This isn't a solution but a suggestion. If you can afford to get you another vehicle get rid of the daewoo leganza. The car was always in the shop and parts are more expensive than some luxury vehicle. Also to find parts is a nightmare and sometimes you have to order from south korea. I was very happy when my engine died because now I could get a better car without all the problem and expense. From 2005 to 2011 I spent over $6000 dollars on repair/service that was regular service/maintenance(excluding oil changes,tire and brake changes and schedule maintenance).

    Unfortunately I cannot afford another car at this time I got the car for free 2 years ago I did however adapt a cheaper alternator from a gm vehicle to it also rebuilt the blower motor so it works agian i designed my own blower speed resistor rebuilt the water pump using the old housing and pump unit lucky for me i have a small machine shop i adapted the front and rear brake calipers from a chevy malibu and found that ford wheels will fit it so so far i have been lucky as to adapt other cheaper parts to the car and so far everything is holding up that i have adapted replaced or rebuilt myself the engine is actually and isuzu engine that was also used in some models of fork lifts my dads friend worked for clark lift and had an aluminum valve cover laying around that fit the engine so that fixed the problem with the valve cover leaking. so after a 33 dollar head gasket and a 35 dollar timing belt hopefully the car will last at least till tax time and i can replace the car unfortunately i would hate to sell someone the car because it has been such a pain i am thinking about keeping it to teach my teenage daughters to drive it to keep them from wrecking an actually decent car I drive the best vehicle in the world and have been for the past 15 years mid 90s toyota trucks are awesome going on 300,000 miles on original drive train and engine with very few minor repairs the clutch lasted 220,000 miles and i replaced the original front brake pads at 125,000 miles i am preparing to rebuild the engine in it and do a frame off restoration of the body frame and suspension best vehicle i have ever owned by far unfortunately not the biggest for the family to all fit in. Thank you for the advice though your thoughts are the same as mine run the daewoo off a cliff with no one in it or around it then set it on fire i will not be selling it to anyone no one deserves the hassle

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

SOURCE: replacing timing belt on daewoo nubira 2000 model

Instructions Difficulty: Moderate Things You’ll Need:

  • Set of ¼-inch drive sockets ¼-inch drive ratchet Set of ½-inch drive sockets ½-inch drive ratchet Set of 3/8-inch drive sockets 3/8-inch drive ratchet Set of metric wrenches Floor jack Jack stands
Step1 Raise and support the vehicle on jack stands. Remove the intake air temperature wiring, the breather hose and intake air hose. Take off the air cleaner assembly. Step2 Remove the right wheel. Remove the accessory belts. Remove the crankshaft bolt and the crankshaft pulley. Remove the power steering bolts and the timing belt covers. Temporarily install the crankshaft bolt and turn the engine clockwise until the mark on the crankshaft pulley, which is a triangle stamped into the crank sprocket, is aligned with the corresponding triangular mark on the block. Step3 Make sure that the timing marks are aligned on the camshaft sprockets. These are a line on each sprocket that runs through a tooth on each sprocket. These lines should line up in the middle between each sprocket and point toward each other. If they do not line up, turn the crankshaft one more time and they will line up. It takes two turns of the crank to one complete revolution of the cam. Step4 Loosen the water pump bolts; using the 3/8-inch ratchet, turn the water pump clockwise away from the belt and loosely tighten the bolts to keep it there. Remove the timing beltmag-glass_10x10.gif. Make sure the timing marks are aligned and install the new belt starting on the right side from the crank sprocket and working counterclockwise. Keep all the belt tension on the right side away from the tensioner. Step5 Loosen the bolts in the water pump and rotate the water pump counterclockwise to apply tension to the belt. Watch the tensioner, which is above the water pump, and apply tension with the water pump until the pointer on the tensioner lines up with the notch above it. Lightly tighten the water-pump bolts. Step6 Turn the engine two more times and align the timing marks perfectly. Loosen the water-pump bolts and, using the ratchet, apply tension to the belt until the tensioner pointers are aligned. Tighten the water-pump bolts. Step7 Install the timing-belt covers and the bolts in the power-steering pump and tighten. Remove the crankshaft bolt and install the crank pulley and the bolt, then torque the crankshaft pulley bolt to 70 foot pounds of torque. Install all components in reverse order of removal.

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.

Where is water pump located on a 2000 daewoo leganza cdx?

Your best bet here is to go to your local auto parts store and ask for a Haynes Manual for your vehicle. They run about 15 Bucks and will give you all the details on how to change your water pump. The water pump is kinda a pain to change on most vehicles but can be done in a good 8 hours. Thanks for using fixya! Hope this gives you some direction.
