#826 of 1371 Nubira 99 Automatic Trans
Feb 05, 2007 (6:11 pm)
I have a 1999 Daewoo Nubira it has about 60,000 miles. 5 months ago it had a leak from the hose that goes to the radiator and cools the transmition oil... I had change that hose and replace the oil with penz oil mercom III and it was running good, but now My car pulls to one side (passenger) when it changes from 1st to 2nd gear about 45 m/h do You think my car needs a new transmition filter??? or this could be something else? any comment will help. Thanks. Nugie
#827 of 1371 Daewoo Heating/Cooling System Problems
Feb 06, 2007 (4:38 pm)
Problem: Heat not working at adequate level. Radiotor fan's not turning on when at operating temperature. Engine code P0128.
What I've done: Replaced the thermostat.
General Info: My car gets to and stays at normal operating temperature in the usual fashion. Once there, the air coming in through the heater is warm enough to get the interior of the car to a near reasonable temperature. When evaluating the cooling system, I notice the upper hose from the thermostat/block to the radiator still isn't heating up, not does it feel like there is fluid in it. The coolant in the reservoir get fairly warm (over 100degrees F). The fans on the radiator never engage and I noticed they didn't this summer either. There is definitely not any obstruction in the lines (when I squeeze the upper or lower hose or hose, the coolant in the reservoir moves up and down).
I don't know whether to consider this a water pump issue, a ECT sensor issue or something else.
Anybody have any thoughts?? Many thanks.

I had that same error code on my 2000 daewoo lanos and the heat never really got hot inside the car. It did turn out to be the thermostat, are you sure you installed the right one? The one I purchased was already in the plastic housing. I think mine was not fully closing so the water never remained long enough inside the motor to get real hot.

My Daewoo Leganza inside dome and map lights will not come on, also my trunk light does not work. Anyone know why?

With the car now (Leganza), the Engine Light turned itself off (I'm assuming the thermostat was the problem). However, the fluid doesn't seem to be circulating at all. The car heats up, the car gets 'warm' but the fluid level in my reservoir doesn't move no matter how long the engine runs or how hot it gets. I'm thinking the heat is just being conducted through the system and at no point is there an active circulation-- this isn't normal right? If the heat is on, the fluid should circulate right?

I recently have had the same problem and have now replaced the timing belt and replaced a bent valve. Now that all of that is done the only problem remaining is that the car wants to stall out when it is idiling. Can anyone suggest something that I might need to check????? runs great out on the road just not good sitting stil.

I recently replaced the timing belt on a 2002 Daewoo Lanos and it too runs great on the road but the idle is rough. In addition the check engine light came on and stays on. Any ideas?
I could not get the water pump off, and one of the bolts for the tensioner was behind the valve sprocket. Totally inaccessible. Changing all those components seems impossible without pulling the engine from the car.

I assume you mean it does not upshift to 4th gear when it is cold. This is a feature of this Aisin/Warner transmission. It is hooked to the temperature sensor. Until the temperature reaches above the cold mark by about have the first marker the transmission will not upshift. This is so it helps the car warm up quicker. I am not sure if this feature can be disabled.

The pulling to the side is because of worn out lower control arm bushings. You have 2 options, either replace the control arms with new ones, or replace the bushings. replacing the bushings is less expensive but more labor.
