Just bought a 2000 Isuzu Trooper with 43,000 miles on it. Drives excellent. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&cate- gory=6269&item=2476619312&rd=1
Saw it on Ebay, just so happend that this truck was on my way home. Clean as can be! Can't wait to take it off road. I came out of a lease; 2000 Mitsubishi Montero XLS. Didn't like it too much though... Absolutely zero power! The Trooper has been maintained exceptionaly well. The horse power is definitely a plus. Handles great and no pulling to any side.
PS: Sean, when are we going off-roading? How about 3 weeks from now?
#9663 of 11966 How to replace Spark Plugs ...
May 10, 2004 (6:02 am)
In the Trooper, are the spark plugs under the black square coils? Is it simply a matter to unscrew the coils and find the spark plugs underneath?

I ruined at least 1 of the $75 wires when I tried to pull them off, then decided I'd just let the dealer do it, worth every penny.

How did you ruin the wires?
May 10, 2004 (8:27 am)
I ruined one wire $75 because it wouldn't come off the plug and when I twisted it it tore the boot. Decided that the $150 to have the dealer do it was worth it cause at my luck I'd ruin more than 2 boots costing $150 and still not have the plugs done!

any luck with improved mileage. I am getting 11 MPG around town on a good day. (that is using the larger tire calculation also).
#9668 of 11966 1995 Keyless Remote Programming Instructions
May 11, 2004 (12:23 am)
I purchased a new keyless remote and the dealer closed before I could get my remote programmed.
I am not having any luck finding any instructions for the 1995 trooper.
Thanks in advance.

IMHO there is something terribly wrong to cause that. Are you sitting at lights more than moving? Are you a real lead foot (brakes go bad quickly also)? Is the town all steap hills and you carry a heavy load all the time? Have you got a trailer on it?
Is there a poor alignment causing much more than normal friction? Is the tire pressure too low? Try parking on level ground, put it in neutral and push it by yourself, do this also with another higher mpg Trooper. If there is no problem pushing it manually maybe the problem is in the engine or transmission. Is your air filter stopped up? Or air flow sensor giving a signal like there's lots more air than you have so the computer adds more fuel? Are your exhausts freely moving?

That's about what I get around town.
#9671 of 11966 Weird thing happened
May 11, 2004 (12:19 pm)
I had some exhaust flutter on saturday when towing up to Pocono for the HPDE. So I figure I'll check it when I get a chance. Well yesterday the exahust pipe on the left side became disconnected from the manifold! It was sitting on the cross member.
Not bad timing though, I dropped it off at a local shop to get it taken care of and at the same time I'll get my shocks and springs put in
Anyone know if the tight coils go on the top or bottom of the coil springs?
