2001 Isuzu Rodeo Problems

Drive Train -- Verified

Chattering when cornering can occur when the limited slip differential fluid breaks down. Replacing the fluid will repair this issue.

Engine -- Verified

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.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

Certain models may have a vibration issue at highway speeds that could be due to uneven tire pressures, tire rim out of specs, wheels out of balance, AC compressor bracket bolts not torqued correctly, misalignment of the steering shaft coupler, improper ride height, or wheel alignment out of adjustment. A qualified technician is needed to sort out these problems and correct them.

Drive Train -- Verified

The automatic transmission accumulator cover can leak due to a failed o-ring. Replacing the o-ring and cover will commonly correct this issue.

Drive Train -- Verified

Rear axle seal leaks can be cause by a plugged rear differential vent. Replacing the leaking seal and clearing out the vent will fix this problem.

my 2001 isuzu rodeo has 117 000 miles on it
Since 2006 or so, the check engine light started turn it on and then while i was driving the redcued power light came on too and the truck came to a limp mode or so. The car had no power and coul not accelerate. I've been visiting almost every auto shop to find a solution. One guy told me to replace the computer, but i have not been able to find one, and since I am not sure that this is the solution, I do not wanna wate money. I did replace the throthle body for one i got in a junkyard, but no luck (maybe that body was not working neither). Another guy told me to replace all the wiring. I HAVE checked a LOT of times, with experts, the wiring, and all wires seem to be ok, not damaged. The battery is kind of old and there is some green substance on the terminals (especially the negative one). I have done a lot of research for the past, 4 years, but i haven ´t had any luck, plus i live in mexico, so there arent many experts to know whats the problem with my truck. I bought this trucl on Southern California, on 2005, and I really need help!!!

I bought my 2001 Rodeo brand new and it now has 200,000+ miles on it. I love this car! It has been very reliable and has needed no major repairs. After time, the power window switch went out and the AC needed to be replaced - very understandable that these things needed replacing. It has been very reliable and a joy to drive. The exterior paint has held up remarkably well considering this car has never been kept in a garage. I'm sad that the Rodeo is no longer available in the US for purchase.
