#82 of 102 Rodeo Sputtering. possible fuel problem
Mar 29, 2011 (3:25 pm)
Hi. Just recently my 1995 Rodeo 4WD has started to sputter pretty bad while trying to get up to speed. I changed the plugs/wires, air filter, and fuel filter, but still no change. It seems to happen the worst right around 45 mph. There is a big hole in the exhaust... don't know if that would contribute or not, but please any help would be appreciated.

Having the same issue with 96 Rodeo, 4cyl 2wd. We have tried almost everything including taking it to a transmission shop to see if that could be the issue. They thought that it might be electrical but couldn't find anything, we even changed the computer and everything but the Cadillac converter, PCV valve, and last thing fuel pressure regulator. Have you had any luck finding a solution?

I have the exact same problem with my '94 Rodeo, 3.2L 2WD Auto. I have done everything that Ben had mentioned + I changed the O2 sensor, which DID help a little bit. Also, you may want to disconnect both battery leads and leave them off for 10 minutes, then reconnect. Sometimes that will reset the computer. Both seemed to help, but only a little. It is still sputtering, just not as bad. Not much help, I know... But take it for what it's worth.
#85 of 102 92 Isuzu Rodeo Intermittently will not start
May 09, 2011 (12:27 pm)
I have read all of the messages in this forum, and I may have a bad IAC from what I have read. I just bought this Rodeo 4X4 w/V-6. All lights work, and it seems to be getting fuel, but sometimes, hit-and-miss it won't start. At idle it also runs rough (intermittently) as well. It first happened to my wife when she started to take it to get inspected. I came home from work and it started right up. I tried starting it every few days with no problems. I let my step-son use it while his car was in the shop, and yesterday he calls me saying the Rodeo will not start. I drove across town and turned it over. It turns over fine, but acts like it's not getting fire. I pulled the plug wire from the coil pack going to the distributor cap center plug, and just set it next to the coil pack. Had my wife turn it over, and it cranked right up. Coincidence? It still is idling rough, but so far it is starting and running. This weekend I'm going to dig deeper into the problem but I am hoping someone on here may have had this problem with their Rodeo and can steer me in the right direction. I'm a shade-tree mechanic so I know my way around vehicle mechanics, but I don't know much about the foreign cars. Any advice will be appreciated!
#87 of 102 Running rough after changing IMG
May 15, 2011 (3:57 pm)
I just completed changing the Intake Manifold Gaskets, and now it's running like the timing is off... Shuttering/choppy acceleration etc. It seems to have curbed the idle issue, but it's missing somewhere or something. I dont have acccess to the CEL reader until tomorrow. Any ideas?

...nevermind, this was a loose cable to one of the spark plugs.
IMG replacement and cleaning and it's running like a new truck. It has a little desire to stall when I put it in Park, maybe the EGR valve. I hope this doubles or close to, my fuel mileage, was only getting 200 miles to a tank.
#89 of 102 Engine shut-down
Aug 15, 2011 (10:21 am)
I have a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo. Love the vehicle, but the engine has begun to shut down (no sputtering) at random speeds or idling. The dashboard code is: cruise control/check transmition. I've taken it to three mechanics, none of whom could find the problem (the computer apparently is wiping the codes when the engine shuts down.) Transmission has been changed with no effect to the problem.
Anyone had the same issue? Any advice?
