this is USA forum, and we dont have this car.
IT'S NOT A USA 2002 DIESEL trooper.
that and exact engine, size.
we have, 3 gas engines, 2.2L,3.2. and 3.5L
here. only and books that cover only those 3 engines.
so if a diesel dies.
check fuses.
scan it.
check filters
try test fuel to see if it runs on test fuel
test the glow plugs yet,?

if pump pressure is dead,?
check, power to the pump yet? (fuses are first)

there are 4,.6 and 8cyl. diesels by Isuzu.,
which is it>
they have names.
7 diffr. B engines, 3,xxxx liters.
5 diffr. 4Jxx series engines.
my guess is the engine is.
3.0 L 4JX1 TD I4
3.1 L 4JG2 TD I4

wiki says.
European and Asian buyers could opt for the diesel engine option of the 4JG2 3.1-liter (later superseded by the more problematic 4JX1 3.0-liter of 159 PS or 117 kW)
4jg2 is indirect injected
4jX1 is direct.
apples and orange diffr.! injection classes. '

learn what's under that hood, then fix it?

what country
what engine, real names, not 3L vague-ness. please.

i put a new stereo in my 1998 isuzu trooper now the anti theft wont let car start what do i do

90000Km(60000Miles) or 160000Km(105000Miles) but it all depends on the country and engine operating environment.
If the Isuzu goes off the road regularly, do it sooner.
Best is to inspect the belt before replacement.
I think the engine uses gears to drive the cams and the belt to drive pumps, thus not so critical.

have an accredited service shop to a wet and dry compression test on the engine
That determines engine condition
have the oil pressure checked using a mechanical gauge and if the pressure is below specs that indicates worn bearings overloading the oil control rings
leaks can be rear main seal or crank shaft seal at the front where the oil is blown away in the slip stream

    Run a OBDII/EOBD test to reveal code.

    2002 Isuzu... | Answered on Dec 02, 2016

    you can reset any vehicle code by taking off the negative (black) lead off from battery for 30 minutes. make sure it don't touch anything else. if you have light on go to your local auto parts place and have code checked before hand. resetting light will also reset all codes and delete them. why is the light on?

    on the bottom edge of the panel are 2 or 3 square covers that clips of to reveal the screws . Also the handle and door opener must be unscrewed and removed. If u have manual windows the horse shoe clip behind the winder must be removed first. If its electric windows you will need to carefully pry the switch panel out of the door panel and then check if there are any screws behind it.

    this is a USA forum what country are you in?
    Fuel systems vary by engine, and country, so......?????
    what needs fix'n?

    the word fix has many meanings
    • how to rebuild the pump?
    • time it?
    • how to remove it put back?
    • how to bleed it.
    • and on and on... or a lift pump or ?
    try to say what you are doing "the job" and why,
    or if not a job, must be diagnosing it, ?
    say , im trying to test it or. what ever you doing.
    we cant guess, what fix means.
    Diagnosing direct injection?

    The 4JX1 is a 3.0 L direct injection diesel engine, turbo, some intercooled, which replaced the 4JG2 in the Isuzu Bighorn/Trooper/Holden Jackaroo.
    It uses unit injectors and 4 valves per cylinder.

    European and Asian buyers could opt for the diesel.

    see we dont have this.
    troopers are sold in Asia too, but not here with diesel.
