Question about 2000 Isuzu Trooper

1 Answer

Unstable RPM - is this also a safety issue??

During idle or slow moving, randomly the RPM is rising to values almost up to 2000, then reduces randomly. Sometimes even causes the vehicle to accelerate without any warning. This phenomena happans few times a year and disappears.
Service Isuzu garage cannot identify the problem as it shows and dissapears occasionally.
Is therer any official Isuzu email that can help??

Yes here is the common problem

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.

i release brakes, (brakes are not packed in ICE , are they?)
I select 1gear or reverse (A/T or m/t)
the car moves or dont move, which is it, my guess catch = no move at all.
I try to drive, i look at RPM and MPH
RPM moves up and MPH track.
track means they both move in a linear progression.
RPM rises and for all RPM increases MPH also increases.
does it?
if all that works then we have an engine power issue.

Engine problem idle speed

Hi goodafternoon,
I think the problem is your thermostat is bad, because I had similar issue that the rpm would be normal and then rpm goes up by itself for a while without any warning. I got an accident because of this in the winter. Hope this helps.

92 Accord occasionally fluctuates it's idling between 1000 & 1500 rpms when started.

Unstable idling especially rising and falling RPM (Described as Hunting) can often be traced to an air leak in the inlet side of the engine. Unmetered air is being drawn into the engine causing temporary confusion in the management system which adjusts the fuel to compensate... this increases the RPM ... the engine then realizes that the throttle has not been depressed and backs off the fuel delivery. Thus dropping the RPM... this cycle then repeats.

If you can find a cracked, damaged or loose pipe then great!.. If not it may be a leaking gasket.
Which will be harder to locate.

Rpm sputters up in down when i idle at a sign or red light.

Sounds like the Idler solenoid that is on the throttle body. They get carbonized and cause just that issue. They are expensive like $100 bucks so you might consider taking it out and getting some carbon remover just made for selenods like that. I saw some at Kragen Auto, in CA last time I was there.

Cleaning it might buy you 10kmiles but and can help you isolate the issue with minimal dollar costs.
Get a book and find it physically or go to to find it.

What happens is there is carbon buildup on this type of valve solenoid, and it makes starting and warming up irratic,and is usually related to consistent ideling.
