You are in the Isuzu Rodeo
What is this discussion about?

I was trying to change the spark plugs and wires on my wife's 1998 Rodeo. When I pulled the plug boot, there was oil on it. It was on the other three boots as well. I have a misfire in cylinder 2. I put a new set of wires on but, the idle is still rough and it doesn't accelerate like all 4 cylinders are firing. Why is there oil in on the boots? Should I wait until I figure out the oil situation before putting in new plugs?
#66 of 137 2002 Isuzu Rodeo LSE 3.2L Check Engine Light

Good evening all,
I also have the check engine light on. I had it looked into, and I was told that it is due to a bad Oxygen Sensor. It's not going to cause the car to break down, but it is slightly damaging my gas mileage, and causing that check engine light to stay on.
Does anyone know if it is possible to clean the inside of the fog lights? I have some rusting due to water intrusion. I am getting ready to replace both lamps via a new assembly kit, but I am trying to avoid spending $150.

I had that problem too and the issue was a loose wire connecting the engine control modude to the crankshaft sensor switch. The engine control module does not sense where the crankshaft position is when the wire moves, and that causes things to go snaky, such as the transmission and cruise lights coming on. This issue took a good mechanic in Syracuse one and a half weeks to find. Total cost was $425.00,$395.00 for labour, and $.99 for the new wire. Good luck!

my check engine light has come on since about 4,000 miles. I find that when I fill up the tank it goes off or shortly after that. It seems to have a mind of its own.

my 2000 Rodeo has suddenly lost from about 20 plus around town, down to about 12 mpg . I only have 37,000 miles, original owner... no computer codes have been found. It started in March...

I have same thing. When I take to mechanic, they say no error codes have registered.
Usually when I fill the tank with gas the Check Engine Light goes out. and ABS, it just goes off for a long time, then comes back on for a few days.... I thought it was when I did alot of braking going downhill mostly, and that seems when it comes on more, but also just stays on after all that and am on flat land... :?? Car runs fine, except now I am starting to see very low gas mileage

MY 2001 HAS THE SAME CHECK ENGINE LIGHT AND FUEL GUAGE PROBLEM.
SAME THING THEY SAY THE FUEL SENDING UNIT NEEDS TO BE REPLACED.
TO GET MY CAR INSPECTED NOW. I HAVE TO FILL MY TANK, DRIVE IT FOR
A FEW SHORT TRIPS. THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT GOES OFF AND I GET IT
INSPECTED. I HAVE BEEN QUOTED ABOUT 5-600 FOR THE REPAIR.

I have a 1996 Isuzu Rodeo. None of the tail, instrument, back-up or front running lights work. I put a new fuse in the socket labled "Tail, Instruments" Still nothing. I have Brake, head and turn signal lights. There is 12V present on the fuse socket.
What else would be common with all these lights?
