Just got off the phone with Isuzu customer support. They say that even though my VIN is within the VIN range, that the production date for the recall was through January of 1995, and my vehicle was mfg'd in July of '95, and is thus not covered. If it wouldn't be too much trouble for you to post the cable part pic, I'd really appreciate it.
Thanks again for your help!

Really sorry to hear Isuzu would not help you. I have posted two diagrams of the cable and adjustment procedure. The link to the pics are: http://www.carspace.com/atfdmike/.59a212fb
To adjust to factory specs, do the following after you complete repairs, refer to diagram showing cable adjusting nuts and:
Loosen adjusting nut.
Lock throttle valve fully closed and pull outer cable.
Adjust nut "B" so that clearance is as shown.
Push nut "B" against bracket and tighten nut "A" to lock cable.
I hope this information helps you. You may well need to spend quite some time to determine which part is binding and then fix it. It is too dangerous, as you know, not to do it right. Best of Luck!

Thanks for these! While I was at lunch today, I thought I'd poke around and see if I could figure out what was binding. At first, it seemed like something inside. There was kind of a hanging point before I could press the pedal all the way, then the pedal was held up on its return to the original position. I opened the hood and looked at where the throttle cable attaches. What I found was exactly what the Isuzu recall was for. The dust cover over the end of the throttle cable sheath had come loose and seemed to be partially melted. The inner cable was covered in sticky black stuff, which I assume is the rubber from the dust cover. I removed the dust cover until I can get a new one and cleaned the rubber off the cable. RPMs seem to be dropping properly now and there is no more binding in either direction.
Thanks again for your help!

Can't get my 97 trooper out of 4 wheel drive. My car sits for periods of time, and I corrected the problem once by spraying 4D-40 on the cable under, but it has frozen again. I don't need 4 wheel drive in FL. can this cable be disconnected easily?
Thanks for any advise

I had the same problem " run 3-5 seconds and quit" with my 89 2.6 fuel injected trooper, after toying with different things I saw online changed out the fuel pump 300+, fuel regulator 20 and the thought of changing out the ecu $$$, not to mention the countless hours of beating my head off the hood for buying this thing, :off a hunch: I pulled the fuel pump relay out. ( now hear me out ) pop the cover off the top of the relay, you will find a spring in there, carefully stretch the spring out a bit so the electromagnet doesn't have to pull as hard to keep the truck running. THAT IS ALL I DID AND I HAVE NOT HAD A PROBLEM KEEPING THE TRUCK RUNNING SINCE.... sounds retarded but with the computer problems on these trucks it's a very cheap fix

The weekend is upon us and I have not seen a response yet, so I will volunteer a couple of things that could be going on, but the 97 service manual does not show a cable for the shift lever to the transfer case. If you are shifting into 2High but the transfer case is staying in 4High, then the problem sounds like a transfer case problem. It could be the shift fork or shift lever is worn, or broken. If, however, you are shifting it into 2High and still seeing the four wheel drive light illuminated, but not actually driving in 4High but 2High, it could be the transfer case indicator switch at fault. Also, if you have the automatic hubs on your 97, then it is necessary to back up AT LEAST 3 revolutions of the tire (about 8 feet) OR more to get the auto hubs to unlock. If it is just the hubs failing to unlock, you could try backing up further distances and first warm up the hubs by driving around a while. Note that if the transfer case is not shifting into 2High you will never get the front hubs to remain unlocked. As soon as you drive forward, they will re-engage if they are seeing the front propeller shaft driving them as though it is in 4High.
This is a lot of info, but basically you have to be sure exactly what the 97 is doing. Can you tell by driving it if the transfer case is in 4High, ie: at a slow speed does the trupr kind of hop and struggle around tight corners on dry pavement which would indicate the transfer case and hubs are both in 4High and engaged? Also, you might try putting the 97 in to 4Low and driving it a little and then shifting to 2High to see if that solves the problem. While there are some differences between automatic trans and manual trans, the transfer case shifter appears to work the same. Also, manual and automatic hubs were available on the 97, and you do not indicate what you have. Be patient and methodical in analysing what you have and if you still cannot figure out what is going on, then maybe someone else here has experienced your problem and will have time to write. Good luck with it!

I had the same problem with it sticking in four wheel drive. I took it out of four wheel and then reversed it eight feet or so. Then drove forward. The auto hubs released. I also had a problem with the hose on top that said my four wheel was on when it wasn't. I have heard, if you use the four wheel drive for fifteem minutes or so in high and low once a month it will help keep it from sticking.

A Toyota Landcruiser $65K+ that I know of was not used in 4low for several years. Now the shift lever will not go to 4 low, and the owner cannot justify spending big bucks to let Toyota unstick it, so it is now only a 4hi full time 4wd Land Cruiser.
I make a point of using my Trooper's 4x4 modes once a month just as a regulat preventative maintenance.

What are the likely candidates for the cause of your problem?
What other maintenance or repair or symptoms have occured recently or in the last mements the engine actually was running? I nice summary will make it easier to get the collective brains reading this discussion engaged.
