Question about 2000 Daewoo Leganza

1 Answer

Can not keep oil filter in engine.

Everytime I start my car the engine blows out the oil filter and all the oil runs out on the ground. Have I thrown a rod or is it the oil pump? Please advise, many thanks.

    Just so it doesn't go unsaid... If your oil has been changed recently I would make sure the correct filter was used and that the rubber seal is still in place. The only thing I can imagine that would cause an oil filter to be forced off of any engine is if the threading does not match from the filter to the engine. The rubber filter has very litte to do with it but may allow a filter to slowly back off if the resistance it causes is missing.

The oil filter explodes due to very high pressure in the oil system ,most likely cause is a blockage in the lubrication system .Start be removing the oil pump pressure relief valve it may be stuck in the shut position ,it is located on the oil pump behind the crank pulley

1995 trans sport van new fuel pump, won't start

If the pump continued to run after shutting off the car you fuel pump relay was probably staying latched. I would replace the relay as well based on your info. Along with the pump the fuel filter should be replaced too and fuel pressure should be checked. Make sure your ground is good also.

It sounds to me like your valve seals are leaking. There are seals on the valve stem to keep oil from running down them into the engine. Over time and with heat they dry out and start letting oil through.The parts are cheap but the repair is a PITA because it requires special tools. Just keep an eye on the oil level and you should be fine.

Starter Fuse Keeps Blowing When I Try To Start My 2001 Camry

The starter has gone to ground. This is either a coincidence of age or the repair shop left something disconnected that has slapped around and grounded the starter or some of their other work has shifted around and done it. It could just be a coincidence. If it went to ground internally, it will need replacing. If something shifted and grounded it out, putting that something where it belongs and THEN replacing a fuse should fix it. Most shops reuse your starter on their new engine.

have you checked the pcv valve ( positive crankcase ventilation ). plugged pvc symtoms-- can contribute to sludging of engine. it will build up pressure in crankcase if plugged. the pressure can blow out seals, it can also force oil past oil rings and burn oil up in engine. shake pcv valve, if it rattles its ok. if all else fails check oil pan gasket and filter also. ive seen holes in oil filters or they are loose. and upon driving, pressure is put on oil and it blows out.

The oil warning light comes on and the truck want run then and it has great oil pressure and full of oil to,

Replace the oil pressure switch on the engine. They do go bad. also the switch is used to run current to the fuel pump upon starting everytime. When the oil pressure reaches normal pressure the computer shuts it off and the sends a signal to the fuel pump relay to take over running the fuel pump
This oil switch has three wires attached to it

Everytime the system is over-filled, it would always find a way to escape.
When you replace your engine oil, it is best to park the car on a level ground, and tried to get as much old oil as possible from the engine.
My guess is that your engine might have been abused or subject to a long/hardous use, causing the engine to knock in the first place. But, what if only one or two cylinders are causing the knock? So in this case some discreation is necessary.
Detergent based oils always foam, and when this happens on a large scale, the result could be surprising.
It might be worth it to get a used engine from a reliable wrecking yard, and adhere to engine oil specifications.
