#783 of 1371 Re: Daewoo Nubira 2001 - A/C Problem [ewebster1]
Nov 01, 2006 (6:41 am)
I found that the " hot wire" from the control panel goes out sometimes. I remedied that by installing a toggle switch inside my wife's 2001 Nubira. When she wants A/C she just flips the switch. It's the same as turning on the regular switch (supplied power to compressor). Glad to be of help.
#784 of 1371 Oil in spark plugs
Nov 07, 2006 (10:17 am)
I have a 1999 Daewoo Leganza and my oil filler cap's O-ring broke and it leaked oil into my spark plugs. All 4 spark plugs are halfway covered by oil. I just replaced the O-ring on the filler cap and no more oil leaks. How can I get the oil out of the spark plugs holes. I would like to change the spark plugs and wires but I am worried about taking out the spark plug and all the oil in the holes. Any suggestions are welcome.....
#785 of 1371 Lanos climate system vent selector
Nov 07, 2006 (6:24 pm)
The climate selector knob on my 2002 Lanos 4 door seems to have broken. I can turn it, it stops at the positions and feels like it works, but no matter the other settings air only comes out the front vents, and I need my front defroster right now. All I know about the cause of the problem is that it's not ice related, we haven't had a big enough frost yet.
I'm an engineer and the only thing keeping me from digging into this is that I can't find a do it yourself guide for my Daewoo. I had to get behind the dash of a Ford Taurus once, and I would rate that as absolutely impossible without a good guide with lots of pictures.
Any help is greatly appriciated. This is the only problem I've had with the car, and not something I'll take it to the shop over.

Had the same thing happen to my lanos. It would seem to be a poor design, the clear plastic bracing that holds the end of the cable in place at the back of the selector knob breaks and allow the entire cable end to move freely. It eventually happened to all three control knobs. I was able to fix it with a thin piece of wire, twisted tight around the cable and then to clear plastic, tightening it down in its original position. Fixed all three that way and they have been working like that for over a year.

It is your transmission. I had to replace the Transmission. I bought from junkyard for $300-350 with 12,000 Miles on it. no problems since then

"To remove the CMP, remove the sensor retaining bolt (it's a torx) and LOOSEN the stud bolt."
deadwoo2 (or anyone else who recently removed the camshaft position sensor on a nubira):
Do you recall what size torx socket needed?

I tackled this today after getting a set of shop manuals off ebay. Getting the control panel off was quite easy. Just remove the radio and that will expose the two more screws to remove. It sounds like my 2002 Lanos is a bit different from yours. I only had two control cables back there, the fan speed was just an all electrical set up.
For anyone else with this problem the cables we're talking about are very similar to bicycle cables, a metal cable in a plastic housing with molded in place metal ends. My problem wasn't behind the control panel, but the cable atachment there isn't the best design. My problem ended up being at the other end of the vent selector cable, which is right above the gas and brake pedals, no parts removal needed to check this, or fix it. the cable end was an even poorer design there. I fixed it with some wire and JB Weld, plus some cloth tape to use as a dam. If you're having trouble spotting it, just reach up and turn the knob, the cable is used to turn a big white 1/3 of a circle plastic lever.
I hope this helps out anyone who should have this problem in the future.

My 1999 Leganza has the same problem, did you find the cause of the problem?

I had the same problem and replace the brake switch and it is working fine now. Check the switch again and be sure it is moving in and out all the way.
