Replace carb with a weber. you can remove the computer and it will still run.
i never solved why mine was running rich, it was easier and cheaper to change the carb. to an aftermarket.

Hi,you can try this , take your plugs off ,clean them good or replace them,leave them out for about thirty minutes so the combustion chambers will dry out ,install your plugs and try to get it runing ,if it start and does it again you may have to much gas from your carb , (I hope this will help you)..........

1987 Suzuki samurai take 30 minutes to start in the morning only the it start OK for the day seems like it not getting gas in the morning only


the G13 or G16 engine, and 1987 year was carbs, not EFI.
so if it has carb , you need to say so.

if it starts fast with test fuel (spray)
then your choke is dead.
ever adjust a choke before.
RTM?

I think there is bad gas getting to the carburetor.


still stock with stock carb? or it EFI.?
some are. newer.
no matter all gas motors same.
1: compression bad, (timing belt to cam bad)
2: no spark (or timed wrong ) you did only 1 of 2 tests.
3: bad fueling. try test fuel
1,,2 3, in that order or go crazy chasing tail. .

No gas in the carb, after it sets for a couple of days


To avoid the running out of fuel in the carb,one simple suggestion. Fit a Check valve ( metallic one ) between the fuel pump and carburetor.Always the non return to be on the side of the carburetor.

My Samurai wont start . It is getting gas to the carb and spark to the plugs. Was driving down the road and just died. Getting power everywhere. Starter turns but the motor just wont fire up.


I had a similar issue with my '86....driving home, made a left turn, and engine shut down. Coasted to a stop, and had a look under the hood. Cranked over fine, had gas, spark, but no go! After a tow home, and more in-depth investigating, turned out that the timing belt had broken! The older engine has no interference between valves and pistons, so installing a new belt got 'er going again for about $40. You can look down though the oil fill port or loosen the upper screws on the belt cover to confirm that the valves are/are not moving when the engine cranks.

Just bought a 1984 mustang its not run for years and wont start it turns over getting gas to the carb and has fire not sure about wiring


Any time a car sits for a long period of time you should completely drain the gas tank. The gas is more then likely stale. Try pouring a little new gas into the carb or use starting fluid. If it starts you have found your problem and will more then likely have to drain and clean the tank and replace the fuel filter.
If it does not start with the new gas, it is either a compression or timing issue. If you have spark at the plugs, and GOOD fuel in the carb and it still wont start I would check the timing. If the timing is on, check compression. If the engine sat to long with no oil in the cylinders they can build up condensation and rust. Then when you try to start it with the rust in the cylinders it can destroy the rings and cause compression loss.

1987 dodge raider 2.6 it that wont start


if the timing is off you wouldn't have good compression
make sure you have at least 136-170 psi and the different should not be more than 14 psi.

The plug wires are all off of the plugs on my suzuki samairi. i need to know which one goes where.


The best information I have is;
The order is 1-3-4-2
This is the Firing order for the 1987 suzuki samurai with a 1.3 motor.

When changing plugs, do them one at a time to prevent mixups.

Hard starting '88 samarai


check all of your fuel lines for possable leaks. also on the front of your carb there is a vacuume port that con come loose adn allow air into the float bowl causing the fuel to siphon back to the tank. any other questions check out www.zuwharrie.com

Samurai backfire


It sounds more like a timing problem. If it backfires through the carb that means the intake valve is open when the spark plug fires. Same with the exaust but it the exhaust valve that is open.
