Question about 2000 Daewoo Lanos
I am still testing and have not removed the cyl head yet. Testing cyls one by one with air, and valves closed, I get air through the intake and exhaust manifolds as if all valves are bent. Is it common for this to happen to every valve? I'm also trying to figure out what an "interferance engine" is, and if mine is one of them. I understand one of the advantages of the term means an engine that does not bend valves when the belt fails.
Hello jjenkins_jcf: My name is Roger and I can help with your problem.The answer to whether or not your engine is a interference engine is yes it is. This means if the camshaft stops and the crankshaft turns.The pistons will touch the head of the valves. This will be severe internal engine damage. I have one in shop right now that this happened to bent all but 5 valves. The easy way to see what happened is to take the valve cover off and you can see the damage. All valves should be up against the camshaft. You will see most of them do not come close to the camshaft. There is no cheap fix. Sorry to tell you this. Please rate the answer as this is how we know you received the right information. Thank You for using FixYa. Roger
