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...

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.
