I'm having same problem on my 2000 model rodeo 4wd 3.2L V6. Other day check engine light came on. I checked engine bay nothing abnormal, or power loss. Next day light was gone. 2 days later driving, a sudden loss of power and light came up. After idling for a couple of minutes, drove off with light still on but all power back. 1 hour later of faultless driving loss of power for a minute or so. Engine temp normal. Had break for 1/2 hour and set off for last hour of journey without fault except check engine light still on. Following dayon startup light went out???
Seeking help from experts.

    I have a 1999 model 4wd 3.2L and I have had a problem with the check engine light constantly on for the past 2 1/2years. I don't experience any loss of engine power although my ute is on LPG also and I have been told by more than one mechanic that it's a false reading in the gas mixtures that's causing the problem. Because everything is electronic in this model Rodeo I'd suggeset getting hold of a scan tool (most mechanics should have one) and see what error messages come up on it once it's connected to your vehicle. It could be false reading like mine which trips the check engine light and possibly explain any loss of engine power due to the engine over/under compensating for the false fuel reading the computer is receiving. For me using the scan tool and having the errors erased gets rid of the check engine light, at least until i tow something or the engine is under stress and thinking the gas mixture is running lean. I tweak the mixtures now and then which seems to prevent the light from coming on as often or for as long.

Intermittant check engine light


The only way to find out what the problem is is by doing a scan of the car computer module using an OBD code reader.
The codes returned will tell you the cause of the problem.

2001 Holden (Isuzu) Rodeo head gasket kit & timing belt


As far as the price goes, the head gasket set at AutoZone is almost $300 which means you would obviously pay more than that at your mechnic shop.  I will check on the central pivot axis and get back with you.  Did he tell you a code number that is popping the Check Engine light off?

Cruise control & check trammission light comes on my 2001 Rodeo


I had that problem too and the issue was a loose wire connecting the engine control modude to the crankshaft sensor switch. The engine control module does not sense where the crankshaft position is when the wire moves, and that causes things to go snaky, such as the transmission and cruise lights coming on. This issue took a good mechanic in Syracuse one and a half weeks to find. Total cost was $425.00,$395.00 for labour, and $.99 for the new wire. Good luck!
