I worked for an Isuzu dealer and we used 10w30. All Isuzu v6's use oil and is normal for 1 or more qts. per 1500 miles per. Isuzu reps.!

Depends on your temperature, and where you live if it uses a little oil use a little heavier to cut consumption. If it is always cold where you live like below zero, I wouldn't use more than a 20w 30w. in warm climates a 30 weight oil is ok, but if you have low oil pressure you can safely use forty weight.

Knock sensor or Catalytic Converter?


Is the vehicle burning oil? It might not smoke, because the catalytic converter runs hot enough to burn up the smoke. Still, you are coating that converter from the inside if it is using much oil! Try using a heavier oil such as 30 weight ! Did you notice I did NOT say 5W, nor did I say 10W, before I said 30 weight? As an alternative, you could try using some Lucas Oil Treatment. In an old engine with lots of miles, thin oil, such as 5W ANYTHING or 10W ANYTHING is too thin for an engine which is WORN on the inside!

2004 Rodeo, 103,000 miles. no oil leaks so I guess its burning oil. Oil is maybe a qt. low after 1000 since change. Engine still sounds fine but I don't know what a new engine sounds like since I bought...


if you are using a quart of oil every 1000miles,that is NORMAL FOR A MODERN ENGINE.thats why they last so much longer than the old technology.you could try 20/50 oil when you next change as that will help.but worry when it gets to pint every 350 miles.

I just need the oil weight and number or quarts on 2001 isuzu rodeo 4 cyl.


10w 40 any brand, and the engine holds 5 qts. But I would check it after a few miles just to make sure. It might hold 6. Mine has a deep pan but I can't remember how much I put in, I just fill it up. Hope this helps.

1993 isuzu rodeo with 175,000 miles has ticking comming from valve covers. ticking comes and goes. oil pressure is good.


this is caused by worn hydraulic valve lifters. try a good "seafoam" engine flush the next time you get ready to change your oil. follow the instructions on the can and then use 10w 40 oil and an isuzu(or honda) oil filter. you should notice a dramatic change.

My 2000 isuzu trooper seems to use oil a little, I've checked the antifreeze-nothing,spark plugs look fine, and no smoke out the back....I can't figure out were the oil goes... Any ideas I would appreciate...


How much is a little oil? 1 quart(US) in 5000 miles is reasonable oil consumption. If you don't have any major leaks, the oil is going out the exhaust pipe. As the engine wears the piston rings dont seal as well as they used too and the oil gets burned in the combustion process. You didnt mention how many miles you have on the vehicle, An engine with 150,000-175,000 is going to burn a little oil..
