Check engine light indicates that the computer in your vehicle has sensed a electrical problem pretaining to the performance of the engine usualy a diagnostic scan would determine the actual cause, vehicle has to be hooked up to a diagnostic tools.

I am also working on a 2002 isuzu axiom with the 3.5 engine that also starts for a few seconds then shuts off and will not start back up i did an engine over haul on it, and the engine ran before i removed the engine, did you find the problem?
my wifes truck has same problem, better off changing the whole fuel pump. the fuel level sensor is on the casing for the fuel pump. mine as well replace pump since you have to drop the tank anyway. before you order one, check on the drive side door jam to see what month you axiom was built. this is an important factor in ordering your fuel pump. sounds stupid i know but trust me. alot of parts for the axiom depend on the month.
2002 isuzu axiom engine light was off and on replaced the egr rear top left engine 2 bolts and snap out harnes, make sure you clean well with carb cleaner while running, plug back openning to exaust as flames may ocur from exaust and carb cleanner is combustable. spray carb cleanner in front hole little by little while engine is running. you will now by hesitation of engine when spaying.
have it checked out by a quality trans shop amco's always a good chpice good flashing light indicates transmission malfunction or engine problem and the trans has gone in to safe mode but if no check engine or service engine light prob the trans
Most if not all Isuzu's are known for using a lot of oil, as I know this from experience as I currently own a 2002. They do not show and visible signs of oil burning, because there is what they call Blow-By. The oil slips past the rings, do to Isuzu using a smaller ring size, therefor the oil is burned within the engine! One issue that you may find is a large amount of carbon build up within your engine. I recommend you purchase a can of Seafoam from you local auto part store, such as Advance Auto or Autozone. With a warm engine, and running, disconnect the vacuum hose from your brake booster and allow it **** into the engine about half a can, shut the engine off and let it sit for 10-15 minutes, then start the engine and watch the smoke show. The rest of the Seafoam can be used in your fuel as a great injector cleaner!
Where is the oil going? Is there evidence of leakage on the ground after parking overnight? My guess is that the garage did not tighten the drain plug or oil filter properly, causing it to leak out. A knocking noise indicates serious damage to the engine, due to insufficient lubrication. The noise u hear is probably a bad crankshaft or connecting rod bearing. If this was due to improper tightening of the drain plug or filter, the garage is responsible (but good luck trying to get them to fix it). This is why I never let anyone change my oil/filter.
I have the same vehicle, and it is usually caused by the gas cap being loose or not sealing properly. Double check and make sure that it is tight and the code will automattically reset itself. If this doesnt work, Schucks/AutoZone will give a free code check and let you know what it means.
quite often the engine check light is indicating an exhaust issue (not the pipe but in the engine) or a faulty oxygen sensor(s) I had a small rubber tube come off one of the sensors in my old Sedona once and after paying through the nose to get new sensors because the dealer said the diagnostic machine said they were faulty it was only weeks later when the issue had not gone away I discovered the pipe was off...
