I have purchased parts for my Daewoo Leganza CDX on eBay for reasonable prices. I got an ECU for $60! There are online stores you can buy from, but they are expensive. I would check to see if there is another engine similar to your that you can swap out parts. For my Leganza, the '99 Isuzu Rodeo has the same engine, so everything but electrical can be used in my car. Daewoos seem to be dependable, so I wouldn't worry too much!
Also, I have seem Daewoos on Craigslist for pretty cheap. I thought about buying one with lots of body damage and parting it out. If you have the room and the time, that is what I would recommend. That way, you have all the parts you need!
Hope this helps!

#1079 of 1365 Air bag light is on
May 07, 2008 (11:02 am)
2000 Leganza CDX. Never had an issue with anything related to the airbags. I allowed an old battery to finally fail. When I replaced the battery, the airbag light is on. I have the factory manuals. As I understand it, when the voltage drops below a certain minimum (10 volts or something like that), the airbag light comes on. Also, as I read the manual, it will not shut off without automatically...even after installing the correct battery power. So, now the light is on. The dealer wants $100 just to use the code reader, find out the reason, and re-set it.....even it was just the low battery. OUCH. Any other ideas? As much as I want to believe that it is only on because of the battery, another part of me doesn't want to find out there was something more serious....right after I needed it to function.

#1081 of 1365 1998 1.4 Lanos Misfire Problem after igniton coil change
May 26, 2008 (4:56 pm)
Hi can anyone help me with a misfire problem. My Lanos was working fine and after parking on restart was misfiring on two cylinders. Mechanic advised ignition coil faulty. Car would hardly move and needed towing home. Changed the coil and now the car is running again but is misfiring in 2nd and 3rd gear. Will run ok in 4th and 5th at speed but jolts in the lower gears. The coil change clearly resolved the main problem. I've notice a 2 inch split in the air hose between the air filter and engine. Any advice would be helpful. Mark

I have a 1999 Daewoo Lanos that a friend gave to my husband and I. It runs great but we can not get it to pass smog, so therefore, we can't register it. I see that you said you bought a new ECU, so did we because we were told that was probably the prolem, it didn't help. May I ask why you bought a ECU?
#1083 of 1365 Daewoo Lanos won't pass smog
May 26, 2008 (10:47 pm)
Can anyone offer some insight on a Daewoo that will not pass smog?

Can you please tell me if you were ever able to get you car to pass smog and what you did to get it to pass smog. We also live in California and have failed twice and they said that maybe we needed a new ECU which we purchased from a junk yard, and it still failed. can you offer any insight????
#1085 of 1365 Broken Belt
May 27, 2008 (2:07 pm)
Timing belt broke on 2002 leganza, i was just leaving a parking spot going maybe 10MPH, would that still cause engine damage?

I would have to say yes. I know that with the timing belt in my Volswagen they said if it breaks you might as well kiss your engine goodbye. Some cars are really affected by the timing belt. Sorry to hear that.
