This vehtcte is one of the class of vehicles
which have higher ground clearance anda
narrower track. Specific design charactaristics give them a higher center of
gravity than ordinary vehicles.
An advantage of the higher ground
clearance is a better view of the road
allow- ing you to anticpate problems. They
are not designed for cornering at the
same speeds as conventional 2-WheelDrive vehicles any more than low-slung
sports cars are designed to perform
salisfactorily under off-road conditions.

The fuel gauge indicates the approximate

The pointer does not return to "E" when the
ignition key is turned to the "ACC" or

indicates the approximate remaining fuel
amounl in the tank.

When the left end of the pointer is on the


ernpty line, a slight amount of fuel [about
3 liters (0.8 U.S. gal.)] is still available as a
reserve. We recommend that you make ita
habit to always keep the fuel level over 1/4
full to help ensure proper functioning of the

is interrupted by buildings or mountains,
thus making lt lmpossible to receive
FM broadcastfng. As a result, the
reception ranga of FM broadcasting is
narrower than AM rado slgnal.

FM radio wave

Fadeout
There are places where FM radio
signal becomes weak suddenly. This
is called "fadeout."
Fadeout means a phenomenon
where radio signals disappear. For
example. the radio signal becomes
extremely weak behind oostacles.
e.g. buildings and pales. When your
vehcle passes through these
places, no radio signal reaches your
antenna. At this point, a sound o
"Shatz, shatz .. ." is emitted. This is
inherent to FM radio signals, which is
caused by the unique way of transmission.
You can not avoid
this phenomenon.

Service area of FM broadcastlng

Transmitting antenna height 30 ft


Effective transmitting power 1 kW

FM atareo automotve rado 21 km (13 miles)

FM monophonic automotive radio 50 km (31 miles)

Stereo radio for houaehold use 101 km (63 miles)


tThe renga of cleer reception in the illustration above is one example on a flat
zona without any obatacles. This ranga mav very depeoding upon power, ground
configuration and so forth.)

In case that you listen to FM


broadcasting in your home, using a
stereo radio for household use, you
can enjoy olear FM broadcasting,
even if the radio signal is very
weak. by making the antenna higher
or use of a high sensitivity antenna.
On the other hand, if you listen to FM
breadcasting
using
your
automotive radio while driving, the
broadcasting is adversely at- fected
by many limiting factors. such as the

To fully catch the radio signal. make


sure that the antenna is extended to
the fullest length during FM reception.

Multlpath
Transmitting antenna

An FM radio signal reflects when it hits


buildings or mountains. When the antenna
of your vehicle simultaneously catches
direct radio signa! and reflective radio signa! a sound of "Jutu, julu ... ." is emitted or
the voice of a lemale announcer becomes
husky. This phenomenon is called "Multipath" distortion.
The number ol places where such
phenomenon takes place is comparatively
small. To avoid the phenomenon, you must
move your vehicle from this zone.

Basic drivingmethods
Make sure to operate the vehicle in 2H
position on dry, paved roads. (Part-time
4WD vehicles)

Make sure to operate the vehicle in


FULLTIME position on dry paved roads.
(Fulltime 4WD vehicles)

Special care should be exercised when


driving on slippery paved roads such as
loose sand, wet, gravel, snow or ice
roads.

Avold sharpturn
4-Wheel-Drive vehicle is a vehicle with
higher ground clearance.
4-Wheel-Drive vehicle is not designed for
cornering at the same speeds as ordinary
2-Wheel-Drivevehicles.
lf possible, avoid sharp turning maneuvers.
As with other utility vehicles of this type, if
the vehicle is not operated correctly, this
may cause loss of control or an accident.

Orive aroundcurvescautiously
Most 4-Wheel-Drive vehicles have higher
centers of gravity. Therefore, it should be
noted that the effects of centrifuga! force
differ from those for ordinary 2-Wheel-Drive
passenger cars.
Be sure to approach curves after slowing
down to normal driving speed, driving slowly and cautiously.

