Question about 1990 Daihatsu Rocky
We just bought a 1990 Rocky Daihatsu and it overheats. The thermostat has been replaced, the radiator has been re-built and the air conditioner has been removed. What else could it be.?

The thermostat problem caused overheat, because overheat your head gasket maybe broke up and leak,
1. check the tail pipe see if there is steam blow out.
2. check the oil cap,see if there is steam white bubbles
If you got, that probably your gasket broken.
3. put a piece of cardboard in the front of the engine, open the radiator cap. fillup water.
4.start the engine and let's run at least 30 minutes, see whether it overheat or not.
5. check the radiator water, see if it is circling. if it is not circling, probably the water pump doesn't work.
6. you will find out whether leak or not.
The cheapest way to stop engine gasket leaking, if it is not too big, go to parts store get a bottle of good stop leak and try it. sometimes you can stop the leak area. good luck. Frank

SOURCE: I have a 1992 Daihatsu
FYI, In the USA they're Rocky's, in the UK they're called Sportracks and in Australia they are Ferozas But they are all F300s (narrow track) or F310s (wide track). Other countries also use one of these three names (I think most of Europe use the Feroza title). There's also a slightly larger variant with a 2 ltr, 2.8 ltr and 2.8 ltr turbo which, in Australia is called a Rocky, In the UK it's a Fourtrack but I'm not sure about the USA. www.warfs.org (USA) and www.outerlimits4x4.com (AUS) are both excellent resources for further information. NB You need to register with outerlimits4x4 before you can see the Daihatsu link.
