Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Ssangyong rexton 2.9l. I have an unusual problem where the temperature gauge shoots right up whenever the fan is turned on yet the engine is not overheating. I assume this is an electrical fault but can anybody tell me where to start looking?

Start with the sensor on the engine. Then the relay. From there, I would take a look at the guage itself.

SOURCE: Radiator fan won't kick in

On my slightly older Saab the radiator fan is electric and only is engaged when the temperature meter reaches 3/4 to the top.

When the car is in motion it will not spin since the air flowing through the radiator from the speed is sufficient to maintain normal engine temp. Only when the car is still it for a few minutes it may start to spin especially during summer, it will sometimes continue to spin even after the engine is turned off. This is normal behavior for this car.

To conclude, if your engine temp only goes up to half the gauge there would be no need for the fan to start spinning. If it doesn't engage during the conditions I described above there would be a problem that needs to be fixed.

SOURCE: Mini Cooper convertible is overheating, fan contiues after stop

I had this exact same problem -- for about a year and a half! Replaced thermostat, replaced sensor twice, replaced overflow tank, replaced radiator cap, placed a grounding kit on the car in case the problem was electrical ... and was ABOUT to replace thermostat again and then the water pump when a new mechanic suggested we bleed air out of the cooling system. The heater core was PACKED with air, as was the upper hose valve area. Previous mechanic had been using a pressurized fill device to bleed the system and this had just been backing air into the heater core. There are two valves under the hood for bleeding air -- one on the heater core and one on the upper hose. It only takes a few minutes to fix this!

SOURCE: i have a ssangyong rexton and it wont start it

There's a number of possible reasons.
You don't mention if the engine turns over in the attempt, and you don't say which light is on.
A SsangYong service person can plug in a diagnostic tool to see what error codes are present.

I dont think the coolant is boiling, I think you have an air bubble in your system wich is causing a air lock and youll need it flushed out. Your reservior cap should be tight always.. never loose this is an air tight system and your allowing it to get air in it. I have a 2002 linc ls and just had to pay 1000.00 to replace the system because I let an air lock go for too long and had so much back pressure I blew up my reservior.

My 2005 ssangyong rexton temp gauge goes up to boiling and engine light comes even though water is only normal running temp how can i fix this


If engine light comes on you have a code in the computer. Go to AutoZone or similar as soon as possible after light comes on and get it scanned. This will give you a idea what is wrong. I think it will be a faulty ECT sensor (engine coolant temp). How do you know that coolant is only at normal operation temp?

My 2005 Rexton 270 xdi will not start till slightly mobbed with aerosol.


I'm wondering why the guy who is holding the code reader can't tell you what it means ?
He is obviously not a Ssangyong specialist - or is it not a Ssangyong Scan100 gauge ??
I'm prepared to get you answers if I know it was done at a Ssangyong dealership on a genuine Scan100 gauge :)

This will take 24 hrs once I read your reply

My rexton 2005 wount star when its cold changed glow plug relay stil the same . and no glow plug light on the dash bord thanks


Two part answer, firstly the glow plug light. The glow plug light on a Ssangyong will only illuminate if the ambient temperature is low enough for the glow plugs to require heating. I did not believe it when I first heard this but sure enough, on the first frosty morning I had the truck, the glow plug light came on for a few seconds. Don't worry about it, the temperature needs to be really cold before it will come on.
Secondly the no-start issue, I had a similar problem with my Ssangyong Rexton. Unfortunately, it is the injector pump, the filter gets clogged with micro-particles of crud. Take it to a diesel pump specialist (as a Ssangyong dealer won't know what to do in my experience and they will charge $000's to fix) and get them to remove and clean the injector pump.

Where is the oils filter located on a Diesel Sangyong Texton 2005 Merc DXi270


The oil filter for the diesel Rexton is behind the engine block on the passengers side. If you remove the plastic engine cover and stand next to the passengers mirror, you will see the casing next to the firewall.
