Daewoo Espero Hello guys, Hope you can help with this problem with a 1997 Daewoo Espero. My son was driving along in his Espero and without warning the engine died and he was able to pull over safely but now cannot start the car. The engine turns over but wont start. I have checked and there is fuel in the car. Any ideas where to begin with this? Cheers

Absolutely .
Im dave

first i would make sure i not only have fuel in the tank but that it is finding its way to the fromt fuel intake. First, with no noise around turn the key to the run position but not the start position as your dash lights turn on you should hear the whirr of the fuel pump behind you for about 2-3 seconds. If this checks out than you can look along the top of your engine where the fuel lines run to each injector and you should find a service port along the line somewhere. It looks exactly like the valve on your tire . If you have a fuel gauge attachment attach away and turn the fuel pump on again. Check your readings with your engine specifications. If you dont you can do a quick test by momentarily trying to start the car and then (with gloves goggles and a rag to clean any spilt fuel) press the relief valve in the service port (same as letting air out of a tire). If the fuel shoots out then your condition is likely not fuel related. If it sputters out try once more this time priming the fuel pump by activating it two or three times (key to run not start). If still no stream of fuel just a sputtering change your fuel filter and retry. If still nothing test with a fuel pressure gauge. If you have fuel check for a spark. If you have spark in all four cylinders, post your findings

My Daewoo espero is not starting The fuel is getting to the engine The starter is turning The battery is full. The distributor is fine What can the problem be?

Spray some carb cleaner into the throttle body and see if it cranks. It may be getting fuel pressure without a control signal commanding the injectors open.

Why my Daewoo Esparo doesn't start

Do you electrical power? Are the head lights working? Are they as bright as they should be? If not check the battery. If they are does the engine crank when you try to start it? If not check the starter. If it does try spraying some starter fluid on the air filter. Try and start it again. If it then runs and shuts down after a second or two you have a fuel issue. Is the check engine light on? If it is you may a sensor related issue causing the engine to not start.

Engine problem idle speed

Hi goodafternoon,
I think the problem is your thermostat is bad, because I had similar issue that the rpm would be normal and then rpm goes up by itself for a while without any warning. I got an accident because of this in the winter. Hope this helps.

Help! Alternator warning light is on? I would like to seek some helpful advise with regards to the Alternator warning light when the ignition is initially switched on and go out when the engine is...

I can't say 100%, but as far as I know, there are a number of lights that come on when starting a car. The alternator light is one of them. Is it possible that you never noticed it before? On my car, the check engine light comes on, the engine trouble light comes on, the seat belt light comes on, the air bag light comes on, the abs brakes light comes on and there are probably others.
I think what you are seeing is normal.
Do you have any problems? Is the battery dying? Is the car stalling? If not, you are probably OK.

I have a 96 Daewoo espero and recently the steering has started to bind when turning hard to the left only. Have topped up the steering fluid level which was n't very low.

Hi Daewoo Espero has a design fault on it steering. The fire on most of these cars crack where the steering goes through the bulkhead into the engine compartment. This results in the steering become sticky and later fails. This can be seen on right hand drive models by standing at the right wheel and looking to the left of the brake booster. You will see a rib section (below the break booster) running from the middle of the steering bulkhead to the inside of the left mud guard. If you let some one turn the steering wheel and this is the fault you would see that the rib has a crack in the corner where it meets the inside mud guard member. You will actually see the rib moving away from the inside mud guardin the corner where these two meet. I hope I make sense my English is not very good. This is a very serious fault and will cause your steering to fail. Hope this helped.

97 chrysler town & country dies while driving will only start when in park, runs fine but dies without warning and will restart in park???

Well first it should only restart in park or nuetral, any check engine light on? May be fuel pump if not. Listen for pump running in fuel tank. Should run at key on for a few seconds. If check engine light on, it should be scanned for codes, possible crank sensor
