Don't see how a water pump has anything to
do with losing power

The water pump could be bad, and there never
was any clear understanding of the drivability

Most people don't know what to tell a repair
shop, and the shops have a bad habit of not
spending time asking enough questions

They almost never road test a vehicle with the
owner present

In the past, I would never accept a vehicle, without
a road test, where the owner drove & we spent 20 min
or more gathering past vehicle history

At first, the light to let me know about the air in the tires turned on, and after a couple od days I took it to the car dealer where I bought it..The tires were check and was told that the light will turn...

contact the place where the tire was changed and let them know that they damaged the TPMS sensors. If they have a grain of integrity, they'll make it right.

My 99 cadillac deville ran hot about 8 months ago i took it to the dealer thay told me that i need a new engine and to drive it for a couple days and see what happen i have been driving it for eight months...

If you have no obvious external coolant leaks then the most likely culprits would be leaking head gaskets or warped heads. I would take the car to an engine rebuilding shop and get a second opinion to the dealer, not to say that they are wrong, but your engine may be salvageable at a cheaper cost and those guys would be better positioned to tell you that. Hope this helps.

01 Isuzu Rodeo LS loses acceleration after running for a while

This is a complex problem.

Do you have any repair record of the Rodeo LS?

When is the last

ignition module change?

fuel pump change?

fuel filter change?

DO YOU TOP OFF during gas refuel?

Are you able to get the OBD-II codes off the ECU?


I will check fuel rail pressure first to rule out the fuel pump

add Chervon fuel injector clear and fill gas to above 1/2 tank

locate the ignition module and apply GOOD amount of white lithium grease to help it from over heat.

When the truck stall again check the temperature of gauage......Engine should be below 195F

Let the module cool and see does it ran well again.

Good luck

Battery losing power while key is in car

Unfortunately, this is true. this new hybrid technology is very fresh and we are still finding these things out. If the key is in the ignition, it will drain the battery. there are shift solenoids in the transmission that are controlled by the battery. if the batt is dead, you will not be able to shift at all.
