Question about 2000 Daewoo Nubira

1 Answer

Intermittent Hard Brake pedal

My 2000 Daewoo Nubira Sedan has a weird problem with the Brakes. It doesn't seem to have it when the car is cold (first thing in the morning) but more after it has been driven five or ten miles and sets anywhere from a half hour to a few hours. The first few times the brakes are applied the pedal is hard and barely is applying hydraulic pressure then all of a sudden it jumps down (almost like a piston in the Master is bimding) to where it would be normally and the car stops fine. It does this a couple / few times and then all is well again until it sets again. If I had to guess I would say master cylinder because it doesn't pull when this happens however it has anti-lock brakes and I don't know if something there could be a problem. I've been a mechanic for 35 years and have never experienced anything like it.

Well i had problems with vacuum leaks to the booster and or any vacuum supply or even the intake gaskets if engine vacuum is not stable then you rob if from where you have it like the booster is like a storage for vacuum because it needs to be there for easy application of the brakes

I have Nubira 2000, I changed the brake pads but even though no use the brake effeciency is very less.

after fitting new brake pads you must "bed them in"
by doing a few high speed brake applications of medium to hard brake applications
say 80 km/h hit the brakes down to 40km/h giving a pause in between to let brakes cool down again
if pedal feels spongy or you have to pump pedal up to get a high brake pedal you might have air in brake lines
you should allways bleed brakes after replacement incase of air ingress into system

I am disappointed. Your website is misleading because it does not provide what it promise; free advice. It will be nicer if you will just tell the people you provide advice for a fee up front. If your way of doing business is misleading, what am I to expect from your paid advice services? Please take me off your email list.

No brake lights when depressing the brake pedal

This can be caused by a number of things. You just have to eliminate each one.
Light Globe Replace one with a new one if it works replace both.
Fuse Check fuse in fuse panel under bonnet.
Brake pedal switch Unclip wire connector, check with circuit volt light indicator, Ohm meter or other continuity tester.
Wiring from pedal switch to light globe As above (maybe cut squashed or broken wiring)
Hope this helps
