Check your engine mounts especially your front and back ones, cause if your engine mounts are worn then that can cause that!

  • remove screws or nuts and elect plugs.

the gain access varies by car model, sub model and country

  1. open hood, see em?
  2. on some cars there is a undert hood plate that comes
  3. others, look under car at lamp, bingo.
  4. others a fender shell or panel comes off.
  5. and last some cars have to have grill off.

Battery is too low charge, or bad/dirty connections at battery terminals causing voltage drop, or bad starter. Check the easy components first with a volt meter

Check your Fuel Lines and your Fuel Pump. (I just fixed a problem with my 2001 Isuzu Rodeo Fuel Return Line).

Also remember that in Rodeos, as soon as you turn your car key to turn the ignition on (just to make the dashboard lights go on) a certain amount of gasoline gets pumped to your engine in preparation of you turning the key all the way to crank the ignition and start the car. In other words, even before you turn the key all the way to crank the ignition, the Fuel Pump will pump some gasoline through the Fuel Lines to your engine (it will pump the gasoline for about 4 seconds then stop). So when you go to start your Rodeo, remember to turn the key with one continuos motion so that you start the ignition cranking while the gasoline is being actively pumped.

In addition, you should never turn the ignition lights on without turning the key all the way to start the engine. Doing so could cause that bit of gasoline that was pumped to start the engine to just sit there and create problems.

Check you EGR valve, remove and clean up all black carbon deposits, it's probably blocked or sticking

stalls, is the word.
here they all, each takes, simple tests.
  1. battery weak.,and dischaged for 3 possible reasons, 12.6v id good 13.3-15v good running. not less.
  2. A/C compressor seized.
  3. ISC/IAC bad on the engine, idle controls totally dead. RPM low.
  4. Horrid loss of engine power, if car will not move fast , this be it.

i think that is it.

check selector switch, may wires touch each others.

2001 Isuzu Rodeo | Answered on May 09, 2014

your problem may not be electrical at all... have you done fuel
pressure test ? simple things like a blocked fuel filter or pick up, will be trouble starting. also check fuel pressure regulator.

2001 Isuzu Rodeo | Answered on May 05, 2014

most likely it would, the least expensive way to try to fix it is a transmission filter and fluid change. the internal solenoids will start to get a varnish on them if not serviced regularly. I don't know how many miles you have been since the last transmission service or how many miles are on your vehicle. you could ad a cleaner into the transmission to see if that would help, they make stuff designed to clean up varnish buildup.

2001 Isuzu Rodeo | Answered on May 04, 2014

you may have a broken band or a bad solenoid. most parts stores can tell you what the code is did you change trans filter
