Daewoo, is anybody having problems with these cars.

Just want to know if anybody who owns a Daewoo is having any problems especially with the engine? If so, I know how to modify them and put a different engine in.

Problems? That'll be the Daewoo! I had one for a while and modified it by selling it and buying a Honda. Have a look on the links below - there may be help there.

The whole wide world is.



Thats why Chevrolet bought the company and changed the name.

Apart from the Matiz 0.8 and 1.0, the newer 1.2 litre Kalos, and the 6-cylinder Magnus, all Daewoo engines are based on GM Europe (Opel/Vauxhall) units. The 1.4, 1.5, 1.6 engines in Nexia, Cielo, Racer, LeMans, Espero, Lanos, Nubira, Lacetti, Rezzo and Tacuma (and the 1.8 in some versions of Rezzo/Tacuma, and possibly the latest Nubira/Lacetti) are all based on GM Family I engines, so it should be relatively straightforward to fit a 1.4 of 1.6 Vauxhall/Opel unit.

The 1.8 and 2.0 and 2.2 4-cyl engines in Espero, Nubira, Leganza, Magnus, Evanda and the 2.0 in Rezzo/Tacuma are based on GM Family II engines, so a 1.8, 2.0 or 2.2 Vauxhall/Opel unit should be a reasonably easy swap.

The 6-cylinder unit in Magnus/Evanda is Daewoo's own design.

The 0.8 3-cylinder unit in Matiz is based on a Suzuki design, but highly modified. The 1.0 litre in Matiz, and the 1.2 litre in Kalos are based on the 3-cylinder, and are unique to Daewoo.



A lot of the engine problems were the same problems found on some Vauxhall/Opel models (e.g timing belt tensioners failing) because the parts were so similar.
