I have a 2001 Daewoo Nubira. Once it warms up it starts to miss. I have had it at the dealer 4 times. They replace the Coil Pack, Spark Plugs and wires. The catalectic converter and the O2 sensor the cheapest one $80.00. It is missing on 2 and 4 but has missed on all four at times with the computer hooked up. The compression check and fuel pressure check came out ok. The check engine light comes on. If you give it more gas it goes away for a while then back in 5 within minutes until you push hard on the gas again and it does it real bad going up hills.

have you had the recall taken care of, it could be the sensor they recalled my daughter had a 2001 nubria and the check engine light came on and she had it checked out and it would show nothing was wrong, nothing showed up on the diagnostic tests, she finally traded it in after several trips to machanics that could not fix it
know this is not any help

Mine did the same thing-it was a coil pack.I would suggest you have it checked again.

My Nubira runs a little rough, also, but not a real serious problem. Seems too noisy inside because I think it rattles other things in the dash area - depending on the rpms it is idlying at. I DID have the cam "thingie" replaced - thing that was recalled - but my exact cam "thingie" was not the actual item that was recalled, however, it was bad - said the computer - and needed replaced. It probably WAS the one that was in the recall, but the dealer probably did not want to argue about warranty stuff, cause Daewoo has not been paying for warrant work. So, if they agreed it WAS the recalled part, they would probably expect - that I would expect - that I would want "not to pay" - and that would end up them doing work and not getting reimbursed at all. Had the timing belt replaced when everything was apart - recommended for sure. PLEASE TELL ME WHAT A COIL PACK IS.

Cam Sensor - that was the part that I had to have replaced - deep inside someplace - they said.

Coil Pack is like the old distributors. It controls the spark to the spark plugs in order. If you look on top the engine to the right side you will see where the four spark plugs come out and go under the valve cover. I also had the cam sensor replaced twice and the Coil Pack twice. They still cannot find the problem of why it is missing on 2 and 4. But remember the Catalytic Converter is covered up to 80,000 miles or 8 years. I had mine replace with 61,000 miles on the car.
It is headed back to the shop Monday for a complete tune up again and replace all belts. You can also find parts at a junk yard. These cars are starting to show up like crazy as no one seems to be able to fix them so they are getting junked.
Hope this helps with your problem. And I will continue to work on mine and one day we hope to find the problem.

Thanks for the info on the coil pack. Tell me how you know about the catalytic converter and a warranty you discussed. Do you have a dealer doing the work for you "under warranty"?? I can find no-one to do the work around here. I am going to check NE Philadelphia area again on internet. Good idea on the junk yards. I work on a "junk yard road" in my area. I drive a school bus and bus yard is on same road as all of the junk yards. Cool for me. Yes, I should check them. Even for the O2 sensor, possibly. The one I got that I thought was going to work - Suzuki Rodeo engine type - was not right - bummer - plug was wrong. I have to shop more for that. You have great info. Thanks. Did you read my post about my headlight problem?

Darn! Part not right. It was fun trying, however! Plug was wrong. Different shape. Oh well. Found a place in NE Philadelphia that supplies Daewoo parts. Talked to them tonight - am calling back in the morning when their computer "is back up" so they can help me. They feel that they probably have the part. They also own a bunch of "dead Daewoos" for parts. So, am still looking for the O2 sensor, but maybe will have some luck soon. Thanks for ideas! Daewoous.com has a site that gives ideas on who to contact in your area.

I'm sorry the o2 sensor from the Rodeo would not fit-are you sure it was for the 4cyl engine?The same Daewoo site you mentioned has an 800 number for tech support you mechanic can call.It also has an option where you can find out if your car still is under warranty and who does warranty work in your area.

The computer looked up the Isuzu's. Seemed the only one that was 2.2 and 4 cylinder showed to be Rodeo - so that was the part that I got. But, you know, I am at the mercy of the person using the computer system that I do not have access to. So you just sort have to trust that they chose it right for you - or are reading it right. In my area, dealers that sold Daewoo's, for a while, would only do warranty work on cars that were sold from their location to the same owner - as they said - as a courtesy - to their customer - because they would not be reimbused for the work. So, they would not accept my car for any work or repairs. Others in area are the same. But, I might find some help in Philadelphia area. The local man I have is very willing to work with me - but needs help finding parts - he has a very small shop and cannot devote many hours on phone and online. If I finid something promising, he will call and talk to them. I will have to do the leg-work in the beginning. He is close. Other help may be hundreds of miles away. Not good. Am making a call tomorrow that looks promising. Can't wait. You didn't comment about my headlight problem. Did you read that one on earlier post?
