I had the same issue on my 99 Trooper.
It would usually start when completely cold, but idle around 2k RPM.
It would drive fine. But if I shut it down, ran into a store, and came back out, it would start but immediately idle.
Had to ride the gas a little to get it into gear.
The Check Engine light has been going on and off for 6 months or so.
I took this to my local trusted repair shop (no Isuzu dealers within 200 miles).
The diagnosed the light, and found that the Intake Gaskets were bad or leaking.
The idling problem was related to the car not being able to control the amount of air coming in.
They replaced the Intake gaskets by the next day, and I haven't had a problem since. And no more check engine light, which has been on half a year.
Here's some details from my bill:
(1) Intake Gasket set $107.95
Misc materials $21.00
2.1 hours of Labor
The total cost to me was $345.00, and I definately don't feel gipped.

you should be looking for the drivers side wheel (brake) cylinder it is inside the drum with the brakes at the top usually, look at the cylinder on each end there is a small black rubber cap, pull it back a little in one spot and see if brake fluid runs out, if so replace it. Also possible that the brake line is leaking, so check it out too.

Having worked for an Isuzu dealer I have seen this a lot with aftermarket alternators from places like auto-zone, napa etc. For some reason they will do strange things in these vehicles. The fix was to get a Isuzu alternator. We did have good luck with Beck Arnly alternators also. We also had a local rebuilder repair some with good luck too. If all else fails get a used one.

I just changed the brake pads and rotors on my father's 2001 Trooper that he recently purchased because they were shaking just like your were. He bought it from a mechanic shop and they had put new pads on it but it needed new rotors as well. If there is noticable groving on the rotors and new pads are installed it can create shaking, sometimes severe, when the brakes are applied. It sounds like this is what has happened with your vehicle as well. That being said, I don't consider it a huge safety issue to drive it until you get it fixed, just know that your braking will not be optimal and that it will take you longer to stop than if the brakes were working properly. All that being said, get them fixed ASAP so you don't have to worry about it. Who wants to mess with safety right? Good luck, hope this helps!
