What causes a Daewoo Laganza transmission to stick in park?

The problem is most likely your brake switch. This switch activates your brake lights as well as disengaging the shift so you can get out of park. It is located in front of your brake pedal arm. Its a black switch, about 3" long and has a 4 pronged electrical connection to it. its easy to remove as all it takes is a twist which lines up two legs on the switch with slots in the bracket. Your brake lights probably aren't working either. COATS AUTOMOTIVE will ship one to you within 2 days.

If the heater in a Daewoo Leganza does not work well and you have already had the antifreeze lines flushed with new antifreeze and a new thermostat what else can you do?

It could be a partially blocked heater core, a faulty heater valve that allows the coolant through the heater core or it could be a faulty water pump.

How do you replace the fuel filter located on a 2000 Daewoo Leganza?

I recently changed the fuel filter on my leganza in about 5 minutes. It was insatlled with two plastic clamps that come with the new one. If you look at the new one you will see the clamps. Squeeze the middle of the clamp and the line should separate. I did have a little trouble separating the line on top of the fuel filter. It was metal and not plastic. I worked with it until it detached. Again squeeze the middle of the clamp and the line will slide right on. After installing the new one the car started right up. This was the problem with my car not wanting to accelerate on take off. This also stopped a surge when the car idled.

Where are the timing marks for the camshafts on a daewoo espero?

on the cam sprocket there is a line on the outer edge. align that up with the notch on the back plate line that up then look at the crank pulley there you will see another notch high light these points with some nail varnish making visable marking on the cam/crank and the back plate (but if you have a vauxhall cavalier manual they are the same engines 1.8-18SE or for 2.0-20NE/20SEH).as i have the same car and just fitted a new cambelt i know this.

Transmission Fluid
Daewoo Lanos
Daewoo Leganza

How and when do you change transmission oil on a Daewoo Lanos 16 L?

Most of these Daewoos out on the market today do not come with owner's manuals any more, or spare tires, or radio reset codes, or jackstands for that matter. Mine didn't. The general public (including GM) has scrapped Daewoo, that's why they're so cheap. I also need to know how to check the fluid. Most cars with an A/T require the transmission to be hot, engine idling in park, to check the fluid level, but not all. On some you check it cold engine off. The problem with not knowing for sure is that overfilling the transmission can damage it. For that reason I suggest you get that owner's manual you are missing. Sources are dealer, salvage yard, e-bay, and many on-line sites. Search with the term, "Automobile Owner's Manual". Draining and changing the fluid can either be accomplished by removing the drain plug if it has one or by removing the return line from the radiator and with a helper starting the engine and allowing the trans pump to pump the fluid out one quart at a time. Pump out one quart in a clear container and then stop the engine and add a quart of fresh fluid. Keep doing this until you see clear clean fluid. This will actually remove all the fluid and is better than just draining the transmission pan, which only removes some of the fluid. You will also need to know the exact type fluid to add. A call to the dealer can get you this info.

How to change a serpentine belt on a 2001 Daewoo Leganza?

I have done mine twice. First get the reservoir and air filter out of your way. Then get a ratchet on the pulley that is just a tensioner - by turning the bolt you create slack in the belt. I hadn't worked on cars in years - the alternator seemed simple enough - but one thing to note is that you do not have to pull out the bottom bolt to remove it - you can't anyway. There are two bolts behind it that hold a casting for the bottom bolt.

Why would a Daewoo Leganza not shift out of gear?

I have a 2000 Leganza and it would not shift out of park/gear recently. I discovered it was a bad brake switch with signals the brake lights to activate and the shifter to release. The switch is a small plug-type part and I found a used one on line for about 30 bucks. labor to put it in was about 50. !

rjemay@msn.com

I had same problem years ago - there was a recall on the brake light switch - you may be able to get it replaced for free?

In case you get stuck though and need to get it home - stick a screw driver into the slot next to your shifter to get it into gear. Get the switch fixed though - your brake lights may not be coming on.

I read in another forum that it might be the brakelight switch that is making the shift lock, lock up.

What does trouble code P1627 relates to for a 1999 Daewoo Leganza?

AnswerThis code is related to the sensor switch on the Air Intake Unit. Check your cable under the hood of the car, make sure it is plugged in, when it is, clear the code and start the engine. The code should be gone. If the problem persists then you might have to replace the cable

IS the leganza engine an interferance engine?

yes it is so make sure it all serviced as interferance engines run tighter than common engines so if one thing goes the whole lot goes.

How do you check to see if the throttle position sensor is okay on a Daewoo Leganza?

3 very quick and obvious things that will tell you the TPS is operating correctly. 1) If no signal is being received, the transmission will stay in 3rd gear and will not shift. 2) If high voltage exist, the transmission will shift very late if at all but will take of in 1st gear. 3) The check engine light will be on.

How do you change a heater core on a 2000 deawoo leganza?

I just did this and it is pretty easy. Some cars need the whole dash to come out, but you can get everything out from underneath with the leganza. This is what I did: drained the water system disconnected the two hoses from engine bay took out all plastic trim including glovebox (and metal brace bar) took out centre console took out metal supporting bracket at front of centre console (makes it easier to pulls things out) unscrewed bottom plastic cover (loads of screws, some well hidden) unplugged pollen filter pipes and vacuum assists (not sure of the names! Everything that looked like it needed to come out, or just off) when everything is undone, just work the plastic shroud out. It is sealed with mastic at the front and needs some thumping. I broke several bits, including a bracket between the pipes, but nothing that would stop it being put back together, or working 100% Once the shroud is out of the way, the matrix is visible. unclip the top clip with a screwdriver and the matrix falls out. Took a couple of hours to do whole job, including replacement. I'm farily competent.

How do you replace the alternator on a 2000 Daewoo Leganza?

I just did mine about 3 days ago. The serpintean belt must be tooken off first, under the car remove the guard, the black piece of plastic in the front right. once thats done, there is a pulley that the serpentian belt is attached to. Look at diagram below>

Serpentian belt diagram:
--- and | | | is belt. ALT is altinator. Adj is tension pulley that you must pry toward altinator to create slack. (note: in order to do this you must jack up car, and go under.)

_
ALT---------------------------|()|
| |
| |
----------------_ |
---------------Adj |
| |
|_ _|
|()|--------------------------|()|


Once you pry the Adj and create slack take the belt off. Next you must unscrew all screws on altinator including the wires attached to it. There is a wire attached on the back were it kinda clips off, and one that is screwed in it for the curren on the sidet.. Daewoo's shittie design makes it so you have to actually climb under the car on jack, and take off the altinator mounting bracket screws under the altinator. Once this is done remove the altinator my taking it under the car, it should drop off when you remove the mounting screws. It should kinda slide out, but you have to work it around the exhaust. Take the altinator out, then replace it with a new one. Put the mounting screws on first while holing it with one hand. then put everything back together. Put the serpentian belt on the same way you took it off. NOTE: its quite a bit harder to put the belt back on. I used a wrenche to pry it loose then slid the belt on. Its is very hard to pry, especially with one hand and the belt in the other. But shouldn't be to hard if your strong. then reconnect the battery, and Bam there yah go. To test it take off one battery terminal while the car is on, if it still runs. you did it.
