Question about 1999 Daewoo Lanos

1 Answer

Throttle had dead spot on Daewoo Lanos 1999 1.6SX

I have checked and greased the throttle cable and found this not to be at fault, the problem lies at the actuator, but I am unsure as to how I should go about ordering a replacement part as I do not know what to call it!
I am assuming there is an electrical component similar to a reostat at the actuator, but without expert guidance I am nervous about stripping the unit down to replace it.

    Thankyou very much for your help, it's kinda funny that I am an electrical engineer yet I failed to think of checking it with a multimeter! lol

    Thanks again.

Sounds like you are you referring to the,"Throttle Position Sensor". You can check that with an ohm meter to try and verify dead spot. remove connector, hold probes on pins, have someone slowly & steadily push gas pedal. Readings should go up & down smooth & gradual, any sudden loss or jump in reading would indicate dead spot.

    I know the feeling !! ha-ha. It's a potentiometer, so you'll know how to check it. Good luck ! Test doesn't always catch it 100% of time but I'd say a good 95% anyway.

EGR Value connection I have a Daewoo Lanos SX 1.6. I noticed that the pipe from the EGR value was lying loose. I know that it's needs to be connected to the intake manifold, but can't find the spot.

Should be a vaccum hose for the top and should just mount on the plenum, there also should be a solid pipe with a nut attached on the pipe that affix's to the egr valve

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.

1999 Daewoo Lanos SX is not idling properly even after I canges the MAP and the Throttle position sensors, what could be wrong?

go back to basics
do cylinder compression test, dry and wet
if compressions 25 psi lower than another one this can cause rough idle(valves leaking)
should be 150-180 psi any lower engine wear.
check pcv hose from rocker cover to throttle body especially port in throttle body for blockage.
are any codes being set?
