#2114 of 2303 Re: 2000 Isuzu Rodeo - Eating Engine Oil [aramos08]
Oct 01, 2007 (12:30 pm)
I bought a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo about 3 weeks ago. After going not even 2500 miles, it has gone through all the oil, the oil light didn't come on and the engine locked up. Now I have to replace it. Does anyone have any suggestions as to the engine to replace it with. I think the same engine was put into other vehicles such as the Honda Passport, and they could be switched. Can anyone offer any info?

I am having the same problem w/my 2000 rodeo ls. I have talked to the dealership and they informed me that there is a Timing Update for the cars computer (2000-2001) and that they needed to erase the timing specs and reprogram the computer. They said that it might help with the us of high octane gas, spark knocking and hessitaion problems but they are not sure. As far as the thumping feeling I am having that same problem and my mech. have not found out what it is.
Oh yeah I forgot when you have your next tune up get the mech. to clean the combustion chamber and intake along with cleaning the pcv valve and relacing it. Also try getting the fuel system cleaned I think its like $110.00 at Firestone or $150.00 at the dealer My Mech said that that may help also. I am planning on getting these things done but I had to change the Timing Belt, Water Pump and some other thing yesterday so I am strapped for cash. But if I get it done first I will let you know how it goes. Also try buying Chevron gas the dealer said that they have the highest AKI(Anti-Knock Index) which is best for this car.

#2117 of 2303 transmission problem
Nov 12, 2007 (10:04 am)
I have a 2002 Rodeo 4x4 with a v6 engine. When I get on the interstate and go above 70mph, the transmission shifts real hard, then the check transmission light starts flashing and every gear shifts hard. however, if i turn the vehicle off for about 5 min, it will quit doing it! Also, when I let off the gas at highway speeds, the Engine RPM's fall completely off and when I push on the gas pedal again, it takes it a minute to catch up to how fast the car is going......can anyone help?
#2118 of 2303 '95 Isuzu Rodeo problem
Nov 20, 2007 (6:56 am)
I made a stop before reaching home last night and when I started the Rodeo, the gas light, battery light and brake light stayed on. I tried restarting several times to see if they would just go off. I went on home no problem with all the lights on. Left for work this morning same thing but notice that the charging was below 12v and sometimes around 8v; also the heater blower would not come on. (Everything else seem to work) I got to work and check fuses and pull battery cable off a couple of times. No luck! Help please!!

#2120 of 2303 Electrical Problem on 1995 Honda Passport
Nov 25, 2007 (12:25 pm)
This is the same as a Rodeo.
My brake, fuel (gas) and battery lights are on, and the air conditioner / heater / fan won't work. My voltmeter shows 14 v and I had my alternator replaced (before it was showing only 10 v, which is why I had the alternator replaced). When I pull the charging relay, everything works fine. I replaced the relay with a new one, and all of the problems return.

#2123 of 2303 Left Wheel Squeak / CV Boot replacement
Nov 27, 2007 (7:37 am)
1997 Rodeo 3.2 4WD 100K Location: Cordoba, Argentina
1. I have squeak from the left front tire area that increases with velocity. I am wondering if it could be related to the two torn CV Boots on that side.
2. How important is it to replace the CV Boots? While my truck was still state-side, a mechanic just packed the joints with grease. I had told him that I did not go into 4WD much. Down here I do more often.
BTW - My truck is unique here though I have seen an occasional Passport of the same model year. And there are lots of Isuzu pick-ups and truck cabs on the roads.
