I'm looking for the fuel cut off switch for my daewoo tacuma.a couple of months ago oil started coming out the front of my engine so for a while I still drove it but always kept it topped up with oil.but after a week or so I stopped driving it and left it for a couple of weeks.when I went back to start it it wouldn't start.during my time driving it I used all the fuel and have been told it could be the fuel cut off switch.I checked the oil and there's plenty in it can you help me please.

    there is no fuel switch sign in the luggage area, can you check to see if there is a fuel cut off switch in my daewoo tacuma 53 plate.

    the timing belts still on but don't know how to check the fuel pressure gauge.its got to be something to do with the fuel could it be a blocked fuel filter?when a turn the key its as though the fuel isn't getting through.I changed the spark plugs and leads a couple of months ago so a don't think it'll be to do with that.

If this vehicle is equipped with a fuel cut-off switch(inertia switch) it would be located in the trunk luggage area on the side with a label saying fuel switch.Some of these were equipped with them and some weren't.Any other questions please get back to me.....I'm here to help!! Thanks for using Fixya.:) rate me accordingly

    I just checked with my reference manual and that's where it should be if the vehicle is equipped with the inertia switch.It is possible that this one is not equipped with one.Have you checked the fuel pressure at the fuel rail with a mechanical fuel gauge? Have you popped off the timing belt cover to see if the belt is still intact? These cars are notorious for timing belt failure after 60000 miles.get back to me

    to check the fuel pressure you need a mechanical fuel gauge that can be purchased at any autoparts store and then you install it on the fuel rail on top of the engine and turn the key on, then you turn the key off and monitor your fuel pressure.If it drops any or isn't the desired spec((35-45 lbs) then you can condemn the fuel pump.Just because you can hear it run does not mean it's building adequate pressure.

Cant find the auto transmission fluid level dipstick 2001 daewoo tacuma

I don't think there is one. there is a big bolt on side of the housing. you need to get the vehical level and off the ground. top up until oil starts to come out, you will need somthing to catch the oil that comes out. then put the bolt back in.

Daewoo Tacuma electric window on front passenger will not go up from driver's door control. Works OK from passenger door.

then the Switch is Probably the Problem. But You Need to check the Wires AT the Door since they are bending all the time and they will Break Useally in the Harness between the Door and the Car body

Cant find fuelcut off switch

Pull the fuel pump fuse or the relay. Once either is pulled, start the car (it will stall in seconds) The fuel is cut off and the pressure in the lines is relieved. Reinstall the fuse or relay when you are finished and ready to run the car.

Daewoo tacuma engine management light

There is sooo many problems with the 1.8ltr engine (2001) ..for example the oil ports in the cylinder head casting are way too small.. this causes clogging and obvious lack of flow and then lack of power due to compression ratio going out the window.. I've re-built quite a wee number of these puppies.. including my wife's own I heartily recommend the below..

This should give immediate effect, but you may also consider the CRANK/FLYWHEEL SENSOR.. It's NOTORIOUS.. Along with the IGNITION COIL PACK.. CONSTANTLY CRACKING HIGH TENSION LEADS..Etc...
Hope this helps someone out there..
