Question about 1988 Daihatsu Charade

Car idling - carburetor

I am not a mechanic by profession, but have a little knowhow on that trade.I recently buy a 1988 daihatsu charade(3 cylinder engine).Due to the presence of oil in the radiator water i was opted to replace the head gasket,regrind the engine valve,and replace head seals.When the head was done i find it hard to start the engine,so i buy a new distributor contact point,spark plugs,and high tension cables.The car was able to start but i find it hard to keep a good engine idling.Is my carburator defective.Could anyone kindly teach me how to adjust proper Air/Fuel adjustment.And one thing more, there is still bits of oil in my radiator water but not in the engine oil sump.I flushed it twice but still bits of oil appears.I urgently need an experts advice.Thank you

If you have oil in the water it smacks of a problems with the gasket or a crack in the head. Did you tension the head with a torque wrench? Did you retension after the first drive, with engine cool? What do the spark plugs look like?

Did you adjust the ignition timing after replacing the points?

Click on the following free direct Link. It has the Timing: Belt and Mark Diagrams for the 1988 Daihatsu Charade 1.0L 3-Cylinder which is the closest to the Hijet. Plus additional Instructional and Directional Diagrams.

Note: the annotated Align Matings Marks located on the engine casing, or the Belt Alignment Marks.
I owned one of these while living in Japan.

What should the valve timing be on a 1990 daihatsu charade 1990 3 cylinder


Ignition timing should be checked and adjusted whenever spark plugs are replaced or any distributor maintenance is performed. Ignition timing at 1000 RPM or less should be as follows: on 1989 1.3L/4-79 engines, 3-7°BTDC; on 1990-92 1.3L/4-79 engines, 0-2°; on 1.6L/4-97 engines, 1-5°.

Daihatsu charade randomly stalling


If its the 3 cylinder I would say your points need changing/adjusting. Make sure you have grease on the lobes where the rubbing block makes contact or the rubbing block will wear rapidly and cause the gap to close. The gap between the flat and the rubbing block should be about the thickness of an hacksaw blade. The points thesleves should not have any spikey protrusions (caused by arcing).

The small metal box with vacuum hoses attached is the hot idle compensator. It's not electrical and the soot is probably just some oil that has powdered form coming in contact with petrol fumes.

1988 daihatsu charade carburetor


If we are talking the three cylinder CB23 engine the mixture screw is hard to get to and has an anti tamper shroud to stop prying fingers.

The Aisan carby is pretty reliable and problems with them on these engines is usually due to improper vacuum hose connections, or improperly adjusted idle, fast idle and deceleration screws.

A/F ratio is around the standard 14.7, but being a carby you will not get consistent mixtures because the jets sizes are fixed . On an EFI engine you can control the fuel flow, but not so with jets.

If you do decide to give your carby a birthday make sure you only buy the Daihatsu genuine, because the after market units have issues with quality. The minor rebuild kit part No 0421287704000 and the major overhaul kit with plunger, needles, gaskets, clips, etc is part No 0421187729000.

If it was me I'd be concentrating on the hoses, the PCV valve, contact points in the dizzy and better spark plugs first. If you want much better idling and a bit better pull get an electronic dizzy and coil from a G200 series Charade.

88 daihatsu charade idling problems


You need to check the throttle stop cushion is making contact. The engine will hunt if you have air in the throttlebody coolant pipes, if the coolant sensor is faulty or if the TPS isn't calibrated.
