Well, luckily they were only messing with the fuel system, I don't think they did anything mechanical, I would raise a big stink about it though. They recalled it and you took it to the dealer? Isuzu pulled out of NA and left a bunch of junk over here. We don't have too many diesels though. We had a diesel generator once, a big 15 KW, it would run out of fuel all the time. It would take days to get that thing started again and would never run right. One guy said that it had to be purged or primed or something, to get the air out of the fuel lines. He would go over there and crack the lines and it would run great, till it ran of gas again. I don't know what these guys did to your truck, but, I wouldn't pay them, I would blame them. Or pay them, stop payment on the check and see them in court,, keep track of your expenses. Strip the engine, that's a good one. Yeah, we'll just keep replacing parts till we hit it. Your bill is $6,745,549 plus tax! You might want to find a real diesel mechanic for a second opinion. Hope this helps.

I have a 1994 Isuzu Trooper and since the service the car refuses to start from cold. When you start the engine over, the car will start but the rev's won't go over @ 1000 rev's for around 5 minutes...

Who performed your last service? If it was fine before, and now it's acting up, then maybe there is a loose electric connector or vacuum line when everything was being buttoned up.
Please let me know if I may further assist you. -TXTEXAN

I would like to buy a 2000 trooper and have found one i like. I am concerned about talk of injector faults and huge bills. Today a main dealer advised against buying a trooper with the 3l diesel engine. Is...

The 3.0 is getting on a bit now but they are good value still.
Injectors are still being covered under warranty by Isuzu by good dealers free of charge .
If you buy one you need a good  local garage service them properly  to the hand book specs .
We have 5 !  and my other half's did 206000 miles (1998 model) before the injectors gave trouble and Isuzu still fixed the engine free .

I pass on what I have learnt on here ,another good source to read about them is

Engine runs wild with white smoke

If its a 4JX engine then its injectors and seals at fault dont run it any more cos it may blow up - like rods through the side !
The diesel is going straight into the engine without being injected and as the fuel lift pump is mechanical it wont stop on the key .
Should be under isuzu warranty though they are doin that repair on 1998 Troopers over here for free .

Large amount of white smoke on first start of the day

Have you had the injector recall check carried out? There is a problem with these injectors and this produces the symptoms you are describing. I suggest that you contact Isuzu direct for help. They have been very helpful in the case of my trooper
