A P0303 code means that the the car's computer
has detected that one of the engine's cylinders is not firing properly. In this case it's cylinder #3.
Symptoms may include:

  • the engine may be harder to start
  • the engine may stumble / stumble, and/or hesitate
  • other symptoms may also be present
A code P0303 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • Faulty spark plug or wire
  • Faulty coil (pack)
  • Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
  • Faulty fuel injector
  • Burned exhaust valve
  • Faulty catalytic converter(s)
  • Running out of fuel
  • Poor compression
  • Defective computer
If there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.
If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors

Engine dies but starts again but won't continue to run . Was driving home last night and all of a sudden noticedI was losing speed and couldn't excilerate. Pull over and engine died but I could restart it....


You may need a new fuel filter. When you start the engine all the particles in the filter begin to dam up until they choke off the fuel entirely. When the engine dies the particles fall back down allowing enough fuel flow to start the engine and the whole pocess repeats itself. Thanks, Dana

2002 Daewoo Leganza CDX Stalls bad after Timing Belt Replacement


that's a major job, head removal and rebuild after a T-belt breakage, and hard to say if he has left something disconnected or mis-connected, or if it picked now for some other fault to develop. I've worked on those Daewoo c2000 2.0/2.2 16v GMH engines a bit, my friend bought a 1998 Leganza, I always figured them as a POS engine, frankly..he had more than one major problem with it, even though we avoided a T-belt failure.
