HI! I have a 1992 g101 1.3 Efi daihatsu Charade. My engine lamp is light. I can got the error code, and its a thermosensor. I think this is the green ended one...

Yes, the sensor on the left side of the engine with the green 2-pin connector is the coolant temperature sensor for the ECU. The single-pin sensor on the top center of the engine is the thermal switch for the radiator cooling fan.

The temperature sensor for the ECU can cause your fuel ratio to be LEAN or RICH and can cause hesitation, stalling, hard/no starting, or engine stumble. Also be sure to check the connector pins to make sure they are clean, dry and tight. Oil or water contamination in the connector can affect the resistance in the circuit and make the ECU "think" that the engine is colder or hotter than it really is.

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.
