Re: 1995 Isuzu Rodeo starting problem.
Hello first thing i would start with is check your idle screw it may be set to low if the choke linkage is sticking .first take your breather off so you can see the choke linkage look to see where the plate is positioned is it fully closed have somone try starting with out touching the gas pedal if it doesnt start slightly open the choke plate if it starts you need a choke adjustment check to see if its manuel linkage, vacuum operated,or electrical. if vacuum check lines for dry cracks or splits preventing choke operation if electrical you need to test the power wire at the choke also test for good ground if mechanical check adjustment screw for curb idle to see if its set to low.goodluck please rate

Check your Fuel Lines and your Fuel Pump. (I just fixed a problem with my 2001 Isuzu Rodeo Fuel Return Line).
Also remember that in Rodeos, as soon as you turn your car key to turn the ignition on (just to make the dashboard lights go on) a certain amount of gasoline gets pumped to your engine in preparation of you turning the key all the way to crank the ignition and start the car. In other words, even before you turn the key all the way to crank the ignition, the Fuel Pump will pump some gasoline through the Fuel Lines to your engine (it will pump the gasoline for about 4 seconds then stop). So when you go to start your Rodeo, remember to turn the key with one continuos motion so that you start the ignition cranking while the gasoline is being actively pumped.
In addition, you should never turn the ignition lights on without turning the key all the way to start the engine. Doing so could cause that bit of gasoline that was pumped to start the engine to just sit there and create problems.
you need to jump start your battery. The battery will need to be tested to see if it can hold a charge and supply enough amps to power your truck. Check for clean and tight connections to battery posts.
Yes. There is always a port on the fuel rail that can be opened and attached to a gauge to check pressure. Just open this up and turn the key on and off until it comes out. Then close it back up and it should be fine. The reason is air is too spongy to open the return valve.
But try not to run out of gas. It is very hard on the fuel pump, that actually relies on the gas for cooling and lubrication.
