Question about 1991 Daihatsu Charade

2 Answers

Engine missing my 1991 charade started missing on friday night, I replaced the spark plugs on saturday morning thinking that was the problem, seemed to run a bit better but still missing especially at lower rpms. also I went to start it last night and the battery was dead. recharging the battery right now and will have it tested. any ideas? could the flat battery be related in any way?

    I have changed the fuel filter as it was pretty blocked, also replaced the injectors and the distributor cap, it runs really good now except when I take off from a start still misses a bit but does not miss at idle any more. I also bought a new battery.

See if the distributer cap or cable to plugs leak, during the dark night, you open the hoodle and you will see the spark from the leak distributer cable, change that leak one first.

If it is no leak at all, maybe your timing.

How old is your battery?

Hi there you need to check to make shure that your alternator is making atleat 13.50 volts wher you recharge the battery sounds like your alt could need some work . let me explain the computer needs 13.00 volts dc to run correctly fuel injectors too lets just put a volt meter across the battery wonce you have it charged and running let me know with a fixya if the alternator isnt 13,00 volts ok thanks for using a great problem solving website like fixya , good luck

My Ford F250 has an intermittent miss. I have replaced the spark plugs ,wires, cap and rotor. When I replaced the Spark plugs the miss went away for 1 day. The next day the miss came back when I started...


You can find the miss by starting the engine and pulling one plug at a time. when you find the one that doesn't change how the engine runs, there is your problem area. things to do are, first I would switch the wire and see if the miss goes away. If it doesn't then pull the plug and see if it is fouled out. do a compression test on that cylinder. if the compressionis low you can spray some wd40 in the cylinder and retest. if the pressure comes up then the rings are bad, if it doesn't then you have a valve problem.let me know

1991 Camry wont start in cool humid weather


anne, it sounds to me like dampness in the ignition process, if the engine is turning over at the turn of the key,then check the rubber ring seal inside your distributer cap(thats the coloured plastic cap with all the leads to the spark plugs) if its perished or showing signs of distortion,replace the whole cap. if its seems ok then try starting your engine at night or at least grey dark,open the bonnet and watch for sparks coming from any of the HT leads ( cable like things) that go to the spark plugs.If present either spray with "sparkseal"(short term solution) or replace the leads.Try this and if it doesn,t solve it , get in touch ok?

Still missing


hi there i seems that you have replace alot of components after driving for a few days to let the ecm relearn with the new components . is it still missing at low speed ? seems you may have a spark plug thats not offering up its full potential please isolate what plug is the weak one by removing one spark plug wire from plug at a time to listen to the engine and see what plug is causing miss ok good luck you could replace all but this is an extra expense take a look

Won't start!


the spark from the starter is a loose wiring or short starter,but the main thing is you can crank it,check it, you have a spark at plugs if yes check if your pump is working
