1994 Isuzu Rodeo Problems
On the V-6 engine, oil in the spark plug tubes can cause a misfire. Resealing the tubes as part of replacement of the valve cover gasket and replacing the spark plug wires will commonly repair this issue. On newer models the misfire can result in illumination of the Check Engine Light.
A ticking noise may be noted from the engine valve train area. This is commonly caused by varnish build up in the hydraulic lash adjusters (HLA). Our technicians tell us that using Mobil 1 synthetic oil has been successful in cleaning the varnish deposits and quieting the lifter noise.
A worn vehicle speed sensor driven gear can cause the speedometer not to work. Replacing the worn out speed sensor should correct this concern.
Varnish build up in the engine can cause one or more hydraulic lash adjusters to stick and cause a ticking noise in the engine. The noisy hydraulic lifter will need to be located and cleaned to stop the noise.

1994 Isuzu Rodeo Reviews
I've spent about a grand on trying to get it to run right. It only has 70K on it but has the lifter tick that you hear from most of them. Also the intermitent rough idle issue that I hear everyone bitching about. This little nigga is driving me crazy, sometimes I wish someone would piledrive me(or the Rodeo)and put one or both of us out of our misery. LOL
bought my Isuzu from a friend six years ago with 164,000 miles ...after first oil change it sounded like lifter chatter ...drove it now and then always runs great but always chattered..now has 181,000 miles love the vechile but embarassed with the chatter at any engine speed under 2000 rpms .. have tried all kinds of fixes outside of taking engine apart...I love the size , room and road feel driving gets over 20 mpg with the 3.2 v6 , uses next to no oil ..been excellent outside of being a noisy driver, excellent freeway driver ..until you stop at a light ..LOL..would love to replace engine but its not worth it ?
