Default Those needing Zuki work in Texas

If you need good Zuki work done in Texas, I strongly suggest you call Matt in Ft. Worth at 817-805-2295. If got his number off this forum, and very thankful to have received it.

He pulled a used 1.3L with a thrown rod/spun bearing from my 88 Samurai and replaced with a rebuilt 1.6L 8V. Also, 2" lift to allow clearance of the oil pan on the 1.6L, tightened steering column, replaced bushing in transmission shifter to eliminate slop, replaced knock-off Weber with real Weber, and cut hinges on doors to allow doors to easily come off and on.

I could not be happier with the work he did, very professional and shows a very high level of attention to details. Worked very hard to stay within my budget, the increase in HP & Torque with the 1.6L 8V is night and day. I didn't think there would be that much difference, but I was wrong.

If you need a very dedicated Samurai mechanic, Matt is your guy, you will not be disappointed.

Default ZUK Help in Louisiana?

I have a great running 87 tin top with a 16v EFI motor.
There is a "check engine" light lit.
My mechanic doesn't have a computer that can read the ECU.
Does anyone know where I can have this looked at in LA?
Thanks in Advance

Your Samurai with the 16v heart is probably an OBD I system, I think they went to BODII in 98... IIRC. For your 16v conversion we'll need to know if there is an honest check engine light wired into your system. If not it's an easy fix. I'm going off of memory here so you should probably verify with some google searching. The violet/yellow wire going to the ECU is that CEL signal, it completes the ground for the CEL light, so keyed +12v to one side of your CEL light and that violet/yellow to the - gnd side of the light, during key on/engine off it will glow to show its working, key on/engine on it will be off, unless it has something to tell you, it will flash codes with flashes and pauses and that list of codes is readily available all over the net. If your not able to find it just post your codes here and you will get the answers. If you wanted to not install the light you could use a simple test light just to read the codes using that violet/yellow wire and 12v.

If in the unlikely event that it's a 98+ it will be an OBDII and there should be a scanner port somewhere, but I have never really heard of the later engines used for the conversions since the wiring is more complex.
