#2182 of 2303 Determining transmission type
May 10, 2008 (12:48 pm)
I have a 1992 Isuzu Rodeo 4WD with the transfer case built into the transmission. There is a fill plug at the top of the transfer case, a drain plug at the bottom of the transfer case, and a level check plug midway up on the passenger side of the transmission. I need to know what model of transmission this is. Any suggestions as to how to figure this out? The model choices are MUA, MSG, BW, and W/V

There should be an identification plate just above the position switch on the driver's side.

Did you ever find out what this is? I have a 99 that just started to do this.

Check your Transmission range sensor. It is on the outside on drivers side. Can be cleaned out and rebuff the contacks bluebell2
#2188 of 2303 Blower motor and alternator
Oct 16, 2008 (9:17 am)
I have what seems to be a somewhat common problem on my 97 passport. I just replaced the head gaskets and went ahead and replaced the alternator (reman from Advance). There wasn't any problem with the alternator or blower motor before I did this work. Now the I don't have alternator output even though the alternator tests good. The blower fan will also not work unless I disconnect the alternator. Then it will work.
This seems to be fairly common problem on Isuzu/passports judging from the web post but no one seems to have the solution except for perhaps get a new alternator, not a rebuilt. I believe all was working fine when I first started the engine but i had a vacuum leak that I had to take the upper intake off to fix and now I can't get alternator output or the blower motor to work. The blower doesn't run because the relay does not close. As I understand the circuit the relay gets power through the battery indicator light and if the alternator grounds that wire as it should with the ignition on then there is no power to the relay coil.

Unfortunately Ducks, you need an original alternator at the cost of about $300.00. The voltage regulators inside the alternators on the remans are not configured the same as an original. Your blower motor is wired to this voltage regulator which is why it will not blow.
The alternator will in fact test normal out of the car but it will never work, as the voltage regulator is the problem. This is very common on Isuzu's and Passports as well. I went through 3 alternators until finally I took my Rodeo to an auto electric shop and found out what the problem was.
I don't thnk that there is any other way around it....so Good Luck!

I have a 99 rodeo and my check engine light stays on all the time and my gas guage is broking and my spark plugs act up and i have to change then every couple of 1000 miles. Mine burns water and oil, no leaking on ground, and now has begun to smoke white smoke only crank ups and idles. I also had the same problem as you, had clucht repalced and in the transmission the bearing rod that pushes into the tranmission was stuck. its suppost to go back and forth when u mash the clutch. cost a lot to fix. Labor clutch fluid lift lid should be right on top right abouve where clutch is on inside. Your clutch maybe the only thing that needs adjusting. Its easy to do need two people

Thanks Brown. I think I had come to that decision today. I got an alternator from NAPA today (two from Advance previously) and it made the blower work for about 15 minutes and then quit. Now if I disconnect the alternator and reconnect it it will work until I crank the engine or turn the fan speed up or something and then it will quit again. It still doesn't charge. The Isuzu dealer told me that a new alternator is $540. Did you get yours from a dealer or from the electric shop?
