Question about 2000 Daewoo Leganza

2 Answers

Was changing camshaft position sensor and now car wont start. I am getting a spark and engine starter turns. The only thing i did suspect was try one time to start car without camshaft position sensor plugged in (duh). Now I get an occasional backfire. Did I move the cams out of sequence without the sensor connected? I checked all fuses and they are ok. Smells like gas is making it into pistons. What should i check?

It is possible your timing chain/belt has slipped. This may have been the original cause of the trouble code that led you to change the sensor. You will have to remove the timing cover to check the valve timing. If you need instructions or have more questions, please let us know.

    is there a much better way to get the camshaft position sensor out by making a big enough hole into the camshaft cover(plastic shield) to replace this and then glue and duck tap it back into place ? Can you please help me if I can do this by emailing me back at : princeofscots4@yahoo.com

    Hi, I would not recommend cutting the timing cover. If the repair fails, you could compromise the life of your timing belt and risk damage to your engine. It is not difficult to remove the cover--it just takes a little time.

Engine cranks but wont start intermittently


It sounds like 1 of 2 problems or both first the temperature control sensor witch tells the computer the ambient temperature outside and as it gets colder out tells the computer to give more fuel the other thing to check is the throttle position sensor that tells the computer what position the throttle is in those 2 things together are like a choke on a carburetor seeing it fuel injected you can't pump the throttle you will flood it so the computer has to do it hope this works

Wont start it cranks but nothing happens.wont turn over. put a new what you would call distributor. still nothing.


If the Starter isn't turning the engine over, but you hear a clicking sound, you may have a bad Starter.
If the Starter is turning the engine over, but you are getting no Spark, you may have a failed Camshaft or Crankshaft Position Sensor, or your Timing Belt may have jumped or broken(common on the neons).
If the Starter is turning the engine over, but you are getting Spark, you may have a failed fuel pump, fuel pump relay, or fuel pressure regulator.

Before you start replacing sensor, double check the Timing belt to ensure it hasn't broken or jumped, and check to see if you are getting a spark or not.

My car runs great, but when i turn it off and try to drive it again in a minutes it wont start .i have to let it set for a while before it will start again


crank position sensor, camshaft position sensor or an injector with too many ohms resistance. when you turn the key to the on position you should hear the fuel pump come on for a few seconds. if not suspect fuel pump relay or fuel pump

you will need to determine if it's a no spark issue or a no fuel issue.

When the car wont start spray some carb cleaner or starter fluid into the intake and try to start. if it does start and run for a few second then the problem is with the ignition side

check for spark by removing a spark plug lead from a spark plug and putting a good spark plug in the wire, use a jumper cable and clamp one end to the spark pug thread and the other to battery ground. Turn the engine over and you should see spark.

is the check engine light on? if so get the computer scanned, autozone will do it for free

My 2002 chevy blazer turns over but wont start I've changed the fuel filter so far but would like to find some answers before spending hundreds of dollarswithout knowing if I'm going in the right direction


Check for spark on any cylinder, by pulling the plug wire and installing a clean, spare plug in the wire--lay the plug body on the engine metal. Have someone turn the starter while watching the plug. Regular blue sparks show the ignition is ok along with the crankshaft and camshaft position sensors. If no sparks, suspect either of the position sensors. At this point, rent a scanner, read any code(s), and pursue to repair(s). If you have fuel problems, that should show on the scan. Swapping parts is not a realistic way to troubleshoot problems.
