I have a 2001 daewoo nubira with 184000 miles. Recently it has been running fine then shut off, almost like the key was just turned off, no chug, no warning just dead. We have replaced the fuel pump, filter, coil module and cam sensor recently. The throtle body is also new with all new sensors. We are getting spark, and fuel pressure regulates aroung 40 psi. When it quits, it has to cool off sometimes for hours to restart. It will run well for several days and never die, other times I can go one mile and it will die. Any suggestions?

I have a Daewoo Nubira which has been parked up for the last 2 years outdoors and never moved. Put new battery in and started first time. I am concerned about the brake discs, they have a coating of rust on them.
1. Can I refurbish them?
2. Do I have to replace them?
Car brakes OK but could be better. Just need to know before I go to any expense as the car needs other minor work. Model year is 2000.

It depends on whether the rust is merely surface, or if it has created pits and little craters in the disc or not. You might take some steel wool and buy a can of "Brake-Kleen" at the local auto parts store and see how the discs look once they are all cleaned up. I think they'll be fine unless they were really eaten up by road salt. I'd be more concerned about sticking calipers, but if the brakes aren't dragging or overheating, maybe you're okay with some buffing.
One thing I would DEFINITELY do is flush out the brake fluid and add clean fluid.

I am from PEI and also own a Daewoo Lanos 2002, 1.5. I am wondering if you could tell me where I could buy parts for this type of car? I am in need of a timing belt and cant seem to find one anywhere. You mentioned that Mitsubishi were great for customer service, were they able to provide you with any parts?

Drive the car and apply the brakes a few times and the rust will go away.

it's a simple fix. No need for a fuel pump. Take out the spark plugs to see if it's covered in oil. Just replace the valve cover gasket. Oil is leaking into the spark plugs. Oil is covering the electrode and ground of the spark plugs causing it no to spark. I am currently working on a car like this at school. We changed the valve cover and cleaned the oil off the spark plugs.
