Post Numerous posts on Sammy stalling, fuel consumption, etc

There have been numerous posts lately on Sammy's stalling, missing, high fuel consumption, etc. There is an Auto Zone link that may help explain the feedback carburetor system used only on the 1986 - 1989 1.3L engines.

If you have any of these symptons:
1. Engine Stalling
2. Higher than normal fuel consumption
3. Hard to start

There are instructions on how to test the system manually.

The information is under license from Delmar Publications and may not be copied here, but you can follow the link to the Auto Zone site.

My particular problem was a bad fuel mixture control solenoid valve and after replacing this solenoid, it runs like a new Sammy!

Good luck!

i was thinking this as well... as i've come to understand, certain older vehicles that are carburated with mostly rubber fuel line. this line may be suseptible to the new fuel mixed with ethanol partially deteriorating. a quick fixed ive heard from a number of guys with cjs is to disconnect the line at the carb and back at the filter and blow the line out with an air compressor... lucky me mine is fuel injected and that hasnt been my fix... phewwwoie...

Interesting... I did a little more research on the ethanol issue and found an interesting link ===> Classic/Antique Car Repair: gasahol, ethanol gas, flex hoses

It appears that 100% alcohol could present some problems, but the 10% blend is much less likey to be a problem.. Most gas lines are now neoprene and not rubber.
Ethanol And Effects On The Fuel System

The 85% blend of ethanol and gasoline may require engine modifications.

You might try this link ===> AutoZone.com | Membership Benefits

Otherwise register on Autozone, put in your vehicle infomation and search for Repair Guides and then Carburetor.

haven't they been putting ethanol in gas sence the 80's? Also keep in mind that fuel lines (rubber or neoprene) will degrade over time. To help with this porb. i put a second fuel filter near the carb you could also replace your old fuel lines. The Samurai (mine at lest) has a rubber fuel line between the fuel pump and the carb and another set on the fuel filter by the gas tank so replace all of these if you replace any of them. it should not cost that much or take that long.

And the weber carb. has a lot less to go wrong with it than the stock one, but that can be cost a lot of money and most people have problems getting it adjusted right.
