First of all it could be one of two problems... Have the idle air control module checked and possibly replaced. These seem to go bad pretty quickly with not much warning. Will definitely cause more issues if not fixed. Secondly... Have the transmission checked out. If you go to AAMCO they will do a free diagnostic internal and external trans check. It turned out that mine had a SERVO GASKET COVER leak. This is not an expensive part. Do not let AAMCO put the part on for you either. They tried to charge me $800 for parts and labor. Call Isuzu- part plus labor = $200. If you call around with that quote, more than likely you will find a shop that is gonna match the price. Good luck.

I have a 2002 Rodeo. I was having problems with what I thought was the transmission slipping. Would rev up to high rpms all of a sudden when turning right or taking off. I took mine to Aamco for their free trans scan, turned out to be the servo cover as well.....I had them fix it and they only charged me to $125....way off from $800 dmiah LoL. Anyway they also changed my driving belt, total bill was $304.00. Drives fantastic now.

i have a 97 Honda passport witch has the same 3.2 motor in it. my truck does the same thing. i think that it could be the ignition control module. i have been told that you have to go to a dealer to get one.

For a week now every morning I have to crank my car 3 times before it would start. I'd like to know what is my car trying to tell me? My son thinks it's the fuel pump.

Thanks but did you get it and did it solve the problem? Was the part expensive, and who installed it for you?
#9 of 13 99 RODEO RANDOM MISSFIRE
May 22, 2011 (5:12 am)
I HADE ABOUT 12 DIFFERENT CODES SHOWING UP DOWN TO THE RANDOM MISSFIRE. CLUELESS

I would start with replacing the intake gasket that was poorly designed using bakilite spacer sandwiched between two intake gaskets. Over torguing the intake bolts can crack the spacer allowing a bypass intake air to enter on its side and leaning out the fuel trim causing a misfire. A lot of hard starts, stalling at idle, lean codes, and do not start can be caused by this single item.
#11 of 13 1996 Isuzu rodeo code 306
Sep 11, 2013 (8:52 am)
this rodeo had the head gaskets done. It was overheating, when it came from the shop, I replaced spark plugs thermostat hoses and it ran well. a month later, started coming out with a code 306, cylinder # 6 misfire, and O2 sensor bank too rich. I started by replacing the Igintion Coil. that took the O2 sensor code, and the 306 until I droved it for 10 min. then the code 306 came back. replaced spark plugs, code still was there, then I checked compression, 150 lbs. erased the code and was out again for 10 min. I also feel the misfire under load. It came back too when I droved through a hill. could this be caused by a vacuum leak somewhere? or a misadjusted valve?
