SOURCE: 88 daihatsu charade idling problems

You need to check the throttle stop cushion is making contact. The engine will hunt if you have air in the throttlebody coolant pipes, if the coolant sensor is faulty or if the TPS isn't calibrated.

SOURCE: low idling on daihatsu charade 83 model

My first thouhts are your ignition is still your problem, but upu haven't made it clear if the problem exists only when the engine is cold.

On the Charde you must push the pedal down before pulling the choke lever for the choke and fast idle linkages to engage... then start the engine.

The idle circuit consists of an emulsion tube and a solenoid. The solenoid is on the back of the carby and has a green wire running to it. If there isn't 12 volts on this at startup you wont be able to get the engine to idle without pedal assistance.

The carburettor also has an acceleration plunger that squirts a shot of fuel into the engine when trying to increase speed. This has a concetrina boot that can leak. It is situated on to op the carby.

The vacuum hoses need to connected correctly, especially one of the distributor hoses. That one must be connected to AD port on the carby. The following diagram is one of my modified layouts, but should work satifactorily. It is configured so that you can set the ignition timing a little more advanced than factory. When you set the timing make sure both hoses to the dizzy are removed and blocked. You adjust the dizzy position until the dimple on the flywheel lines up with the notch in the timing plate above.

Diagram here

For a test try blocking the hose coming from the oil cap to the bottom of the carby. The cap is also a PCV valve and if it's not clean it can allow excess air into the engine at idle.

My feeling is your points gap is not correct. It should be about the thickness of a hacksaw blade when open. The rubbing block on the points is notorious for rapid wear if hi temp grease hasn't been applied to the rotor lobes. A small gap will cause arcing under load and not provided sufficient dwell time for the coil to charge, resulting in a weak spark, missing, over fueling and lack of acceleration.

I also recommend you replace the plugs with Bosch Super 4's. They will last you a very long time and tend to be very forgiving with older worn engines.

SOURCE: Size of Jets for 1984 Daihatsu Charade G11 Turbo Carburettor

You won't need to change the jets. We have had the Cb60 pumping 75- 90kW on the stock carby. Are you trying to increase performance there are better ways: e.g. RHF5 series turbo, lightened flywheel (4.5kg) with Mazda 121 clutch plate and 1600lb pressure plate. Swap in a G202 electronic dizzy& coil, and replace vacuum advance diaphragm.

Carby hat looks like this:

SOURCE: Need to change a WATER PUMP on my DAIHATSU CHARADE GLXI 1994

The location of the pump is on the left hand side of the engine when standing at the front of the car.
You will see (if you have aircon) two belts.
If you stand to the side of the car to look at the belts.
From memory the inner one (closest to the engine) drives the aircon compressor.
The outer one drives the water pump, you will see the pump belt wheel towards the back of the engine.

Getting into the pump is a bit tricky.
I basically unbolted the engine mount from the body which then allowed me to jack up the engine as I needed it to give me space to unbolt everything until the 3 water pump bolts can be seen.
Just make sure you know which bolts go back where.
From memory there were about 20 bolts to undo before I got to the water pump.

Aircon compressor bracket bolt I only loosened them from the engine not fully removed, the same with the alternator I only removed the adjusting bolt to remove the belt.

Oh I just thought of something to do before you remove the tension on the belts... loosen slightly the 4 small bolts that are on the wheel that bolts onto the water pump.

I think the only size sockets and spanners I used were 10, 12, 14 & 17.

It took me around 2 hours to get it all undone, and close to the same to put it all back together with the new pump.

It was kinda straight forward as you can see what you need to unbolt because you know what bit you need to get into.

I hope this helps a little, I am not sure if it is clear in the way I have written it. But feel free to ask any questions.

Click on the following free direct Link. It has the Timing: Belt and Mark Diagrams for the 1988 Daihatsu Charade 1.0L 3-Cylinder which is the closest to the Hijet. Plus additional Instructional and Directional Diagrams.

Note: the annotated Align Matings Marks located on the engine casing, or the Belt Alignment Marks.
I owned one of these while living in Japan.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!

What should the valve timing be on a 1990 daihatsu charade 1990 3 cylinder


Ignition timing should be checked and adjusted whenever spark plugs are replaced or any distributor maintenance is performed. Ignition timing at 1000 RPM or less should be as follows: on 1989 1.3L/4-79 engines, 3-7°BTDC; on 1990-92 1.3L/4-79 engines, 0-2°; on 1.6L/4-97 engines, 1-5°.

Alignment


Check for cracking in the shell, the G100 series had a problem.

The LCA can bend if subjected to abuse. You can check for too much play by raising the car and using a pinch bar to force movement.

Similarly use a bar to test for weak or sheared engine mounts.

Eng.t/plant 1.6 applause into g100 3cyl


It's doable. Some of G100 series (G100, G101, G102) had the fours fitted, so you should be able to do a cut and shut from a donor car.

The 1.6 HDE engine is pretty much the same physical dimensions as the 1.3 HCE and 1.5 HEE. The HDEG is the Detomaso version, which includes a different cam profile, higher compression and extractors.

Beware the infamous G100 chassis cracks around the front suspension, if you decide to raise the ponies..
