2008 Isuzu i290 Pickup QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Front seal leak in my 2.9 liter engine Lucas Oil within 2 days. Vehicle only has 82800 miles
it happens when the diesel is low
Engine is stalling and regaining power continually, feels like it is running out of fuel. Would assume the fuel filter needs to be replaced.
I just had the engine replaced two days ago. And am having the same problem as with the old engine. Took truck into dealer back in Oct. of 2010. Reduce power light came on and was only able to drive about 15 miles/hr. While driving or idle the engine would just kill. When I took it into the dealer, all they did was change the cam actuator. 5 months later the engine killed.
Had a new engine put in and just picked up the truck on Saturday April 28. Yesterday while driving the check engine light started blinking and the pwr reduced to 15 miles again and then then truck stalled. Today the dealer called and said that they are getting at least 15 different codes but they all seem to point to the camshaft cranks.
Is there a known defect in this type of vehicle? What or is there any solutions. I just shelled out $4,000 for an engine and am experiencing the same issue as with the old one. I need some serious advise, PLEASE.
I get 20-21 mpg on average with varying loads all throughout the non-winter months. Winter & cold temps lower this to 16-17. This is consistant. Why is there such a drop-off in fuel economy? I've been told it should be around 10% due to fuel additives, etc.
I also have intermittant extended start-up cranking at various times with some loud muffler vibration at times too. The CT dealership I purchased from does not handle warrantee work any longer and never were very helpful so I'm looking for a local factory authorized service center if anyone cares to recommend one.
where is the evap solenoid located on the Isuzu I-290?
