    ive had my sambar for about a month and half now and havent had many problems until about 3 weeks ago i noticed one day it was smoking real bad just all of a sudden. So i still had a waranty i took it back to the dealership to get it checked out. with the luck i have the truck didnt smoke whatsoever. so he told me it might have been some buildup in the exhaust that blewout the tailpipe. So i took it back home and didnt have anymore problems with it smoking, every now and then it will smoke a little when it is started but quickly stops smoking. and havent had much more problems with it until about 2 weeks ago i noticed a loss in power. I drove the truck back and forth to work on the farm everyday. when i first got the truck it would get up and go. now all of a sudden it has a problem getting to 80 kms. Now just this afternoon took it on a short trip up the road, drove fine and when i go to start it up it started but when i put it in reverse it had no power and just died. what would you say to look for or at a point in the right direction would be helpful

    thanks joey

    got the truck going turned out it doesnt run on unleaded gas with a ethynol blend. drained all the gas out put some premium gas in and she fired right up
