SOURCE: unstable idle

I had a similar problem, i took it into Nissan, had the codes cleared, drove it till it happened again, got Nissan to tell me the codes and what they mean, the only fault that came up was temperature sensor, the one for the CPU not the Guage. I replaced it $70, that was 2 years ago and the problem hasn't occured again.
My assumption as to why the engine would "hunt" and drop idle was that the CPU would see that the engine was cold (intermittant fault with CPU temperature sensor) and increase the fuel delivery to the engine ((The CPU will do this when the engine is cold, (same as the choke on the old carby engines), allowing the engine to start and run eaiser until the engine reaches operating temperature)) causing it to over fuel and choke sometimes stalling.

You have a float that reads the level of the gas. The sensor probably needs replaced.

My 4ja1 Isuzu pick up, fuego , has a smoke or mist coming out in dipstick. I check the breather and it has the same amount of smoke coming out. But every time I checked the level of oil by dip stick,

I take it that this is a diesel engine. The oil you should be using is diesel oil 20w-40 or 50 next there is blowby from the combustion process that is heating the oil in the sump and it is fuming of. If the engine is running well it is not a great problem
If when doing an oil change the oil is thick and heavy and doesn't like to run out then it is a problem as the paraffins in the oil are burning and reducing the oil to tar.and this means engine rebuild.
If it is a petrol engine then you can use diesel oil in it as the only difference is the cleansing additive in the diesel oil. It helps keep a petrol engine clean inside
