Car running lumpy, reduced power

I have a 2000 daewoo lanos check engine light either stays on or flashes intermittently, i have been told by the gargae it is a fautly o2 sensor, had all coil packs replaced and new spark plugs. sometimes it runs ok and then all of a sudden it runs lumpy (sounds like a tank) and looses power, but isnt stalling when idleing. i have just disconnected the o2 sensor by the fans, is it the o2 sensor that needs to be replaced. the garage cant seem to help and iam at my wits end to know what else to try!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    are there two o2 sensors? i found the one at the front near the cooling fans and disconected it but it made little difference.

    I have a similar problem? I think? When stationery the engine noise is tremendous, and the RPM show at about 3,300 but drops dramatically when the gears are engaged. When I took it for it's MOT the garage managed to reduce the RPM (for a short while). However, it didn't last long and now I'm getting the engine symbol flashing (more on than off). HELP!

    I do not know what the solution can be - does anyone know where I can take it to be repaired (hopefully near Sutton, Surrey)!

Is the garage you took it to a daewoo dealership? If not then try one; they should be able to run a diagnostic. If so, take to a different one.

I would think it is the o2 sensor. If you disconnected it then it sounds like you have the knowledge to replace one. When mine went bad the car didn't stall.

Is this the check engine light that is flashing? If so you most likely need plug wires.

Ecm fuse keeps blowing and the engine check light keeps coming on

Running rough

If your car is running rough and it's fuel injected (which yours is). Follow the air intake (black plastic box - housing the air filter that has tubing that goes to the motor) until it reaches the Throttle body (rounded metal air intake at the end of the plastic tube - has one large flap inside). You will want to remove the hose clamp and thoroughly clean the throttle body and the AIC (air idle control valve - small canister attached to the throttle body). Use off-the-shelf cleaner from any automotive store. This takes about 30mins to 1hr depending on your skill level. This will result in a cleaner smother idle and smoother performance. This is a common issue in today's cars. I have to do this once a yr to keep my modified car running happy.

Take a look at the later parts of this article for pictures to give you an idea:

Blinker works intermittently

more than likely u have a bad flasher. to use it in the meantime, do this: push the lever just enuff to see the arrow flashing (before it starts buzzing), then hesitate briefly and slowly move the lever into the full position. or if u prefer u can hold the lever at the flash until your turn is made.

2001 daewoo lanos check engine light

oil is non conductive so I doubt that's the problem, but the oil leak should be fixed to reduce problems down the road.
as for the misfire could be a couple things, fouled plug(s), a plug wire(s) that has cracks, or even valves that are not seating which i doubt from your explanation.
I would change your plugs and wires first, and fix oil leak. if this does not fix the issue there are other things going on.

Hi the idle speed is to high on my daewoo lanos 1600, there is a soultion but i dont know where the power lead that goes to the speed valve in the solution it says top of engine, but i dont know what it...

there is a screw at the end of the throttle cable. get someone to rev the engine an your see it move.turn the screw anticlockwise and the idle should slow. clockwise will raise the idle speed.
