#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

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?
#12 of 13 94 Rodeo issues

I bought this 94 Rodeo for a good deal from some people i know . They said the fuel pump went out . Well it was the wires going to it had rusted & burned off the tank . So there was no power to the pump . (Sending unit was rotted $$$)
So after putting way more work into it then i had planned . Got it running but it's not right . Start it up , drive 2 block's away & it acts like its not getting fuel. Starts popping through the intake when u try to give it gas. If you turn key off & restart it , its good for another block or 2 .
What might b the cause of this ??? Any help is greatly appreciated !!!

my passport will start then run for about 5 min then die. let it sit for a few and repeat. one person suggested to check all the grounds so i did that. and still no fix.
my next option is that i am going to check the fuel pump wireing because when the car is on pressure is good(had it tested). but after it starts it dies.
another problem i had was that the battery gauge always flukuates with the gas pedal.u give more gas it goes down u let off the gas it goes back up.
