CAM TIMING

1998 Daewoo Other • 6 cylinder Automatic • 179,000 miles

Hi I have replaced head was told the head was skimmed, vacumed tested. My mechanic friend put it on for me. We did cam timing which I think was wrong. Car was fireing like trying to start. Downloaded the manual(service manual musso)from internet followed instructions and corrected cam timing all looks right. Compression was at around 130psi on cyl1 before I redid cam timing now timing looks right as per manual now have around 30psi in 1, 2 and 3 cylinders. Can you help me?

Our database does not have any information on this vehicle so I don't know what engine you have. It could be one of Hyundai or Kia engines.

Do you have the engine code?
Is it hydraulic valve lifters?
Are you sure it is 1, 2 and 3? The right bank should be 2, 4 and 6 whereas the left bank should be 1, 3 and 5.
