Question about 2004 Isuzu Rodeo

1 Answer

Also my 2004 Isuzu Rodeo makes a light short buzzing noise only when I am accelerating. BUT the noise only happens sometimes not every time I accelerate. Any suggestions? Transmission? I'm taking it in this week but just trying to get an idea on what it could be. Thanks!

I just bought an 04 isuzu rodeo with only 75000 miles it seems to run rough and makes a knocking noise and shakes and no the chk engine light is on what do you suggest I do

First thing I would check is timing then plugs and wires. With electronic ignitions, even bad plugs and wires can cause rough running and pinging and knocking, backfire and such.

There is a grinding or ticking from the transfer case.

find a live hands on mech. for all noise......
finding the sources of noise takes, hands on,
and can be dangerous to find, and to continue driving,.
and this car is not AWD, its really a part time , 4wd, made by ISUZU.
this car is honda. , badged Isuzu.
do not drive in 4wd on dry pavement , only on ice or dirt.
or you will wind up the driveline and damage it. that is the cause of the terrible noise, im sure.
see why here

now the 2wd.
that is a whole other matter if you didnt already damage parts
in 4wd.
The Honda Passport was a badge engineered version of the Isuzu Rodeo released in 1993

the Rodeo has no center differential, so can not drive
on dry pavement (ice free) safely nor damage free.

The ABS light in my 2004 Isuzu Rodeo (3.5) has been on for an extended period of time. My car cuts off randomly when the brakes are applied. Suggestions?

Your ABS sensor/s... you have to check them all...Sometimes the sensor outer wire gets worn,an the wires are exposed on the inside, now if this has happened...the wires will short out, when they touch the metal frame of the vehicle, which will cause the vehicle to cut off... However also make sure you dont have any vacuum leaks from your brake booster... A big loss in vacuum will also have the vehicle to loss power....Gooduck...

I have a 95 Isuzu rodeo. The engine makes a loud, almost diesel engine noise. When I am accelerating, the noise seems to go away. When I was shopping for this vehicle, I saw many ads that said their's make...

ATTENTION!! Do not run the engine if you do not want to have to buy an engine!! I just solved this problem with my own 95 Rodeo the problem you are having is common on 95 rodeo with 3.2 L engine. Failure of the hydralic timing belt tensioner will allow the tensioner pulley to knock against the top of the tensioner unit ( inside timing cover lower left side of crank pulley little cylinder looking part ) held in by 2 bolts when you take it off if you can depress the button its bad . Dealer has part for $110.00, so go to auto zone but they dont have it listed for 95 rodeo have them look up timing belt tensioner for 95 honda passport $76.95 takes 2 days VDO (Vendor Order only) not a very hard job have fun dont forget to change the timing belt and water pump for good measure after the complete job is done you should not have to worry about it for another 70,000 miles.have a good day

The upper intake gaskets may be leaking. They are made of plastic and metal and will leak air. Do not remove the cover on very top of manifold when changing.

most of fuel pumps were in tank, wire corrodes is harness under right front seat floor pan to tank
if fuel pump buzz is heard and car runs and when it doesnt run you cant hear the fuel pump try
turn ignition off wait 10 seconds
turn ignition to on position to (prime or hear pump buzz)
no buzz fuel pump not working check fuel pump relay(swap with another) and try again?
you could use test light to pump wiring and make sure your getting power to pump on this prime test no power relay or wiring problem.
power at pump, but no buzz fuel pump faulty

"when the fuel pump makes a very short duration can hear it....but in seconds it will be gasoline has made its way to the engine.........

if you cant hear any noise from the fuel could be that the fuel pump realy is bad........if you happen to change the relay....and it still does not work.....then it is the fuel pump. that is fried.......

about the water.....i am not shure......unless there was water in the gasoline itself....or somebody put water in there in purpose....

hope this helps...