Orive slowly using engine brake with lower


gear. When stopping the vehicle, repeat a
light brake application to avoid locking of
the wheels.
OFE10027

On paved road drlvingin bad weather


When you drive on the road covered with
snow or collected heavy rains, shift into
4WD which provides high traction. You
should drive slowly and cautiously.
On paved road drlvingin snowand ice
When you drive on snowy or icy roads, you
should maintain traction by changing
vehicle speed gradually and avoiding sudden steer. Should you start to slide, release
the accelerator pedal and steer in the direction of the slide. Avoid abrupt brake application. When you regain control, depress
the accelerator pedal slightly to go back to
normal driving lane. Be sure to keep sufficient distance to maneuver between you
and the vehicle ahead.

Driving 4WheelDrive vehicles


offroad (Parttime 4WD)
The type of terrain and condition of the
off-road surface will require you to select
either 2H, 4H, or 4L position far part-time
4WO vehicles in arder to get the best performance from your vehicle.
Please see this manual at p. 10-6, 7,
Trans- fer Shift Lever, for help on selection.
You will also want to know about the advantages of the manual free-wheeling hub,
automatic locking hub, and how to set it far
off-road use. See manual at p. 10-8, 9.
Sand
Always try to keep all four wheels of the
vehicle on the salid surface of the trail.
Orive slowly and cautiously avoiding
abrupt steering and spinning of the
wheels.
When the rear wheels are bogged down in
sand and the vehicle will not move, shift
the transfer gear into the 4L position for
the best traction.

184

Mud
When driving in mud, keep the accelerator
pedal slightly-depressed and avoid abrupt
steering. Orive in the center of the road as
muchas possible, avoiding area where the
mud may be deeper.
Should you start to slide, release the accelerator pedal and steer in the direction of
the slide until you regain control. Avoid
abrupt brake application.
lf the rear wheels are bogged down in mud
and the vehicle will not move, shift the
transfer gear to the 4L position far the best
traction and power.
After the vehicle has been driven through
mud, thoroughly wash the undercarriage of
the vehicle to avoid any damage to the
vehicle components.
Water
Befare you enter water, shift the transfer
lever to the 4L position. Carefully check the
conditions of the water bottom. While
negotiating through water, do not to drive
the vehicle so fast as to splash water.

When your vehicle has passed through


water, be sure to check whether the vehicle
still retains good braking performance
befare you continue ordinary driving. Lightly depress the brake pedal two or three
times so as to ascertain the brake effects.

lf water enters into the brake system


(i.e. pads, linings, rotor or drum), braking
effect will be deteriorated temporarily.

Far such situations, decrease speed for


safe driving. While paying due attention
to nearby vehicles, repeat the braking
action for a little while. This will speed up
drying the brake pads, rotor, linings, or
drum and the braking effect will be restored to the normal state quickly.

Gravel
Maintain steady speed and avoid sudden
steering. Orive on the center side of the
road as much as possible, for gravel at the
side of the road may be looser and unstable. Should you start to slide, release
the accelerator pedal and steer in the
direction of the slide
until you regain
control. Avoid abrupt brake application.
Repeat light braking action, utilizing engine
braking ef- fort.

In very loase gravel, be sure to shift into 4L


position.

Grease applied items

Down shlft to asslst the brakes by
selecting a sultable lower gear.
Excesslve prolonged use of the
brakes can cause losa of braklng
efflclency or losa of brake fune11on
due to overheatlng and can cause
premature brake wear.

Gear shiftng should be made in


accoro- ance with vehicle speeds.
Do not use excessive engine speed by
operating your vehicle in lower gears for
a prolonged period.
Avoid letting the engine labor at low
speed with the transmission in the
higher gear positions. This driving practice will strain the engine and increase
fuel consumption.

Accelerate your vehicle moderately.


