My Daihatsu Charades water pump melancholy

Hi
My car is a Daihatsu Charade G200 1994 1.3 l efi .
TThe waater pump is under the mounting brackets as are some of the housing bolts. Obviously my aim is to replace the existing pump the question is how do I support the engine in order to facilitate removal of said pump and not harm the engine.? I am short of funds at the moment this is why I have not hired an engine crane.

Just put a car jack under the sump with a piece of wood between the jack and the sump. Take up the weight of the engine and then release the engine mount if required. Make sure to put some chocks (e.g. brick) behind and in front of the wheels to stop the car rolling.

I need a oil cap for a 1992 Daihatsu Charade 1.3 GXi 16 Valve EFI do you know where i could purchase one


Any oil cap that will fit can be used, and it does not necessarily have to be an OEM Daihatsu cap. Your local auto parts store will have one that will work.

Water pump not working


I'm not quite sure about W/P location (probably under the timing belt, front cover)..........But you can go to your Public Library, they'll have a manual, and you can copy it FOR FREE!
Good Luck.

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.

96 daihatsu charade idling problem


1. Check your water sensor and plenum temperature sensor.

2. The throttle body has a wax element air valve used for cold idle. As the water temperature increases, the wax element closes the idle fast port. Being the highest part of the coolant system you may have an air lock, which can be solved by bleeding the hoses on the throttle body.

Tachometer and speedometer


The speedometer is a mechanically driven gauge so you need to check the cable is pushed in at the back. The tachometers on several model Charades are known to act up. There has been varying success by resoldering dry joints on the cluster PCB and the gauge itself.

How do I remove the water pump in a daihatsu G200 charade with a 1.3 litre .


If you have to sak you need to get a workshop manual. The engine hasn't changed since the late 80's, so a general Gregorys for Charade should be adequate.
