1996 SsangYong Musso SE 2.9 from UK and Ireland
A good value 4x4
Vacuum idle system not compensating for load.
Leaking Rocker Cover Gasket.
My Musso has had a retro fit Turbo and Intercooler, the first mod any owner of a 2.9 Musso should make. It makes the car pull better than my old 1.8TD Mondeo. I still return about 25mpg around town and 34ish on runs.
The interior is bland, but functional, however, there are gadgets like speed sensitive intermittent wipe and air con.
Looks are odd, but for the price you can't grumble, for £5000 I have got a 4x4 that can tow two horses in a trailer no problem, for less than half the price of a Trooper.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

My husband has a Ssangyong Musso and we are having great difficulty in finding a dealership to supply a new selector arm for the transfer box, any ideas anyone?

Your suggestion of a retro fit turbo sounds ideal! Any hints and tips, or suggestions as to where I can source the parts to do it?

I just bought a 1996 musso. I'm just wondering if anybody knows were the idling is as it is idling very badly.

I have a problem with my Mussow 2.9 D.
It went out of gear, while I was driving.
And now it is stuck in 4x4 low ratio.
Anybody has any experience with this problem.
I guessed it might be a problem with the transfer box?
Can it be fixed, or do I have to replace the entire box.
If so, where could I find a second hand one? And for roughly how much?
Thank you very much
