Lanos Engine Life

Postby Lanos01 » Sun Jul 04, 2010 9:50 pm

My '01 Lanos has 176k mi, just replaced the EGR valve and (third) timing belt. Oil has been changed every 3-5,000 miles, new fuel filter a couple of months ago. The car is driven aprox 100 mi per day, mostly highway, and gives me 36-37 mpg.

My question is: About how many miles can I expect before the engine needs an overhaul?

Good question Id like to know the answer to, as long as engine has been serviced regularly and looked after.

The CEL came on with three codes: P0137, P0172, P0405. (See my post "P0137 Code." viewtopic.php?f=1&t=13704 ) One code said 'rich', another said 'lean' and the other sad 'EGR valve low voltage.' I cleaned the EGR valve and the stumble went away for a few days then returned. Another member of this board had posted a procedure for testing the voltages to the EGR valve and I got good readings on mine. In light of that, he later interpreted the three codes together as a bad EGR valve and recommended replacing it. So far, that appears to be what was needed.

There are Lanos out there with half a million miles on them, the engines are hard to kill from a mechanical standpoint, most die from failure of timing belt or some combination of other items.

Hell, one of mine had a bent connecting rod and it still ran just fine, just a little less power than a normal one.

I have one with a dead oil pump, been driving it around the yard for a year and a bit without seizing it up ( Yet )

These things are like the old chev small block V8, they keep running and running, they eventually burn more oil than gas but you can get amazing life out of the engine if you simply take care of it.

Oh..... key is not just mileage, people get confused about timing belts as they need to be replaced every five years ideally because the rubber starts to dry out and crack.

So even if you only drive 10K a year you should still replace it around five years.

Yes, there are people who've gone 8 or 9 but that is just pure stupid luck.

Thanks for the reply, PB. As you can see, miles will accumulate much sooner than time. Good to know that with care, I can expect many more miles from this car. I plan to continue changing oil every 3-5k and timing belt at 50-55k. Maybe this one will get 500k!!!

With 248.5k mi on my '01 Lanos, I just had a rebuilt engine installed. The original engine was leaking coolant from both ends of the head gasket. The engine was running fine - no foam in the oil or steam in the exhaust. I'm sure the compression was a bit weak, because it would bog on hills. If i only get another 100k, it was worth it.

I would say if you continue to provide the maintenance you do, expect it to go deep into the 200k mile range. It is impossible to predict what you will or will not need. The most important thing to focus on is the details, and correct them. If you stay on top of the tiny problems, they wont grow, and you will enjoy your vehicle more reliably for longer. BTW TC it is good to know that my write up on the EGR valve helped resolve your issue. One reason why me and my Father In law decided to dedicate services to the Korean market was due to the fact they are damn reliable, there is little support and information available to the community, and frankly those involved in the community for some reason or another just do not apply much effort to this side.

It is good to hear that you provide general maintenance to your Daewoo, and you will see a lot of life out of it. They are utilitarian workhorses.
