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.

RECALL SERVICE BULLETIN
Bulletin No.: RSB-002-01
Model(s): 1998 ~ 2001 Leganza
Date: June 5, 2001
VIN Range: KLAVA6924WB147114 ~ KLAVB69251B318815
Description: A-Pillar Modification
Group: Campaigns
Reference: OSB01-9G-038
Prod, Dates: N/A
Daewoo Motor America has acknowledged a noncompliance with FMVSS 201 (Occupant Protection In Interior Impact) that exists in all 1998~2001 Leganza models. In the event of an accident, there is a possibility of increased head injury to the front seat passenger should contact with the passenger side A-Pillar occur.
To meet the FMVSS 201 requirement, Daewoo is implementing a recall action where Daewoo Dealers are to remove both the Driver and Passenger A-Pillar Trim Panels and install an adhesive-backed pad material over the center portion of the A-Pillars before reinstalling the Trim Panels.

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.

My camshaft position sensor in my Daewoo Nubira crapped out on me, I cannot get anybody to do the recall. Everyone keeps telling me I am at a loss. Is there anyone I can contact that will get this done for...


There different kinds of Cam sensors, Just by the cheap one around $60 and put it in yourself and save your self money because your car is 2002 and not under warranty any more and if your sensor failed then you need a new one,And Not that hard to do. Good luck

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...


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.

Locating camshaft positioning sensor on 2000 Daewoo Laganza


hi,
it is under the upper timing belt cover between the camshaft gears. According to the manual touching anything related to timing belt requires removing million parts including right front wheel. I suspect this might be an overkill just to remove upper timing belt cover.

So my advice would be to get it done by some mechanic as u will not be able to do it and may damage other parts also.

Thanks!
Sandy
