#106 of 137 Check Engine light just came on
Oct 22, 2010 (10:22 am)
I have a 1997 Isuzu Rodeo, it has been a great car. The check engine light just popped on and I don't want to take it into the auto shop just for them to tell me a bunch of stuff is wrong. Car still runs great, the light popped on yesterday. Any ideas on what it could be? I have about a 600 mile round trip coming up pretty soon...want to find out before i go on it.

Turned out to be my Ignition Switch causing the Check Trans and Curise Set coming on. They found the problem by turning my key slightly forward. Only took 5 weeks and $489...

Best to have trany fluid on a rodeo checked by machanic that has a temp gage for testing. Manual calls for 350f degrees . Most parts houses have a pump that will screw onto a quart bottle, mime calls for about 4 quarts. Good luck.
#113 of 137 NEED HELP WITH CHECK ENGINE AND FUEL LIGHTS
Apr 24, 2011 (4:05 am)
Hello, I bought a 2001 Rodeo last year and had a brand-new engine put in. It runs great, no problem there-However, every time the car turns a corner or there is a curve or hill in the road, the fuel sensor light starts blinking-(indicating it is low on fuel)and then it sets off the "Check Engine" light (even when I have just filled the tank!) I read in the owner's manual that this is correct for this vehicle-but it drives me crazy and I want to disconnect the fuel light so that the "Check engine" light will stop coming on all the time. The previous owner did not even know that there was an engine problem because the "Check Engine" light kept coming on all the time and kept having mechanics look at it-and they all said it was normal for this car. So when I bought it, it needed a new engine. I cannot trust the lights to tell me if there IS something wrong, because the darned lights are always coming on! PLEASE, someone tell me how to disconnect the fuel light so that it won't trigger the "Check Engine" light anymore. I am starting to hate this car because of this problem. Thank You!

Kim, 'Check Engine' light could come indirectly from several bugs. One thing I discovered with my 2000 Rodeo was caused by the gas cap, often forgotten to be closed properly - do three full turns or three clicks every time you replace the cap. If bug persists, check the cap gasket if worn out and replace the cap. The gas tank needs proper venting and this is provided by the specified cap.
As for the fuel sensor light blinking every time you turn a corner or climb a hill -
this sounds indicative of a fault on the sensor float assembly: Mounting out of whack, sensor not working, or loose electrical connection. A trained mechanic will check electrical connections first and if are OK then replace the sensor assembly in the gas tank.

I have 2001 Rodeo, and have had this truck since 2003. Great vehicle if you properly maintain it. I also had the fuel light issue and the check engine light would come on while driving up and down roads with slopes. It started just like yours 4 years ago, I kind of ignored it, but it got to the the point that it stopped working all together. Your issue may be your Fuel sensor gage, which does not impact the operation of the vehicle but you could run out of gas if you don't know where your level is at. I took the vehicle to a dealerships for diagnostics test was giving a ridiculous price to replace the fuel sensor. I then took it to my own mechanic who fixed it for less that $400, which is mainly the cost of the part which was $280 + labour.
