Hi I hv a daewoo lanos 1.8 8valve the car don't missfire but don't want to pull


First thing to check would be transmission fluid. If it revs up in park fine and idles and moves fine but just doesn't seem to want to go good with out really revving it then you might have a blocked up Catalytic Converter.

Rough idle, sputtering like its outta gas but it aint.


Could be a vacuum leak as it falls off under acceleration and does not play a part then. Check for broken or cracked hoses.....
