Question about 1991 Suzuki Sidekick
I assume that it is a fuel problem since sometimes it takes several minutes to start it but once it starts I can rev out of gear like a maniac and it runs fine. Every once in a while when revving like this it dies as if someone suddenly disconnected the fuel line since the gas pedal does nothing to stop or slow it from dying. When its running I can back out ok but when I shift to 1st or 2nd and need power to get going it gets to about 1500-2000 rpm then begins to **** until it has the effect mentioned above. My father and I suspect the fuel pump, but could it also be a partially clogged line or perhaps the tank needs to be flushed?
We have tried the 3 following things so far: We reconnected the negative leads well (they weren't connected well when this started). We cleaned the air filter and found that its not an air intake probelm. Lastly we replaced the fuel filter since the problem hints at being a fuel problem, and yes the gas lines had gas in them but I read another post that said it should be 30 psi? When I unbolted the lines gas only dripped out so I assume the fuel pump has some electrical problems or is just shot. Oh one more thing... where is the fuel pump located so I can check its connections?
The fuel pump is in the gas tank, your fuel filter is mounted in front of the gas tank, good luck