Avoid unnecessary sudden accelerations or abrupt brake applications.
Once your vehicle has attained the
desired speed. maintain that speed as
constantly as possible.

Avoid driving at unnecessarily high


speeds.
A reasonable
vehicle speed helps
lower fuel consumption.

Use care In downshlftlng on ley,


sllppery,or wet roads.
Fallure to do so could cause your
wheels to lockor skld, and could lead
to loss of controlor accldent.

Winterdrivingtips

lt is advisable to seect 5th gear during


high speed operation. This will help
save fuel consurnption and reducing the
engine noise level.

Adjusting your driving to help keep the


vehicte moving whenever possibte
since it requires more fuel to move the
vehicle from a stop.
Sensible driving of your vehicle, combinad with proper maintenance, not only
makes it possible to obtain the originally-designed
performance of your
vehicle, but also contributes to saving
fuel.

Brake system
Tandem master cyllnderbrake aystem
Your Daihatsu is equipped with a front disc
brake and an automatic adjusting rear
drum brake. lts brake system is a powerassisted dual hydraulic braking system.
These dual brake systems function independently from each other.
lf either of the dual systems should fail,
the other system still remains operative.
Never- theless. a greater force is
required to depress the brake pedal. As a
result. brak- ing distance increases. When
either system fails, me brake warning light
should glow. Do not rely on a single
operative brake system. Have the brake
system repaired immediately.

.-. .. ... ~ ;r ~11~

Brake booster
The brake booster utilizes engine manifold
vacuum to assist braking force.
lf the engine is stopped during driving, the
brake booster system can retain a residual
vacuum that is enough for stopping the
vehicle only once or twice with a normal
pedal applying force. After mat, no residual
pressure remains.

General precautionstor braking


The brake booster utlllzea engne
manifoldvacuum to provldepower
asslstedbrakingperformance. lf
the engine is stopped during
drlvlng, the effectlveneaa of
brakes will decrease signltlcant.y

lf maltunctionof one ot the dual


brake systema should occur, the
travel of the brake pedal will
lncreese. Stopping distance Is
slgnificantlylncreased.

Make sure that free movemen1 of


the brake, clutch and accelerator
pedals are not hlndered by the floor

Before you start to descend a steep


grade, shift the transmission to a
lower gear so that speed may be
reduced and controlled.
Be sure not to apply the brake for
extended amounts of time or
contlnuously. Contlnuous application of brakes may cause the brakes
to overheat and loas of brakes.

Tire tractlon ability may be reduced


while drlvlng in water. Moisture in
the brakes caused by water on the
road, car washing or the adhesion

lf

cautiously apply the brakes and
they will dry. Several cautlous
applications of the brakes will
remove moisture or any adheslon of

sure it is completely dry before
lowering.
When washing the vinyl quarter and
rear windows,
be aware of the
directions for "Tips for cleaning soft top
windows".

vehicle

unattended withthe softtop down,


as
exposure to sun or rain may damage
interiortrim.

Tipsfor cleanlng softtop windows


The soft top windows are so pliable that
they can be easily scratched unless special
care is taken.

To wipe off the dust, use a soft cotton


cloth moistened with warm or cold
clean water, and wipe across the
window, not up and down.

After thorough rinse, wipe with a soft


and slightly moist, clean cloth.

Zipper operation can be eased by


lubricating the zipper.

Rust prevention

Clean the interior with a vacuum cteaner.

We at Daihatsu have been producing highquality vehicles with advanced rust prevention design and construction.

CAUTION
Gasoline or strong toxic solventa
are
not
recommended.
lt
may
damage
the
materiala.

Nevertheless. this constitutes merely part


of a total rust prevention program. In arder
to maintain good rust preventiva quality for
a long period of time, it is importan! far you
to understand how to do your part.

Moisture under the floor mats or carpets will


cause corrosion of a vehicle. Make sure to
check at regular intervals that the underside of the mats ar carpets are dry.

Causes
for
rust
tormation
Normally, the following are causes for rust
formation.

