Question about 1999 Isuzu Trooper

1 Answer

4JX1engine cut off and not starting

I have isuzu1998 3.0 bighorn with4JX1 engine. it was running perect when i wanted to get it serviced. my mechanic changed fuel filter and oil filter( only the longer bigger one was changed). while putting fuel filter some air might havr remained in the system as he pumped the filter after changing the filter but brether on top of filter was not opened. I put 5lt of castrol tection engine oil 15 W 40 as i couldnot find 10w 30 oil. i had to top up the oil as it was little less to upper level but the shops were closed. the car started nicely except that it made noise of vaccume like opening a coke bottle when engine was switched off and it made noise every time we swithed off. i overlooked that noise as i thought may be i have never noticed as i have never switched off when the bonnet was open.There was no other problems.it was nicely starting and raving. i drove for 2o minutes and it was running fine with good pick up. it had shown engine oil light for some time then it went off. after some 15minutes of driving i saw warning light for check engine. since but i had to reach back to mechanic so i continued driving. it was running perfecly but after 5minutes the engine went off very silently. after all this it never started. they have tried to pump fuel,open return line and pumped to get rid of air lock, checked fuse all fine engine was cranking nicely but not starting.
please advise as we in zambia and we lack proper backup.

thanks

Its the oil ! 15/40 is too thick it should be 5/30 or 10/30 fully synthetic .
The woosh noise is ok just the erg flap coming open .

Can an overheated transmision make the car to fail to start. my isuzu bighorn cant start


no,
run at full speed, yes, can fail
the engine must crank to start, (a/t cars only) and if cant crank it cant start.
so if it cranks,(old post) then next is spark
then try test fuel if spark is good on unstated engine
its not a diesel is it?

What do want to change the fuel filter for they never need changing here in europe as the fuel delivery pumps in the fuel stations have micronic filters inside the pumps ,europeon law so it shouldnt need changing unless it corrodes away that is if its a metal casing .Their is a gauze filter on the fuel pump inside the tank but if this motror runs ok leave well alone and stop playing around trying to a boy racer sunday mechanic job ,change the oil every 5/6000 miles with a oil filter every third oil change and use the cheapest diesel/petrol engine oil you buy ,gap the plugs every other oil change and it will run like a dream ,stick to putting a boom boom box in and stick go faster stripe and leave it alone

The fuel filter can be changed and the shaking can be from those mounts being blown. You can also try some fuel injector cleaner cause it could be clogging injectors. The other thing about the long crank time in cold weather could be from arching spark plug wires. Did you get those changed with the plugs? Replacing the fuel filter could help with that as well.

What parts do i need to buy for a tune up on a 2001 gmc yukon


For just a standard maintenance tune up you will want:
Oil and filter
Plugs and wires
Air filter
If you want to get really nitty gritty you can get a transmission filter and some tranny fluid.
And I usually run a can of "Sea Foam" through the gas tank for cleaning the injectors

If you go into Advance, or Auto Zone they will get everything I listed above for you. Be sure when doing the plugs and wires that you replace one at a time "wire and plug" if you pull them all off at the same time you won't know where they go when you are ready to put the new ones on.

The only thing to be weary is make sure to as if your vehicle has an exterior trans filter. If not dont worry about the trans filter unless you are mechanically inclined and can take the pan off the transmission and replace the gasket, drain the fluid etc. The internal filters and a flush should be done by a mechanic.

When I check the oil it smells of gas motor run strong but why would there be gas in the oil?


your oil may be breaking down,try a really good oil change with a fram oil filter,recommend that you use castrol 30 weight oil in winter and 40 weight in summer,also add lucas oil treatment in with the oil change,it gives great top of motor lubrication,not like regular oil.fram filters are great too,they won't fold under pressure like a cheap one would.when you refine oil,it turns into gas.if you've been using a quick oil change place,stop. find a mechanic that can change your oil. you go to parts store,purchase an oil change kit with 30 weight castrol oil,tell them you want to add lucas oil treatment in on the oil change and have them look up your engine to see how many quarts of oil it takes,make sure they know that you want to add the lucas in on the oil change so you don't overfill the oil.after you've purchased the oil change kit,then go to your mechanic with your supplies and have them change your oil.after you've done this once,you'll do it all the time.quick oil change places buy their oil in bulk and as cheap as possible,then charge you for quality products.they break down quicklyand add very little lubrication to your engine.thank you for choosing fixya.com

hi..


My bighorn is 1998 moder turbo diesel
-this may because of the seizure of the engine. the piston may got seized with the liner. this happens because the engine oil is not sufficient to lubricate the moving parts. try to service the engine that is the only way for getting back the engine and keep a good track of yout engine oil

Not sure about DTC but Diesel Bighorns have a real problem with cooking their alternators which present with similar symptoms to what you have described.
Hope this helps.
