the problem is that you have allowed it to degenerate to the point where it can be a costly fix where at the time the engine light first came on , a trip to the local auto spares shop would result in a fault code reading for free
have the fault codes read now

I've had a bit to do with that kind of vehicle, Daewoo 16v 2.0/2.2 GMH engine, a friend bought a 98 Leganza which blew it's engine a few years later, but cannot guess that particular fault without examination. I would recommend joining the Daewoo owner's website, it was very helpful to me when I was working on his. Bad news is, personally I don't think much of those engines, they have a number of issues, including a peculiar intermittent oil starvation problem which can develop in the sump, which was what killed his engine.

Have you had the alternator tested?

In park, this could be normal. ECU does this. around 2800 to 3500 RPMs. If driving, have the codes read. No codes , could be a clogged fuel filter, bad fuel pump(have the pressure checked), or clogged catalytic converter/s. With no codes, something is restricted..

Usually in the Germany's car you can find code on the radio housing body/ frame. But first you must take out radio from car panel.

If you have diagnosed the vehicle to have no fire, does it have injector pulse? Fuel pressure? Does the check engine light come on during a bulb check? Have you looked at the crank sensor? This sensor supplies info to the computer to start/control ignition spark

Hi,

Camshaft Position Sensor

A magnetic or hall effect sensor. It sends a signal to the computer relaying information about shaft speed, position and acceleration or deceleration. This information determines when the fuel/air mixture needs to be ignited and how much mixture is needed for the engine.

Let me inform you there are couple of RECALLS for 2001 Leganza.

All affected vehicles in a Daewoo Dealer's possession (which includes Dealer inventory and vehicles in for service) and subject to this campaign must be held and repaired per the service procedure provided in this campaign bulletin before the vehicles are sold/delivered or returned to a service customer.
Daewoo Dealers are to provide this service to all customer owned (fleet and retail) vehicles subject to this campaign at "No Charge" to the owners, regardless of mileage, age of vehicle, ownership, or original purchase/delivery location from this time forward.
Note: Dealers should verify whether a particular vehicle has had the recall campaign completed previously by completing a "Campaign Inquiry" in the Daewoo DataLink System (DDS).

Current affected Leganza owners will be notified in writing and will be calling to schedule an appointment to have this modification performed to their vehicle.
In summary, all Leganza models subject to this campaign that are in your vehicle inventory, or that are in your Dealership for service in the future, must receive this campaign modification before being sold or prior to returning the vehicle to the customer after service.

I'm guessing you are talking about the brake lights. That fuse is in the fuse panel under the hood of the vehicle in the engine compartment. Below is a diagram of the fuse layout and have marked the fuse with an arrow that you want to check. It should be a 20 amp fuse. Hope thsi helps....

all you do is first remove the centre spark-plug plastic cover, they are just allen-key screws, then more of the same M6 screws holds down the black plastic cover over the cams..I took it off an old Daewoo 2.0 motor i have off to expose the cams just the other day..
