You may need a new cam sensor. I needed one for my Nubira. There was a recall on the camshaft sensore which caused the check engine light to come on. Bring it to a local Daewoo delaer and tell them about the recall and it will be fixed for free. I'm sure the engine is there, but the problem need to be diagnosed. Here is some insight: Pull the codes from the computer, match the code to the troubleshooting procedure, follow the procedure to find the source. Repair the source, light will go out if that was the only problem. There are "monitors" or self tests the computer runs the car through a drive cycle, if a problem occurs, it may not run all of the self tests until that problem is taken care. Therefore, another problem may exist. It is emission related. OR hook up a scanner that is capable of clearing codes, and hope that none are still active. Disconnecting the battery can create other headaches and will not likely solve your dilemma. Best bet is to contact the local snap-on dealer and have him refer you to a known good shop that specializes in this technology-he will know. The " check engine light" is by far one of the most misunderstood technological advances by the public. This is an needed in-depth understanding for the public. It is a warning light that is illuminated when there is a problem affecting the EMISSION SYSTEM only. Emission system being the pollution control system. Don't get a hard on against it as it is a good thing once you understand it. One point that was brought up a a recent meeting of technicians was that the amount of hydrocarbons is greater when the gas cap is left off than when the engine is running. Hydrocarbons are part of pollution emitted as gasoline evaporates. Going a step farther, one facet of the emission system is the "Evaporative" portion. This is when the fumes from the gasoline are leaking from the system into the outside air. This is one part of the emission system that can trigger a check engine light. I would say that about 7% of the vehicles that have a check engine light are the result of a loose or inadequate gas cap. But understand that many scenarios are possible with the "check engine light" The vehicle's powertrain computer (note that some vehicles have 17 different computers) will run a series of self-tests. They will only run under certain criteria. And they can be vastly different from manufacturer to manufacturer. Some self-tests are not run until preceding ones have run successfully. So if there is a problem in one particular area that is preventing another self test from running, you can have a situation where one problem is fixed, but another still exists. If you fix a problem and drive the car through a drive cycle that sets the monitor (or self test) the light will go off as it passes that criteria that triggered it in the first place. After 1996, the auto industry went to a idea called OBD II (on board diagnostics). This was to get all the manufacturers onto a similar plane for troubleshooting and powertrain control. While they still differ vastly, many corrections and adaptations were made for technicians to better fix the check engine light problems. Prior to this there were so many different and poor troubleshooting data from a check engine light problem that resolving the problem was much more difficult. Many early warning light of this nature were set to illuminate based on mileage. An Oxygen sensor was one of the things that were meant to be replaced when that mileage was hit. This is much like many current "Change oil lights

No, the pronoun I is always capitalized; the first word of a sentence is always capitalized. If you must use the incomplete word goin, it must be followed by an apostrophe to indicate the missing letter, goin'.The correct sentence is:I am going to pass the first grade.

It can be correct to say you are always welcomes. It is correct when finished with "in my home or at my place of business."

It is 'you are always' and not 'you always' in a sentence for the purposes of correct grammar.

Your presence is always there for me is technically a correct sentence. It might sound better if written "you are always there for me." The addition of "your presence" is redundant.

number 1 is correct because it is a complete sentence

it depends what you are using it for for a missing child maybe but its not always the case

No. The correct sentence is: He always helps you. "He" almost always takes a verb that ends with "s" in the present tense. The only exception I can think of to this rule is "can", i.e. He can always help you.

NOT without an "are" between the "you" and the "always".

"You are always welcome" is fine. It is often shortened to "You're always welcome."
