  5. Side decal removal, gas tank vandals

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    Can't seem to get the gas tank off. Took the hose off the carburator, unhooked the sparkplugs and tried starting it to get more gas out and it was the colour of medium roast coffee with a little crem in it. it got cloudy as we kept trying. I will have to get it towed to a proper mechanic and...

    The fuel we syphoned out of the gastank was pretty clean but with water in it. The gas that came out of the hose that was hooked up to the carb was the colour of rootbeer.

  8. Side decal removal, gas tank vandals

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    I haven't seen any signs of rodent nests yet but the fuel filter itself is pretty damn old and the last tune up I had, the mechanic said he couldn't find me a new one. When I turn the key to start, the car turns over, all the lights go on in the dash but doesn't start. It usually does. Thanks...

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    Hello all. Does anyone have any advice on removing the side decal on a samurai? It was spraypainted by a vandal and when I have tried different methods of removing it, the ink comes off so I am thinking of trying to remove the entire decal. Will the paint come off as well underneath? This is...

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    Hello. My rear back-up (in reverse gear) lightbulb blew. it is a 12V 32CP (1073). The only replacement I could find was a 12V 32CP (1156) and it doesn't work. Any solutions? Is it the bulb? I can't find that bulb anywhere locally. Thank you.

    Hi Folks, Have any of you referred to the Haynes or Chilton Manuals for repairing your Samurai's? Are they good? Is one better than the other?

  17. 3rd and 4th gear sluggish

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    Hello, Yes, correct it's a standard transmission. I will bring it in to a mechanic next week. I used to go to the dealer to get things done but they would find all sorts of new things to have to fix so I stopped. Now if I bring it to a non-dealer mechanic, prices are better but each one...
  18. 3rd and 4th gear sluggish

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    Shifting is still very smooth and I had a tune up last week. The gear/clutch/maybe transmission thing just sort of started up this past week. A real loss of power. I've never had any major problems with it in the 25 years I've had it so it's due for something I guess.
  19. 3rd and 4th gear sluggish

    Suzuki Jimny, Sierra & Samurai Forum
    When I shift into 3rd gear, it revs high and I lose power, same goes for 4th gear especially if there is any sort of hill situation or uphill gradient. It will only go between 40 - 50 km/hr. Is this a transmission problem? Any help and suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks
