I have a 2001 Daewoo Lanos and I do not have any 12v power going to my crank sensor any help would be greatly appreciated.
I had a similar issue with my 2001 Lanos. I took it to a local car dealership and they replaced a cap that is under the reserve, for $45.00 and that fixed the problem. Remeber that Daewoo parts are interchangeable with other cars like the "Swift" or other small cars - so the cost should not be so high to repair minor details like this one.
2001, Daewoo Lanos was running great....stopped at a light and heard a pop sound, as I continued to drive the engine sounded like a tank and then it stalled. Had a hard time starting it but was able to get it off the road, but now the car is shaking, makes loud noises and has no power to be driven anywhere....any idea what car problem I am having?
I'm looking for a location for this switch....can anyone help? I have a 2001 Daewoo Lanos that just had the starter replaced and it worked fine for a day or two now won't start again.
Due to the economic crisis the place that carried and repaired Daewoos went out of business several months ago, does anyone know where to get a 2001 Daewoo Lanos Sport repaired in South Florida?
Hi joepeterson56..I have a 2001 daewoo lanos that is doing the exact same thing as your Leganza with the overdrive shifting problem..Did you ever get it solved..Someone told me to try and replace the thermostat which i did but it did not make any difference..Did you get a solution for your problem please..Your reply will be greatly appreciated..Thanks.. my email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
my 2001 daewoo lanos automatic when warm is shifting fine..Except when engine gets really warmed up after about 15 minutes of highway driving,it pops out of the overdrive gear and won't go back into overdrive until I turn engine off and cool down..Replaced the thermostat and still doing the same??..Could it possibly be the transmission fluid??..I have over 100,000 miles on the transmission and have never changed the fluid...
You need a new cable for the defroster check out daewoo of North America on line type in daewoo parts you have to sign up first it's free the cost of the cable is about $10.00 plus shipping . I had to replace mine.
Just to update I changed the Injectors, FPR, and another CMP sensor for the hell of it. Still no start. Wow I changed just about every single part on this car and it still will not start. I've never experienced this in my entire life no wonder they no longer make these cars. OK All parts changed and checked as of today: Spark Fuel Comp Intake Cranks Freely without abnormal noises. ...

I took some advice from a friend to use carb cleaner to see if the motor will start and surprisingly it did. But obviously it died out after I stopped spraying. So what does this tell me? That the timing is in fact ok? or could it be clogged Inj or bad FPR? IMO It seems that there isn't enough fuel getting to the motor. What yall think. The motor sounds ... Read More
We just replaced the heater core in our Daewoo because of water settling on the floorboards, we thought this was the problem. It over heated alot and constantly had to put coolant/water in it. Well, it finally overheated on the highway and started to smoke badly from the exhaust. Coolant was also dripping from it. Finally found a heater core, put it in(not an easy job), filled it with water again....same ... Read More
So in other words the EVAP isn't the problem. The most likely reason it was tripped was due to me dry testing the Fuel Pump. Since The EVAP works at a desired pressure the code will not clear until three consecutive ignition cycles engine running. I know there was a recall on the CMP sensor( Cam Position Sensor) for my year and model but it was replaced and the engine was ... Read More
probably a bad fuel tank pressure sensor, bad wiring to the connector, bad wiring in the PCM circuit or a bad PCM module: Here's some ideas: System Description The evaporative emission (EVAP) system includes the following components: * Fuel tank. * EVAP vent solenoid. * Fuel tank pressure sensor. * Fuel pipes and hoses. * Fuel vapor lines. * Fuel cap. * EVAP canister. * Purge lines. * EVAP canister purge ...

Ok basically my lanos 1.6L will not fire up. The fuel pump works, New Fuel Filter, New spark plugs and their all firing, I took each plug out one by one to make sure each one was giving out spark. They all checked ok. I plugged in the Scan Tool and the only code I get is a P0452 EVAP low. How do I fix that? And will this keep the ... Read More
I own a Daewoo Lanos. It had a similar problem. I replaced brake pads, and this did not solve the problem. I also resurfaced rotors and this did not help either. Finally the problem got worst to the point as was required to apply a lot of pressure on the pedal to stop the car. In the end I discovered it was the brake booster which was damaged.I n the beginning ... Read More
You know what that is what I have been through and it is costing me a fortune. Now my mechanic says the reason it wont start still is a clutch safety swicth. I don't know if this guy is just screwing me over or if this is true.Can anyone tell me if this is true or not.
man i personally hate problems like that, OK first all cars have a production date and that's on the driver side door jam [ two samples 6-97 is 98 7-98 is a 99 see this are my two daewoos lanos]now yours must of been built late 2001 but on the serial it must said 2002 so you go by that , OK second have some body do a real diagnostic the ...

