1996 Isuzu Trooper Problems

Engine -- Verified

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.

Drive Train -- Verified

The 4WD indicator may say on in 2WD mode due to a faulty vacuum solenoid or valve. All 4WD vacuum hoses, solenoids, and valves should be inspected and repaired or replaced as necessary to correct this concern.

1996 Isuzu Trooper Reviews

Two problems in 15 years. Love it !! Only 1 dealer in North America that I know of. I got my muffler from them well in advance of needing it. Will put it on this fall and hope that's it for the next 15 years.

Best and most reliable vehicle I have ever owned. 1996 model purchased new in 1997, 130k miles, still has original brakes and clutch. All I have had to replace are the shocks, starter, battery, and timing belt. After lots of rough-road driving in the desert, especially Death Valley, it still has no rattles and everything still works.

I wish they kept the same engine and drive train in the 98 and newer troopers. All the
problems don't occur in the 1997 and earlier.
When this trooper rusts out I will be forced to go back to the newer Rodeo (same motor) just not as roomy and less quality. Isuzu
makes trucks here as well as SUV's in Asia.
I wonder if I should move to Thailand?
