Question about 1997 Isuzu Hombre

Open Question

Hi . I have a 1997 Isuzu hombre 2.2 with manual shift . I bought it new . Always serviced and taken care of . 145 k miles . Two years ago the fuel pump was replaced ... Then two weeks ago in one day the truck engine would die when stopping . The engine restarted on the second try . then that same day the when I tried to restart the engine it would fire and then stop running . Engine eventually started after several tries . . I drove home some 50 miles and parked .. The engine wont start now . turns over but no fire ... I friend helped me replace the fuel pump and still no go ... We tried to check if there was any power at the wire harness clip at the fuel tank . We could get no volatge . We think that the fuel pump relays are in the glove box . 3 identical relays . Which one is the relay for the fuel pump ? or is at all 3 ? Can anybody help with this frustrating problem? Also at this point I notice that when the ignition key is turned on , NONE of the idiot warning ligths on the dash turn on and also the fuel gauge reads way past full. the key buzzer works , radio and ligths etc ... are working though ..

I have a 1997 Isuzu Hombre. The shift will not come out of park. We have tried putting it into neutral, moving the metal piece and it worked, but it's stuck again. What could be the problem?

sounds like your starter is stuck or sticking to your transmission not allowing you to get out of park,,this is what your problem is

Isuzu Hombre pickup, 2.2L Vortec, Won't Start.

You need four things for an engine to run. 1. fuel 2. spark 3. compression 4. timing (spark at the right time. By your post it seems you have fuel and spark and you probably have compression unless you blew a head gasket. That leaves the timing. Check the timing and/or the timing belt or chain whichever you have.

Cyl #3 missing

Cracked spark plug, damaged worn plug cable, the clicking, thumping is a result of operator forcing engine to run out of synch, as result of electrical combustion loss. the fact the vehicle continues to run rules out any problem with fuel line - fuel components. Let us know the outcome please.

2nd gear clutching

STOP Downshifting!
STOP Forcing gear change, watch the Engine RPMs and shift accordingly, HOMBRE's are as good as the operator's. Hombre's have dash shift indicators which illuminate when it's time to 'shift' and not before, This has nothing to do with gear oil either. If you've drained it, you best fill it immediately and make sure it's ample level. The heat these gears sustain in is inceredible, cooling lubricant is essential. Here's a tip, while engine is OFF, ignition key is engaged, dash is illuminated, depress clutch peddle, keep it depressed and walk through all gears with gear shift, shifting should be smooth and unpeded, including reverse. If resistance is experienced at one or more gears, gear alignment is off as a result of inproper gear shifting while driving. Continue to drive vehicle just shift slower until clutch needs replacement then do an entire drive shaft upgrade. It worth it, it's great truck.
