Question about 1999 Daewoo Leganza
On my 1999 Daewoo Leganza there is a slight ticking noise coming under the camshaft covers. This noise is present from the time the engine starts. The noise increses in frequency as the engine speeds up.
Do you have an oil pressure guage, not a needle type, one with numbers? if so what does it say? The ticking nose is a problem somewhere in the valve train. More often or not a lifter. But lifters, usealy don't go bad unless something else makes them, like a wore out camshaft, a weak or broken valve spring, a bent push rod. If has low oil prressure tho, it could be either a cloged oil pump filter or a week pump itself. If the smoke is black its a Fuel problem be it Injected or carberator running to rich. White smoke is engine trouble in like needs rebuilt or replacing..good luck

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.

My 1998 Daewoo Leganza DTec Manual has a leaking rocker cover gasket, it starts smoking really bad after it warms up +- 6km, and sometimes I hear a double knock sound when accelerating, and the smoke gets really bad while driving, there is oil coming out by my air-intake/fuel system, the mechanics say my motor is messed but can't tell me the actual problem, I am taking it too a Deawoo mechanic tomorrow, but any ideas what it could be? The tappet/lifters are making a ticking noise. My oil and filter was changed a week ago.
