Question about 2000 Daewoo Leganza

2000 Daewoo Leganza Engine trouble

This is a supplement to an earlier problem solved by FixYa. I have a 2000 Daewoo Leganza SE 2.2L Automatic DOHC with about 140,000 Mi. on it. Originally, I had what turned out to be a Blown Head Gasket.
I have since fixed the Head Gasket, but have come across some new issues.

Before I fixed the Head Gasket, the engine would crank and turn over, but would not "follow through" and failed to continue to run. I used the Steele Seal (registered) brand product to fix the blown head gasket. After using the product, the engine will now run on its own, but I have encountered some new symptoms.

I have a Knocking/ Grinding sound on the (drivers perspective) right side of the engine near the Serpintine belt assembly. I also have a minor oil leak that goes away as the engine cools (and actually doesn't happen till the engine is off as far as I know). Also, I am getting temperature spikes as the engine runs; the Knocking sound goes away at higher RPMs, but in the same turn, the temperature begins to spike as the RPMs climb. In addition, the idle speed is a bit low and threatens to shut off, and the start up is also a bit sluggish. Normally the idle speed is around 1000 RPMs, but now is down at around 750 even 500 RPMs.

I have checked all my fluids and all the levels are within tolerable ranges.

If anyone can help out, I would really appreciate it.

Sounds like an engine rebuild is required. The head may be warped and the knocking sound may be a cam.

if oil is leaking from the the top to bottom, check the gasket below the cover that has the daewoo name and sign on on top of the engine block. it could be cracked. replace with new one without any gasket sealant just replace the original and done

SOURCE: I have a 2000 Daewoo

The temp gauge and no heat are two seperate issues, unrelated. The temp gauge fluctuations are a result of the sending unit, mine does the same thing, shows going to 3/4 mark then descending and up and down in synch with the radiator fan activation. Car never overheats and this temp gauge peculiarity seems to be more pronounced when A/C is on and outside temp is over 90F. (triggering the radiator fan frequently to compensate for heat) I read in a post that a resistor placed on the sending unit wires will solve the temp gauge problem but I have not yet tried this solution. As to the heater problem, no suggestions from me.

I cant get off the timing belt cover on a daewoo leganza dohc 2000 do i have to take the pully off. the metal peace behind the motor mount is preventing from coming off


thats correct the engine mount bracket needs to come off also if you need to remove rear timming belt cover to replace say the water pump or do some other repair, 3 torque head bolts are very tight and loctited in usually use correct torque socket and breaker bar to crack, its a bit of a tight squease also.

I just bought a 2000 model Daewoo Leganza (2.2l dohc engine) I was servicing the engine and decided to check the spark plugs, only to find I could not see them as they were immersed in engine oil. Car...


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.

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