Question about 1992 Daihatsu Charade
I have had a look at the water jacket at the top of the engine, the car gets really hot and when you stop you can hear the water bubbling into the expansion tank. I had the car serviced but the mechanic said it was fine ?? I have my doubts that he had a look.
It shouldn't be bubbling into your overflow tank.If you follow the top radiator hose from the radiator to the other end of the top radiator hose the housing it connects to has your thermostat inside it.

On the Daihatsu Applause 16 valve engine the thermostat is NOT located under the alloy housing that attaches the top radiator hose to the head. It is located ay the back of the engine block at the opposite end of the engine just above where the alternator is situated. Three 10mm bolts hold the thermostat housing to the block. The bottom radiator hose is attached to the housing. All you need to do is disconnect the water temp sensor wire, undo the three bolts & push it toward the alternator. Remove the thermostat from the block replacing it with a new one. A rubber gasket fits around the outside of the thermostat & I used a little silicone on the gasket to hold the thermostat while you re-install the housing. Don't forget to reconnect the temp sender wire & fill with coolant.
