Subject : Brake pulses and delayed gear change from R to D
My 2009 built Kyron M200 XDi now has a pulse feeling as I gently brake
or when car moves by idol speed. Does not pulse when braking firmly.
The car stalled once when I had to brake hard so as not to miss a
driveway. I thought it might be brake booster/check valve, however
dealers have told me it could be a variety of things such as ABS.

Also when putting in D gear after reversing, there's a delay in
engagement from R to D and sometimes need to tap accelerator to engage
gear...
Can anybody offer any help with these issues I'm
having?

Subject : kyron viscous fan noise
I am aware of all comments and ctricisms of the whirring noise from
the fan. Mine is 2007 which I have only owned for 5 months but I am
aware that the frequency of the fan coming in has increased with the
slight increase in ambient temperature. I understand this but I
foresee that it will become unbearable [to me ]in midsummer. Can the
viscous fan be worn and should I expect improvement if replaced with
new?

  • Subject : kyron viscous fan noise
    Hi!I had a 2006 kyron and it had the same noise that you are talking
    about.It was only when a friend of mine who was a mechanic came for a
    drive one day asked me if that noise wrecked my head that I found out
    the problem.I assumed that they were just aloud jeep and didnt think
    there was a problem.He told me that the viscous fan was seized which
    would cause more fuel consumption and the loud noise.I ordered a new
    one online for €220 and he only charged me €50(Mates rate but it
    shouldnt cost much more than €100) to install it.The difference was
    unreal.Sounds just like a normal diesel vehicle now and you can hear
    yourself think again.Hope this helps

    Hi Torre,
    Happy to help you solve your following problem. "Temp
    gauge drops to 0 on highway".This can easily be solved by adding
    coolant. Add engine coolant above marked max. level. Make sure to
    fill 3 to 4 cm above marked level.
    Check Engine light and shut off
    Air Conditioner by itself (you should notice if AC is on when temp
    gauge drops) is a indication of fault and precaution.So this should
    also solved.
    Please report progress.

Subject : Problems with changing gears
I have a 09 2.7 Rexton.

Recently the transmission has
developed a problem. I can't change gears unless I start the vehicle
in gear and don't take my foot completely off the
clutch.

This started one night my wife was going to take the
Rexton out. She didn't get very far only about 100yards before she
stopped the vehicle because she could not change up. And that the
clutch pedal was on the floor. and that the "WD4low" light was
on.

I got there and lifted the pedal up. the pedal felt
stiff. I then put the vehicle in 1st, started the vehicle as it
lurched forward. I managed to get it home. Than I was able to start it
in reverse and for some reason I could then shift to 1st and then 2nd
and back to first again.

But if I put the car in neutral,
take my foot off the clutch, I can than not get it into any gears. I
have to turn off the engine, shift into gear an then I can
setup.

The only think is that putting into WD4low did
something. I hope the wife wasn't driving on the motorway with that
on!

How should I start on this. The Rexton has rarely been
driven. It has 10000 miles on it. Bit early for the clutch to
go.

I certainly hope you can help out.

Sal.

  • Subject : Problems with changing gears
    Hi Sal,

    It sounds like when your wife drove the car in 4x4
    low, the drive wheels have spun on themselves. When you drive in low
    you must not drive on dry/wet flat tarmac.

    Try putting car in
    4x4low and reverse the car as long as you can.

    Hopefully
    this should put the wheels correctly

Subject : Unexpected increase in revs
Hi, have got a rexton ssangyong 4x4. Over the past week whilst
driving it, it suddenly increases in revs even though I don't have my
foot on the clutch! It does move, but slowly. Will switch off the
engine, but when I restart, it is the same. Only after you drive it
for 10 mins will it return to normal. There are no warning lights
showing the whole time. Any help/advice appreciated. Thanks Anne

    They have vacuum pipes that suck the front hubs into place so they are
    then connected to the gearbox. On my Korando (and many others) they
    came off and the metal parts had rusted away so I couldn't just
    reconnect pipes.

    If you look behind your front wheels just
    above the center CV joints there are flexible hoses, 1 per side.
    Follow them go to a little box on the inner wing. This box has 1
    electrical connector block and 1 hose that connected to the back of
    the engine. Check that the electrical connector is working and in
    place. If you're careful and confident you can disconnect the hoses to
    check them. Get somebody to select 4wd and the box should allow
    suction to the pipes that go to the wheels, feel for it. If there is
    suction then check the whole length of the hoses for holes, all the
    way to the back of the hubs. If there are no leaks then the hub itself
    may not be airtight or the metal stubby pipes on the hub may be rotten
    (my problem).
    I tried several repairs and all worked for a time
    but I gave up in the end and bought manual locking hubs.
    If you
    are okay working on a car you can buy manual locking hubs and put them
    on yourself.
    It is an easy job but if you're not confident then
    get a mechanic to do it.
    If you do have manual hubs put on then it
    will mean that you will have to get out of the car to turn the hubs
    then get back in and select 4WD BUT it is a very good solution and
    extremely reliable.
    I got my hubs on Ebay for £100 a pair. The
    manual locking hubs have never failed me.
    This club is very good
    and there's lots of help
    here.

