My poor Samurai is dieing!!!
It all started this morning. I went to go to my friends house and I noticed it had a bit of a powerloss, "No problem it probly nothing." I said to myself.
An hour later we went out to my other friends house to look for a tranny for my 3.8v6 swap, and it had even less power. My friend kept asking me if I was to the floor and I kept saying yes.
Then after we were done looking for a tranny we went back to my friends house and it now has even less power. When we got back to my friends house we pulled one plug wire at a time thinking(HOPING) it was just a miss fire but it wasn't.
So then I went back home for supper and it took me about a mile in forth gear to the floor to get up to 60 m/h. I thought this was getting bad so I changed the fuel filter and went back to my friends house. Well it turned out it wasn't the filter. So then we took the carb apart thinking a jet might be clooged, and the secondary jet was but that wasn't the problem either as it didn't get any better, only worse when we went to our friends house to watch a movie and when we left I could only hit 35 m/h in fourth to the floor.

I have no idea what the problem is, so if anybody can help I will try/check just about anything. Tomorrow morning as long as it starts(knock on wood) I am going to check the compression and my valve train. I need to get it running good as this is my daily driver and don't have another vehicle to drive while I do the v6 swap.
If anyone can help me out please do, thanx.
