Ssangyong Actyon FAQ's
Can I tow a trailer with my Ssangyong Actyon?
Yes, Ssangyong Actyon models are designed to tow trailers within certain weight limits. The maximum towing capacity can vary depending on the specific model and engine configuration of your Actyon, so it is important to consult the owner's manual for the exact towing capacity and guidelines. Additionally, ensure that your Actyon is equipped with the necessary towing package and hitch receiver to safely tow a trailer.
How do I change a flat tire on my Ssangyong Actyon?
If you experience a flat tire on your Ssangyong Actyon, first find a safe location away from traffic to park the vehicle. Locate the spare tire, jack, and lug wrench in your Actyon's trunk or designated storage area. Loosen the lug nuts on the flat tire, but do not remove them completely. Place the jack under the vehicle's designated jacking point, raise the vehicle until the flat tire is off the ground, and then remove the lug nuts fully. Take off the flat tire, mount the spare tire onto the wheel bolts, hand-tighten the lug nuts, lower the vehicle, and then use the lug wrench to fully tighten the lug nuts in a star or crisscross pattern.
How do I change the air filter in my Ssangyong Actyon?
To change the air filter in your Ssangyong Actyon, locate the air filter housing, usually found near the engine. Remove any clips or screws securing the housing, and then open it to access the air filter. Carefully remove the old air filter, making note of its orientation, and replace it with a new one that matches the exact specifications outlined in the owner's manual. Close the air filter housing, secure any clips or screws, and ensure a proper seal to prevent any unfiltered air from entering the engine.
How do I change the oil in my Ssangyong Actyon?
To change the oil in your Ssangyong Actyon, you will need to locate the oil drain plug underneath the engine and place an oil pan beneath it. Remove the drain plug and allow the old oil to fully drain out. Once drained, replace the drain plug and refill the engine with the recommended amount and type of oil as specified in the owner's manual.
How do I check the tire pressure on my Ssangyong Actyon?
To check the tire pressure on your Ssangyong Actyon, start by ensuring the tires are cold (have not been driven for at least one hour). Locate the tire valve stem on each tire and remove the valve cap. Use a tire pressure gauge to measure the pressure by firmly pressing it onto the valve stem. Compare the reading to the recommended tire pressure specified in the owner's manual or on a sticker usually found on the driver's side door jamb or inside the fuel filler door. If the pressure is too low, add air until the desired pressure is reached. If the pressure is too high, release air by pressing the center pin in the valve stem or using a valve core tool. Replace the valve cap after checking or adjusting the pressure.
How do I check the transmission fluid level in my Ssangyong Actyon?
To check the transmission fluid level in your Ssangyong Actyon, ensure the vehicle is on a level surface and the engine is at operating temperature. Locate the transmission dipstick, usually labeled and colored differently than other fluid dipsticks, and remove it. Wipe the dipstick clean, reinsert it fully, and then remove it again to observe the fluid level. The fluid level should be within the designated range indicated on the dipstick. If the level is low, add the recommended transmission fluid, as specified in the owner's manual, through the dipstick tube.
How do I jump-start my Ssangyong Actyon?
If your Ssangyong Actyon's battery is dead and requires a jump-start, first ensure that the assisting vehicle has a fully charged battery and is turned off. Identify the positive and negative terminals on both vehicles' batteries, ensuring they are clean and free from corrosion. Connect one end of the positive (red) jumper cable to the positive terminal of the dead battery, then connect the other end to the positive terminal of the assisting vehicle's battery. Connect one end of the negative (black) jumper cable to the negative terminal of the assisting vehicle's battery, and then connect the other end to a grounded metal surface on your Actyon, away from the battery. Start the assisting vehicle, and after a few minutes, try starting your Actyon. Once started, let both vehicles run for a few minutes before disconnecting the jumper cables in reverse order.

To replace a burnt-out headlight on your Ssangyong Actyon, locate the headlight assembly at the front of the vehicle. Depending on the Actyon model, you may need to remove a cover or access panel to reach the headlight bulb. Once accessible, disconnect the electrical connector from the back of the bulb, remove the retaining clip, and carefully remove the old bulb. Install the new bulb, secure it with the retaining clip, and reconnect the electrical connector. Test the headlight to ensure proper functionality before reassembling any covers or panels.
