Question about 1992 Daihatsu Charade

1 Answer

Car will not start from cold

I have an automatic diahatsu move that has been left unrun for many months due to problems starting the car. The fuel pump and filter have been changed, it has been serviced and the garage have drained the petrol tank as they thought it had been contaminated and cleaned it. It still will not start when the outside temperature is really cold or if it has been left more that a day without it being started

Yes the best solution is to read the fault codes from the ECU.

This is a fuel injected engine and will rely on the coolant temp sensor, air temp sensor, MAP sensor and possibly the oxygen sensor to provide suitable fueling. I seem to recall the spark and injector timing is via a cam position sensor.

Your best bet might be to have a mobile tuner with an OBD reader make a visit.

You can try to retrieve them yourself:

A Nissan Titan v8 truck move very well but suddenly goes off snd will not start immediately untill it takes up to 5minute before it starts.pls can you pls help.


Possibly a fuel pump or fuel filter problem. A faulty pump can run for awhile, and then stop. If you keep turning the key on and off it might run again for some period of time, but eventually it will not run at all. On some cars and trucks you can hear the pump run when the key is in the start position. You could also have a blocked fuel filter.

My 11/2000 Diahatsu Terios starts if left but wont rev up over 2000rpm and slowly gets worse and cuts out and wont start like its starving for fuel?


I think you should check the fuellines and for sure the injectors,these are most probably blocked.It can also be the fuelfilter that is clogged
Staert by replacing the filter and try to start.Once its starts leave it running stationary and remove the fuellines one by one from the injectors.If you loosen the first one and the engine rpm go down a bit you know the injector is good...tighten the fuelline again and move on to the next one and so on.

Make sure you dont run out of fuel, make sure 1/4 tank of gas is always there and the reason is that the fuel pump should be submerged in the gas all the time, if not then it will heat up and die.
It would also be good practic to change the fuel filter once a year, if there is no external filter then ad one in line filter for your safety.
As for the mis at idle it could be due to bent valve, burnt valve seat, vacume leak, head gasket minor leak, bad coil, shorted plug, bad gas. If the engine light is on which it should have because of the missing then I would like to know the codes.

My car stoped running as if it were running out of gas but i have gas in it now it will only crank but not start it is a 92 BMW 320i


Has the fuel filter ever been replaced? Instructions are here. http://www.frontiernet.net/~papi/Filter.html
This car has two gas tanks, one on either side of the spare. The fuel pump that delivers fuel to the engine is on the right-hand side. When the left tank is less than half full, it requires a transfer pump to move the rest of the fuel over to the tank with the fuel delivery pump.
Those transfer pumps sometimes fail, or can simply come loose. When that happens, the car 'runs out of gas' though it still technically is one quarter full of fuel. It cannot access the rest of its fuel. This happened on my bosses '03 325 a few months ago.
If this is the problem, you can be sure to keep it more than half full of fuel until you can get it in to get it fixed.

sounds like you may have clogged the fuel filter due to debris on bottem of tank or burned out your fuel pump , Id try spraying starting fluid in the air filter duct and see if it starts then , if so you found your problem via above!!!!

the automatic gas shut off switch is located in the trunk tucked up under the wheel well I think on the left side for that car. you need to feel around for it and press a button on it to reset it.

1998 Chevy tahoe Hard to start when cold


Hello, yes the check valve is in the fuel pump assembly. The check valve is leaking and the pump will burn out soon. Unfortunately the aftermarket fuel pumps can be very unreliable. A good portion of problems we see on this site are from people who replace the pump sometimes twice and it still doesn't work.
