Question about 2000 Daewoo Lanos
It is very possible that there could have been a relation between the timing belt being serviced and what happened recently.When the engine is opened up to replace the timing belt and certain gasket contact areas are grinded down to achieve a smooth flat surface it's very possible that that oil galley holes weren't covered to protect from material getting in there.This could have caused the failure.Also, it's very possible that the timing belt tensioner had failed after the fact and the belt acheived enough slack to jump off the sprockets which in turn could cause the cam to slap against the pistons and damage the cam itself.This would actually more than likely damage the pistons too.I hope I could help.....rate me accordingly..

The blocked oil galleries is the best scenario here, lack of oil would be the only thing that could cause this, there is no way changing a timing belt could result in a frozen camshaft, with 45 years of auto repair under my belt i reject that theory, lack of lubrication is the reason without a doubt.

How many miles are on the vehicle? Most likely it is due to the fact it is a a Daewoo. There could be a lot of reasons for this. I would just invest in a much safer and reliable vehicle rather then repairing that one. Once I have more information I can assist you further if needed.
