Question about 1998 Isuzu Hombre
My 98 isuzu hombre w/ about 130k on it started running really rough and would stall when it came to an idle as I was driving it on the freeway the other day. I limped it to the nearest service center and the only thing they could tell me was that cylinder 3 was not firing. The list of codes they retrieved from my memory were as follows in chronological order:
P303-miss cyl 3, pending..., P0172 rich bank #1, P0303 Miss Cyl #3, after clear... P0300 Random miss.
Each cylinder metered at the following: #1-140, #2-145,#3-0, #4-120.
As I limped it home, it continued to run very rough and after about 30 miles it started to make a loud clicking noise which sounded to me like the oil lifters. So I pulled over and put 2 quarts of oil in, but it continued to make the clicking noise. I fear that this could be the piston rod or something.
Does anyone have any ideas? The garages I have spoken to about it are very hesitant to do any head work on it so I need to get an idea of what could be wrong so I can know if it is worth getting it worked on or if the engine is toast and I should just sell the piece of ****. Thanks
Cracked spark plug, damaged worn plug cable, the clicking, thumping is a result of operator forcing engine to run out of synch, as result of electrical combustion loss. the fact the vehicle continues to run rules out any problem with fuel line - fuel components. Let us know the outcome please.
