Question about 2000 Isuzu Rodeo

1 Answer

Oil light goes on and off and engine has a knocking sound.

When I was driving my holden rodeo my oil light went on and I had a loss of power intermittendtly.I stopped the car and checked the oil and it was dry.I started the car again but heard a knocking sound so rang my wife who brought me 5ltrs of oil.  After putting in the oil and waiting 5min I started the car the knocking sound came and went and the oil light disapeared when I put my foot on the accelerater but went back on when not accelerating, I drove home very slowly with the engine making low knocking sounds.It felt like the car didnt have a lot of power but they may have been because I didnt want to drive too fast. Is it a head gasket or what?

    The vehicle had recently had the head gaskets replaced and wasonly going on 1200 miles since the last oil change. I want to know the cheapest route for a rebuild or motor swap, and what other engines besides the 3.5l stock engine in it that will fit easily.

This sounds like severe engine damage, do to loss of internal lubrication (no oil). That's the bad thing about 'idiot' warning lights, they come on when u have a severe problem, and the damage is done. You are going to probably have to purchase a used engine from an auto salvage yard, or purchase a re -manufactured engine. Sorry for the bad news, this is about as bad as it gets.

Oil light is on and engine in limp mode


check the oil level in the sump, coolant level, coolant temperature (overheating), transmission oil level if auto. The limp mode is energised by any number of sensors that register a fault that is detrimental to the engine/ gear box. Run the fault codes and repair any faulty units . Reset the CPU with a scanner .

Where I live there is a Schuck's auto parts...and they have a hand held diagnostic tester that plugs right in to your harness. This will tell you whats is wrong.It only takes about 2 min and they don't charge you.On my car it was the mass air flow censor.If you can't find a Auto parts store that does this...take it to a shop soon. Good Luck

Sounds like a diesel on a cold day


could be a knock sensor or rockers knocking until oil warms up and oil pressure seals the lifters

I have Isuzu Rodeo 2000 and just chenged the engine. The oil light comes on after running for 30 mins with mild knocking sound.


Low engine oil pump pressure, When the oil light comes on the is a low oil pressure condition, The oil pump circulates the oil . 1. reason for a loss of oil pressure is the excessive clearance in the engine bearing.2. another is for lack is oil passage is block from the oil screen. . is the oil pan damage like it been hit. That can cause a blockage and in return plug the oil passage.When you change the oil was the oil silverish in color, if it is that bearing that are worn and are getting shaved off. Mild or not damage has occurred

Engine knocks 3.2 isuzu rodeo 2000 ? help


You don't say how many miles or give a service history, but, that said I would check the timing belt and tensioner. When tensioner goes bad is often is reported as a loud knock or tick. Usually most evident at low RPMs. Another low cost try is to use a can of seafoam in the oil now, run it a few miles, then change it for a high detergent, low viscousity oil and drive it a while to see if the lifters clean up. engine tick is very common, generally due to lifters oil passages getting sludged up a little for 2nd gen 3.2l's
