Question about 1999 Daewoo Lanos

1 Answer

Quite rapid loss of water and subsequent temperature rise. Engine runs smoothly, performs well. No apparent moisture etc in cylinders..plugs normal. Slight moisture deposit in cam tower cap. Slight moisture build up on dip stick above oil level but no apparent water build-up in oil. If water level topped up, cap left off and engine started there is an initial surge of water that half empties bottle. Previous owner has obviously had problems as many pieces of water hose left in vehicle. Any ideas?? 1998/9 lanos. John

    if you continue to run the engine do air bubbles continue to enter the radiator/over flow bottle?

99 ford taurus starts up but doesnt drive more than 10 miles per hour and temperature starts to rise


maybe a coolant thermostat that is faulty, a collapsed or perished hose..

It could also indicate cylinder head gasket/cylinder head problems.

Ten miles is about the correct distance for a car engine to reach normal operating temperature. If your temperature gauge continues to rise beyond normal ..ie. overheating .. you risk causing a lot of damage to your engine.

If you're not sure what to do or look for - get somebody to check it out for you

Engine temperature suddenly too high when driving


if the car in the process of operation, coolant temperature gauge indicatorquickly reached 100 degree, or launch in the cold car, engine coolanttemperature rises rapidly to boiling, to make up for the coolant to normal, but the engine power output decreased significantly, the mechanical system of engine system failure. The cause of the fault of cooling system are: seriousWater Leakage; cylinder pad insulation jacket and cylinder impact; the thermostat main valve off; fan belt loosening or fracture; pump shaft and impeller loose; fan clutch side. Use obd2 for automotive diagnostics , you can improve vehicle safety performance and driving more safer.

Rough idle multipule misfire


Hi. The most common cause that I have found for an " only idle misfire" is low compression. The engine needs at least 100 psi of "dry " compression to idle smoothly in most cases and if any cylinders are higher or lower by more than 20 percent of any other cylinder, you will also have an idle misfire condition felt. Should you perform a compression test, make sure to disable the igntion system completely, not just move the ignition wires out of the way as you will still have spark and the fuel injectors will still inject fuel in nearby proximity to possible ignition source. Always perform two tests, "dry" and "wet" compression. "Dry" is warm engine with spark plugs removed. "Wet" is after performing "dry" test add a few drops of light oil into cylinders and perform compression test again to see if the number rise. If they rise, you have worn piston rings or cylinder walls. If they do not rise, you likely have worn valve seats, misadjusted valves, or head gasket issues, possibly cracks in the cylinder head. If you need to know how to compression test with a tester in detail, message me back and I can help. I'm assuming you may already know due to the fact you state you replaced all the parts likely by yourself so you probably have strong technical merit.

What you describe is quite normal. While the engine is running and the coolant is circulating the thermostat maintains the engine within its operating temperature range. When the engine is switched off there is still considerable heat within the engine and the coolant will continue to absorb this heat. With no coolant circulation, the coolant inside the engine will register a temperature rise to the extent your gauge measures. This temperature rise may persist for up to 15 minutes until the natural thermo-syphon of the cooling system starts to dissipate this heat build up and the engine starts to cool down. Because the cooling system is pressurised, the coolant is prevented from boiling off at this temperature above boiling point. Once the engine is restarted the coolant flow is re-established taking this excess heat from the engine and the system temperature returns to normal.

Misfire is a common driveability problem that may or may not be easy to diagnose, depending on the cause. A misfiring cylinder in a four-cylinder engine is, pardon the pun, hard to miss. The loss of 25% of the engine's power output is the equivalent of a horse trying to run on three legs. The engine may shake so badly at idle that it causes vibrations that can be felt in the steering wheel and throughout the vehicle. The engine also may be hard to start and may even stall at idle, depending on the accessory load (air conditioning, headlights and electric rear defroster, for example).

When misfire occurs, performance suffers along with fuel economy, emissions and idle quality. And, when a misfiring vehicle is subjected to an emissions test, it will usually fail because of the unusually high levels of hydrocarbons (HC) in the exhaust.

What causes a cylinder to misfire? Basically, it's one of three things: loss of spark; the air/fuel mixture is too far out of balance to ignite; or loss of compression. Loss of spark includes anything that prevents coil voltage from jumping the electrode gap at the end of the spark plug. Causes include worn, fouled or damaged spark plugs, bad spark plug wires or even a cracked distributor cap. A weak coil or excessive rotor gas inside a distributor would affect all cylinders, not just a single cylinder.

"Lean misfire" can occur when the air/fuel mixture is too lean (not enough gasoline in the mixture) to burn. This can be caused by a dirty, clogged or inoperative fuel injector; air leaks; or low fuel pressure because of a weak pump, restricted filter or leaky pressure regulator. Low fuel pressure would affect all cylinders rather than an individual cylinder, as would most air leaks. A leaky EGR valve can also have the same effect as an air leak.

Loss of compression means the cylinder loses most of its air/fuel mixture before it can be ignited. The most likely causes here are a leaky (burned) exhaust valve or a blown head gasket. If two adjacent cylinders are misfiring, it's likely the head gasket between them has failed. Also, if an engine is overheating or losing coolant, it's likely the head gasket is the culprit.

Intermittent misfires are the worst kind to diagnose because the misfire comes and goes depending on engine load or operating conditions. They seem to occur for no apparent reason. The engine may only misfire and run rough when cold but then smooth out as it warms up. Or, it may start and idle fine but then misfire or hesitate when it comes under load. Also, it may run fine most of the time but suddenly misfire or cut out for no apparent reason. Intermittent misfires can be a real challenge to diagnose, so let's start with a steady misfire in one cylinder before moving on to intermittent misfires.

Hope this help.

It might be your ECT sensor (engine coolant temperature sensor). Usally you can mesure the resistance and the voltage of the ECT sensor. You need a chart which says the Resistance versus the Temperature versus Voltage. EXEMPLE : at 120celsius, voltage should 0,27volts and the resistance should be 1,18Kohms ...etc. (this is only an exemple)

Slow to rapid coolant rise after engine is shut off


Normal. This is called heat soak. When you stop the engine, its temperature rises since the coolant is no longer being circulated by the water pump through the radiator. The coolant then expands and goes higher in the overflow tank. As the engine cools, it retreats back into the engine. Proper level should be determined only when the engine is cool.
