SOURCE: 95 GMC Jimmy 4.3l W vin rough idle

My problem was solved when I repaired my 4 wd activation dash switch. The switch was contacting on 2WD & 4HI at the same time. The front differential activation is vacuum activated possibly creating a tug of war that didn't actually engage it but drained off vacuum from the engine? A theory at best but stumbbled across it because I knew the switch wasn't working properly I repaired it and low and behold rough idle disappeared and all is good for 3 weeks running.

Ive got a 1400 nissan and is heavy on fuel. i fitted a new nikky carburator... plz help

The carb fitted, is it brand new? Second hand new or bought at Eddie's? Not to dis Eddie's but for the most part carbs from them are rubbish. Get it cleaned out, focus especially on the emulsion tube(that long removable tube with a whole lot of little holes drilled in it) Primary main 105, secondary main 140 to 150.(140 more economy,150 more power) Don't go less than 140 or you'll be running too lean and burn valves. Double check your ignition timing and the vacuum line between the dizzy and the carb. Poor ignition timing also makes these engines very thirsty. Check the weights in the distributor for free movement. A good dose of Q20 into the distributor will be well recommended.
Since this little bakkie is unique to SA Id recommend trying some local forms as well, such as Carforums and Nissan Owners Forums.

Misfiring in 3rd and 4th gear

This sound like a timing issue, Check the points for proper gap, ck for proper timing, also ck the distributor shaft for looseness, or wabble, remove the cap and button and grab the shaft with your fingers and see if it moves back and forth, not in/out thats ok, but in a side to side type of movement. This can cause a missfire at hi rpm.

Engine trouble with my 1983 toyota pickup

Toyota engines have a built in TSTV- thermo controlled vacuum system where vacuum is applied to the choke system in various levels as according to the temp. of the engine. If the TSTV is faulty or if the vacuum pipes are incorrectly placed then you have a choke which is not opening up properly. Fuel is thus not burnt completely and due to the incomplete combustion there is a formation of soot on your exhaust. Try to get the choke to open up in relation to the temp of the engine. The fuel/air ratio alse needs to be checked ( idle mixture control) once you have the vacuum system working properly.
