I started by replacing the Igintion Coil. that took the O2 sensor code, and the 306 until I droved it for 10 min. then the ... Read More
I have a 1996 Isuzu Rodeo with the inline 4 cylinder. The owner claims that its an inline 6. I see, based on my research that this truck did not come with an inline 6. Please correct me if I am wrong so I remain on the right path. When the engine is running, we are getting white steam coming from the tailpipe. It does not smell like white smoke (a ... Read More

hi, my problem is the 96 rodeo i just got is being erratic.when i first crank it up it drives fine but there is a lot of exhaust fumes.once the engine warms up,it doesn't want to accelerate properly and occasionally wants to die.what could be the problem?

Then I was not satisfied so I took the alternator off and took it to have it check, An both times it show it was charging.The people at the auto store said I may have broke ... Read More
I'm considering buying a 1996 Rodeo LS 4WD from a local dealer. According to the ad, it only has 75,196 miles on it (!) but it also comes with a 3 month/4500 mile warranty. It looks great and so many of the other Isuzu Rodeo posts are so positive... The price at the dealer is $3,995, which is right up my alley. All things equal, should I go for it? I ... Read More
I have a question about the timing belt on my 1996 Honda Passport. The truck only has 120K on it, but I'm unsure if the previous owner ever replaced the timing belt. I'm almost sure that I'm going to do it in the very near future so that I know that it has been done. My question is that in the Haynes manual that I bought that covers the Honda Passport ...

My rodeo is having problems, it starts and as it is idling it sounds like it is struggling to get fuel or power. I also notice that the battery indication fluctuates when I press on the brake. When I put it in reverse it almost stalls out. I backed out of the driveway slightly then I put it in drive and it just started rolling back and the brakes wouldn't even ... Read More

I have a 1996 Isuzu Rodeo 4wd S that has an abs and brake dummy light issue. I start the car and everything is good and as soon as I start moving the abs and brake lights on the instrument panel come on simultaneously and stay on.

This is the second time this has happened. The first time after my husband drove the vehicle for a while keeping his left foot on the brake and the right foot on the gas when he came to a stop the car continued to run and after about 3 mile of this the problem corrected it self. Tonight after the vehicle started up fine, while driving home every time I went ... Read More
collinjeremy- You hit on the main thing already. The rig was well maintained by your friend. The 2.3/2.6's may be a bit underpowered- depending on what you are used to, but they are good isuzu engine. The weakest link for them is the cylinder head. They can crack on you. Always keep the cooling system top knotch, change the oil regularly & you'll get a lot of miles out of it. ... Read More
