95 Isuzu Rodeo fuel issue

I have a 95 Rodeo and it feels like a fuel issue, it starts to sputter and it hesitates alot and backfires, unless I step on the accelorater enough to downshift but then when I do the car will go but than the whole car starts to shake. I have already replaced the fuel filter, plugs and wires, air filter, cleaned the intake manifold and used just about every injector cleaner knowen to man. Do you have any idea what the problem could be?

If it sounds different when you are trying to start it, as far as the way it use to sound before it actually started. It could be your timing belt or chain.

My 1999 isuzu rodeo ran out of gas and now it won't start even with 4 gallons of gas. It cranks, the lights don't dim, but it does not even sputter or anything.

Many times when the tank is empty, the fuel pump draws the sediment up into the fuel strainer that is there to protect the pump.

This can clog or plug the strainer so much that it prevents fuel from being pulled up into the fuel pump.

The fuel pump can be damaged by the debris that is pulled up, causing it to fail.

I suggest a pressure test. You can spray a small amount of wd40 or carb cleaner into the intake while being careful, if the vehicle tries to run, then more than likely it is your fuel pump.

Be careful for backfires, you are spraying a flamable product into the intake and any timing problems could cause sparking to create a backfire. Just stand to one side and be careful.

good luck

I would start with getting the right firing order you can look up the spec online at autzone on there site they always have diagrams than start by checking and making sure that your getting fuel either a clogged fuel filter or a bad fuel pump that is starting to go bad. Make sure you only have 1 fuel pump some cars have 2 if you have to chances are the one inside the gas tank is the one that 99% of time goes bad but check both for fuel coming out of them to be sure. To me it sounds like your ignition componenets need to be checked and make sure your confident on your firing order than start diagnosing .
