Question about 1998 Isuzu Rodeo
My car feels like it is falling on its face when i try to accelerate at part throttle. it will also do it when i am at a cruising speed. it will clear up if i go full throttle spitting and sputtering a little. it has completely shut off a couple of times. i have done a complete tuneup recently but that has not helped. had a bad alternator last year and replaced both alternator and battery
Internal combustion engines requires 3 things... fuel, air, and spark. You do not have enough of one or more of these. If the wires and plugs are old, change them. Air filter, same thing. Fuel filter can also clog up with stuff after awhile. When you take a look at the air filter check where the air comes from. It is possible a little critter has built a home and blocked the air flow (rare, but, it has happened).

Have you hooked this up to an OBD11 reader yet ?
May be a bad crank, cam or knock sensor. Cars today are loaded with sensors.
If you don't read the codes you will be chasing the rabbit down the hole. ;-)
Hope this helps
