Replacing the head gasket solved one problem.
But, you have a leakage problem with oil and/or antifreeze now.
The head gasket could be failing again, or you have a cracked block or cylinder head.

Take it back to where it was worked on and say that you want it fixed, please.

good luck on this.

Isuzu trooper duty 1995 loss of power wont rev over 1800rpm

the cars come with many diff. engines. and EFI systems that match it.
so cant help you.
but ill answer in pure physics.
1: lost DC 12v power to the EFI system causing spark and fuel losses.
2: lost engine compression. 1 or more cylinders.
3: lost spark or never doing a full tuneup every 60k at least.
4: bad fueling, too much or too little.
what do do is a few simple tools to discover the truth.

do you want to gue$$, or test.

My 2000 Isuzu Trooper is useing about 1 quart every 300 miles and no leaking or noticable smoke. Any answers?

A "leak down" test will test the cylinder effectiveness, as will a compression test. These will tell you how good the engine is.

On heavy acceleration vehicle seems to have an engine miss but gets worse the more its driven

verify the sparks plugs, fuel filter and catalytic converter. If you can replace the sparks plugs and fuel filter!!
