2002 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.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

The fuel level sensor may fail resulting in erratic fuel gauge operation and illumination of the Check Engine Light. Replacement of the fuel sender assembly is recommended to correct this concern. A powertrain control module (PCM) software update may be necessary for the updated fuel level sensor to read correctly.

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.

2002 Isuzu Rodeo Reviews

I purchased my 2002 Isuzu new. It is a money pit and with all the costly repairs I could be driving a really nice car. At this point I have put so much money in it I just have to pray that it might get me thru a little longer. Don't buy Isuzu...it is the worst car I have ever owned. I have always taken very good car of my cars and the upkeep but this one is about to put me in the poor house. DON'T BUY AN ISUZU!
