Question about 2001 Isuzu Trooper

2 Answers

I have a 3.0 diesel Trooper which has done 168k without much trouble, however, I now have the following problem. When the car gets hot and I get into traffic it does not want to pull away. It is as if it is starved of fuel. If I wait 5min the car cools a little and then will move normally. I am aware when it will do it as the idle speed drops slightly. Because it does not come up on the diagnostics my dealer is unhelpful. Jim

Yes you can . Requires some skills but the only bits that dont work after are the speedo and the rev counter .

These can be made to work but its a bit tricky ..

I would like to buy a 2000 trooper and have found one i like. I am concerned about talk of injector faults and huge bills. Today a main dealer advised against buying a trooper with the 3l diesel engine. Is...

The 3.0 is getting on a bit now but they are good value still.
Injectors are still being covered under warranty by Isuzu by good dealers free of charge .
If you buy one you need a good  local garage service them properly  to the hand book specs .
We have 5 !  and my other half's did 206000 miles (1998 model) before the injectors gave trouble and Isuzu still fixed the engine free .

I pass on what I have learnt on here ,another good source to read about them is

Glow plugs siezed in head

Big problem this everwhere , some have used loctite freeze and unsieze with good results . Soak em in diesel every day for a week , get the engine hot and have a go is my way ,if they break you are no worse off if they are duff ones !

Check the plugs you think are bad in the engine with a multimeter set on ohms should read 0.8 to 1.0 if they are ok .

Isuzi trooper diesel jerking when driving

Hello, it is possible that the pump is going bad but, it sounds more like water in the fuel or a dirty filter or dirty injectors. I would try a fuel additive first to see if that will clear your problem. Let me know if you need any help. Good luck.
