YUP! That's what was happening to me. It would run fine for even days at a time, then suddenly die on me at a stop sign or a red light. Check it out this weekend, it could really save you a lot of time and money.

thanks for all your help. Got a friend of mine, a mechanic on the way over today to check the IAC motor. Where is it located?? What tools do I need to remove it?

It's off the throttle body, it has 3 screws that you need to unscrew to get it off, so you'll need a screwdriver. LOL. That's it! Sorry if I'm answering you way late, it's the first time I've logged onto my computer today.

Thanks. We got it off and replaced with a new one. However, ist still will not crank. Any ideas on the next step. We think we are going to buy a fuel pressure regulator tommorrow and try that.

Fuel filter perhaps? Fuel pressure comes in at 40-42 psi. But despite that could replacing the fuel filter help?

have you replaced the IAC (idle air control valve) which is located on the throttle body. If you don't know how this part looks like just ">google in image mood isuzu rodeo idle air control valve.

Yes. Replaced the IAC Motor today, and no change. We cleaned the carbon away and put the new one in, but it still wouldnt start. Going to change fuel fitler tommorrow then the O2 sensor. How does that sound?

I'm sorry, I thought for sure it was the IAC. after that, I have no clue where to go from there. But, will you let me know what does work, just in case this comes up with mine again? It's always nice to know where to start looking for the fix. LOL. Good luck to you.
