Sounds like the flap that changes the path of the air is stuck either the actuator that moves the flap is faulty plug is loose or something plastic broke. Most cars you have to remove the whole dashboard to get to it.

Car is losing ability to accelerate at times. I have changed the fuel filter cartridge but the the problem persists intermittently. Overall the cars performance is down on what it usually is. What else could be causing this?

There are a number of things that can cause this problem. depending on the type of use the vehicle has been given. short trips where the engine does not get really hot cause buildups in the combustion areas residue /gums in the injectors etc. I would start by buying a good quality fuel treatment such as Pro-ma diesel treatment that not only cleans the fuel system but also removes any water buildup. I would also take it for a long drive of several hours. check that the air filter is reasonably clean. This is now I would start.

I always add a feel additive when I top up the tank. I also had the air filter changed not long ago. The car generally has good long runs when used and the problem with accelerating happens at odds times. Is there another filter in the Tank or could it be a problem with glow plugs or pump?

hi I have 2014 ssangyong stavic, doesn't have dipstick to check the level transmission fluid .

Yes, it's a tough one, there is a dipstick tube but no dip stick, it's a special tool only Ssangyong dealaers have, they don't sell them/you can't buy them. Some of them don't have it themselves and don't even know that there is a dipstick tube. Also make sure you top it up with special fluid not DEX III. Best source of information is ssangyongclub.co.uk, after registration you can download workshop manuals detailing how to check oil level. There is also a picture with the measurements of the dipstick, so you can use anything and just mark it as per the measurements.

I have changed the transmission filter and oil ,manual book it says 8 litres ,but i put 6 litres, some mechanic told me there will be some fluid in the converter ,so that is what I am not sure about it.
Do I need to add another 2 liters or should be OK.
Tnx

If your question refers to the park brake than try to push in the release handle, as sometimes it does not fully retract by itself.

I had a problem with a locked gear selector and the cure was effected by replacing the brake light switch however I was locked out of all gears.

Brake switch or the actuator that releases the lock under the center console.

Any of the door switches, or if you have the ultrasonic motion sensor one of them could be playing up.

Hi everyone I'm just wondering why 2015 SsangYong stavic airbag ligt went on the dash.? Can anyone pls give an advice. Thanks

2 answers
Banyek

Wow, so many possible reasons. First of all working on airbag systems requires knowledge and caution ,doing anything wrong can trigger the airbags etc which can lead to injury and monetary losses. Strictly speaking disturbing airbag components actually requires the system to be disarmed first with the appropiate diagnostic tool. Do not use multimeter. Airbag system has many components. Actual airbags, seat belt pre-tensioners, clock spring in the steering wheel, crash sensors on the sides and front, control module. A fault with any of these will bring on the airbag light. Most common is the clock spring (cable drum) and people stuffing objects under the front seats and disturbing the connections (plugs) in the process. You can check the latter. Disconnect the battery, wait for 30 minutes to allow capacitors which store energy in case battery gets disconnected during the crash before the airbags need to go off to discharge, and check that no plugs have come apart under the seat. Apart from that, you'll need a diagnostic tool which will pinpoint the fault. Time to visit your Ssangyong dealer for a quick and accurate diagnosis.

its the wiring harness under the passenger front seat that is the problem.

I have a 2013 Stavic diesel and constantly makes a rattling sound when I reverse or push the accelerator half way down. The noise is louder and rather emabarrassing, however the mechanic said it appears to be engine internally and would cost thousands to fix but is just the sound of the diesel. Has anyone else had this issue?

Ok. So if it costs thousands to fix it's NOT a JUST. You may want to ask another mechanic with a slightly more professional approach. As for most people including me, there are so many different types of rattles and noises, that can come from an engine and people's perception of rattle, without hearing it, it would be irresponsible to come to conclusions.

I found that the pipe for the transmission dip stick was resting against part of the motor and rattling, I simply moved it away a bit and problem solved

I have a 2011 Ssang Yong Stavic. The battery went dead and the people who worked on it did some damage to it. When the battery was charged, the engin turn but it would not start. The Auto electrician changed the computer box and later even all the Diesel Injectors were changed. I believe the glo plugs are ok. The engin still turn but does not want to start, they dont know what the problem is , Any possible answers?

There are only a few reasons for a common rail diesel engine not to start. 1 no compression in the engine (check compression) , 2 no fuel pressure, (use diagnostic tool to compare commanded and actual rail pressure) 3 injectors are not getting command to open (immobiliser disabling fuel injection). second and third should bring on check engine light or immobiliser light) In your case I would say it's the third scenario. Any mechanic /Auto Electrician should be able to diagnose it, but I advise to get a ssangyong specialist involved to avoid further hit and miss. I think they already replaced functioning components.
