2003 Isuzu Rodeo Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 2003 Isuzu Rodeo based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
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.
A knocking noise may develop when turning the steering wheel. Our technicians tell us a repair kit for the steering column is available to correct this concern.
ON 4WD vehicles faulty vacuum solenoid valves can cause the four wheel drive light to stay on all the time. Replacing the valves and possibly the wire harness is needed for this repair.
Chattering when cornering can occur when the limited slip differential fluid breaks down. Replacing the fluid will repair this issue.
