Question about Daewoo Nubira

1 Answer

I have a 2002 Daewoo Nubira 2.0 L engine the check engine light comes on at random this is after the engine misses a slight bit then the light goes out and car runs ok. This has happend about 5 times. Feels like the fuel is dirty or may have water in it. 1 time the engine stopped but started again no trouble. Prior to this problen I let the fuel tank run quite empty. Then I filled it up after 40 or so KM the problem started. Can you Help. Thanks Eldon Peterson

    Your answer to my problem was only part correct. The Fuel was dirty

    After I had the fuel filter changed the problem reapeared after 20 Km. I took the car back to the mechanic he did a check on the computer. Then the mechanic put a decarbon treatment through the engine. Since then I have driven the car 100 + Km and so far it is running well. Mechanic Suggested that I use only Preimum fuel from now on. This I intend to do.

The check engine light is associated with the engine missing.The engine computer has a misfire counter programed in it's software once a certain threshold is reached it will turn on the check engine light. Once the engine runs ok with no misfires the computer will turn the light back off..Probley the easiest and best way to try and fix this is number 1 replace the fuel filter it has picked up all the trash that was in the bottom of the tank ,Second for the next few tank fulls of gas add some (DRY GAS) gas line antifreeze it will absorb any water in the fuel tank and make it combustible to eliminate it from the fuel tank.After a few tanks of fuel you will be ok just don't let the fuel run down to low until you have done this because water is heaver the fuel and sinks down to the bottom of the tank where the fuel pickup is located,as long as there is plenty of fuel (with dry gas) it will have time to do it's thing Good luck

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.
