    I stumbled in here by accident...

    Hoe can any Daewoo still be under warranty? When was the last year they sent them to the U.S.?

    Last year of manufacture was 2002 model.Some were probably not sold until 2003.They have a 5 yr 60,000 mile power train warranty.Hence -covered.

    Gotcha. The dealer we had here pulled up stakes years ago.
  • My brother has a 1997 daewoo lanos sedan 1.4L and needs a fuel injector, fuel pump, spark plugs and wires. Noone sells parts for that year. Need help finding a parts dealer or see if the 1999 parts will fit.
  • Try E-Bay. Lots of Daewoo parts there including new and rebuilt. It's worth a look.
  • ok first of all make sure it is a 1.4l i never heard of a1.4 but there are 1.5 sohc or 1.6 dohc either way e-bay is the way fuel pump you can find for a bout 75.00 dollars wires and plug your nearers part store gm dealer or e-bay good luck . :sick:
    hey be happy soon i`ll be ok :)

    The 1.4L engine was introduced only for the 1997 lanos, and I cant find parts for it anywhere.
  • ok, i didn`t know that 97 had that engine but i will look into it and i will get back to you i have a daewoo part store phone # i`ll give them a call tomorrow and see what they said.
  • I am looking into purchasing a used 2001 Daewoo Nubira CDX and I am a bit leary. I have had problems with used cars before and I want to make sure I make the right decision. Are Daewoos good vehicles overall? :blush:

    They might not be bad cars, but they're still orphans. Parts will get harder and harder to find until you're just stuck with something nobody can fix and you can't sell. I don't see them ever becoming desirable classic collector cars, either. They were meant to be cheap transportation cars, and at best, that's all they'd ever be.

    Personally, I wouldn't touch one with a ten-foot pole.

    I can speak with complete authority here. At this moment, I have a friend's '02 Leganza in my garage patiently waiting for me to bolt on the newly remanufactured head that I found on E-Bay for her. I'll finish it up this weekend or shortly thereafter, and my wife can park in the garage again. She'll be thrilled. It's been COLD here.

    Hope this helps,

    Lynn B.

    The engine is the same as the Isuzu 2.2 4cyl .Most mechanical parts are easily obtained and relatively cheap.Body parts could become an issue though.Fortunately ,for those in need of body parts,due to people not changing timing belts on time many parts cars are available.
    The head replacement being done is probably due to this.An expensive fix.
  • my opinion is not to buy it, my daughter had a 2001 nubria cdx and she had alot of problems with that car, even a blown bulb was not a simple task with that car we had to have the car rewired before the brake light would work, we have had to have the battery replaced 3 times and she did not buy the car until 2003, brand new never been owned, had 128 miles on it when she bought it and at that time we did not know the daewoo corp had gone out of business and now we are hearing it is hard to find parts we also had problems finding people to work on it. that car was a smooth riding car and it drove really well, it also had alot of bells and whistles on it.but at your own risk is my advise, she owned the car until nov. of 2007 and traded it for a 2006 chevy cobalt SS they allowed her $800 for it because it had been declared a total loss due to a hail storm that came thu the area she lived it served it's purpose it got her back and forth in nursing school
    think carefully and do research
    hope this helps
  • ok, i don`t know where you are but, i ask the guy at the daewoo part store and he said that they didn`t make those cars for usa so i asume that your not there either he did sayed that the fuel pump and wires, spark plugs are the same but not the injector so korea is were they are or take it out and see what you can match let me know how serious you are good luck :sick:
  • ok, i ask the guy at the daewoo part store and he said that those cars were maid for those caribean islands but that engine was probably a 1.5 and he didn`t have books for it find out where every thing else comes from let me know because im curious good luck :sick: im in puerto rico this is usa region so we don`t have those problems here.

    You are right... my brother lives in europe and I live in Michigan, USA. I am trying to buy some parts here since they are cheaper with the exchange rate and easier to find. I am very serious about finding parts for it, and I appreciate your effort. I will send him the wires, plugs and pump.
    Thank you
  • OK, I'm glad that i was able to help you if you get a chance go to e-bay and on your browser or search use this number is for a walbro fuel pump lifetime warranty 160172524883 your not alone i own two lanos 98 and 99 i like them both good luck i`ll keep looking to see if i can find that injector i don`t know how much luck i`ll have i know some people that i left back in the states so i will give them a call later. :) hey is not the end of the road yet.
  • ">link title2002 Nubira has two problems. 1) - O2 sensor bad - check engine light on - report is O2 sensor not functioning properly. Can be loose, bad, bad electrical, and which one is bad is also not indicated. Suggested we start with the least expensive one - around $50. Problem is - car is listed as 2002 and 2001 - in two different places AND engine says on one place it is 2.0 and another place says it is a 2.2. Original sensor has a 4-wire plug (heated sensor). Every computer says a 2-wire plug is the replacement. Repair technician does not feel that a universal O2 sensor should be used (wires apparently have to be put together independently and plug cut off, not sure). So, am looking for a place to help find the right O2 sensor for this car. 2) - Second problem. Headlights go completely OUT. Fuse under hood (15) keeps blowing out. Wiring problem? Switch problem? Help!!
  • man i personally hate problems like that, OK first all cars have a production date and that's on the driver side door jam [ two samples 6-97 is 98 7-98 is a 99 see this are my two daewoos lanos]now yours must of been built late 2001 but on the serial it must said 2002 so you go by that , OK second have some body do a real diagnostic the car they will tell you wish sensor is the one if they can`t tell you then they don`t know how to use the scanner they should be able to see if it is a circuit problem or lazy o2 or not switching at all or bank one then you buy an original or a bosh o2 sensor wish you will find in e-bay i just bought one for 31.50 including shipping now that's a deal 4 wire heated the dealer toll me that it was 180.00 dollars they are crazy OK now the wire problem sounds like a dead short it means that a hot wire its hitting metal or something melted like a switch do what some people do disconnect things like your head lites then try putting a fuse and so on this is if you don`t have the money good luck. :sick:
