Hey I've got a 2004 rexton with a starting problem. Have to jump or aero start everytime even if it's been turned off for a second. Had the glow plugs and relay done, took it to ssangyong dealership, put their computer on it and nothing relevant to the problem comes up. Replaced the fuel pump and even tried one that auto pumps still nothing. Can't see any leaks or anything to make it lose fuel pressure. Anyone with the same problem or any ideas? Tia

I have a musso with the 2.9 engine, the same as the rexton 290. the rextons changed engines from a 290 to a 270 around 2004, so unsure if we have the same engine. It does sound like an air leak since the problem doesn’t go away when the engine is warm. But your extra fuel pump should have fixed that. Its not a battery problem is it? It’s got plenty of crank? And once it’s running it’s fine?

Yeah mines a 270. Maybe it's a leak further down then coz everything closer to the top is fine. And yes perfect when running and the battery is new.

Hello guys I have a rexton I 2004 2.9l Mercedes diesel and automatic transmisión. My problem is when I start the car it takes a while to get in gear. The colder the car the longer it takes. I changed oils and filters. What els can I do.

Have you checked the trans oil level, is a 16 mm plug above the trans pan on the right hand side ,the trans will need to be warm and engine running then fill it up until the oil runs out ,note the vehicle must be level when you top it up ,

I have a Ssangyong Rexton 2.7 xdi 2006. The auto transmission seems as if it cant decide what gear to go in. Sometimes when I stop I have no gears at all and have to turn the ignition off and on then I get gears but it lacks power.
Any ideas on the problem?


It's probably low on oil. I just bought a car with this exact same issue for $1000 and after putting a couple of litres of transmission fluid in her, it runs like a dream. I would suggest you take it to a shop and get it checked for leaks as well if this has happened.

Hello, I have a 2004 270XDI THE CAR HAS an erratic temp gauge when it will hear right up every now and then but car not hot

Anyway I've noticed I dont have any Parker lights on both sides front, not do I have tail lights on the passenger rear, all bulbs are good however 1 tail light bulb is missing,

What I do find strange is all the bulbs on the rear passenger will light up when the left indicator is on with the headlights and brake pedal, with all of the above on the left Indicator flashes fast like it is missing the rear bulb but is on solid with 1 other bulb on very dim and the rest working properly,

Anyone have any ideas on what may cause this, I find it very odd, could this have something to do with the temp gauge (read on a forum broken tail light can affect this also)


First change the thermostat and temp sensor. This also allows the connections to be "fiddled with" cause this car has terrible connections! About the lights, again fiddle with connections first.

I am having problems with my Diesel Rexton 2.7 when I turn left or right sharply there a loud clunking noise which seems to be from the the transfer box area. But other times it appears to be from the front of the vehicle. I have had the front of the diff removed to make sure everything is okay in there. The CV joints have been serviced and are okay. I have just had the transfer box fully serviced and the transmission. As soon as I take the front tail shaft there is no problem turning no clunking at all. So I am and so is my mechanic at loss as to where the problem lies. I am wondering if it could be a problem with computer because I have a spare to replace it.
