    I just got my 1993 carry and all of a sudden it stopped running. It would just crank and not do anything it was running fine up till then. So I pulled one of the spark plug wires and dam near pulled the engine out with it they were so frozen on there. After i was able to get the wires off I pulled the plugs and still had sparks. I am nat knowledgeable yet with these trucks so I am looking for some help I ordered a new set of wires plugs and distributor and rotor. SO any help would be appreciated.

    If you have spark that means you have no fuel. (fuel filters or fuel pump maybe)

    boy scouts rule
    spark, fuel, and air

    missing one...no go
    check for spark.....you did!
    check for fuel
    check to see of a mouse moved into the airbox

    dist run off of cam... go with the fuel problem search
    remove the fuel line from the carb and see if it spits gas at you(engine is not hot) when you turn the key

    Take the cover off the air filter, remove filter, carefully wipe out the air box, shoot some starting fluid into carb. If engine starts and then dies you have a fuel delivery problem. Most likely fuel filter or fuel pump problem. If you have a 2 nd. person and it starts with starting fluid have them start engine and keep it running with the starting fluid while you put your hand on the fuel pump located near fuel tank. It should have a bump, bump, bump to it. If it is bumping its working. Some fuel pumps have there own screen filter inside fuel pump. Ive had one that was stopped up before. check your main fuel inline fuel filter. If its ok check and see if fuel pump screen is clogged. Its located on the feed side of fuel pump.

    I ordered a fuel filter and new plugs and wires yesterday they should be here tomm. I had a faint spark on all three of the plugs but I think they were the original plugs and wires and distributor. They were all corroded to the plugs and wires. I am new to the mini truck ownership and still have a lot to learn. I sprayed starting fluid into the carb the other day before taking off the plugs and wires and still could not get it to fire over. I will let you all know after new plugs wire, cap and rotor hope this is the problem.

    When I received my Carry that was the first thing I did. Plus air filter and oil change. Mine works nice since (8000Kms) but I will need a radiator.

    misspilot, you are on the right track. I recently had a guy from Reno,Nv call me saying his truck was running on the weak side. He had done all the fuel fixes. New air filter, new fuel filter, sea foam the fuel tank and carb. He still was running weak. The last thing he did was pull the plugs. They were oil fouled big time. He installed new plugs and he said it was like installing a new engine. He's got more power than he ever had. Truth be told most of the older trucks need the air filters change, fuel filter changed, plugs change and carbs. cleaned.
    I had a Suz. dd51t that had a stumble on the lower end. I did all the above and couldn't get rid of the stumble. The truck idle's was fine and mid to upper range was fine. It just had a little stumble to it when shifting from gear to gear. I got a carb. kit and installed it. I believe it was the needle valve that was the cause for the stumble. The truck ran like new just by adding the carb. kit.
    Last thing I would look at would be coil pack. I have never changed one out yet. But there have been a few people that have.

    If you use starting fluid to start this be gentle. I don't know if you have had any experience with it so excuse me for giving you more info than you need. Use only a small shot just until it fires. I have seen a lot of engine damage caused by fogging in the starting fluid and these are very small engines. Like boy scout fluid to start a fire : use sparingly.
