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

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!

    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.

  • Subject : Korando K290
    Hi KZN,

    I think the ignition system is managed by air/vacuum
    and one of the air circuits shuts off the fuel supply when the
    ignition is switched off.

    If air is escaping from that
    circuit, then the fuel would not be shut off when you turn the
    ignition off and remove the key.

    I head that this is how a
    2001 model is set up but I'm not sure about a 2006

    Good luck!

  • Subject :
    Sounds like your crankshaft sensor has gone bad.
    You can get to it
    either from the top or underneith.
    It's located next to the
    drivetrain in the top and is hold by an allen screw.
    What it does
    is that when your car is cold it's functioning as usual but as soon as
    it gets warm it's resistance is altered and gives an indication to the
    ecu that your timing is of and it shuts down the engine to protect it
    from damage.
    If you look from the top you will see a connector in
    the far back end of the engine with 2 wires in it.
    thats the CS
    sensor. Unscrew the screw and pull it straight up. Look at it and see
    if you have the one with an flat base or the one with an metal pig on
    it so that you can get the right one on ebay for instance. You can
    also do a search on google by using the a number that is stamped on
    it. Bought mine for $40 on Ebay, replaced it and it's been running
    fine for an year now.
    While you are at it replace the camshaft
    sensor (top front next to the egr pipe on the left side of the engine)
    as it usually goes when the CS sensor goes.

  • Subject : rexton wont start without easy start
    Hi, a faulty camshaft sensor can create many issues so replacing it is
    a start.
    Make sure your battery is in good condition as a weak
    battery can send mixed signals to the computer.
    Try disconnecting
    you battery and reconnecting it after a few minutes this can help
    In regards to fuel pressure did you prime the hand pump
    after you replaced the fuel filter as your system is probably
    detecting air in the system, don't be afraid to pump the primer
    several times or more.
    Hope this helps.

Subject : Glow plug removal.
Just like to share some advice on how to remove glow plugs
from a Rexton 2.7.

When the time came to replace the glow
plugs in my Rexton with 190256km, I found them extremely tight and a
couple barely movable.
What I did was to crack the glow plugs
about quarter to half a turn and then fill the glow plug wells with
WD40, drive the car for at least a week keeping the wells topped
What this does is when the piston moves up and down it
gradually draws in the WD40 in the threads of the glow plugs and
softens the carbon within the threads.
Before removal next warm
your engine and use your glow plug socket and turn the glow plugs back
and forth millimetre x millimetre be patient as this can take some
time, this again will allow the WD40 to penetrate the glow plug
Don't apply to much force on the socket as over exertion
can snap the plug.
Once all removed clean blow out the threads in
the head, You can crank the engine this will also assist in blowing
out any impurities.
Before installing the new plugs make sure you
apply anti seize on the threads of the new plugs as this will seal the
threads and assist in the removal plugs the next time the require

    Hi, your engine has a mechanical pump which needs to be
    First when was the last time you changed your diesel
    What you need to do is crack your injector lines at the
    injectors prime your system by pumping the manual hand primer until
    you feel it getting firm then get someone to turn your engine over
    until you see fuel spurting from the cracked injector lines once this
    happens tighten the injector lines gradually until the engine fires

      Hello Thomas, certified service didn't helped me with this problem.
      Very advanced mechanic recommended to replace clutch in differential
      gearbox. He tested car on a special axle tester and founded dissimilar
      front axle movement which depended on acceleration. If acceleration
      starts slowly, front axle is added, but in case of quick acceleration
      it is not added every time. I diagnose this before on icy roads on
      reverse movement to hill, but I didn't understood principles of Rexton
      gearbox. You could try it on wet surface and compare with different

Hey, MotorTorque again.

I write for the MotorTorque site and
they have recently finished the Ssangyong Korando review that was
mentioned last - so if anyone wants to watch it here it

feedback would be massively appreciated. Plus any thoughts on the car
itself be great - Would you buy one? If not, why?

I write for an automotive site and we recently did a video review of
the Korando, I don't know if anyone would like a look - we did like a
'taster' test to see if anyone could tell the difference between the
likes of the Ssangyong and a BMW. We did it with stuff like crisps and
chocolate as well...don't really know why.

Anyway, just let
me know if you want to see it and I will post the

I'm trying to change the glow plugs but my 10mm socket does no fit on
the plug does it require a special socket and were can I get one from.

    Try getting the outer diameter of a long reach 10mm machined down on a
    lathe.I did it and socket then fitted on glow plugs. Make sure you use
    penetrating oil(left on for a few days) and use continuous loosening
    and fastening motion when removing plugs(this will allow penetrating
    oil to work)

Subject : 2008 kyron automatic shuddering
I have a 2008 kyron 2.0 automatic.
My problem started with a
massive shuddering at low revs and just befor gear changes. Somewhere
round 60 km/h and 120 km/h. I have has the Side shafts checked and the
prop shaft/ drive train rebalanced and changed the main gear box
mount. It has helped the problem but I still have a shuddering at low
revs. Any sugestions.

Subject : Automatic Transmission Issue
hi. I 'm from Qatar. I have a Ssangyong Rexton 2003, Rx320 automatic-
model 4x4 clocked 72K kilometers. Recently I have found an issue with
the gear shift.

Starting from the 'P' to 'R' when the knob
reaches R - the vehicle starts to vibrate. Then 'N' no issue. Then to
the 'D' there is a small jerk, i think the gear system is engaging.
When start moving with the 'D'rive mode, the vehicle starts moving but
the gears are not loading as i believe from my experience. At some
certain point, the vehicle comes to a stop on the D mode, and only the
rpm increases. Then slowly the vehicle starts to move and suddenly a
pull to go. It happen often but, when the vehicle comes to a stop on
'D' and rpm goes high, if the gear nob changes to N and again back to
D makes the machine move. And once it got the momentum, it will move
faster. Why this is happeing?? Any serious issues??
