Yes they are located on the cylinder head you should see a wire across each glow plug held on by a 8mm nut they are similar to a spark plug but thinner

SOURCE: Glow PLugs and Relays

Good Day
The glow plug relays are located on the right front shock tower. Remove the cover and you will see two relays If I remember I think they are round, but not sure.

Please let me know how you make out and if there is anything else that I might be able to help you with.

SOURCE: need to bleed ssangyong muzzo 2.9 deisel

The fuel filter may have a bleed screw, undo the bleed screw slightly and crank the engine over until fuel spurts out ,if it does then retighten screw. If that doesn't work then the next Best way is to crack open the nuts on the injectors and get someone to crank the engine over , as fuel starts to come out of the joint retighten them up. This should get most of the air out, any remaining will quickly clear after the engine runs for a while.

SOURCE: 1997 Ssangyong Musso engine has erradic idle & intermittent start

i think the problem is in the fuel line. i have encounter it too.. the best way is to replace all fuel filter. muzzo have 3 fuel filter. 2 located at the engine and the other one located at the fuel tank they called it as strainer. u can see the opening of the tank underneath the back seat of the car. also good suggestion clean the tank. duel dirt is the main cause of your problem cause muzzo have only a small tip that why only little dirt can cause plunging in engine. sory for bad English

SOURCE: i have a ssangyong musso

Hi if you look at the pipes coming from your vacuum pump and follow the one that runs along the side of the engine and goes to the bulkhead you will find a T piece this has probably split and you no longer have the vacuum to close the fuel delivery

I have ssangyong 2006 diesel rodius 220,000 Kilo meter full service history some time wont start & orange engine light staying on lights were losing power and car was chucking/missing whats the...

have a load test done on the battery as it may be failing and not providing sufficient power to run the ECM. Check for alternator drive belt condition and tension. The combination of low current out put from the alternator and bad battery especially in cold weather will cause problems as describe.

Glow plug light

the light is on because there is current flowing to earth. I would be checking the relay as it may be failing and is turning on the glo -plugs when it is not necessary

Ssangyong rodius

Hi. Sometimes the obvious stuff is the winner. Have you checked the fuses - all of them whether they are listed as related or not, do a blanket check.
If its not a fuse you need to find out if you have fuel - even a blocked fuel filter will eventually stop you starting.
if you have fuel and all seems well probably the next step is compression, obviously a compression tester is king but even taking out the glow plugs and turning the engine over will give you a rough idea. You should get 4 fairly even "chuffs" as each cylinder reaches compression stroke.
Are there any unusual lights on or lights not coming on like the engine warning lamp?
After that its getting toward garage season and a code read of the engine to see if there are any clues there. jon

Ssangyong kyron wont start when cold

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.

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.

Rexton will not go past 2nd gear

Hi Belida, I'm very happy to be in Africa. Cold here means wearing my shirt buttoned up till about ten. I believe that the transmission may need to be diagnosed and the fault codes erased. Have that done and I believe it should also tell you of any other fault which may have affected the box, if any. I believe a simple reset will do the job for you. Brrrrrr....I'm answering you sitting here sweating, don't you just wish? Best regards John
