Question about 1992 Daihatsu Charade
The car seems to run fine, although it is occasionally a little "lumpy" at low revs. When it stops, such as at junctions, the revs can suddnly drop and it cuts out.
It has just been serviced, but this hasn't rectified the problem. The mechanic couldn't find anything wrong (the symptoms were described to him). It had a new air filter during the service.
Get your mechanic to change the heat sensor which regulates the amount of fuel being sent to the motor. There are not very many mechanics who will find this problem, we found it by going back to the manufacturer. This solved the problem completely.

Check for electrical system, cracks inside distributor cap, bad spark plug cables

Check you've new plugs and no splits in your leads. Also make sure that you're getting enough output from your alternator. Rendell80

It sounds like you both have a vacuum leak or a fuel volume problem. The O2 sensor should be monitored during a test drive to confirm this. You can use a propane enrichment unit to pinpoint a vacuum leak if this is the concern. Both of these tests are above the average do it yourself-er, so if you want the info., I will do my best to explain it but I suggest a technician that does smog testing and/or drive-ability concerns regularly.
