Daihatsu applause intermittent engine problem

Daihatsu applause intermittent engine light comes on and engine wants to cut out. Sometimes doesn't want to start. Got fuel and spark. Tried replacing computer, distributer, O2 sensor, spark plugs, nothing works. Mechanic told me car is possessed? I think it's electrical, maybe efi?

    Ha, no such luck. now the car is overheating, and with the thermostat taken out, the water is bubbling in the reservoir. I suspect head gasket problems, even though i replaced it about 12 months ago. I'v done nothing but spend money on the car, but its still the same. I'm only keeping it because I can't afford to buy another car at the moment.

    Ok, iv fixed my head gasket issues and solved the overheating problem. Still no success on the engine light issue however. I have tried cleaning the air filter, have soaked the O2 sensor (came up very shiny, and a lot of crap came out of it), have tried disconnecting the charcoal filter, and still no results. I found someone else on fixya who has the same problem. He tried replacing computer, distributor, fuel pump, cleaned out his lines and tank, replaced pump relay, had the throttle sensor inspected and adjusted, coolant temp sensor, plugs, leads, oil, fuel filters.
    Sounds like a common problem with applauses, and nobody can find answers.

    Hey, for anyone out there thats interested, i have found a solution to the problem. I have now had 3000kms trouble free motoring. After having autoelectrians tell me my car was possessed, I have stumbled on a solution. So simple i could kick myself. Look over your leads and check they are in good nick, but most importantly, your high tension lead ( the one that goes to the coil). Pull it out of the coil, and shove the rubber boot on the end further up the lead, then shove it as far as you can into the coil. Then simply slide the boot back down over the socket. Thats it. Aaargh!

Central locking system


Sounds like this car was under water...????

Not knowing the year is a down point.!

I would remove and check all fuse block relays and switches. Both under the hood in engine area and under the dash.
If it was me, I would bring it to a auto electrical shop and have them check to system.
