#2218 of 2303 Steering tight
Apr 10, 2009 (6:43 am)
Hi I have a 1999 Isuzu Rodeo and been experiencing problems with steering. The wheel, does not return to the straight position after turning. The steering is tight when turning and will not return. Almost feel like no power steering or rack and pinion. Took to a mechanic but they cant find out what the problem is. Problem does not happen all the time but is occurring more frequently. Tight Steering/turning. Thanks. Can anybody help!?
#2219 of 2303 isuzu rodeo smog check
Apr 13, 2009 (11:45 pm)
Hum I went to smog my 1991 Isuzu Rodeo a week ago, and the truck passed the emissions part of the " test only" smog. But when the man came to take a visual of the smog system, he said ohhhhhhh nooooooooo, you took your smog pump off. I said i don;t even know what the hell it looks like much less took it off, Now remember the truck passes the emissions test, He tells me that my truck is suppose to have a smog pump on it. and mine does not. It is a 1991 3.2 L6C and it comes in to play that his smog manual says I should have a pump, Well guess what I dont, and he was looking at the 3,1 motor not the 3.2 because it is not in the smog manual. so guess what i have to go to the referee and have the state referee do the smog. SO i go to the ref and guess what he tells me One book says it has a smog pump and one book says it does not have one Oh joy now what NO SMOG CERTIFICATE IF YOU WANT TO KNOW AND SINCE THE TRUCK DID NOT FAIL SMOG DMV WILL NOT GIVE ME A TEMP OPERATING PERMIT SO MY TRUCK SITS THERE WITH OUT REG AND GONNA GET TOWED BECAUSE THESE PEOPLE CANT FIGURE OUT WHAT SHOULD AND SHOULD NOT BE ON MY TRUCK ANYONE GOT ANY IDEAS FOR ME?????CHRIS THANKS
#2220 of 2303 Bad Ticking And knocking
Apr 15, 2009 (6:45 am)
I posted this on another forum, because some guys were having the same problem, but I never got a answer. So I am posting it here.
I have a 1993 Isuzu Rodeo 3.2 I just changed the timing belt idler pulley and the tension pulley, it went great for about 3 weeks then about 4 days ago got this sound like the ones in those videos on page one. The thing already had tapping, but this extra noise is more than I can bear. It still has great power it has not lost a step, when it comes to power,I really hate to have to break this thing down again. But it does sound like those videos, I wonder if they could have sold me a faulty tension pulley and arm. It has 173.000 miles on it and the body is still clean it is not banged up at all, and I really like this SUV. So who knows what it could be, I think it has something to do with the timing belt system, then again I could be wrong. But it does sound like those videos. And as for the tapping the owner before me did not take great care in oil management. I knew I should have changed that spring loaded tensioner. That is the part you all are talking about aren't you ? And it is not the crank, knocking. And when I accelerate to enough rpm's it goes away, but at a traffic light you can really hear it.

my engine has been racing on 2rpm and earlier i got a tip to disconnect the battery erasing the computer. this worked for awhile but the problems has come back. all else seems to be working well but it still races so much i must press hard on the brakes when at a stop.
#2222 of 2303 Re: Truck very hesitant to move when in reverse [marleyfan]
May 04, 2009 (7:38 am)
I was wondering if you ever found out what the problem was with your son's rodeo? Mine started with trottle position sensor problems, and after fixing that 1st gear started to hesitate before it would engage, then 2nd gear did the same thing, now I have lost reverse also. I am getting ready to put in the shop, but would rather know what to expect cost wise before I do. Very upset with this truck- I've only had it for 2 months.
#2223 of 2303 My 1999 Honda Passport Cuts Off When Driving or stopping
May 07, 2009 (11:04 pm)
I'm having problems with my 1999 Honda passport. I drive my car alot in one day and when I'm going from place to place and having to keep starting and turning off my car it starts to give me a problem. I'll start my car fine and then it will just cut off. The check trans light comes on for just a sec the goes off. I'll have to press the gas and turn the car on to get it to stay on. Sometimes when I get to a stop light it will turn off also, or the car will just rev for a while untill I press the gas or it will turn off again. I can't find anyone who knows whats wrong with my car. Is anyone else having the same problem?
Also, like everyone else my gas light is always on, even if i have a full tank. Has anyone had theres fixed yet? What;s the problem, how much does it cost if it's worth fixing. I can live with the problem I count miles pretty well. LOL Any help thank you!

#2225 of 2303 1992 Isuzu Rodeo Won't Start
May 11, 2009 (3:36 pm)
I have a 1992 Isuzu Rodeo 3.1L V6 and frequently I will get in and try to start it with no luck. It will turn over just fine, all dash lights, radio etc work, yet it wont start. I have cleaned all the fuses and their contacts, the battery is fairly new and I have just put in a new starter. After about thirty minutes or so, the car will start and run perfectly. I have tried and tried to fix this problem but it keeps reoccurring. Also when not starting, if I roll and pop the clutch, it starts fine.

Don't know anything about what a 'regulator' is, but I do know that when I had one of the windows on mine checked, it wouldn't roll down, you had to replace the whole system for all four windows, on my Explorer, each window had it's own 'system', much less expensive than replacing the 'whole' system... hope it helps...
