    Next time it won't start, someone needs to put a fuel pressure gauge on a T fitting into the fuel rail.

    Or a cheaper faster way might be to squirt some starting fluid into the air intake---if the engine kicks over, you have a fuel delivery problem. If it doesn't start, it's probably an ignition or sensor/module issue.

    - the plugs are the wrong plugs, or you didn't gap them correctly
    - the wires are the wrong wires, or you didn't get then attached correctly in the cap or on the plug, or you switched a wire in the rotor cap by mistake (now has incorrect firing order).

    at 40mph my car would move a little to the left. My mechanic discovered the lower control arm(triangular shape) had a bad bushing where the bolt goes thru and was loose when the tire was cked for being solidly connected, when it was up on a lift. The other side, when the tired cked for security was solid with no movement. I bought the part from napa for $98 I think and he replaced it for about $97 labor.

    2001, Daewoo Lanos was running great....stopped at a light and heard a pop sound, as I continued to drive the engine sounded like a tank and then it stalled. Had a hard time starting it but was able to get it off the road, but now the car is shaking, makes loud noises and has no power to be driven anywhere....any idea what car problem I am having?

    Might have had some major internal engine damage (like a broken piston rod). I'd get a professional garage to look at it, or do a compression test on it to get a handle as to what the problem might be.

    But before you do that, investigate what the vehicle is worth, and be prepared to junk the vehicle...if the repair estimate is anything but nominal.

    A running Daewoo on trade in (I'm guessing) might fetch 500 to 1500 bucks. One with a blown engine would be worthless. If you have to invest 1000 to 2000 bucks to have someone replace or fix your engine, you still have a vehicle worth only 500 to 1500 bucks.

    The Daewoo engine is an 'Interference' type engine. if the timing belt breaks it will allow the pistons to contact the valves. It happened to me with my 2000 Lanos. bent all 16 valves, luckily the pistons were ok. Did the work myself, got all of the parts on ebay for about $300.00. that was 4 years ago and it is still running good.
    If you have a Daewoo, Make sure you get the timing belt replaced before it breaks, mine broke at about 80k. 60K is probably around when it should be replaced.

    If the timing belt were broke, the engine wouldn't run at all. It's running with lack of power. I guess it's conceivable/possible the timing belt could have jumped some teeth
