check your gas cap. it should tell you t go past 3 clicks when tightening gas cap. failuer to do so will cause your check engine light to come on. it will suck in air sometimes stalling your vechicle too. check your cap. then everytime you get gas use the 3 click rule.

check gas cap if your engine light is on it might be your gas cap. if your go to tighten your gas cap you must go past 3 clicks when you close gas cap if not check engine light will come on and your car will suck up gas and can even stall your vechicle. check out the cap itself it will tell you on cap itself. hope this helps.

To check, change, or just fill the trans fluid you have to find the trans fluid tank under the truck. On the bottom of the pan there are 2 nuts. One is to drain, and one is to fill. You need a mechanics syringe in order to fill. If you take it to have your fluids changed ask them if they know how to change your tranny fluid. It is funny to watch them look for a dip stick after they tell you they changed all of your fluids. Anyways, if this wasn't helpful enough- sorry- but you can also google "how to change transmission fluid in Isuzu (and the make of you truck). and it tells you how to do it. That is where I found out.

the code indicates that you have a camshaft position sensor, low input. check the wires and make sure that there isn't a short, you might want to change the sensor just to be sure.
#91 of 137 Resolved the Check Engine Light with Gas Cap
Nov 26, 2009 (12:59 pm)
I read on gas cap to turn 3 clicks and since then my check engine light has not come on ever again. before that, it would come on here and there until I filled the gas tank. But I read about this 3 clicks and saw that also the attendant who pumped my gas did this and never had issue since.
#92 of 137 ABS Light Comes On and Off

Almost since I bought the car, my ABS light comes on and off.
I thought it was my breaks but have had them checked and no problem.
#93 of 137 Rear Lights Go Out When Brake Used
Nov 26, 2009 (1:02 pm)
My rear lights go out, all except the top light above the back window, whenever I step on the brake.
My car is still under warranty so hope this is covered. My electric car key is also not working, but that has been the case for almost 2 years.
This recent problem has just started. I have only 38,000 miles on my car, but had it shipped from hawaii to california recently.

well the key issue could just be a battery in the key that activates door lock and the like. take the key to a lock smith and he will replace the battery for you.
the other problem is best handled by a auto-electric shop or a dealership is sounds like you have a short in the wiring somewhere
#96 of 137 wiring harness problem- for inspection
Mar 31, 2010 (7:12 am)
I have a 2000 Rodeo that I had to put in a new engine. The motor is from a 2002 Rodeo. They used the wiring harness from the 2002 that has 2 speed sensors. The 2000 only has one. The check engine light stays one and it codes for the one sensor it doesn't have. Does anyone know how I can get the check engine off or bypass the other speed sensor? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
