    I have a 2000 daewoo leganza that needs a new hg. How much would a mechanic charge me to do it?

    I have the same prob', have changed more head gaskets on mini's than I care to remember, but never a daewoo.

    does anyone one have a pdf download with a 'walkthrough' or a haynes style publication they can post up here?

    I have been told the engine is the same as some vauxhall vectra's, don't know which model or year tho'.

    my leganza is on a 51 plate and it's a 2 litre cdx model.

You remove air filter and other parts.
Then you remove head cover.
Then you unscrew and remove the head,
Clean a bit the block
Replace gasket.
Screw back the head
Follow head tourqe settings and screw orders on diagrams when mounting back the head.

The whole thing is not thst easy as it may seem, if you want to DIY you will need to buy the Haynes manual for your car. There you find a step by step procedure with pictures.

Here is a repair manual.

Also enquiry to Haynes.Haynes manuals are the best.

Here is how to replace head gasket on a Honda,
with lots of pics, procedure is the same, torque values and screwing order are different. It is not a job for absolute beginners

I cant get off the timing belt cover on a daewoo leganza dohc 2000 do i have to take the pully off. the metal peace behind the motor mount is preventing from coming off


thats correct the engine mount bracket needs to come off also if you need to remove rear timming belt cover to replace say the water pump or do some other repair, 3 torque head bolts are very tight and loctited in usually use correct torque socket and breaker bar to crack, its a bit of a tight squease also.

I suggest u park the car n hve it properly checked before the worse happens. If the head gasket is the problem it has to be replaced fast before the problem affects the head which wil b costly to rectify. Good luck.

I just bought a 2000 model Daewoo Leganza (2.2l dohc engine) I was servicing the engine and decided to check the spark plugs, only to find I could not see them as they were immersed in engine oil. Car...


When the gasket goes bad, the engine will leak oil like crazy, which is what mine is doing at the moment.

As far as I know, it's really easy to replace the head gasket, which is something I'm in dire need of myself. You just unscrew the bolts, take the top part off, replace the gasket, and screw it back together.

I have a service manual, if you'd like to e-mail me..I can forward it to you.
