My '94 Carry recently lost virtually all its acceleration power. I saw that several folks here also had similar problems and I read the threads to see what I could learn from their trials. After going through a few easy visual checks (plugs, distributor, choke operation), I decided that my problem was most likely in the carburetor. I was just getting my nerves set to begin doing vacuum checks on that "octopus" of lines when I stumbled across a few folks recommending something called "Sea Foam". Being a real skeptic, I did a quick internet check and found that most folks who try it say it actually does what the company claims. I figured that I had nothing to lose, so today I bought new fuel filter and a can of Sea Foam at my local NAPA store. My first step was to shoot a few squirts directly into the air intake of the carb at idle using an old syringe. That worked a bit, but I was really wanting to clean the fuel path better. I disconnected the fuel line going from the gas tank to the fuel filter and stuck the hose right down in the can and let the truck suck out about half the can into the fuel system. I was expecting the engine to sputter and die, but it seemed to run just fine at idle, so I shut it off, hooked the fuel line back up, and let everything sit for about 15 minutes to see if the Sea Foam would loosen anything up. When I started it back up, the engine ran smooth for around 10 seconds and then I got the engine reaction I had expected earlier...coughing, sputtering, and lots of smoke out the tailpipe! According to what I had read, this was all a good sign that the Sea Foam was in the system. As the engine started to smooth out slightly, I shut it off again to let the system soak for another 10 minutes. To make a long story just a bit shorter, WOW!!!!! My Scarry has got its pep back thanks to that stuff. Definitely cheaper than new plugs and wires and a lot faster, too. I'm sure that it won't cure every ailment, but definitely worth trying very early in the diagnostic process for mini's experiencing power-loss symptoms.
