    I am not sure if it is exactly the same, however for what it's worth... my amigo was stalling out while driving usually when I am going 65 and have to slow down to 25 in about a mile entering a town where I live. I can easily restart while car is rolling. This happen at the same spot for a few days and I finally got it checked, they said it was my air sensor, and it would cost me about $200 to fix, and yes my check engine light kicked on and would stay on even after the car was going. They gave me the paperwork of the dignostic test and I looked up the numbers on the computer and that's what it was indeed. Hope it helps.

SOURCE: thermostat on 1998 Isuzu Amigo

Yes, It's under the intake manifold. The manifold would need to be removed Lower hose from radiator is attached to steel pipe leading to it. It will not be an easy mission,and the new thermostat is rated for I believe 170 degrees. That's not much help to keep the interior warm with a rag top when it's 20 below zero.

You can boost the heating level by adding vinyl cover over the front portion of grill. Any boat interior shop has the material. Modify any large air leaks. Use the fan to keep fresh air filling vehicle, not recirculate.

SOURCE: 1998 amigo timing 2.2 liter

The timing marks on the cam shaft sprockets are easily to see when you get the timing cover off. When the two cam shafts are lined up (pretty much at the top), then the crank should be almost down at the bottom.
Get yourself a good shop repair manual - I got mine from E-Bay for less than $15.00 (used).
Also, if your going to change the timing belt, have the water pump replaces at the same time.

SOURCE: looking to buy a 1998 isuzu trooper but the check engine light is on. should i buy anyway

Remove cover from the relay and fuse box under the hood. Find the fuse for the ECM and remove. Wait 20mins and replace. If the light comes on again see a mechanic. I've had this problem over about 10 years and it is only a false alarm. If the problem persists see a mechanic. DO NOT TRY TO USE ANY CAR BATTERY POWERED DEVICE IN THE CAR UNTIL THE FUSE IS REPLACED

SOURCE: Adding freon to 98 Isuzu Amigo

You need to add the freon on the low side which is usually indicated by a blue cap. The red cap is the high side port. Never add freon using the high side port. Typically if you are buying a guage set from your local auto parts store, it will only attach to the low side service port because they are diffent types of connections. Another easy way to tell is to turn your AC on and feel the lines that the ports are attached to. The low side should be cold/cool and the high side will be hot.

What would make a Isuzu amigo to suck to much air, and idle high?

You need to check the coil packs, O2 or to lower the idle by loosening nut on back of jets and adjusting screw until idle is set as low as you want it but I would suggest 5-7 MPH. Tighten nut to lock in screw. This is a mechanic's cheater adjustment that takes less then 2 minutes to do.

in all fuel injected cars you do not adjust idle. All you can do is clean the throttle and replace the Idle Air Control valve and check data thru a scanner to see if any sensors are out of specs. If this car has a maf sensor in the air filter tube it could become contaminated and cleaning or replacemnet will allow it to see more air which in turn allows the computer to add more fuel for better idling and accelration.
