Question about 1992 Daihatsu Charade
1.3L '93 HCE Charade (Injected), just done the head after blowing a gasket, done about a 100km perfectly, now engine is surging at Idle, speed of surge approx every second by about 400rpm at idle. does this sound like fuel flow problems? or the computer trying to compensate for something else. Didnt do Fuel filter yet, but this problem happened suddenly, not a gradual thing. Timing is bang on, plugs look good..... the engine is starting to push water out of the overflow bottle again tho :( so either retension tehead and hope for the best or rip it off and go again, but not sure this would cause the surging problem??
My charade surges when the water level is low. So if you didn't skim your head before torquing it down, you might not have sealed it properly, and water may be seeping out. Or it might just be a faulty radiator cap

I think your gut feel may be correct. If you have overheated the engine before, it;s important to have the head skimmed prior to replacing the head gasket.
When you fill with coolant, it's important your bleed any air at the throttle body.
