Question about 1990 Daihatsu Rocky
I already cleaned out fuel filter. As engine starts to warm up, you can actually hear it make a clicking noise and the sound of motor instantly changes for the worse

Errors codes would be the logical thing to look at first. You may need to ask Toyota for the procedure in retrieving them.
Check that there aren't any obvious cracks in vacuum hoses.
Try pinching the PCV valve hose. If it stabilises you need to clean with some carby cleaner or replace.
The H series engines are prone to this and can generally be tracked to a vapour lock in the coolant hoses on the throttle body air valve (idle circuit).

ok.. for starters you need to check why you are loosing revs.. it could be your powersteering switch on your steering rack not working.. just bridge switch to test.. revs should not drop on steering.. then check fuel pump relay.. and efi relay.. theese cars are gettin on.. so could be faulty with long use..heat related.. insert a visual inline fuel filter and when it stalls check fuel flow... aswell as put a little fuel in the vacum hose line and see if it starts to confirm its a fuel issue... if the visualis fuel flow than its fuel pump related.. wires can come loose of pump .. as they travell under rear seat.. and into tank.. ... good luck

SOURCE: driving down the road it
There is a small cone shaped fuel filter located just before the fuel pump. It is inside the rubber hose that attaches to the pump. This is an often overlooked/unknown filter as there is another large one located on the firewall. Most folks change that one without cleaning the cone shaped one. Good luck!

SOURCE: Daihatsu Rocky will not start.
Take the fuel line off the tank side of primer and connect a plastic jar full of diesel there and see if it starts. If not disconnect fuel line from primer side of fuel pump and see if fuel gets through to injectors. If not problem is in pump. If you have fuel and still wont start it will likely be glow plugs. You can short them out with a wire from positive battery terminal to plate joining all glow plugs. (make sure you disconnect it after 30 seconds or so or they will burn out) The engine will probably not start at all if the glow plugs dont work. (all this advice is from experience)
