Question about 1999 Daewoo Nubira
Well i bought the daewoo nubira (manual transmission) three weeks ago and it was running really well...the rpm was sitting under 1000rpm, but then it did start to misfire (if that is jolting whilst driving) and the rpm started to gradually get higher and higher, in just the last week ....ummm im not sure when the last major service was done. There arn't really any other indicators either, i mean it chews through a bit more petrol compared to my old toyota camry. My car also doesn't have auto cruise and the battery light doesn't light up.
Thanks heaps for you help
Appreciate the "Ask Me". With your indulgence, I would repost this on your problem here.
Offhand, I am tempted to think that there is nothing wrong with the car except that the on board computer is learning "new driver's habit". Might you want to try and reset the computer, simply remove the negative terminal of the battery for a couple of minutes. A warning though, some car stereos have built-in security protection and would ask for a code when the battery is removed. Pls have this code ready as well as the means of inputting them back in.
If this does not prove to be corrective, then the correct procedure for diagnosis would be to have your car's computer scanned and the error codes interpreted. The error codes would reveal the "probable" cause of your problem(s). Often, the codes would point to a sensor that is either acting up or is falsely triggered. Thereafter check/corrective action/replacement of the pinpointed fault should resolve your issue. This would be more to your advantage rather than trying out several possibilities.
If for some reason you want an immediate try, foremost to check would be the stepper motor (throttle control ). You could also try spraying the throttle assy/housing with a carb/injector cleaner.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
