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!

#1147 of 1365 My lanos keeps messing up. Please somebody help me out!!

My lanos 2002 with 35,000 miles has been messing up. I used to have no problem with it but now it's being a total jerk. First, my starter broke, and it didn't start at all. So I took it to my friend who does a mechanic and he replaced with the new starter. But then the fuel pump broke so you could hear the starter working but the engine was never caught on. So, now I got a new fuel pump which was pretty costly and the first one didn't pump as it was supposed to, so we had to turn it back and get another one. And he replaced the fuel pump and then during the process of replacing the fuel pump, some dirt went into the fuel infectors..so I got new ones for them. And yesterday he finally replaced everything, and gave it back to me. The car..was okay...but it didn't drive as it used to. Like when you start it and step on the cluch, it doesn't accelerate as it is supposed to. It took like a few seconds to accelerate. But then when it was warmed up, it drove as it was supposed to. I was not really satisfied with what he had done with it but I needed a car, so I took it and said okay.
At the night of the day I got the car back, I turned the key and the engine didn't catch on again. I was like "holy crap, not again...". I had to turn the key like 20 times to get the engine started...Since I heard the starter working...I am thinking the fuel pump failed again...I called my mechanic and he said he would take a look at it this Saturday, but it's probably the fuel pump...
I've spent about 500 dollars already to fix these craps....do you guys have any ideas? If you need to know specific information, let me know. I'll post it on here.
I do not have money to buy a new car...but I need to go to school...but my car is being a jerk....
Please help me out...seriously!!! Thanks!!!!

I have a 1999 Daewoo Leganza SE 57,000 miles with a EVAP code of P0440
I have two problems 1st check engine light comes on and code P0440 comes up
EVAP Emission Control System Malfunction I was told that it could be the gas cap but i changed it with my Lanos 2000. gas caps are OK, I checks for leaks on hoses all the way to the rear of the car nothing. Could it be a bad can or sensor.
Problem 2 Oil light flutters afters it has been driven for about 15 minutes can i rebuild the pump or just replace the spring in the pump while it's still on the car. Any help would be great. Thanks Everett