    Sounds like a break in a vacuum pipe. The first one that went on mine
    was a small U shaped rubber pipe that connects to a vacuum modulator
    at the front of the battery box, pence to fix, the next ones to go
    were the steel pipes that feed vacuum to the wheel hubs (to engage the
    free wheel hubs)This is a bit trickier to fix, I made up some small
    copper pipes and fixed them in place using some epoxy putty. No
    problems since.

Subject : Problem partly fixed!
Hello. My 2000 Musso 3200 is on dual fuel and has an intermittent
problem on both fuels. Loss of power, gear changes become clunky,
won’t change down when it should. Found that the top connector
rubber boot, of the narrow plastic vacuum pipe from top of inlet
manifold to gearbox, was perished and letting in air so we taped it up
and this seal fixed the problem; thus I ordered a new
replacement.
After installing the replacement I am getting the
identical problem after I have driven around 15km and it won’t
disappear on that journey. However, it appears that when I have parked
for a while and start up, it’s fine again. IN all other respects,
everything is working fine. Would appreciate any ideas about why I had
the improvement but still have a problem. Thanks to all.

Subject : Oil appears in water reservoire
I bought the 2002 model of Ssangyong Rexton (290) about 4 months ago
and have enjoyed using it. Recently, I started experiencing the
problem whereby oil appears in the water reservoire. I consulted
mechanics and they changed the head gasket for me, but the problem
persists.
Anyone with an idea about the possible
causes?
Thank you.

    Hi - I have a similar problem with my 2005 Rexton 2.7 xdi - took it to
    the agents - they identified it as the oil cooler. The oil cooler is
    very expensive unfortunately, I still need to fixe mine.

    Hi I have a Similar problem with my 2006 RX 2.7 XDI as well Check
    engine light goes on but the temp gauge drops to under C. I spoke with
    a mechanic he said sensor problem. Yes It has a coolant temp sensor.
    Not sure if replacing it will help ?

    It could be a electrical short problem. You could have somebody sit in
    the car and try and move/jiggle the wiring to see if you can repeat
    the issue. Try it first with the car not running but with the ignition
    on. If that does not find anything then start it up and do the same
    thing being careful about the things moving and hot in the engine
    compartment.

    My 2006 Kyron has this same odd overheat warning that comes up without
    reason. The first time it happened I nearly freaked out but when I
    stopped I found there was nothing wrong. I restarted and drove on with
    no probs. You can do it at the red lights or pull over. I've found
    that sometimes you can just keep going and it will return to normal in
    a K or so. However, if you don't actually stop, it can keep going on
    and off and drive you crazy. The actual stop and switch off cures the
    problem. It seems to happen if you take a break for half an hour after
    running the highway for 2 or 3 hours. A shorter toilet break doesn't
    seem to trigger it. Maybe a steam bubble forms or the block overheats
    the sensors while it is temporarily switched off. The engine bay does
    not seem overheated. In any event I'm not going to blow bucks on
    something that I can live with. Apart from that, I'm happy with the
    car. Cheers, Geoff.

    I have exactly the same problem with 2006 Kyron. It never alarms from
    a cold start (I CAN DRIVE ALL DAY) but once I stop for a spell and
    re-start the temp alarm goes off.

Subject : Ssangyong Kyron Problem
Have a 2006 Kyron which i am about to give up on. Cut out after a
fill of fuel so assumed it was a problem with fuel, drained it,
replaced injectors, common rail pump, fuel tank and fuel line, filters
etc. Now has no power and a knocking noise. Have spent a fortune so
far and reluctant to have to spend more! Any ideas appreciated! Thanks

Hi!
Some days my Rexton will start easily, other days it doesn't
start at all. It is the same with cold and warm engine. Error codes
tells us there are something wrong with the camshaft sensor and
crankshaft sensor. Both of them are replaced, wiring for the camshaft
sensor is also replaced. Power relay for engine system is also
replaced. I would be happy if someone have any ideas of whats wrong!
Thanks!

    I had an issue that sounds very similar. I ended up taking the car
    into the Ssangyong dealership, (on the back of a truck), they plugged
    it into the computer and reprogrammed the ignition to read the keys as
    it had been scrambled. They think that as I had been need a large
    transmitter tower on a minesite when the issue had occurred, it had
    scrambled the coding between the keys and the ignition. Took all of
    about two minutes to correct but cost me $300 for the truck ride.
    Still love the car though.
