Question about 2000 Daewoo Leganza

2 Answers

Need a Mechanic for Daewoo

I live in West Seattle and I have a 2000 Daewoo Leganza. I have a bad engine oil leak. I went to a mechanic and he showed me the engine and the bottom of my car. It was leaking really bad. He said that I needed a new valve gasket and I need the engine steamed cleaned. He said he would look up the part and give me an estimate of what it would cost. It's been a few days since I went there and he hasn't contacted me yet. I went there today and he said he would call and he never did. I know Daewoo is out of business and it's hard to find parts but is there another mechanic place anywhere in Seattle that works on Daewoo.

Gm has taken over the parts, if I'm not mistaken.

As far as I know, it's really easy to replace the head gasket, which is something I'm in dire need of myself. You just unscrew the bolts, take the top part off, replace the gasket, and screw it back together.

I have a service manual, if you'd like to e-mail me..I can forward it to you.

2000 daewoo leganza is overheating, leaking anti freeze, and water. what is wrong?


sound like thermostat sticking close.replace thermostat and radiator pressure cap.if already done.you could have faulty water pump.if engine overheating at long slow traffic line or setting at a stand still.the engine cooling fans should be running, check and see if cooling fans running if not,check cooling fans fuses and relays.if all is good,hot wire make sure coolings fans okay.if all is good,code scan vechicle for faulty engine coolant temperature sensor and ecm problems.you need a code scanner where you can check live data check see if coolant temperature sensor reading correctly if engine coolant temperature is 190 degrees the coolant sensor. the scanner suppose to show 190 degrees in temperature if not it reads 80 or 90 degrees the engine coolant temperature sensor is faulty need replacing.if all is good check engine oil if look like milk shake blow head gasket will cause over heating.to be on the safe side i would replace thermostat and radiator pressure cap first.to make sure engine coolant circulating through radiator and engine block.

I suggest u park the car n hve it properly checked before the worse happens. If the head gasket is the problem it has to be replaced fast before the problem affects the head which wil b costly to rectify. Good luck.

Ticking noise from engine


You might have a bad hydraulic valve lifter (assuming this engine has them)... you could try an aftermarket product designed to unstick valve lifters.... any auto parts store carries them.

When the gasket goes bad, the engine will leak oil like crazy, which is what mine is doing at the moment.

As far as I know, it's really easy to replace the head gasket, which is something I'm in dire need of myself. You just unscrew the bolts, take the top part off, replace the gasket, and screw it back together.
