Most times engine surging is caused by a manifold vaccuum leak. Lightly spray some carburetor cleaner around the intake manifold and vaccuum lines to check for a leak.

Is replacement of 2007 Daihatsu Sirion 1.3 fanbelt a relatively simple task or is it for a professional mechanic only?

DO IT YOURSELF... It IS fiddly but perfectly do-able.. easiest way to do it is to remove plastic 'dirt shield' from driver's side inner wing (next to drive shaft and brake line) obviously wheel removed, or rotated is ok.. removal of modern plastic 'tat' is simple (area of cylinder head) allowing as much finger access as possible..not much room down the side of these puppies!! Next you need to de-tension the 'serpentine' belt BUT I WOULD RECOMEND DRAWING BELT & PULLEY SET UP FIRST or taking several photos.. as a reminder of if belt goes over or under (makes sense when you see it) Use blunt engineer's screwdriver (or any blunt long driver, rod, etc) to help push and pull old and new belt about.. REMEMBER TO RE-TENSION THE TENSIONING PULLEY...BUT DONT OVER DO IT!! THE BELT WILL TIGHTEN EVEN MORE AFTER SHORT RUN IN.. ALLOW SLIGHT DEFLECTION.. 6 to 10mm should do... cleanliness is the key really, as with all engine jobs(!) Allow 2hrs to do... if you've never done before... ok?

How much engine Oil?

The engine oil capacity of a Daihatsu Sirion, 1000 cc Auto, 1999 is roughly 2.5L assuming the sump was drained and new oil filter installed.
This amount will bring the oil level on the dipstick to the upper line.
As a caution, put in 2L initially, then run the engine for a few moments then switch off. After a few minutes recheck cleaned dipstick level and top up as necessary.

1999 Daihatsu Sirion

Your engine is probably an EJ-DE twin cam 12 valve.

Generally Daihatsu belts have marks on them that line up with dimples on the sprockets for the intial phasing. You rotate the engine to top dead centre on No1 piston and install the belt from there. The cams should be not be putting any pressure on the intake and exhaust valves of No1 when phased correctly.
