My isuzu bighorn 1995 (4jg2 engine) wont start after a short drive especially when engine is hot ?

I heard a good while back that if you put the wrong oil in the isuzu there is an oil senser on them that has too detect oil pressure,before it allows the engine too start maybe oil is too thin when hot just a theory

Head gasket not torqued down correctly is where I would start. A simple pressure check will show this up.

It's venting compression into the cooling system. Anything from a bad head gasket to a cracked head or block. Start the engine cold and see if the pressure jumps up quick before the engine is even to running temperature. If so that's what it is.

I have a Isuzu Bighorn 4jx1 but is hard starting. When it crank the engine on but bit not pick up speed or it it starts like it was out of fuel. Can you advice on what to do? Hear from you the...

try slightly over filling oil level if engine starts and runs for a minute or two then dies the oil pick up in sump has fallen out (cracked mounting bracket) or sucking air instead of oil. you can remove small tin engine sump after draining to check oil pick ups, after confirming it runs ok for a little while once over filling oil level in engine.
another thing that goes is the rail oil pressure sensor which reads incorrectly and a tell tale sign this is broken is the injector loom connector is full of engine oil when disconnected this is near engine oil level dip stick(wiring loom comming out of rocker cover), the sensors reading can be checked with scan tool before starting with ignition on, (0-0.2MPA) it must read if its reading higher with ignition on only (motor not running) the sensor needs replacing, the engine ECU needs to see approx 200MPA when cranking to get injectors to start to work properly and higher when running at idle and beond (up to about 5MPA at higher revs) if this is not getting to this or readings are fluctuating badly indicating air in oil the injectors wont supply the correct amount of diesel. in which the engine oil comming from low pressure (pickup pump) to then high pressure oil pump to rail and injectors.

1998 isuzu bighorn diesel starts and shuts off without any warning while driving.

If you got the 3.0 i'd say its the rail oil pressure sensor goin west .
If its the 3.1 check your shut off solenoid on the fuel injection pump as they can fai,l stop the engine then be ok next time you start up .

1998 Isuzu Bighorn Diesel. The car just won't start. My local dealer can start it using a cold start spray. But he has not been able to solve the problem. Please could somebody help

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