Be particularly careful when transporting


chemicals, cleansers. fertilizers. salt etc ..
and these should be transportad in the
proper containers. 1f a spill or leak should
occur, immediately crean and dry the area.

Salt on the roads, dirt and water may


promete corroslon on the underside of
the vehicte.

Chips, nlcks. scratches and dents that


expose bare metal.

OFE20C3

Adversa
areaa
for
rust
formatlon
11 you are living in an area where vehicles
are exposed to rust-prone environmental
conditions, rust prevention becomes a matter of critical importance.
Causes for rust formation and factors
promotlng rust formatlon are salt sprlnkled
on the road, chemlcal substances, sal! alr,
industrial pollution materlals and so forth.
123

Effects of molsture on rust formation


Moisture can provide an environment under
which rust formation is prone to occur.
Under such a rust-promotng high humdty
environment, (specfically
when the
temperature is higher than 32 degrees
Fah- renheit),
rust-inducing materials
are retained on the surfaces of a vehicle
be- cause evaporation of water
progresses slowly.
Mud is especially harrnful from the viewpoint of rust preventon. Mud is hard to dry,
thereby making the vehicle retain moisture
for a lengthy time. There are many instances where mud stll contains water and
causes rust to occur, even f the mud appears to be dry.

lf you observe the following points given


below, this will help you to prevent rust
formation on your vehicle.

Keeplng your Dalhatsu clean


The most effective rust preventiva method
is to always keep your vehicle clean and to
protect
it
from
corrosion-inducing
materials, lt is especially, important to pay
attention to the underside of the vehicle.

High temperatura, too. prometes rust formation of sorne parts. f ventilation for
them is inadequate.
Because of these reasons. t is of great
importance to keep your vehicle clean
(being free from mud or other rust-prornotng materials}. Ths applies not only to the
exterior of the vehcle, but aso to the
under- sde of the vehicle.

12-4

clean the mud thoroughly and leave it


halfway, the wet mud will further
promote the rust formation. Henca. be
certain to wash off the mud completely.
High-pressure steam cleaning is an
effective
method
especially
for
removing mud or other rust-inducing
material s.

Rust preventlve meaaurea

lf you live in an area where rust


formation s prone to occur (e.g. region
where sal! s sprinkled on the road, near
bodies of salt water and regions
exposed to industrial pollutants), it is
advsable for you to pay particular
attention to this rust prevention. We
recommend that the underside of your
vehicle be washed with clean water at
leas! once a month during winter
seasons. Upon completion
of the
winter, the underside should be
cleaned thoroughly.
When cleaning the underside of your
vehicle,
be sure to pay particular
attention to the fenders and other parts
hidden from your view. lf you fail to

When cleaning the underparts of the


doora, rocker panels, frame members
and so forth. make sure that the water
dran holes are not restricted.

Keeplng your garage dry


Do not park vehicle in a poorly-ventilated
garage with high humidity. Such garage
constitutes a rust-inducnq environment.
lf you wash your vehicle in the garage or
put your vehicle into the garage with the ve
hiele in a wet condition or covered with
snow, it produces the same environment
as described above. Also, the heated
garage will promete rust forma!ion, if the
ventilation is poor.

Keeplng palntflnlah coata and trlma in


good condltlona

Any scratches or chips on the paint finish


must be touched up as soon as possible to
hetp protect rusting. lf the bare steel is
exposed, it is advisable to have it repaired
ata qualified body repair shop.

