Question about Isuzu Trooper

2 Answers

I have a 1998 isuzu trooper 3.1td. The glow plug light on tha dashboard stays on for as much as 10 minutes sometimes. The local garage has tried to fix this with no success. Any ideas? Can I wire in a push switch to control this manually instead of using the normal vehicle electronics to activate and switch off.

If the glow plugs are faulty,this would be the reason for the problem,they are not glowing very well,unless the glow plugs have been replaced,then the circuit from the glow plug relay is faulty,or the relay itself,

Why does my Trooper take 30 minutes to warm up before intermittent power surging and panel lights blinking stops?

Need to know more. Is it petrol or diesel. If diesel is it the 3.1 or 3.0. Isuzu changed engines that year (1998) from 3.1 to 3.0 common rail.

Warning light on dashboard of 96 isuzu trooper i have no manual and i don't know what the warning light is for

If the warning light is CHECK ENGINE, take your vehicle to your local Autozone. They will hook a scanner up to it for free and tell you what the code is. If you post the alarm code on this website, you will get a description back of what the potential problems are.

Isuzu trooper hard to start

  • Even though the glow plug goes out it does not mean the all the glow plugs are working,
  • Remove glow plugs.
  • With a set of jump leads connected to a battery connect the earth lead to the body of the glow plug and touch the top of the glow plug where the wire is connected with the pos lead the top of the glow plug should heat up and turn red.
  • Only replace the ones that do not heat up.
  • Hope that helps.

I have a 1998 Bighorn 3.0L if the wrong grade of oil is used in the motor it miss fires and runs rough, due to the injectors being oil pressure controlled, I have heard of extreme cases causing a failure to start when cold. good luck
