Did you purchase the Isuzi 'as is' or is there any warranty? Some states require a 30 day warranty, just to prevent people from being ripped off. Bring it back to the dealer IMMEDIATELY if there is any warranty. Even if there isn't, I would return to complain and hopefully have them fix some of the several problems you now have. This most likely won't help, but file a complaint with your local BBB and state attorney general. The important lesson at this point is to never purchase a vehicle without 1st checking the reputation of the dealer, and without at least a 30 day warranty. If you can't get a 30 day warranty, don't buy it.
The suction noise you hear may just be a vacuum line that is disconnected. You will have to hunt around for it while someone turns the engine off (as that 's when it makes the noise). You can purchase a small extending adjustable mirror at a parts store to help look for the source of the noise in hard to see locations at the back of the motor. Try to find this 1st, as it may correct some of your current problems.
Misfire can be caused by the spark plugs, plug wires, coil, or injectors. Your description sounds like the vibrating didn't start until the check engine light came on, so I don't think you have issues with the 'u joints' as the parts store suggested. The vibrating is caused due to it running rough. Good luck.
