One of the control devices is malfunctioning on the engine, and it needs to go to a shop for repairs. Simple things first though. If the light just came on, check to make your gas cap is on correctly, leaving it loose will cause the check engine light to come on. The light will reset itself after awhile of normal driving. If it does not have your local autopart store or shop read the code. That is the simplist way. Does the engine sputter while driving? That is an electrical problem with the spark plugs not firing when they should or not at all. Change the wres and plugs, check timing. That is what happened to mine

How to check for bent valves on 2001 Daewoo Lanos?

compression check The Daewoo Lanos has an interference engine, if the timing belt failed, there is a strong possibility the pistons hit valves before the engine stopped completely. First perform a compression test, if the valves are bent they will not seal properly and the compression readings will be low. Keep in mind if the timing belt is broken or not installed correctly, this could cause cylinders to have low compression also. Inspect with a fiber optic borescope through the spark plug holes, look for impressions in the piston tops. The fiber optic borescope can help by giving an indication of the damage that may have occured without disassembly.

Where is the transmission dipstick on a 1999 lanos daewoo?

the daewoo lanos has no dipstick. The owners manual suggests that you take the car to a dealer to have them check it. Im sure they want you to pay them for frivolous things. Hence daewoo is no longer sold in usa. I wonder why Answer #2 A grey plastic plug with a large screwdriver slot in it located on the top of the transmission box when unscrewed and removed reveals a small dipstick attached to the underside of the plastic plug. This is also where you add any new transmission oil should you drain it or need to top it up.
