    Daihatsu Charade G10

    Hi, I'm having problems getting my Charade started - it's been garaged for about 3 years.

    I've tried jump starting it (battery flat), and I also replaced the sparkplugs (being careful to use the ones specified). The result was that the engine turned over, but didnt catch.

    There definitely seemed to be a spark, and the air filter seemed pretty clean, so am I right in thinking I probably have a fuel problem? Should I try a new fuel pump? Does anyone know where I can get parts for a '81 Charade?

    Thanks in advance,

    Did you add anything to the fuel tank before storing it? If not, the fuel is probably goop. You might need to drain the tank, clean it with POR-15, and then change the fuel pump and/or fuel filter.

    Good luck!

    Thanks - i hadnt even thought about that! The car has been garaged for at least 3 years, so you're almost certainly right.
