Question From tarbender on 2001 daewoo #3 spark plug had motor oil in it?

2001 daewoo lanos 116000 mi. overheated. i have water coming out the back side of engine i cannot see and had oil standing in #3 spark plug

Response From nickwarner

As I recall thats an overhead cam engine. The plug sits down a deep tube in the middle of the valve cover. Because of that the valve cover has individual seals around each tube. If one fails you will get a bunch of oil in a spark plug well and usually a misfire along with it. The valve cover gasket comes with new ones to fix that. As far as your coolant leak goes you should narrow down exactly where it is coming from as soon as possible to save some trouble when it gets any worse.

Response From tarbender

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Nick is one of the sharpest knives in the drawer as we know. Hard to get at heater hose. Careful if on the heater core but either way cut the hose carefully with a razor blade type something and peel if off not pull on it.

The "utility knife" type does have a blade available to pull to cut which would be a hardware store item at least here. They don't sell that car where I am in MA - USA so can't help with any exacting know how on the approach but it's fairly generic that things are hard to get to with almost everything now so understand but it can be done.

Spark plug is exactly as Nick said,

Yep, he's our Daewoo specialist.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

If anyone comes by with a Citroen 2CV I did (stupid as nothing for it available here) I can help. Dang - an umbrella with wheels!


Response From nickwarner

I'm such a specialist in cars whose manufacturers went bankrupt prior to the first models showing up in the states. But I've got some friends who had them. They got rid of them on my advice because I was tired of spending my free time fixing them.

Response From speed Top Rated Answer

How about saabs. I hate them with a passion, were the only dealerahip in town that sold them and probably the only that serviced them as a dealer....horrible cars.

Response From nickwarner

Saabs are like Thomas Jeffersons kids that he wouldn'd own up to. In heavy trucks its like a Sterling vs. Ford. Just something they are embarassed so bad they won't put their own name on it.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Out on a limb I shouldn't climb - I refuse to work on Saabs! Take those back to Sweden where they belong!


Torque settings for a Daewoo Nexia

Question From chrissy86 on Torque settings for a Daewoo Nexia

What are the torque settings on a cylinder head bolt for a Daewoo Nexia 1.5 N-Reg SOHC?
Year: 1996
Mileage: 60,000


Response From Sidom Top Rated Answer

Unfortunately Daewoo never did to well over here in the US, they were only here for a few years. So most US based databases don't support them.

I'll search around to see if I can come up with something.

Are they still selling new ones over there in the UK?

Response From Hammer Time

Do they use real bolts?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Hi Crissy,

We are experiencing some site problems and I don't think they sell that exact car in the US but there are techs from elsewhere.

Know this - some head bolts are one time use only and it won't just be a torque spec but also an order to tighten them. It has to be right for sure and I have no info for you. Sometimes a gasket will have the info in packaging - can't say for yours.

Bear with us and if no further response or site is down come back a visit later. Perhaps ask where you bought the parts if they will offer some help with specs and about one time head bolts. Sorry for the troubles - it happens,

Question From scott9797 on daewoo part

i am looking for a plastic connector piece that connects the upper radiator hose and the hose from the overflow tank to the engine and the heater. i dont know what it is called and need to get one since mine cracked. i have a 2000 daewoo leganza sx. anyone know what the part is called and where to get one?

Response From Sidom Top Rated Answer

Daewoo is no longer selling cars in the US anymore. Which I'm sure you are painfully aware of by now.

For a certain period it was almost impossible to get any parts for them.... From what I've heard some parts are becoming available now.

You can try this website. I haven't personally dealt with any of these sites so I can't give you any reviews.....good or bad.

The part you are describing sounds like part of the upper hose assembly. If that is the case, you are going to need the whole hose assembly or fabricate something. You're more than likely aren't going to find just the coupler. Those aren't even available for the domestic cars that use that type of setup....

Question From shane481z on daewoo

recently purchased a 2000 daewoo leganza not getting any power to fuel pump.fuel shut off switch is not tripped and i changed relays?

Response From Double J Top Rated Answer others have chimed in on I'll try something.
I have onlly worked on 1 Daewoo and it was a was flooded...R & R' D the spark plugs to clean and deflood the engine.
Thank God the owner just wanted it running to get rid of it..his was in BAD shape.
Anyway,I have very little knowledge of the systems on this...but....
Does the vehicle have spark?
If not, systems are designed to shut off fuel pumps if no spark is present.I would assume this has a similar set -up.
Something to check into...

Just a thought
