Question about 1988 Isuzu Trooper 2 Door

1 Answer

88 trooper gas light comes on and engine bucks.

I JUST BOUT THIS THING. I CAN START IT UP AND OF COURSE IT'S AN 88 IT TAKES A COUPLE MIN TO GET IT RUNNING ON IT'S OWN. I'LL DRIVE IT FOR A MIN, THEN WHEN IT'S HAD A CHANCE TO GET TO NORMAL THE GAS LIGHT WILL COME ON AND I'LL STEP ON THE GAS AND THE THING STARTS BUCKING LIKE A FREAKING BULL. I READ A BUNCH OF FORUMS ONLINE AND THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE THE ALTERNATOR, BUT I REPLACED THAT AND NO CHANGE. MY NEXT STEP IS DISTRIBUTOR CAP AND ROTOR, AND THE FUEL FILTER AS WELL. ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEAS OF WHAT MY PROBLEM IS?

    not yet, i just replaced the distributor cap and rotor today. that helped a little bit. i drove quite a ways with no problems. i turned around to go home and it started again. but not as bad. Next step is the fuel filter, if that's not the problem then i'm guessing fuel pump. I'm trying to not have to take this to a mechanic yet. I'm broke as hell lol

    I BROUGHT IT INTO THE SHOP AND APPARENTLY IT JUST HAD OLD FUEL IN IT AND I TOLD THE GUY JUST TO REPLACE THE FUEL PUMP IT'S AN EIGHTY EIGHT SO I'M GOING TO NEED ONE EVENTUALLY. AND YEAH I'M AN IDIOT, BUT NO ONE EVER TOLD ME ABOUT FUEL STABALIZER UNTIL AFTER ALL THIS **** SO I HAVE AN EXCUSE. LOL

Low Pressure Oil light comes on


The first thing to check it oil. The next thing to check is the pressure with a well know pressure gauge. The next thing to check is the main bearings for wear. If this is the problem, you will need to see if the vehicle is worth rebuilding an engine for or not.

My 92 88 royal osmobile security light came on and tried both keys wont start dont have alot of money or a dealership in my area what is the best way and cheapest way 2 by pass it


Disconnect the positive termanl on the battery for about 3 min. reconect the battery the computer should be reset. Drive the car for about 30 min. if it takes that long to get to the inspection station then drive there and it should pass as long as the light hasn't come on prior to arriving at inspection station.if so see how long it takes for light to come on go about that far away from inspection station disconnect battery and try again.

My '92 Trooper just started shut off and won't start. i had to clutch start it. It crank vigorously but wont Start . A few wks ago. I stated it and shut it off as I had to do something before I go and it...


i would start by having the starter checked, if you can jump start with the clutch then this tells me its a starter problem,have that starter checked,

Bucking engine


Check the fuel pressure,also change the fuel filter.check the crankshaft sensor,or replace.It sounds more like the tps sensor(throttle position sensor).It is mounted in line with the throttle axle,on the throttle horn.Of course .with out being there and checking I am just guessing.But map sensor or mass air flow sensor could also cause this.Have you checked the air filter?This will cause the problem,if it is stopped up restricting air flow to engine and mass air flow.,map sensor,and vacuums needed to run the car.If I can help,let me know.

I put a 91 engine in to 88 body every thing fit but my engine wont start


Only three possiblities. no gas, no spark, or the timing of the 2. So first follow the full lines and disconnect and turn on the ignition. That will start the full pump. you should see gas flow. Next remove a plug wire and dont hold it but place it near a plug or anything metal on the engine. You should see a spark when cranking the car. Finally its the timming of the two. remove spark plug from number 1 cylinder, with a wrench turn the crank shaft around untill the cylinder comes to top dead center. Look through the spark plug hole you should see the piston top. Now take off the distrbuter cap and look to see which terminal the rotor is touching. follow the wire and make sure it is the same wire that goes to the number 1 cylinder. Of course if the distributor rotor isnt rotating then of course your timing belt is broke. Good Luck.

Service engine soon light comes on and goes off


The service engine soon light comes on for many reasons..it could be as simple as CO2 sensor, or it may just be one of the lights that just stays on, ask your local GM garagre to reset the code for you..maybe cost you a couple bucks.

Wont start unless i put the gas pedal down


too many possibilities without more info..check that carb linkage ok and choke is not stuck...check timing (does it have a labored pattern to cranking rhythm)...one plug/wire or other section of secondary ignition (cap/rotor) could be bad or weak

Bucking, slow acceleration, & shuts off


it can be couple of thing Try a fuel injector cleaner or new fuel injectors.it can be vacuum leak. Engines need a vacuum to run especially at idle which is when your car dies. It could be a stuck EGR.
If the check engine light comes on it will store a code so take it to a shop and pay them to read the codes. This may give you a starting point.
