Question about 2000 Daewoo Leganza
I have been driving my car (2000 Daewoo Leganza SE, DOHC, Autimatic, 2.2 L., D-Tec) normally, but last week it started to make a loud noise under the hood (the best way to describe it is like having a hemi under the hood, but in a bad way).
I didn't drive it for a week and upon trying to start it to better diagnose the problem, it started, but wouldn't contine to run. After "gunning" the engine, the car blew white smoke from the exhaust as well as dripping a black liquid from the tail pipe and blowing blackened chips of a rubber- like material on to the ground behind it.
I recently added more oil to the engine after the oil indicator light started turning on when I made left hand turns. I have also had a slow coolent leak from the seal on the hose leading into the radiator.
We have had several days of below freezing temperatures as well.
The car is used with 140000+ miles on it, but when I bought it, it had been serivced and inspected and anything wrong was fixed.
Can anyone help?
Cant be positive without seeing it but with everything you described it sounds one of your rubber exhaust valve guides may have broken. You will have to remove the valve cover and push rods to find out. I don't like to make guesses at things but I would put a good bet on it.
