Question about 2004 Isuzu Rodeo

1998 Isuzu Rodeo surges while cruising

I recently bought a 1998 Isuzu Rodeo with the 3.2 v6 and auto trans. The engine runs great - smooth and quiet with lots of power. The car has 107,000 miles on it, and seems to have been well taken care of. A few days ago, it started surging while driving on the freeway at 65 MPH. It only seems to do it while I am driving. I can sit with the car in neutral, and I don't see/hear any change in RPM. I checked it at 500 RPM intervals from idle to 4000 RPM.I haven't checked the auto trans fluid yet. I will today. Could I be low on fluid? I have the 4L30E, which is a pain in the **** to check - no dipstick. I have the service manual, and I know how to check it. Any suggestions would be GREAT!

It is probably the mass air flow sensor, you can try cleaning the small wire inside it (windex works the best) but chances are it will fault again soon after. replacing it is your best option.

Is a 1999 isuzu rodeo sport 2wd v6 auto trans idle air replacement valve interchangeable with a 1999 isuzu amigo sport


double posted why, ? please add to 1 post,
by edits or comments, please'
there are 3 , v6 engines, you never said which
why ask us, about parts, we dont sell parts
and would have to read the same books on parts as you
why ask use to do that.?
here is the list
USA only, RODEO, prime examples. the GAS v6 engines. 3.1L 3.2L 6vd1 SOHC, one cam per head, then the optional... 6vd1w DOHC, 2 cams in one head, w = DOHC optioned heads, then came... 3.5L (a stroked out, 3.2L.) 6ve1 are all DOHC engines. and have 24 valves. (6x4) with 2 rear cam sensor, used for VVT and spark both,
the engines must match ,to mix parts

here im at isuzu.com parts page
note it changed on August 99, mfg build dates. so.....
tricky
this will not cause low MPG
it will cause idle controls to be dead.
why not post all symptoms, first. and stop guessing?

How do i fix the speedometer on a 95 isuzu rodeo


no engine stated (size or cylinder counts)
nor if odometer works or not.

one engine has cable head other not.
so....
if odometer is dead on one engine, its VSS dead
if od0meter is dead on other , the cable is bad.
there.

the odometer is that counter deal on the cluster bottom tells how many miles car has moved.
it rolls, 1/10s as you drive, it the counter is dead
that means the odometer is dead. too.

WHERE DO I PUT THE TRANSMISSION FLUID IN MY ISUZU RODEO 1998 4WD V6-3.2L ENG. WHERE IS THE FILLER???


stevenhurc_15.jpg most didnt have dip stick for auto trans, fill through fill plug shown then start and run through gears to circulate oil then remove fill plug while engine is still running and topup until oil just trickles out of filler plug hole. It is a bit of a pain to fill and can get messy depending on what you have available and be careful of the hot exhaust as you fill and top up trans level.

The engine misses on 3 and 4 and compression leaking into radiat


If you do in fact have compression (air) blowing in to the cooling systems this would show either a blown head gasket, warped head or cracked head. Please od not run the Rodeo until repaired as if coolant is getting in to the cylinder or oil (Your oil will look like chocolate shake) it can do severe damage. What motor please 3.0 V6?

Black exhaust smoke only for the first 30 seconds,


you're buring oil, either through piston rings or leaky valve seals. definatley check your oil more regularly. if it starts using alot of oil, might want to take it in and get it fixed or trade it off.
