No...You do not have to remove the engine to remove the oil pan.
Here is a list of things that will have to be removed to get the oil pan off...
1) Measue the hight of the vehicle of the front end, at the wheel opening (center)
2) Raise vehicle and insert two have duty jack stands on frame just behide the front bumper.
3) Remove front wheels,remove the tension load of torsion bars( just the tension do not remove torsion bars)
4) Remove all steering linkage, center link, Idler arm and bracket, and outer tie rods as a complete assembly.
5) Remove frame cross member,and cover right behide oil pan.
6) Remove the four bolts that hold the front axle to the frame. Note: stick a floor jack under the front axle before removing the bolts.
7) Remove the oil and the lower oil pan or oil sump.
8) Remove all the upper pan retaining bolts.
don't forget the bell housing bolts at the bottom that bolt to oil pan. and any other ten milimeter bolts you see that are bolted to the pan itself.
9) The oil pan is on the floor by now... if you are going after an engine knock,check rod bearing #1 first chances are that is the one giving you the knocking noise...
FINAL AND MOST IMPORTANT NOTE: I HAVE BEEN A MASTER TECHNITION FOR A LONG TIME... THE DIRECTIONS ABOVE ARE NOT FOR A NOVICE.. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.. WITH THAT OUT OF THE WAY... HOPE THIS POST HELP SOME ONE...

Yes, you need to pull the engine to remove the oil pan. This requires that you remove the propeller shafts and the third cross member to slide the transmission toward the rear of the vehicle. I suggest you purchase a service manual before you start this process. More than likely the rod bearing for cylinder 1 has failed. This seems to be a common problem with later model 3.5L Trooper engines because the oil pump and oil gallery do not deliver oil as efficiently to the number 1 rod bearing.

Isuzu V6 sparkplug firing order


gee guy, 3.1L or 3.2L?
you only need 3 things to time the distrib. static.
where is #1, its the most forward cylinder, LOOK carefully.
forward means closest to the cam drive end of engine.
not flywheel end.
rotor rotation direction (crank and watch it)
now the order, 3.2l v6? IS It? the single cam?
1990 trooper v6
answering for only USA car...
our 3.2 has no distrib V6 its DIS.






3.1L V6 USA spec. only. rotor is CCW

Im trying to change the oil pump of my isuzu trooper 2000 and it seems a got to take off the botton part of engine so a can pull out the pump by the front,can please anyone tell me if thats true and if it...


The oil pump is in the engine oil pan. It's usually easiest to remove the oil pan by removing the motor mounts and jacking up the engine just enough so you can remove the oil pan. Use a piece of wood when you do this and then you'll also have to support the engine in the raised position while disassembling the oil pan/pump. You may also have to adjust other things when you jack the engine up far enough, be careful you don't stretch anything or damage anything.

Hope this helps.

clean your engine and look very carefully where the oil leak really come from, the cause why this leak happen, the engine was shutdown while the engine temperature is hot. usually the leak will come from the turbo. the engine must be idle for 3-5min before shutting off.

How do I check the transmission fluid of my 98 Isuzu trooper ?


In fact, you can. The large transmission pan has two plugs in the bottom. The higher one is a fill plug. The lower one is a drain plug. The proper procedure for checking the level is: A) Drive vehicle until transmission reaches operating temperature (go for a 30 min drive). B) Park vehicle and apply emergency brake, run gear selector through all gears (engine running, pausing 5 sec.'s in each gear) from Park, down, and back to Park (very important to be in park when checking level). C) Immediately remove the upper fill plug and check level with your finger, it should be just up to the hole, fill as necessary. NOTE: If more than a dribble of fluid drains out when you first open the fill plug then it was overfilled or the procedure was not followed. Use a catch pan under the hole just in case. Filling of the fluid is by means of a small pump and hose, commonly found at auto parts stores.
