#370 of 1371 Gas tank problem
Sep 29, 2005 (5:57 pm)
I own a 2000 Daewoo Nubira, and have two problems:
1) First the check engine light keeps coming on, and when I get it looked at the reading is "gas cap is on too loose", so I check the gas cap and it's making the clicking noise and is already on tight. But after resetting the check engine sensor, it just comes back on.
2) When I fill my car up with gas, the nozzle at the pump won't auto fill........something is causing the nozzle to stop pumping gas and you need to stand there and keep turning it on........so it really sounds like something is messed up in the gas tank area causing both problems. Anyone else face this?
#371 of 1371 2000 Nubira Rims

Hello, Would anyone happen to know if there are any rims out there that are interchangable with the Nubira. I want to have seperate snows mounted and I'm hoping I can find some more easily found rims.
Thanks in advance

Make sure the crank shaft position sensor and the cam position sensor are plugged in. That was the problem I had. If you line up the belt correctly, the computer tweeks it with info it gets from these sensors.

The exhuast gas recirculation (egr) valve can get stuck open with carbon deposits. When this condition occurs the car will run very rough at idle and may stall when you stop. The egr valve is very easy to access. The gasket for it should only cost a few dollars. Instead of buying a new egr valve, just take it off and inspect it. Take the obvious carbon off, if any, and clean it with carburetor cleaner. Install the new gasket and bolt it back on. I've had very good success doing this.
#374 of 1371 knocking problem

could be your sway bar links or the front bolts are loose, it took me several mechanics to solve this problem but I found a daewoo dealer in ontario who knew how to fix these cars, most other mechanics dont' have any idea about daewoos.

The noise could be a lot of things. Is the noise coming from the front or the back? which wheel(s)? Does it happen when turning either way? I had a similar problem and it was a loose strut. The stabilizer bar bushings in these cars are a common problem, that's probably what it is. Over all, all the components on Daewoos are pretty flimsy. You may find that mechanics try to stay away from Daewoos because of parts availability, etc., but a car is a car. I've worked on many different kinds (American, German, Japanese, Korean), all cars basically have the same components. A good mechanic will be able to fix it for you, if he wants to.

Do GM service centers now do Daewoo repairs? Do they have a clue about Daewoos (given Lanos similarity to Aveo)? Are they honoring warranties, or did bankruptcy scrap them entirely?

you might want to check out Daewoo's U.S.website, located here, for a possible answer to your question.
#379 of 1371 Lanos Transmission fluid check?
Oct 10, 2005 (5:46 pm)
I bought a used Daewoo Lanos about a year ago. 2000 model. It had 38,000 miles on it. This is the first car I've come across with out a dip stick for the trans. Is there some alternate method to check the level of the trans fluid?
Also, after reading through the forum a bit, I very much nervous about my timing belt. The car is now fast approaching 60,000 miles and may never of had the timing belt replaced! I have no problem with doing engine repairs, does anyone know where I can get a good write up on proper replacement of the timing belt? Any feedback on these two items would be greatly appreciated.
