1997 Isuzu Trooper Problems

Check Transmission Light With Code 37

The check transmission light may illuminate with a stored code 37. This is commonly caused by electrical interference on the data communication circuit between the transmission control module (TCM) and the engine control module (ECM). Our technicians recommend that all related connection and ground locations should be inspected and repaired as necessary. In some cases electromagnetic interference may be the cause, shielding of the affected wiring may be of help it this case.

Rattling noise from timing chain

A rattling type noise may develop from the front of the engine. This is commonly caused by a faulty timing chain tensioner. Replacement of the failed tensioner should correct this concern.

Lack of Power and/or Illumination of the Check Engine Light

A loss of power and/or illumination of the Check Engine Light with associated fault code P0420 may be noted. Our technicians tell us this is generally caused by a failed catalytic converter which will require replacement.

Transmission: after having the car stuck at the machine shop (doing some valve head repairs) which extended for over three months, I've noticed my transmission hesitating when starting (seems like clutch slippage).
