Question about Isuzu i-280

Open Question

I have an Isuzu KB 250D double cab - 1995 model. When the vehicle starts from cold status it does not retain idling speed and then loses power and cuts out. Even by setting the idling speed manually does not help as the problem still persists. However, when the vehicle is warm or later in the day , there is no problem provided the vehicle is allowed to warm up properly. The main problem is first thing in the morning after it has been standing all night. What would cause this and how do I fix it?

SOURCE: Isuzu 1997 KB 260 Workshop Manual

try or your local parts store for a Haynes manual.  For around $20 they are frequently as good or better for home mechanic than factory manuals for $100.

2008 Isuzu dtec d/cab. As soon as I start it have to start it again. When rev'ed up to 2000 RPM, take foot of pedal it dies. After service, it will be fine for a while then it starts again.

is this a KB truck, if yes, where?, we dont have
last USA ISUZU is jan 2009 D-teq right? (not dtec)
is this one? the 3.0L? 2.5? what/?
4JK1 engine? what? or 4JJ1?????????????
is this just a cold start question? or hot engine too.?
Dteq means diesel. can we know size of engine, and country?
so do you have full engine power, even on hills??????
and can you save the stall with fast right foot, easy?
does start easy and run easy hot, or just cold is problem?????
cant guess that, nop...
so what causes stalls.
well over 50 reasons.
idle controls bad, or bad efi sensors or bad engine, 1,2,3.
if cold starts problems check glow plugs.
low engine compression?
what does service mean, name parts changed. filters?
is it turbo diesel?
which engine, we can never guess,?
bad fuel>?

I have a 1995 dodge dakota 4 cyl. and standerd trans. I just replaced the head gasket and it starts and runs great when it is cold but after running for a few min. it stumbles and has low power, it will...

have you done a back pressure test on the catalytic convertor? may have become clogged when the headgasket gave up. normally acts up after vehicle warms up and doesn't set an engine code.

When I start my 1995 Isuzu Pup its idel is really low why?

You may have a dirty throttle valve and idle speed control valve, it is common on older systems, to clean the system that holds the idle speed up cold do the following:

To correct this problem Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (it is made by CRC) from the local auto parts store, NEVER USE CARB CLEANING SPRAY, IT DESTROYS THE ANTI-STICK TEFLON COATING, spray it into the air intake through the throttle body of the engine until you have used about half the can, you will need to hold the idle up while you do this, it will try to stall, after this shut the engine down and disconnect the Negative (-) battery cable for 5 minutes. The intake is now clean, if you continue to have the idle speed control problems you may need to seek the help of a professional.
