The Isuzu 3.5's all burn about 1 quart between oil changes. It was an engineering flaw with that model engine. Some people have said that running full synthetic oil will correct the problem over time. Either way, it is extremely important that you check your oil regularly.
As for you second question: Torque on demand has at its heart wheel speed sensors which typically are the issue. Having a wheel speed sensor replaced will set you back about $300.
While driving, apply the foot brake and press the 4x4 button. If it engages, it can be bad auto locking hubs, or a bad torque converter. This is the same problem I am having right now but I was able to the get the 4x4 to work by doing what I described above. I am going to take off the wheels and check the hubs and eventually work toward the torque converter. I'll keep you updated.
sounds like a sensor - when did it start - if just cranked up one day and bam it is there - sounds like either a brake wear indicator issue - if they are connected in those - or a fluid level change in the rear end or transfer case - look for leaks and check the brake pads or shoes
It is Torque On Demand. When you are stopped there is no need for
the front end to be engaged, no demand. Once you start moving, the lights should begin working as the demand for four wheel drive engagement increases, if the conditions require four wheel drive.
It's the way the system works.
not transfer case motor....there is none on a rodeo....trooper has torque on demand.....rodeo problem is likely shift on fly mtr...mounted on front axle....if u dont use 4wd regularly it sticks and gets stuck.
Take it apart in the order you see you need some snap ring pliers for item #4 . Take off #7 and the rest of the parts. Seperate the hubs from the Rotors (it may need to go to a machine shop fort this operation) When you reassemble make sure that one of the holes in # 7 line up perfectly with a threaded hole in #8
Make sure you get the wheel bearings tight but not too tight and Grease them properly with the prooper Lube recommeded by Izuzu.
Hand TORQUE the wheel lug nuts as Izuzu has a BIG BIG Problem with wheel lugs stripping USE A TORQUE WRENC
