Question about 1998 Isuzu Trooper

1 Answer

Gas pedal sticking

Upon initial accelleration gas pedal hesitates. give it a littel gas it accellerates to about 40 mph in secs. brakes don't stop it, emergency brake wouldn't stop. Threw it into neutral and let it rev like a rocket engine. within a few minutes it returned to normal. Mostly cold weather problem but has happened in warmer temp, just not to that degree of fear!

SOURCE: 98 Isuzu Trooper stalls on cold start, idle issues..

I had the same issue on my 99 Trooper.

It would usually start when completely cold, but idle around 2k RPM.
It would drive fine. But if I shut it down, ran into a store, and came back out, it would start but immediately idle.
Had to ride the gas a little to get it into gear.
The Check Engine light has been going on and off for 6 months or so.

I took this to my local trusted repair shop (no Isuzu dealers within 200 miles).
The diagnosed the light, and found that the Intake Gaskets were bad or leaking.
The idling problem was related to the car not being able to control the amount of air coming in.

They replaced the Intake gaskets by the next day, and I haven't had a problem since. And no more check engine light, which has been on half a year.

Here's some details from my bill:
(1) Intake Gasket set $107.95
Misc materials $21.00
2.1 hours of Labor

The total cost to me was $345.00, and I definately don't feel gipped.

SOURCE: brake slippage

It sounds like a wheel sensor is failing, this will trip the ABS and cause the brakes to feel a bit weird. You will need to press the brake harder to stop if the ABS getts tripped.

you may have to check the fuel pump function for pressure and volume when this happens as it could be a bad pump,you could have it checked when working as it could show up something but more likely should be done when it stops running.

Involuntary accelleration in my 96 honda accord 2.2L


Oxygen sensor might be going bad hondas tend to have two of them an upper and lower. The throttle sensor and or cable might be on the fritz too. The ECU tries to adjust everything based on driving patterns and it can do some strange things if other people drive it besides yourself you might want to reset it on hondas I believe you turn the key to acc hold the brake in for 5 to 10 seconds turn it to off then start it it not 100% on that memory is a bit off since I havent owned a honda in about 4 years. The gas pedal might also be sticking a little bit make sure its free and clear and presses in and out smoothly when stopped and parked of course.

Car accelerates without pressing gas pedal


I had a similar problem with a K5 Blazer, where the gas pedal had a plastic pivot point in the linkage. After about 60K miles, the pivot developed a burr that locked the gas pedal open and kept the vehicle about 60 MPH. If I kicked the pedal to knock it off the burr, it would then slow down. Try it...
