Running very poorly... Need Help
Listed at the bottom is a point by point description of what is going on. I will try to make it as acurate and as short as possible. Any help would be great.
- Start the Sammy in the morning (first start of day), it will idle for a second and then die. The only way to keep it going is to hold the accerlerator down a bit for about 30 secs and then it will idle high. Once it has warmed up idling it starts to idle like [censored] (bogging, up and down engine speeds)
- When driving the engine seems to bog (like missing power). Sometimes after driving the car for approx. 30 min the problem goes away (sometimes)
- While coming to a stop the engine bogs down like it will stall and frequently it does stall. I have to hold the break and gas while stopped to keep it going.
- While stopped at a light the engine will try to die. If I push the pedal a bit to get the idle up it goes up for a second but starts having problems again. The way to keep it alive is to apply and release the pedal (reving).
Where should I start. I have a Sammy book at home but thought that a list member might have had the same problem or this is a common occurance in older sammies.
Thanks again.. Keep Zuk'n