Do not neglectcarefor Interior,too


Moisture under the floor mats or carpets will
cause corrosion of a vehicle. Make sure to
check at regular intervals that the underside ol the mats or carpets are dry.
Be particularty careful when transporting
chemicals, cleansers, fertilizers, salt, etc., and
these should be transportad in the
. proper containers. lf a spill or leak should
occur. immediately clean and dry the area.

lncorrect tire alr pressure reduces tire
llfe, lncreases fuel consumptlon
and
causes
unstable
handling
and
cornerlng.
For the speclfled tire alr pressure, see
"Sectlon 15 Speclflcatlons".

lf a vehicle is operated for a long period of


time with its tires in the same location,
these tires will wear in their own particular
pat- terns. lt is therefore, recommended
that tires be rotated periodically in
arder to equalize wear.
After performing the tire rotation, adjust
each tire air pressure to specification.
Tire rotatlon lnterval:
every 10,000 km (6,000 miles)

Tire wear chack

Wear indicator marks

lf the safety indicator on the tire surface is


visible, replace the tire as soon as
possible.

lnstructlons on tires
lnstall the tires of the same size and
construction as originally-installed tires,
and of the same or larger load capacity.
Use only the disc wheels as specified.
Orive al a moderate speed far the first
160 km (100 miles) as a new tire do not
have maximum traction.
Replace the air valve stem whenever
replacing a tubeless tire.
Always have a tire valve dust cap on a
tire.
Have uneven wear or damage on a tire
checked by a Daihatsu dealer.

CAUTION
Be careful not to damage the tires by
scratchlng or by olllng ect.

Dalhatsu
lt is a matter of great importance and also
the duty of mankind to protect our atmosphere and environment against pollution
and leave it clean and unpolluted to
posterity. Daihatsu has long been directing
its technical efforts and resources toward
ful-filling this important requirement. As a
result, Daihatsu has succeeded in developing various emission control systems that
will minimize atmospheric pollution without
sacrificing vehicle utility.
The emission control systems installed in
your vehicle comply with ali the requirements of the relevant Australian Design
Rules as well as various other regulations.

Sources of vehicleemission
There are three kinds of gases emitted by
the vehicle that pollute the atmosphere:

Your
role
in
controllingair
pollution
To keep our air clean, you are responsible
far the proper operation, maintenance and
care of your vehicle in accordance with the
instructions contained in this manual. Do
not remove or modify the emission control
systems. Any maintenance work on the
emission control systems other than that
specified by Daihatsu should be avoided.

3. Fuel evaporative emission


This is the gasoline vapor formed by
vaporization in the fuel tank and contains
hydrocarbons (HC).

1. Crankcase emission(Blowby gas)


This is the unburned gas in the cylinder that
leaks into the crankcase and is released
into the atmosphere, and contains
hydrocarbons (HC).
2. Exhaust emission
This is the gas formed by the combustion of
the fuel inside the cylinder and discharged
into the atmosphere through the exhaust
pipe. lt contains carbon monoxide (CO),
hydrocarbons (HC), and nitrogen oxides
(NOx).

Fuel evaporative emission control


system
The fue! evaporative emission control system functions for preventing fuel vapors
from escaping into the atmosphere. Fuel
vapor from the fuel tank is introduced into
the charcoal canister when the engine is
stopped, and then into the intake manifold
when the engine is running, by means of
negative pressure, for combustion.
Blowby gas recirculatingsystem
The blow-by gas recirculating system functions for preventing blow-by gas from escaping into the atmosphere. Blow-by gas
from the crank case is returned to the combustion chamber far recombustion.
Throttlepositionersyste
m
lf the throttle valve is suddenly closed
when deceleration, insufficiency of air-fuel
mix- ture will cause misfire, which will
increase the amount of unburnt gas. The
throttle positioner system is provided for
gradually closing the throttle valve.

161

E
EA syatem
Ar-to-fuet ratio control system
This controls the air-to-fuel ratio of the
mixture in such a way that the three-way
catalyst may perform the purification of
emissions with the best possible efficiency.
Control system for deceleration period
This reduces CO and HC emissons by
cutting the fuel supply during deceleration perod. Also. this prevents overheating of the three-way catalyst.

Three
way
catalyst
The three-way catalyst functions for converting CO, HC and NOx into harmless
carbon dioxide (C02). water (H20) and
nitrogen (N2).
