Question about 1994 Isuzu Pickup

1994 Isuzu pickup Drivability Issues 2.2l carburettors

I have a 1994 Isuzu 2WD SWB with 58000 miles just received from my parents since they were tired of paying mechanics to try and fix it.

The truck alternates between revving extremely high as if the choke or fast idle circuit is on and stalling. Occasionally it will diesel when the ignition is off. It's worse when it's cold and sometimes runs normally. I haven't been able to mentally map to any particular air temperature (we run -20F to +80F in Ottawa), humidity fuel, etc. We run brand name regular gas.

The truck seems to lack power but my other car is a modified WRX so it could be a matter of persepctive. Still it tends to lose steam on long steep hills on the highway often requiring a downshift to 4th.

    Thanks folks.

    Gas is of regular grade, I could try midgrade to see if there is a difference.

    I will look for vacuum leaks this weekend, thank you.

    maybe you are using very low octane gasoline....since low octane gas seems to cause knocking or auto ignite from compression rather than from spark.

How do you change the fuell pump on a 1994 Isuzu Pickup truck?

The fuel pump is mounted to the underside of the intake manifold where it bolts onto the cylinder head (real pain to get to). If you remove the fuel pump there is a plastic spacer between the pump and the manifold (DO NOT LOOSE IT).
Good luck

I have a 1989 Isuzu pickup 2.3 5 speed . and the car runs fine however when it get to a certen speed in each gear a horrable screaching comes from what i am guessing the trans.can any one help.

replace the clutch assembly, your problem is most likely the throw out bearing. I say replace the clutch because you are in the heart, so to avoid doing it later do it now.
