    The distributor is one of the major components of the ignition system; its often neglected by people. Get it checked; it has to be working perfectly.

    So today I took Suzuki cultus to Central Motors. Their (Forman) Head Mechanic did test drive and concluded its not Clutch. It's carbourator and timing needs to be adjusted. So carbourator was opened and found out to be a bit rusty and pieces of Mud. The mechanic advised me to get its Fuel tank checked as he assumed its full of mud. So first carbourator was washed with patrol and NASA sprayed. Timing adjusted with gun.

    Then inspected fuel filter it was Gary and had some brown thingy which I assume is mud and tank was Rusty too. So I decided to take fuel tank out. Their head Electrican and mechanics opened fuel tank and took petrol out for inspection. I was shocked how much dirty it was. I took some pictures of dirt which came out. I later decided to change fuel tank with fuel filter as old one will again throw mud in carbourator and the circle will go on.

    Knocking issue resolved and pick have increased considerably. Now I have been adviced to change a small pipe which connects fuel tank and comes out where we refill the fuel don't know what is it called as its seal was finished. Total cost 7500Rs which includes.

    Carbourator Serviced + Tuning + Fuel Tank (New) + Fuel filter (New)+ Wheel Balancing + Brake Serviced.

    Now I need to change its engine oil back to company recomended 10w 40 currently using 20w 40.

    One last thing I was told that Slow moving switch's wire is in pretty bad condition and I should get it changed. Where would I get it from and how much if anyone knows about that.


    Thanks everyone who contributed earlier on.

    It's a two wire switch connected with carbourator and works to control car in slow speed that's what mechanic said.

    that mechanic is a moron

    that "switch" is a cut off solenoid that cuts off fuel to the idle part of the carburettor. It has no part in controlling any sort of fuelling.

    Hmmm. Thanks for the explanation. My car does jerks sometime in first gear on starting to move could that be distributor cap , rotor or plug wires.

    slow to respond to accelerator input is usually a sign of bad accelerator plunger pump in carburettor or badly adjusted carburettor. Im pretty sure your carby is completely messed up (adjustment wise) because you just wrote that the mechanic says the solenoid is the slow jet - this is enough evidence that the guy has no idea what he is doing.

    adjusting a cultus carby is not that hard for someone who knows how to set it.

    technically speaking when tuning a caburettor engine the caburettor is the last item to adjust. Everything before that is done first like ignition system, centrifugal advance, vacuum advance, valve clearances (not possible in your case)

    ^^My dad adjusts the mixture in our Cultus using a vacuum gauge. The idea is that the engine will pull maximum vacuum at the perfect idle mixture. Not really sure about the accuracy of this method, but the result is usually water dripping from the exhaust.

    8-9 for short trips when the engine is not fully heated up. Up to 15 on Kashmir highway/GT road. The car burns a litre of oil every 1000 kms or so. The afr has not been adjusted in quite a while. Btw, the engine is still original, and due for a rebuild, at 310k km.

    oldschool way of adjusting was the vacuum gauge like zainmehdi said, or even a grease pencil dot on the exhaust manifolds (requires tons of experience)

    the other way was a propane gas injector that you fed the engine air intake - ideal conditions dictate that your engine should idle slightly high with a slight propane addition in a nicely adjusted mixture.

    I have seen all and only used the first and last one, I do use the grease pencil dot on EFI engines to determine if a cylinder is not upto spec
