Customer Question
My 1996 Hijet is...

My 1996 Hijet is hard to start first time in the day but hat starts with a touch of the key there after. It is carburetor modal I suspect one of the 16 or so vac hoses is wrong.

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

Yes, all cables replaced and full charged. works the same if boosted.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model of your car?

1996 diatshu hijet mini truck s110p ER-GS 659cc

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your MINI yourself? What have you tried so far?

Compression tests, spark tests, about everything. Yes myself.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

New fuel pump, electric with pressure test. I suspect hose routing. Cant find a decent readable hose diagram.

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

Unfortunately I do not show a diagram for the wiring or hoses on this model here.I do know though that if the carburetor is dirty or full of carbon it can cause this issue as well as a fault with a component like an acceleration pump in it.I would have the carburetor checked and cleaned or possibly rebuilt and make sure there are no open vacuum hoses or leaks causing this fault needing repaired.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
