#16 of 25 Clutch Problems on 1993 Trooper
Dec 03, 2007 (11:30 am)
My problem with the clutch started recently, went out one morning and the clutch pedal went to the floor and stayed there. Found a leak on the master cylinder where the push rod comes through the firewall, r&r the master cylinder, and bled the clutch. Everything seemed to work for two days, went out and again the clutch pedal stayed on the floor. Can't tell where the leak is or what is happening, have since bled the system two more times with the same results. Works for a day then poof, bleeds out. Any help out there?

I am not a professional, but generally, I would first check the electrical connectors . then the TOD sensors. One is mounted on Transfer case where front prop is attached, similar sensor on rear of case where rear prop attached. These connectors are exposed to weather, etc; and become corroded, so careful attention and cleaning with safe solvent is important. Be careful not to bend pins, and grease with dielectric grease ( when done) to help keep them weatherproof.
The TOD module is inside the vehicle, if memory serves it may be under pass. seat. Check that connectors are still fully inserted there too.
The TOD sensors are an expensive part, so it is not like you want to buy them and replace them until you are sure one or the other is the problem. You will really need a service manual if you get to the point where everything else has been tried.
this is most common place to start. Once done, you can try it and see if it helps.
Hopefully, someone else will chime in to help. I am sure if you do a forum search you will learn more about the system.

Your best bet for an OEM Isuzu manual may be Jerry at Jlemondbellsouth.net
He has lots of original parts and manuals, and I have bought many parts from him.
He is great to deal with. Just drop him an email telling him what you are looking for.

#23 of 25 1997 3.2 engine, is timing belt zero tolerance ?
Oct 23, 2008 (6:34 pm)
I was told that this engine's timing belt was "zero tolerance" and that meant it wouldn't tear everything else up if it broke. Trying to decide whether to change it or not, records indicate 70K since last changed

The 3.2 is a "non-interference" engine which means if the timing belt goes, there "should" be no damage to the valves or pistons. I think the timing belt interval was changed from 60,000 to 100,000 for your year. HTH. One guys opinion.
PS> There is another 3.2 Direct Injected engine that is an Interference engine, but I don't think it was available in 97.
#25 of 25 NEED CV AXLE BOOTS, NOT AXLES
Aug 10, 2012 (10:03 am)
REPLACEMENT OF AXLES + BOOTS REQUIRE 8+ HOURS OF LABOR, PLUS PARTS.. ALL I NEED ARE BOOTS !! THE CV JOINTS ARE TIGHT + THERE'S NO CLICKING/CLUNKING ON EITHER SIDE.. THERE IS GREASE IN THE CRACKED BOOTS SO IT'S STILL WORKING, BUT I KNOW WHAT DIRT, WATER, + FOREIGN MATERIALS CAN DO IF NOT ATTENDED TO..
BASICALLY, I WANT + NEED A SPLIT BOOT TO FIX THE PROBLEM, ONLY EVERY PLACE TELLS ME "THE BOOTS ONLY COME AS A SOLID PIECE THAT SLIDES OVER THE AXLE, + REQUIRES THE AXLE TO BE OFF THE VEHICLE TO BE REPLACED."
I KNOW THAT atfdmike SAID IN A REPLY THAT THEY DO MAKE A SPLIT BOOT THAT DOESN'T REQUIRE REMOVAL OF THE AXLE.. WHERE DO I FIND 4 OF THESE SO I CAN FIX THE TRUCK WITHOUT BREAKING MY WALLET ???
