#1132 of 1371 2001 Daewoo Nubira Timing belt jumped off and messed up engine ,replaced
Aug 30, 2008 (1:28 am)
Hi my son's 2001 Daewoo Nubira 80,000 miles ran perfect for 4 years. Had the ser pintine belt changed a year or year and 1/2 ago. It just messed up, serpintine belt but messed up engine. It's been in the shop and is now out and running, engine sounds ok, not a lot of power....crank shaft has been replaced and cam. replaced valves, heads, lots.....Anyway I just got it back today and it's just not right. We have lost our owners manual and there was a yellow orange square light on the dash on in the lower left hand corner. It was running a little warm not tooo though.
Could someone tell me if that is the water light? Thanks Esty

Thank you SOOOO much for answering my question. This is my sons car that is running badly after the timing belt disaster...and we finally got it back and is running rough took it to AutoZone and their test told us to replace the cam sensor and tune it up. We had the valves redone and thank God they weren't messed up.
Is this hard to replace as I have purchased it? Esty

I own a 2000 Daewoo Lanos S. It's a 5-speed manual 3-door hatchback with 77,000 miles. I love this car. It has never put me down once. I've done all the regularly scheduled maintenance and it seems that my Daewoo is rewarding me as a result. It's not a luxury car by any means, but the car is very reliable. Now I want to upgrade to a Hyundai Sonata, but it wouldn't be prudent to do so until my Daewoo finally dies. Car insurance and vehicle taxes are dirt cheap, so this car is saving me money.
Anyway, I don't have any maintenance issues to speak of. I just wanted to chime in and offer the strongest possible recommendation for this car.

I own a Daewoo Lanos. It had a similar problem. I replaced brake pads, and this did not solve the problem. I also resurfaced rotors and this did not help either. Finally the problem got worst to the point as was required to apply a lot of pressure on the pedal to stop the car. In the end I discovered it was the brake booster which was damaged.I n the beginning it started as a small leak, so I thought the brakes were soft, since the pedal was going down almost all the way without me being able to stop the car, then the brakes got stiffer, since leak was increasing, to the point I hear the air hissing out of the booster chamber.I finallywent to my local boneyard and got a good used booster for 70 dollars and I solved the problem.
#1136 of 1371 door locks and electronic windows
Sep 22, 2008 (7:51 pm)
I sure hope someone can help me. My 2002 Daewoo Laganza is falling apart! The passenger door lock has frozen. I was told this cann't be fixed but needs a new locking mechanism. Also, on the same door, the automatic window has become "unspooled" and I need a new one of these too! I want to replace the driver side auto window also, it makes a funny noise. Problem is I can't find replacement parts and dont know what to do or where to turn. The door is unusable, cant be open or closed, its frozen. Can anyone help me? Thanks, Basia

It is because of worn out control arm bushings. You have the option of replacing the bushings or replacing the control arm.

I will be honest to tell u that the timing belt must change every 30,000miles which written on ur maintenance part of the owner manual
#1139 of 1371 Location of Map Sensor?
Sep 26, 2008 (6:03 am)
Could someone tell me the location of the map sensor? My wife's Y Reg Lanos 1.6 has developed a fault. The error code suggests there is a problem with the map sensor. I've got a replacement but my friend took a look under the bonnet and we couldn't locate it.
#1140 of 1371 parking brake light
Sep 28, 2008 (3:24 pm)
Looks like my Daewoo's having some trouble. I have a 5-speed manual Daewoo Lanos S (model year 2000). When I accelerate and get ready to shift from 1st to 2nd gear, I notice the parking brake light flashing on the dashboard. Of course the parking brake is not activated, but it's very strange. As I keep accelerating after entering 2nd gear, the parking brake light turns off. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this or how I could fix it? I notice it seems to happen more often when I'm going up a hill.

We just replaced the heater core in our Daewoo because of water settling on the floorboards, we thought this was the problem. It over heated alot and constantly had to put coolant/water in it. Well, it finally overheated on the highway and started to smoke badly from the exhaust. Coolant was also dripping from it. Finally found a heater core, put it in(not an easy job), filled it with water again....same thing happened. It started smoking and we noticed underneath it was leaking water. BUT, it never overheated! Does anyone have any idea what is going on? Oh, the defrost has never worked(we bought the car in April 08 for $800 as a first car for our son) and the car had a smell to it. We later determined it was coolant getting inside the car, probably from the heater core leaking. Even after replacing the heater core, the defrost still does not work.
Thank you if anyone out there can shed light on this!
