Tip & How-To about Isuzu Trooper

Time for an Oil Change?


All you Isuzu owners out there, if you know that your Isuzu Petrol or Diesel is ready for a oil change or is coming up for and oil change. Then what I'm about to share and tell you about will save you time, money and not too mention the headaches, in the year or years to come.

This is one little unknown fact has cost and caused millions of people around the world time, money and headaches.

If you don't change your oil and oil filter when you are suppose too, then the engine damage cycle has all ready begun!!!!!!!!!!

Too many people think that just because your motor has oil in it that its ok........WRONG !!!!!!!!
If you are chopping and changing your oil everytime and not sticking to the manufacturers specifications then the engine damage cycle has begun.

So if you want trouble free motoring in regards to problems caused from the lubrication systems then heres a couple of very important things you must consider when you next do a oil change.

1. Make sure you have the correct oil with the correct specifications for your engine model...NOT THE MAKE OF THE VEHICLE !
2. Ensure that your Servicing shop use's a good engine flush, and also if you have a few miles on the clock get them to put in a good engine metal conditioner. This will assist in any worn areas that may give problems later on.
3. If its petrol and you can afford it use a synthetic oil or semi-synthetic, these oils are capable of handling extreme conditions without breaking down their lubrication properties.
4. Use a good brand of oil filter preferebly a Original Manufacturers item that way you know that its doing the job it was intended to do and not just cheap and nasty knock up to make a few cents..

So for those out there who would like to know the oil type specs for this vehicle this is them.

Engine oil type: SG/CC, SG/CD, SG, SF/CC, SF/CD SF, SE/CC, SE/CD or SE engine oil.

So with all that said I hope that all of you who read this tip can put it into action, you will be thanking me, when at 300,000 km the engine is still able to go even if the rest of the vehicle is falling to pieces...

Happy and Safe Motoring everyone..

My 4ja1 Isuzu pick up, fuego , has a smoke or mist coming out in dipstick. I check the breather and it has the same amount of smoke coming out. But every time I checked the level of oil by dip stick,

I take it that this is a diesel engine. The oil you should be using is diesel oil 20w-40 or 50 next there is blowby from the combustion process that is heating the oil in the sump and it is fuming of. If the engine is running well it is not a great problem
If when doing an oil change the oil is thick and heavy and doesn't like to run out then it is a problem as the paraffins in the oil are burning and reducing the oil to tar.and this means engine rebuild.
If it is a petrol engine then you can use diesel oil in it as the only difference is the cleansing additive in the diesel oil. It helps keep a petrol engine clean inside

Why does my Trooper take 30 minutes to warm up before intermittent power surging and panel lights blinking stops?

Need to know more. Is it petrol or diesel. If diesel is it the 3.1 or 3.0. Isuzu changed engines that year (1998) from 3.1 to 3.0 common rail.

no what you do is to add a half litre of diesel to the oil and 3 good squirts of fairy liquid ,got to be fairy and no cheap one.then run vehicle around for a day or so and the noise will stop ,Then change oil and filter and from then on change oil every 5000miles and a oil filter every third oil change ,use a diesel/petrol oil the cheapest you can buy and the diesel /petrol oil will have detergent in it which will keep the inside of the engine clean and prevent clag from forming which is what is causing your hydraulic tappet stick thus making a noise .
