Question about 1998 Isuzu Trooper
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!

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.

Testimonial: "what a great service. just wondering if the OBD II troubleshooting device would pick up a wheel sensor issue?"
Could be that the catalytic converter is stopped up or the timing belt or chain needs to be replaced. When is the last time it was tuned up? May need plugs wire etc. Fuel pump may also be going out get a pressure gauge or have it checked for fuel pressure
