Question about Daihatsu Charade
I have a 1997 Daihatsu Charade CS G203 1.5i manual that stalls when the car has warmed up.
The revs seem to drop too low and the car stalls.
This always happens when you clutch too slowly (take too long changing gear) while accelerating or when coming to a stop and you take it out of gear and roll to the stop. You have to usually keep your foot on the throttle a little to prevent it from stalling.
Every mechanic (including the manufacturer) cannot fix it - their only remedy is to increase the idle and the car ends up idling too high all the time.
Does anyone have a solution?
Check your PCV valve
spark plug model and condition
cracked vacuum hoses
overheated ignition coil

Cleaning out the PCV valve worked for me on a 98 1500cc Daihatsu Grand Move. 2 minute job

The fuel pump in the petrol tank has a sock that acts as a coarse filter. This sock gets clogged with muck causing the car to starve of fuel intermittently and lead to the stalling as you've described. If you pour in some injector cleaner (contains detergents) or methylated spirits it may just fix the problem. Condensation (water) in the fuel creates a slimy goop that clogs filters. It worked for me and my 1992 Daihatsu Charade, and have heard that other cars with similar symptoms have been cured in the same way, usually after expensive repairs have already proved unsuccessful . A cheap solution really! Try this first. Good Luck.
