Question about 1997 Isuzu Hombre

1 Answer

97 isuzu has lack of power

I have a 97 isuzu, 85000 miles, bought it at 72000 miles. I do know the catalytic converter does need to be replaced, so that is most likely a huge cause for the lack of power, but is there anything else that can be the cause of this? im a poor college student and am looking to make this truck last another two years. The transmission is also very slow to shift. could i maybe have something internal that can be replaced reasonably without replacing whole engine.

You'll need to take it to a shop for a diagnosis before you waste any more money.
One possible cause is the fuel injectors or the fuel pressure regulator.

Engine power reduced


The Catalytic Converter maybe clogged, I have a 2001 3800 Engine that just had the intake Manifold gasket changed 80,000 miles and three days later the car has issue with power due to antifreeze clogging the converter. Changing converter now, Dealer checked it and found the converter after I looked at it for three days to find nothing with the engine.

Using to much fuel also not having the revs to get through the gears, , lack of power, no acceleration


It sound like a clogged catalytic converter. It chokes the engine with exhaust gasses. How many miles on the car? There is a test that shops can do to check- they will drill a small hole before and after the catalytic converter and have a small device to measure its flow.

My 95 Izusu Rodeo v6 3.2L has a lack of power and hesetates upon accelleration. There is no check engine light what should I check?


Could be that the catalytic converter is stopped up or the timing belt or chain needs to be replaced. When is the last time it was tuned up? May need plugs wire etc. Fuel pump may also be going out get a pressure gauge or have it checked for fuel pressure
