Question about 1999 Daewoo Leganza

3 Answers

1999 daewoo leganza timing belt keeps going out.

I have a 1999 leganza and the timing belt keeps getting chewed-up from the crank gear its like the cam freezes up. I put a new belt on and start the car and it runs fine for hours and as soon as I let it cool down for a few hours and try to start it again the belt fails. Does anyone know why this keeps happening? Thanks.

The timimg belt runs on a cog gear which gets very sharp edges from wear from the belt. I would replace the gear the next time you replace the belt. When you have the new gear in hand fel the smooth edges on the new one and then feel the sharpness on the old one

Tensioner for the cam belt failing or improper adjustment. If the cam was seizing it would happen warm not cold.

1988 daewoo leganza broke a cam shaft belt , would this have caused the valves to be damaged , or do they miss getting hit by trhe pistons ?


Yes you are correct when the timing belt breaks most of the time the valves will be damaged on overhead cam engines. I dont believe its possable for the pistons to hit the valves though. The valves get bent because the cam stops turning but the crank does not. The pressure is what bends them. Hope this helps:)

A SOCKET FELL INTO THE TIMING BELT HOUSING AND CHEWED UP THE GEARS WHAT PARTS DO I NEED


as long as the housing is ok covering the belt, you will more than likely need tensioner, complete timing kit (belt, crank sprocket and cam sprocket) and any guides or rollers the belt may ride on. Also make sure it didn't bend the cam, if it got roled up in the belt it could have bent the cam or done other damage.
Good luck!
