Question about 1992 Daihatsu Charade

Cuts out while idling

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.

Engine has rough engine at 1250 revs, tickover is fine and over that is ok too, sometimes cuts out at junctions


Start with cleaning the throttle body, idle air control motor, and MAF sensor. After that, tune up.

Pathfinder "cuts out" at 2,300 rpm


Replace your MAF, its a little pricey around $280.00 or so but this will clear the code but make sure you have the ECM reprogrammed to perform a "learning" sequence since sometimes the code will not clear even though the vehicle will run like new. This reprogramming will most likely have to be a dealer performed procedure.

Hello, I have 1996 Ciera with rebuilt engine pretty new, also fuel filter and fuel pump replaced but I have a problem, the car starts and runs well cold but once car has been running for a few hours, either stopping or coming to a stop it starts to idle roughly and has come to a stop at different occasions.

ERRATIC & LUMPY RUNNING? AND LACK OF POWER


I suspect that you have air leak from air induction system. try to chek the breather hose. there are two hoses behind the intake manifold one is connected to valve cover to PCV , check the hose condition and replace it if necessary.

1998 range rover p38 2.5 dse auto engine stalls


Sounds like something is overheating then and possibly a sensor. Not familiar with Rovers but might be a problem with the CAS and/or CPS which tells the ECU the motor is running and when to fire. Also maybe the IAC is bad and when you go from throttle to idle it can't control it and allows it to die.

Rev counter jumps whilst idling and then engine cuts out


Your problem sounds as if the thermo sensor....which controls the air fuel ratio when engine is cold....is faulty. It is a common fault on this model.
This is not an expensive part, and takes only a short time to fit.
Good luck

I am currently experiencing engine idle problems, i have recently purchased the vehicle and the engine has been fine until now. When i stop at junctions and the engine is idleing it seems to now and again...


You need to replace your IAC (idle air control valve). The IAC, like it sounds, control the idle of your car. When they go bad they will cause the low idle and stalling. The IAC is located on the throttle body and is usually held on with a couple of screws. It is an easy relatively cheap fix that you can take care of by yourself. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!
