No they are not required to, because the mileage is on the whole car and not on the engine, since there is many many parts than get older whit the mileage like wheel bearing transmission etc,
the original mileage has to stay the same, the only time they are required to reset the mileage is when the instrument cluster is been replace, it has to read exactly same as the old one,
example, if your car is currently reading 36000 by replacing the cluster it has to be set at 36000, having a new motor does not mean than the car is new again,

1997 isuzu rodeo speedometer/odometer quit working, check engine light on

I suspect that the TCM is playing up but without a proper code reading it is difficult to say. Why do you not take it to autozone as they do scanning for nothing.

Do the miles transfer when changing cluster on 2004 mazda 3

A magician might be able to do that, but no mechanic can. Whatever miles is on the cluster from the previous car-that's what your "new" mileage is. Write it down when installed, then you can always figure the true miles on your car and engine by comparing the old cluster's odometer with the new one. See? The old odometer is the true mileage. Whatever miles you put on the new odometer should be added to the old odometer's miles to give a true mileage of the car and engine.

2002 Isuzu Trooper Check Engine Light Flashing Now Wont Start


The engine and the automatic transmission in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems.

I have a 1994 Isuzu Trooper (3.2 L V6 DOHC) with 180,000 miles on it. Recently, the engine has developed a ticking in the lower end, as well as low oil pressure ( at idle around 5 to 10 psi). Recently the...

It appears that the main bearings are failing, as well as the rods bearings and maybe a wrist pin too.

In other words, it's worn out.

If you still like the vehicle and want to keep it, a warrantied used engine is probably the best solution.

Engine noise 1994 isuzu trooper 171000 miles

Engine noises can be caused by any of the moving components of the engine. Since we are talking about a 17-year-old vehicle with 171,000 miles, your guess is as good as anybody's. I would recommend having a professional mechanic listen to it and give you some idea of what is causing the noise.

If you put a new engine,can you ajust the mileage to O zero?

NO, the miles on the odometer are for the car, not the engine.

It is illegal to tamper with the odometer on any vehicle.

O2 sensor

There should be a reset switch that turns the light off. Some vehicles require a code scanner tool to reset the check engine light. On some Isuzu models you have to remove the instrument cluster and move a screw from one hole marked KSW to another hole with the same KSW marking (it may have tape over the second screw hole). Other Isuzu models may have a small switch on teh back of the instrument cluster or may have a different marking on the screw holes (some were marked wit the letter B on both holes). The O2 light usually comes on at 90,000 mile increments which is when Isuzu recommends changing it.
