1988 suzuki samurai, runs fine cold but when it warms up starts missing (undrivable). Something is cutting off the fuel to the 2 rear cylenders. you can look in the carb and see one jet just about shuts off while the other seems good.

My '87 samurai sputters badly when i give it throttle.


Try changing the fuel filter.If it is running ok at lower speeds around 50kmh/30mph I would say fuel supply is the problem.
Hope this helps.

Hi, You need to plug this into a code reader and see what codes are stored the most common reason for the engine cutting out is internal fuel pump failure will also cause poor starting

When 87 suzuki stops it dies, hesitation when starting


I've never seen a samurai without a PCV valve hooked up. You sure its just missing it cuase that is what releases the pressure build up in the engine. If not working/installed then you're gonna get piston blow by, oil burning, and a rough running engine.
