then you're gonna get piston blow by, oil burning, and a rough running engine.

Won't start not even click


I am pretty sure you have a bad solenoid on your starter. Sometimes if you tap on them while someone holds the key in start they will make contact and it will start. Best solution is replace solenoid. You can check it by having someone hold the key in start and measure the voltage from the small wire to ground, if it is bad you will have voltage but it will not even click. Hope that helps you.
