In my past dealings with these 3 cylinder engines, common faults (depending on the engine) are:

  • contact point pitting/burns (clean, scrape/replace);
  • rotor;
  • distributor cap;
  • ignition coil;
  • ignition coil ignition B+12 connector;
  • ignition coil loose ground.
Please check above mentioned components.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Daihatsu Sirion EL 2001 model began by occasionally mis-firing above 3500 revs. Problem went away temporarily after spraying WD40 on plugs and leads. Now ticks over ok but as soon as you start to depress...

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Spraying WD40 may have cleared the carbon deposit on the spark plugs. As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you replace the spark plugs and plug wires to resolve the problem. If the spark plugs and plug wires are worn out the current tends to jump which can cause misfire specially during take off.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

The toxic fume monitoring warning light is constantly illuminated on my 2002 1.4 clio. also the car is runnning very lumpy as if it is running on 3 cyclinders. can you identify the problem pls. tks.

hi from uk the light on is saying for some reason exhaust emmisions are incorrect therefor missfire =runnig on 3 cyls resulting in one of cyls is emmiting unburned fuel into exhaust possibility ? so 1st diy checks you can do?= remove each spark plug and compare each as to colourof burning? you are looking for one ? plug difference in either colour or damp/wet ? or brown in colour compared to other three if you find one? then concentrate on this cyl ? this plug may be defective/not firing? look for crack/s in porceline ? or it may be the plug lead or the ign coil that feeds this lead with spark?to plug you could check spark to plug by fitting a good plug to lead then hold plug to engine earth turn engine over with keyignition on check if plug is sparking ? if not? may be lead or coil if spark present? then try with origional plug out of that cyl this thenif not sparking would suggest plug fault ? however if the plug of the cyl in doubt was brown more than other three ? this would indicate possible exhaust valve leakage/burning out ? if you try above suggestions that i hope you understand ? i hope you find fault ? however if you find fault and req further info? by all means keep in touch if you req advice/more info best wishes n/west of uk
