Question about 1999 Daewoo Lanos

1 Answer

Engine light appearing at odd times; also car shutting off at odd times

I bought a 1999 daewoo lanos 1 1/2 years ago. Been running well, but for about 2 weeks now, the engine light comes on at odd times and seems like it has no power at all when pressing the gas. There is also a delay in the car moving off after pressing the gas. Around 2 weeks ago, the car also just shuts off when idling intermittenly. It starts up back readily tho. Dont know if the two problems are related. The car has been regularly serviced. HELP because i drive home late at night and i cant have the car misbehaving then! Thanks.

Check under the dashboard on the left side for a female connector shaped like a horizontal, flattened 'D.' If it has one (99% certain) then a scanner can be used to learn what codes are set in the car's computer and causing the Check Engine light to trigger.
You can have nearly any repair shop read out and interpret the code for you or, if you like to be independent of hungry mechanics, you can find these on sale for as little as $30 (on sale) which I paid for mine at Harbor Freight.
These are very easy to use and all come with a list of codes (mine has a CD too) that will pinpoint the problem.
If you decide to add one to your complement of tools (well, some of us do), make sure it is OBD II compatible (for your present car) or even CAN capable as this is the newer standard. Each later generation of these is backward compatible.

I have a 1997 daewoo lanos1.5l single over head cam and broke the timing belt then the engine stalled so i replaced belt and set the timing marks. every thing was correct when set the crankshaft was top...


hi, just letting you know my timing belt just went on my daewoo lanos. unfortunately it seems in a daewoo lanos that when the timing belt goes, it can do damage to one of the valves. mine is in at the mechanics and i am still hoping that it hasnt done any damage. i was also told that if you have replaced the timing belt and the car still wont start it has definitely done damage to a valve. sorry to give you the bad news!!

Can i drive my lanos with suspect valve problem.


Are you sure your timing belt is on right? If you're out one tooth, it's gonna run like ****, and if it's not firing at all on one cyllinder, you're going to wash down the cyllinder walls (with gas while you're driving) and have engine failure. 400 K ? You might make it. Won't do your engine any good.

Replaced timing belt not running right


The Lanos engine are an interference engine. If you have bent valves, remove a plug wire one at a time and see if there is no change in the idle. My guess, one of them isn't going to change anything. That would be the cylinder that has the bent valves in. I had a Lanos in my shop with a broken timing belt and the head had several bent valves. I wouldn't be surprised at all if you also have bent valves.
