#306 of 1371 Help!!! Steering problem and possible engine too?
Jul 24, 2005 (8:50 am)
Yesterday I started my 2001 Daewoo Nubira sedan and when I pressed the accelerator I heard a "clunk" and all of a sudden my brake warning light came on and my steering wheel jammed so my tires are at a / / angle and I cannot straighten them out! The engine DOES start so I checked under the hood and it looked like one of the belts (timing belt maybe?) was running funny. I am really worried about this and if I at least knew what it possibly could be before I have it towed to the mechanic I would be greatly relieved!

How were you able to see the timing belt running funny? Did you remove the timing belt cover and everything in front of the cover so you could gain access to see it?
Without a qualified mechanic actually looking at the problem, no way to know what happened.

I'm not sure what it was I was just guessing. I am going to have a mechanic look at it anyway (unfortunately I cannot find anyone on Sunday nearby) but I was just wondering if anyone else had this problem. My main problem is the steering wheel not being able to move.

I just recovered from the same problem. My car randomly stopped one day. I changed the oil, replaced the spark plugs and all this caused a lot of confustion as to what the problem was. As it turns out the air conditioning tube had plugged and was overflowing into my car under the carpet. It had been going on so long that it created a lot of corrostion on the plug between the computer and the wireing. A single orange wire had come lost and it kept the feul pump from turning on. So I had to pull off the passanger seat and remove the carpet. Right afterward the car ran. The way that you can tell if this is your probem is if the feul pump turns on when you put the key in the on position (not turned over), but just like you'd want to play the radio. After I fixed this problem I took a 950 mile road trip, and it never even gave me a hiccup. I hope that helps.

We found out what it was. The crankshaft pulley broke and now we have to replace it but the mechanic had difficulty finding the part and the dealer (it is a poo dealer anyway because they will not deliver, we would have to pick up the parts ourselves) we would have to get it from told him we have to wait two to three weeks and it would cost $256.00. Does that sound right? Sorry if I sound like a dummy.

#313 of 1371 Major problems...
Aug 02, 2005 (6:17 am)
I have a 01 Leganza that I can't get going...My wife drove it (she says it sounded like an airplane and couldn't place her order at the drive through, then it died on the way home ). I replaced the cylinder head, timing belt, pullys, water pump, serpentine belt and it's tensioner. The car still won't start. The timing belt didn't break, but I just replaced everthing. The lower end had no signs of trouble. Any suggestions? The fuel system has plenty of pressure I tested it. I'm gonna check for spark next. Is coil failure a common problem? Any way to test it? What about the cam position sensor? Please, anyone... I need some direction.
