    Good luck!
  • I have found a great Daewoo parts source on ebay.

    Drive the car and apply the brakes a few times and the rust will go away.

  • it's a simple fix. No need for a fuel pump. Take out the spark plugs to see if it's covered in oil. Just replace the valve cover gasket. Oil is leaking into the spark plugs. Oil is covering the electrode and ground of the spark plugs causing it no to spark. I am currently working on a car like this at school. We changed the valve cover and cleaned the oil off the spark plugs.
  • Hi there,
    I know its been some time but were you able to fix the speedo?
    I have the same problem now.
  • Please can someone help, I want to remove the electrical connector on the fuel tank. I am having difficulty removing it ie, don't want to break it. Their is a small red tag on top which I move over I suppose to unlock, but hten what? Just pull! I cannot seem to work out where I am going wrong or its just stubborn to remove.

    Need to get access to fuel pump.
  • When I fill my car with gas, it seems to fill the fuel pipe, then shut off at the gas pump, and then takes forever to fill the car with gas. Thinking there's a blockage in either the fuel pipe or air (vapor?) pipe, I'm trying to remove them, and having difficulty. Does anyone know how to remove these pipes at the fuel tank? Is there a special mechanism or clip to overcome?

    Many thanks,

    Have you tried a different gas station/pump, as well as moving the nozzle in a different direction when it's in the filler tube.
  • Yes, several local gas stations, and angles of nozzle. My car was sitting for about 1.5 years, with a full tank, so...
    A mechanic friend says it's most likely not the fuel, but the air line that's not venting properly. The closest I can find in the manual is the canister vapor line, is this right?

    Another friend said that similar to the flap at the top of the fuel pipe, by the gas cap, there may be one at the tank end to prevent people siphoning your gas, and this may have rusted shut or become stiff in some way.

    This is not making much sense. When you are pumping gas, does the filler neck fill up with gas, shut off the gas station pump nozzle, and then the gas slowly drains down into the tank? If so, then you have an obstruction of some sort in the filler neck.

    If it is just air in the filler neck and the pump nozzle shuts off, then the problem is the pump nozzle.

    If you have the first, an obstruction in the filler neck, then you need to remove the obstruction. You could try putting a plastic siphon tube down the filler neck, and see if it makes it down into the tank. If your vehicle was sitting somewhere for a year and a half unattended and unsecure, then someone could have stuffed a sock or something down the tube.
  • It is the former. Which when I mentioned this to my mechanic friend, he thinks it's not that fuel is not getting in, but that air is not getting out, allowing the fuel to flow freely - kind of like trying to pour too much liquid out of a bottle. As far as I would imagine, nothing was purposely placed into the tube, as the car sat in my garage for the 1.5 years.

    But my problem still stands, I can't get the flex connector pipe OFF from the fuel tank, and was asking if anyone knows any tricks as how to get the 2 apart.

    Thanks, we seem to at least be thinking along the same lines.

    Insert a plastic siphon line (1/4 or 3/8" dia)down the filler tube. See how far down it goes. If you exhale into the tube as it's going down (don't inhale), you can tell when the tube makes it down into the tank as it will start to bubble and you'll have slightly higher pressure to blow.

    Fill gas flow will be much greater than a 1/4-3/8" tube, so if you can't get that siphon tube down, that's your've got a blockage.
  • Hello there, I recently inherited my brothers 2000 leganza with a slight issue. Occasionally it just wont start. I turn the key and hear a click and either I have to wait from half an hour to an hour and it will start or If I get it jumped it will start. I think it may have something to do with temperature because if its sitting out for awhile it most likely starts but that isn't always the case. It seems completely random.

    Starts sometimes doesn't other times.
    Will start with a jump
    Will start after sitting for awhile
    Fairly new starter been replaced before (it happened before and after the new starter)
    Fairly new battery (problem occurred before and after new battery)

    Any thoughts or ideas? Thanks!

    I'd say corroded/loose battery terminals or a bad battery. Second guess is a bad starter solenoid (relay). Yes, parts can be bad right out of the box.

    Check all your connections, and also the battery ground strap to frame.

  • I agree with the comment below yours, I had the same problem on my wife's 2004 chevy cavalier, it was a bad battery - had my mechanic friend take a look.
  • the problem was to replace the crankshaft sensor. we did that and never a problem since.
  • I just replaced the battery yesterday, did not fix the problem. Installing a new starter wednesday.

  • Hi, I own the same car as you. A 2002 Daewoo Lanos 1.5L manual. Recently I put a new engine in it because I like my car. I now have a new problem and was hoping you could help. I have a hole in the weaved basket looking part ( flex hose) under front of engine...part of the exhaust. Do you know what this part is called? Hard to find a part when you don't know what you are looking for. LOL.
    My car is very loud right now and would really like to get it fixed ASAP.
    Thanks for your help.
  • Hi everyone. I have a 2002 daewoo lanos hatchback 1.5L manual. I recently just got a new engine put in it because my head gasket went. I now have a hole in the front end exhaust piece that looks like a weaved basket. I don't know much about cars..LOL. can anyone tell me what this part is called so I can get it replaced? I was told it's a flex hose but I can't find anything on the net that looks like it.

    Get a muffler repair kit from an auto parts store. That will stop the noise for a few years or untill find the part.

    I was Driving Home from work and Lost All Power to my 2000 Daewoo Nubira Se. I Quickly Pulled over to the Side of the Road, I tried Restarting my Car and Nothing, But i Noticed that it didnt sound Quite Right. After a Quick Internet Search from my Phone i Found out that the Timing Belt was Broken and looked under the hood to find that this infact had happend, So i had the Car towed home on a Trailer Because i was told that if the front tires are allowed to spin it could do some damage to the motor.
    when the incident happened there was no sound and the battery and oil lights came on, that was it.

    after having a mechanic place the new timing belt on and then trying to start the car w/o the airhose / filter system on i was told that there was damage to the valves or rods. my estimated repair bill would be about 2000.000

    i have a hard time believing what i am being told since it took my mechanic 2 weeks to just put the timing belt on. . .

    is there any hope for my car ????

    If all else fails, TRY THE CODES BELOW, which were the most common codes used in models during the 1998-2001 model years.
    1. 2152 5624 3346 1165 4362 5813 4513 5241 4316 1651 5346 1341 3241 1652 4524 6361 2145 5436 1857 4353 5632 3451 1638 1156 1636 5324
    Takes a few minutes but almost always works

    Does the radio actually allow you that many tries without locking you out?

  • oldaxeoldaxe Posts: 7
    Not knowing what codes were used there are 9999 possibilities. The radio was not setup for lockout and reactivation.
    You will not get locked out for trying.
