Question about Isuzu Rodeo

1 Answer

On my 1995 Izusu Rodeo, i was driving and the brakes completely gave out and now i can't identify the problem of why i dont have any brakes, no pressure or anything when i pressed them? The rear anti-lock indicator was on, but i dont know if that has anything to do with the brakes giving out? Also i bled the lines already and it wasn't that any air had got into them, i dont think, and my front drained pretty much all fluid like suppose, but the rear was barely any drain? Do you think its the master cylinder, maybe the rear/anti-lock brake system or could it be something totally different all together?

The only two things that can cause this are the master cylinder and a loss of fluid in the system, i suspect u have a defective master cylinder.

    here is how to replace a master cylinder, remember it must be bench bleed before installeing, the mnew master will come with the kit to do this and full instructions on installing it. Here are the general instructions to replace the master cylinder

    1. Step 1
      Locate the brake fluid reservoir and remove any break fluid with a suction device. The break fluid reservoir is next to the fluid lines and the master cylinder.

    2. Step 2
      Remove the electronic fluid level sensor just below the fluid reservoir by disconnecting and releasing the safety clip.

    3. Step 3
      Disconnect all break fluid lines from the master cylinder. Loosen in a counter clockwise motion with a line wrench. Some break fluid will leak out when the lines come off.

    4. Step 4
      Use a socket wrench to loosen the master cylinder mounting bolts. When both bolts come off remove the master cylinder from the car.

    5. Step 5
      Place the new master cylinder in position and tighten the mounting bolts.

    6. Step 6
      Reconnect the brake fluid lines and the electronic fluid level sensor.

    7. Step 7
      Refill the brake fluid reservoir and bleed the brakes until all air is out of the brake line.

    read the info i got from an Izuzu owners club about this problem in a Rodeo.

    take the cover off the steering column by removing 4 screws to gain access to the park lock out solenoid. (I had to remove the dash by removing 2 screws behind the Hood release and yanking the cover off. This is how i gained access to the two forward most bolts on the steering column cover.) From hear I can see the shift interlock on the top right of the sterring column.
    Its a simple fix - you just need to put your right hand underneath the dash, under the ignition switch with the stuck key, and feel around for the stiff transmission-shift-lock cable, and just giggle it about a bit. Try all directions, don't be aggressive with it; and eventually you will be able to turn the key to the LOCK position.

Why would the brake lights stop working when the headlights are on in a 1998 izusu rodeo?

Well, the brake lights, and tail lights are different. Normally, when you turn your headlights on, your tail lights come on as well, because they are controlled by the same switch. If both your tail lights are not on, changing the lamps is the first thing to check. If both have stopped working at the same time though, it is likely going to be a wiring issue. You Brake lights, however, are controlled by a switch usually installed and activated by the brake pedal. If it has come loose or been damaged the your brake light will not light up when you brake. This is particularly dangerous. You should make these determinations and then repair before doing any further driving. Good luck!

My 95 Izusu Rodeo v6 3.2L has a lack of power and hesetates upon accelleration. There is no check engine light what should I check?

Could be that the catalytic converter is stopped up or the timing belt or chain needs to be replaced. When is the last time it was tuned up? May need plugs wire etc. Fuel pump may also be going out get a pressure gauge or have it checked for fuel pressure
