As Long as You ABSOLUTLY POSITIVE the Timing is Dead on , And Plyg WIRES are Not Crossed Then Hate to tell you It Must Have Taped a valve. Start it up and Let it Idle Take The Plug wires OFF 1 By 1 And Listen for NO DIFFERANCE in the IDLE the ones that Make NO Differance are the Bad Cylinders for LUCKS SAKE Check the Gap on the Spark Plug of Effected Cylinders and as I said Make sure the Spark Plug Wires are not Crossed. Hope it turns Out Good For Ya I Have Been there done that on My Personal Car I Feel your Worrie. Please Show some Care and Rate Me For This Solution Although its Not Potentualy the Best Outcome, Again I Hope for YOU Its A OOps as Aposed to a OUCH for ya, Easy, RejakWilson

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!!

Daewoo Lanos 2001 SE starts, runs briefly, misfires & stops


replace your intake air box filter (remember check to see what direction it faces) an arrow (indicating air flow direction) on the air filter should face the engine intake. next check your wide open throttle switch (located in the intake tube) for smooth flap movement or, a broken wire.

My lanos snapped its timing belt and i have replaced it but it is still running a little ruff its like its putting and verry sluggish


it sounds like the timing is off
when you replace a timing belt after it has snapped you risk internal engine damage-i would start by checking the timing-the belt may be on wrong-if that is not the problem you may be looking at a new engine

Remove and replace timming belt on lanos sx 1598cc 1998 thank you


First remove head and fix the bent valves. I have worked at a Daewoo dealer. People would buy the belt and come right back to get valves and gaskets. Daewoo timing belts must be replaced every 60,000 miles.

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.

Try the spark plug wires, it sounds like you aren't getting a good spark. The distributor cap could also need cleaning or replaced. - David (you know me :-) )
