Question about 1986 Suzuki Samurai

1 Answer

Stops running while driving

It seems like the fuel is suddenly being cut off while cruising. the engine completely dies and i spend ten to fifteen minutes trying to get it started. once it finally starts it runs completely normally. i have tried using a jumper wire from the battery to the fuel cutoff solenoid. nothing. i have tried disconnecting the battery to reset the computer. no dice. it always seems to take the same amount of time to turn over like some switch or valve in the emission system is to blame. this is a carbeurated model. thanks in advance.

    forgot to mention it has a brand new fuel pump.

    the sensor light also stays on when my 86 sami pulls this weird ****. I've tried fuel additive/cleaner such as stp or gumout and have had relatively good results as far as the not starting back up for fifteen minutes. Push start/popping the clutch works with good momentum, too! Lucky they're so light...now, I'm having another problem with fuel freeze or moisture and am losing power as soon as I let off the clutch. This most recent episode can only be managed by careful driving because the gas delivery becomes very eradic, like I gotta prime pump and clutch dance to get it rollin' on the side of the road at a jerky 5mph...limpin' home then suddenly it clears back up and the engine is winding out a 5000rpms of full power. I need to resolve this!

Try cleaning your fuel line from the built-in fuel filter of the carb down to the gas tank, including the fuel filter located under you vehicle just beside the chassis on the back part of the vehicle, better yet replace it with a new fuel filter. if possible, clean the whole fuel tank.

My 1995 jimmy start die over and over


Josh, same problem with my suburban, very frustrating. Two issues to check.
Underneath your distributor cap and ECM module there is the pickup coil. The reluctor is most likely corroded really bad. It is about one hour work but you would be surprised how dirty and corroded that area gets. The reluctor is a fixed part of the distributor shaft and the little nubs break magnetic field which is
processed by your onboard computer. If the pulses are not correct the computer is telling your TBI injectors to spray which will flood out your engine. Ten of fifteen minutes later, it will start up again and then die shortly after. Have a new pick up coil on hand too ($10.00) since your in there. My reluctor looked like it was in Vavy Jones locker it was so crusty. Second- the fuel relay. Nororious for developing little cracks on the mini circuit breaker which get wider as voltage and amps increase due to resistance (dirt,moisture). The relay will shut off the fuel pump if the oil pressure signal gets cut, and if your breaker/circuit board is
bad the board heats up and trips off your fuel. When the board cools off in ten or fifteen minutes, starts up and then dies when engine gets warm/hot. It really had me stumped for quite some time. Hope ths cuts your wrench time down considerably.

Changed the battery, the car will start but dies immediately and will not idle. Will keep running as long as you are pressing on the gas but again dies as soon as you let of the gas.


Sounds like it needs to go through a drive cycle. After the computer has been deprived of power for ten or fifteen minutes, it will need to relearn the paramiters of the electronics for the engine. Take it on a 10-15 mile drive with out stops (the high way) at about 55-65 mph and it should be ok. If not you may other problems.
