Question about 2000 Isuzu Rodeo
Stalls while driving but will start up again, oil and battery and redused power idot lights go on, and it is stalling more often ???
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

just a few easy things to check! if your battery is more then 3 yrs old,its a good idea to replace it, even if this is not the cure, but it sounds to me it is a good possibility,had the same problem with my car! see you don't want to jump start it through the battery in your car! the way to buy pass a bad battery is to connect the positive cable from the good battery to the positive post on the car being jumped, connect the negative cable to the frame of the car being jumped,NOT TO THE BATTERY.also, when u get it running take it right to a place that can check your alternator to make sure its o.k. their are some auto part stores that will do that for free and u could get the battery from them if needed.good luck to u,hope we helped!

hi check for vacume leak. take a spray bottle fill with water while engine is running spray water around vacume hoses if motor smooths out you found your leak

it's the EGR valve and can be fixed by anyone. It involves disconnecting the battery, remove electrical connection, and removing 2 screws and cleaning the surface area well and replacing it as well as the gasket. A new EGR valve runs around $120 and trust me you can fix this and save hundreds!
