#373 of 385 1994 trooper 4x4 5 speed manual wont go into 1st or 3rd or 5th
May 09, 2012 (9:07 am)
I just changed the clutch last week and it drove OK for a few days. It will go into 2nd , 4th and reverse. The clutch is working fine because it will not roll on a hill when the clutch is engaged. I have removed the shift lever and the plastic peice on the bottom is OK. I tried to shift it into 1st 3rd or reverse with a screwdriver and it will not shift into those gears. Any Ideas?
#374 of 385 Rough Running 2000 Trooper codes p0300 and p0401
May 11, 2012 (10:47 am)
2000 Trooper with 177k miles. Car was running fine but needed new EGR. I had the EGR replaced, new plugs, and new valve cover gaskets. Now it is running poorly, mis-firing, especially under load. It first was displaying the p0401 code for insufficient EGR Flow, then a code for misfire in cylinder #1, and now is throwing the p0401 code and p0300 code for random/multiple misfires in all cylinders. The check engine light will occasionally start flashing, usually at freeway speeds. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Jacob.
#376 of 385 Over heating
Jun 19, 2012 (6:07 am)
I have a 96 trooper, it over heats at low speeds 20- 50mph, but if I go over 50mph, it won't overheat. Could some one tell me what gives?

I have a similar problem, which today might have gotten fixed. Is the noise coming from the rear end? A friend of mine is a Honda mechanic and he said that the Trooper needs a special non-slip additive to the rear differential gear box. It is standard for Isuzu Troopers. We added it and it appears to have stopped the noise. The additive costs about $15.00. Worth a try. Cheap fix if it stays fixed.

2 things to check first from the computer there is a bundle of wire with about 100 wires in it follow that bundle there is a bolt that hold things tight bolt comes loose and when u hit a bump it causes the computer to loose ground and the reduce power light to come on. silver box about 11 x 11 the computer that is drivers side by master cyl
NUMBER 2 The main cause if you have checked all sencors this is the ANSWER My 2004 rodeo reduce power lite came on once in awhile if i got out and taped on the throttle body and then started the engine it was good for awhile. what that did was jar the brushes on the throttle actuator motor. every time it came on i just got out and taped on the housing. What i did was remove the motor from the throttle body housing took the motor apart which was very easy where the brushes ride was all black. Took some sand paper cleaned very carefully till all the black was gone. Never came on again 3 years ago. They have a issue with this more than u think several people i told this to and they fixed there reduce power lite issue easy if it comes on try raising hood tapping on the throttle body housing opsite end from where the wire plugs in there is a electric motor in this housing. Then start light goes off do the above and clean
#380 of 385 My first Isuzu Trooper
Sep 08, 2012 (9:23 pm)
Recently got my first car. Its a 2000 Isuzu Trooper LS 2wd with 159k miles.
I bought it having CEL on, (has an exhaust leak and egr needs cleaning). Also, abs light is on, cuz brakes need changing, bad. When I bought it, it had close to no oil, but overall good condition.
It does make loud ticking do to the exhaust leak. I'm going to get oil change soon, should I use normail or Mobil 1 synthetic? Also, what weight? I didnt get a manual with it.
I got it for $1600...a bargain. Also, whats a good tuneup to do on it?
I'm 18 and I like cars but need to learn more
about them. Dont know a lot yet, just the basics. Also, would it hurt to drive it with
Cel ad abs light on for a couple months? Or does egr cleankng and exhaust leak need fixing asap?
I'm looking to carry this trooper well over 200k miles, I hope it serves me
