Every now and then for the last two weeks I will be driving and my car will stall out, so I put it in neutral start it and its fine. But as of recently the stalling was becoming more frequent. I got in the car to go take it to my Dad to have him look at it and it started fine but when I tried to put it in gear it would stall out. I waited a little while tried it again and the same thing. Any ideas?
Troopergal is probably right. It does sound like an electrical problem. However with an electrical problem it normally won't always start again right away. Another possibility is you have a clogged fuel filter. This is an easy one to fix. They are small in line placic filters in the fuel line and are easy to replace. They only cost a couple of dollars and are available at any spares shop.

Try neutral start switch. Use shop manual to determine its location on an automatic vehicle. If vehicle is a stick its attached to clutch pedal via lever. To test it remove it from its connectors and make a jumper wire and jump the circuit if car starts you found your culprit.
It would usually start when completely cold, but idle around 2k RPM. It would drive fine. But if I shut it down, ran into a store, and came back out, it would start but immediately idle. Had to ride the gas a little to get it into gear. The Check Engine light has been going on and off for 6 months or so.
I took this to my local trusted repair shop (no Isuzu dealers within 200 miles). The diagnosed the light, and found that the Intake Gaskets were bad or leaking. The idling problem was related to the car not being able to control the amount of air coming in.
They replaced the Intake gaskets by the next day, and I haven't had a problem since. And no more check engine light, which has been on half a year.
Here's some details from my bill: (1) Intake Gasket set $107.95 Misc materials $21.00 2.1 hours of Labor
The total cost to me was $345.00, and I definately don't feel gipped.
you are not going to find a dip stick in your trooper you shuold go down to the tranmission pan and look for drain bolt there is the place were you are going to check the tranmission oil first you have to turn on your engine an then shift neutral and take off the drain bolt dont worry the oil is not goin to drip out and you must have an special gage that you have to put there and base on the transmision temperature it will tell you if it need oil or not i hope i you undertend me my english is not to good
