Very very old carb, and very hard to get parts or find a mech, who ever saw one. ever.
i can direct you to the books for free, but diagnosing carbs, is a hands on, show an tell thing, that takes all day.
its all here, all the time.

SOURCE: suzuki samurai wont stay running at idle why? will

Sounds like you have a air flow problem not real familiar with the suzuki but it may have a air flow adjustment or either a set screw for idle control to maby idle it up just a little.

I have a Weber carb on a Suzuki samurai. Runs ok but continues to try to run after turning off


this is caused by mixture getting past the idle and being sucked into the combustion chambers and being ignited by the hot spots and combustion pressures
Very common on early english cars and some american cars
The japanese carbies had a solenoid valve that fitted into the idle circuit so that when the ignition was turned off , the solenoid closed off that idle circuit and prevented the problem
you may have to "play " with the idle mixture screws to get a better mix so that the mixture is too rich to run on or change the weber to a model that has the solenoid shut off

If the problem is not a vac leak, it could be the idle circuit inside the carb. You may have to replace or rebuild the carb to fix it.

1987 Samurai idles fine. Above idle goes lean, runs rough, mc dwell 0. Rebuilt carb., no change. replaced with rebuilt carb., no change. Timing bounced around when engine running bad, replaced dist....


87 has no ECU. so must be an engine swap to a 89 or newer tracker
or last sammi that did have EFI.
you said EFI and Carb in same paragraph and that is a contradiction.
post to my bbs for more help.

post a link to a photo of your engine, many sammy cars have a newer engine and EFI added. no matter we can fix it, but you need to learn whats under the hood first, photos rule in this word.

I have an 87 samurai that has been sitting for about 8 months-ish. i started it maybe a couple times a month till i had the money to replace the rearend/transfer. now that its back together, it will start...


best guess is carb. try some sea-foam in the fuel tank and never let a carb. set with ethanol fuel alwise add some stay-bil to the tank if your going to have to let it set.

New carberater and a mechanic needed!


Even if you do it yourself you need to adjust it.I would get another mechanic to look at it also.Have you tried cleaners? 1 type you add to the gas the other you remove the air bonet and spray into the top of carb while running (have someone press on the gas lightly so you don't stall.Have you tried to increase the idle via the adjusting screw? has the auto choke been tested..adjusted? Good Luck.
