#1841 of 2315 1999 honda passport multiple problems
Dec 06, 2005 (2:52 pm)
I own a 1999 honda passport. A list of problems include: 1)Replacing a head gasket (under warranty) when the car would idle real low when stopping. 2)Gas gauge not working. Even when tank is full, the gauge reads empty and the fuel light flashes (which is a great theft deterrent because a thief will not steal a car that is out of gas!!) Anyone know how much this is to fix?? 3)Also, check engine light is on. I went to AutoZone and they did a free diagnostic and said the EGR is setting off the check engine light. Part is $175.00 I tried cleaning today so we'll see what happens. 4) I checked the oil yesterday and was surprised I didn't have a reading. I added 2 quarts and still didn't register a reading. I added another half quart and still was low. I took the car in today for a new oil change (I was 2 and a half months from my previous oil change, I always change every 3 months or 3000 miles) I don't have any puddles of oil in my garage nor do I emit excessive smoke. What could it be?? 5) My blower for my air conditioner quit working and at the same time, my car would shift real rough when shifting into second or third gear (I have an automatic) When I replaced the 15 amp fuse the rough shifting quit. I had this problem on two occasions back in 2002. I have not had any problems since. I bought the SUV new in Sept of 1999 and have 98000 miles on it. 6) The ABS light goes on and off intermittantly. 7)The four wheel drive didn't work. The dealer took apart the mechanism and cleaned it and put it back together in 2003. New part was $535.00. I decided to roll the dice and leave the old one in. It has worked fine. Any suggestions?? I am too cheap to take it in to the dealership because they charge so much money just to look at it.

Put vehicle on lift, in gear,in 4wd, and hear clicking in front left hub. Are auto hubs working on electronics or vacuum, or is the actuators the cause

We had same problem with our 2001 Isuzu. Had mech. replace fuel filter kit, not whole fuel pump. Got it off ebay for about 15.00 cost 128 to have put in though. Also, she was reading low oil but was also smoking. Had mech put high grade oil in and he is checking for next couple of weeks, so far so good.

Good morning everyone. I am the happy owner of a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo Sport. Bought new in 2000 it now has about 107,000 miles. It still runs strong (due for tune up and radiator flush tho). What is the story on the timing belts for this model? The manual says every 60,000 miles for change out. Can somebody please explain what non-interference means in regards to the timing belt ? Thanx and have an awesome day.

did you get any help on your sifter issue? I have developed the same thing within the last two days and noticed your post on the board. This comes on the heels of having the ignition key stick in the ignition switch for threee or four days then suddenly decide to come free and all works fine now. Let me know if you have any hints on what is causing the problem.

hello to all.... having some serious problems with this rodeo. Until yesterday the only problems i have had with this rodeo are the common fuel gauge problem and the check engine light for the gas cap.Had an ice storm thursday night and had to work fri. put the veichle in 4wd to get onto the main road and put in 2wd to drive to work. started shifting funny. when i left work put it in drive and it would not move at first but then studdered really hard jerked then went into gear but slipped really bad between gears. had the fluids checked and all is good. will hardly pull in first studders really hard when taking off after gaining speed it goes ok but shifts funny then every time i stop it studders hard when taking off. dealer said the tranny needs to be replaced but the veichle has never pulled any trailer no hitch and has only used 4wd twice this year. only 72000 miles and tranny costs 5500 doller not including install ouch! any help or info advice greatly appreciated
