Use your VIN # and go to a web site that looks up your Vin # and then gives the Vehicle type, year, engine size etc. You can then go to an auto parts website or one that is local and give them the information about your car and they can then give you the right part.

Surging/loss of power up steep hills in Daewoo Lanos 2001

This sounds like you may correct in saying a misfire. this sounds like a bad coil that looses power under a load. Is check engine light on?
If the light is on or not go to an auto parts store like auto zone.At auto zone they will scan the computer free of charge and give you a print out of any codes. the computer will store code or codes when it detects a problem. A bad coil will make it store a code or should.
see if there are any misfire codes, this code will help pin point the bad coil. if there are codes write me back and give me the code. I think this car has coil over plug ignition system. this just means instead of sparkplug wires the coil sits right on the top of the plug.
Also replace spark plugs if it has been a while since they have been replaced. check air filter too. a matter of fact if you have over 70,000 miles on car tune it up. plugs,furl filter if it has one, air filter and pvc valve and clean throtle body.
Okay, just checked it out, this car if a 1.6 engine then does have a coil but not on spark plug, rather coil with sparkplug wires going to plugs. try replacing spark plug wires and plugs first and if problem remains then replace the coil. let me know the results. good day

Engine yellow light is flashing and engine is not running smoothly

Hi It sounds like the engine management system has detected a fault. I`m assuming its a petrol engine and the most common problem is one of the coils has gone.
To find the exact fault the car needs to have a diagnostic check which will tell you which coil or other component has malfunctioned.
Good luck i`m sure it won`t be a big problem

Engine light is on, flashes when driving above 100 Km

stop by local parts store (Autozone,Advance, etc) and have them do a free fault code test. They can print out a list of faults and clear the codes

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Detach the electrical wires from the ignition coil assembly.
  3. Tag and disconnect the spark plug wires from the assembly.
