There are 2 likely answers to your smoke and lack of horsepower:

  1. White smoke always a sign of a blown head gasket. Check the oil, if it looks like a milk shake, it would confirm that there's coolant in the oil and the head gasket is blown
  2. Bad catalytic converter; a failing Cat Conv smokes a lot, throws a lot of heat, and really bogs down the performance. Eventually, if its the catalytic converter, the truck will stop all together
One of these solutions should be the answer to your question. I do wish you the best of luck and am available if you should have any other questions. Take care.

Does the '89 Isuzu Trooper II have a gas tank


Depending on how good the guage is, when the yellow light comes on telling you that your fuel is low, you have approx 2 gallon left in the tank. It is never good to run on a tank that low due to heat buildup of the pump which causes pump failure. The gas acts as a coolant for the pump.

Need to replace starter


I recommend you get the Haynes repair manual on your vehicle. Start by removing the negative battery terminal, then removing the retaining bolts from the starter followed by removing the wires from the starter. Reverse the process to put the new starter on.
