Question about 2000 Isuzu Trooper

1 Answer

Diesel engine swap

I have a 2000 Isuzu Trooper with the 3.5L gas engine. Given that the 3.5L engines were ****, I'm wondering how hard it would be to swap it with a diesel engine once my 3.5 bites the dust. So, how hard would it be to find and import a 3.0 or a 3.1 diesel to the US, how hard would it be to swap them, or are there any other diesel engines that I could use?

It just slots in. The wiring loom will have to be altered to allow fror the addition of glow plugs and ancillaries, but no problem there, a competent mechanic can do that for you. It's a stright swap, (sorry the exhaust manifold may be a little different so you may have to buy a new manifold exhaustreplaement, Not a new manifold.) Just make sur all your gas is out of the tank and lines, change all the filters etc before you fire her up! Happy driving. There should be pleanty of trooper/GMC fronterra (same car, different badge) in the US

If you are sure that the engine oil is coming into the combustion chamber, then you have to overhaul the engine. After the overhaul is done, have it calibrated and and clean the exhaust pipe to get rid of the black smoke. And! remember, for diesel engines a big black smoke will always come out the exhaust if you suddenly step on the gas too deep and then over-revving it. (I mean always, that's why roadside emissions people are so stupid when stepping on the gas, they always step on it suddenly and over-rev it, it's a sure fail)

Where is the thermostat on a 2000 trooper


Please post what engine you have! There are a couple different motors offered.
You should be able to follow the upper radiator hose to the t-stat housing on either the 4cyl or gm V6, I 'm not sure if there is another engine option for that year. I was previously a Isuzu tech 10 years ago, but am not up to date on newer models.