I went to start my 2000 Daewoo Lanos one day and it sounded the same way, like the starter was turning but not engaging anything. Man was I wrong. The Teeth had stripped off the timing belt aroung the crank shaft and what I heard was the starter turning the crankshaft after all four pistons had contacted the valves and bent them, there is no compression once that happens so the ...

just got a email back from daewoo corp and they told me to take a flying leap in not so many words but it came out the same that my car had gone over the miles so it was not longer under warranty i knew that i just felt like they should make their cars better they would not get all these complaints i am going to somehow get it fixed ... Read More
just read your messages and believe me i thought the same thing when he told what it would cost and have contacted another person to check it out to see i do not exactly trust the ones that said it would cost a little over $1600 just to fix the compressor, turning the ac button off does not work we tried that as well i have also contacted the daewoo company ...

God what a huge amount of money. Is he wanting to change every dam thing out in the a/c system or what??? Maybe he just doesn't want to mess with it and is trying to make it "worth his while". Let's hope he's better than that! It may actually be Daewoo's fault but someone could surely diagnose this problem. Lots of daewoo enthusiasts (mechanical and non mechanical) out there. ;) I ...

not under warranty as it only has a 3 year 36,000 mile factory warrenty and daewoo did not offer an extended powertrain warranty. but it sounds like just a stopped up pcv problem p.s pcv is the crankcase ventilation try replacing the pcv valve.
You could check for a defective crancase ventilation valve (PCV valve), also for oil overfill, and last of all (gulp) a cylinder leakdown test to check for engine wear.
I have a 2001 Lanos that up until yesterday was running excellent. It has only 50,000 miles. The pressure in the crankcase is forcing oil out from under the oil cap. I'm wondering if it's a compression ring breakdown or something less benign. I bought this for my son for college just two months ago. Is this still under warrenty?
I've had my lanos for 4 yrs almost. All I've had to replace was the normal brakes, spark plugs/wires, oil ect. It has 78,000 miles on it. Last time I brought my car in for spark plug/wire and oil change I told them to check my belts and replace them if needed. They didn't replace them (not sure if they even checked them), but told me no they were good. In ... Read More
i have a 99 Daewoo Nubira i bought it brand new with 13 miles and now i have 145,000 miles my car use to do that. i don't know if your car has an idle adjust screw on your gas pedal if you do adjust it to were your tach. reads 900 to 1000 rpms then rev up your engine and see if that works it worked for mine :)
Interestingly enough the Daewoo Kalos sold elsewhere in the world has a newer engine than the Chevy Aveo, Suzuki swift versions. Yes, unfortunately these still use the old Daewoo Lanos 1.6L GM Holden built engine. I would have expected GM to go with Daewoos new engine, but it seems that they are so concerned about making money on these cars for a change that they decided to go with the GM ... Read More
I own a 2001 Lanos Sport and love it. I have had no problems with my sport. There is a recall on the "Passenger" side airbag. I think it has to do with the airbag mounts, and not the actual operation (or lack there of) of the airbag. I have not had any problems getting service up to this point. You will want to find out the address of the original ... Read More
Hello fellow Daewoo owners, I am a potential 2001 Lanos Sport owner. The owner must sell this car immediatly (by 9/4/02)before it gets repossessed by the Bank. It appears to be in excellent condition; everything looks brand new and it only has 28k miles. However when I turned on the ignition the Air Bag light swithced on??? Does it mean that the car was in an accident and the air bags ... Read More
"How could anyone have ever said this is a good car? " I have a 2001 Lanos Sport. I looked at ALL the other options. All the American, German, Korean, and Japan offerings. None, and I mean NONE had as good an offering for the money. I still have not read or heard of ANY major problems with a Daewoo car. In fact most owners of Daewoos rave about them. I ... Read More
I need a new car for my son. I am being offered a New leftover 2001 Daewoo Lanos hatchback with Automatic and Air for around $8,000. The price is tempting but Edmunds Auto calls it a "LAMOS" and most reviews are not to favorable. Does anyone here really own a Lanos and would you recommend buying one? I need a quick answer cause I will make up my mind in the ... Read More
Hey man, the wife and I (newlyweds) own a 2000 celica, we decided we needed a 2nd car, now we live in WV granted the snow isn't as common here, but we did get alot of snow, we purchased a 2000 lanos S in feb of 2001, we got a great deal, just under 7,500 on it, because it was already a year old, and i have to say i was ...

Just a note for those interested in purchasing a Lanos. A few weeks back I purchased a New 2001 Lanos Sport (Just like the one on the post above). I paid $12,032.00 including the Destination charge and the "Optional" custom floor mats. ($13,500.00 sticker with these items). Several dealers said there was no discounts off the $13,500.00 stickers price. They said it is a low priced car with no margin for ... Read More
