HI....
The cause of the engine come Overheat.
The WATER PUMP. on your car Is driven with the TIMING belt.
My solution is :
Don't drive more Because if the TIMING belt when Broken.
The HEAD VALVES can be damaged. Be careful.
Get the car to a Autorepair SHOP. or if you can do yourselft.
REPLACE the water pump and the Timing belt.
And check all the pulleys after you remove the covers and timing belt.
Inspect the SEALS replace if need.

If you need assistence to do yourselft.
I can give the info.

I hope this help on your problem.

Hi. I can give you a simple, but time consuming test to do to check your intermittent compression problem. New hydraulic lifters cause a lot of problems until its settled. Remove the camshafts and the hydraulic lifters. Take each hydraulic lifter and put it in a vice(becarefull not to damage them) and squeeze out all the oil in the lifters. Then put them back and replace camshaft and allign timing marks. Check compression ratio. What happens sometimes is that the oil pressure is too high(stuck oil pressure release valve or cold thick oil) and this causes the oil pressure to put so much pressure on the hydraulic lifters, that it slightly forces the valve open. That will cause your low compression as well as backfire through the intake.

probably a dumb question but was the engine block skimmed and on certain cars you get different thickness gaskets for different performance heads, and is the timing correct?

Blown head gasket


if you are going to do it yourself you are going to need the following spares :

New headgasket and the specialized tools.

An engineering shop will need to skim the head for you and while you have the head off you can just as wel do the valve guides, valve seats, replace the valves and the valve springs.

Best is to try and get a workshop manual (not owners manual) and follow the steps in there.

Note that a head needs to be torqued, and for this you will need a torque wrench.

Repairing a blown head gasket is not rocket science however it will require more than basic mechanic skills and typing it out on a help forum like this one isn't really practical. And removing the head you can also replace the timing belt, and THIS is where the workshop manual comes in handy (valve timing is critical or you can for all intends and purposes destroy the engine).

Like i said, its not rocket science but without the right steps and settings its not something you just figure out if you arent a serious mechanic.

Blew the head gasket and had head resurfaced. Machinist shaved .018 inch off head. Before head gasket blew, car ran great. Now having difficulty starting, started one time and heard loud knocking from...


SOUNDS LIKE THE TOP OF THE PISTONS ARE HITTING THE VALVES. IF YOU HAVE HAD THE HEAD SKIMMED YOU ARE BRINGING THE HEAD .018IN  CLOSER TO THE BLOCK. REALISTICLY YOU SHOULD GET A  THICKER HEAD GASKET OR TRY PUTTING 2 ON. IT SOUNDS EXTREME BUT ENGINES ARE VERY PROCICE AND THESE MOVING PARTS ARE VERY CLOSE TO START OFF WITH.

I would suggest you contact an authorized daewoo dealer or service center and ask the service department this question. As you are probably aware some engines are free wheeling (valves will not contact pistons regardless of cam/crank relation) and some are not.
