Question about 2000 Isuzu Rodeo

1 Answer

I have a 2000 Isuzu Rodeo V6 3.2l, when it gets warm or if I put too much pressure on the engine for eg. if I drive hard the check engine light and the reduced power light comes on, at which point then engine makes a deep grinding noise and refuse to respond to any ecceleration. To get it to work again, I shut it off and start it up again.

Could be the fuel pump, they tend to be a big problem on these cars, can't tell you how many people I've told to replace it. But I would get a tune up, 100 bucks and they replace all the spark plugs, increasing your gas mileage etc. It also might be a coil firing out of order, those aren't too expensive, but every mechanic has a little computer that they can connect into your engine that will tell you everything that might be wrong, that's another thing I tell people frequently, that way if something's going bad and will brake soon and put you in a bad place, you can fix it early and save yourself that stress for another day.

Hope it helps.

Installed an engine from a 1999 isuzu rodeo into a 2000 isuzu rodeo. But wiring harness to coil package is different it does not seem to be making contact to spark plug and engine is missing fire. engine...


Hi,

Thank you for contacting fixya.com.

Since the spark plug is not coming in contact the engine light is flashing. Otherwise take your car to the nearest auto zone and check if any code is stored in the computer or not to get it fixed. However a flashing engine light means the ECU has detected a misfire strong enough to damage the catalyst in the cat.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

2000 isuzu rodeo car will not run in drive will run in reverse


***For Automatic Transmissions ONLY*** See if the Check Transmission/Check Engine light is on. If so, the likely cause is a sensor failure. If not on, the likely cause is the failure is an internal clutch problem. Only resolution is to overhaul the transmission.

I have a 2000 Isuzu Rodeo and the Check trans light came on. How do you check the transmission fluid?


You're gonna love this. There is no dipstick. There is a fill plug and a drain plug on the bottom of the transmission. the fill plug sits higher than the drain plug but is facing the bottom also, not on the side like you might figure. With car cold, drive around the block to get to warm temp. open fill plug with running and turkey baster fluid in till it runs out. lovely.

I drive a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo, 2.2L, 4 Cylinder engine. Sometimes when I'm driving the car slips out of gear! I press on the excellorator and all it does is revs.


My 2000 did this just before the transmission went out completely. It's been some time, and I've come to the conclusion that the ABS pump puts pressure against the transmission when the computer fails on it (this pump). My new transmission was laggy/slippy until I pulled the ABS fuse just to check this theory, and viola! Torque I hadn't felt in 4 years. If your ABS light is on, and has been on for some time, this may be the case. I would take it to the nearest shop and have the ABS pump checked.

Holden Rodeo 2001, check engine light keeps coming on!?


I'm having same problem on my 2000 model rodeo 4wd 3.2L V6. Other day check engine light came on. I checked engine bay nothing abnormal, or power loss. Next day light was gone. 2 days later driving, a sudden loss of power and light came up. After idling for a couple of minutes, drove off with light still on but all power back. 1 hour later of faultless driving loss of power for a minute or so. Engine temp normal. Had break for 1/2 hour and set off for last hour of journey without fault except check engine light still on. Following dayon startup light went out???
