Isuzu Pickup Problems

Coolant Leak From Heater Core

The heater core may leak coolant, excess coolant loss can result in engine overheating. Our technicians tell us a revised, copper heater is available to replace the original aluminum one.

Engine Oil Leak From Front Crankshaft Seal

Some engines may develop an oil leak at the front of the engine, the source is commonly the front crankshaft oil seal. Our technicians tell us a revised front oil seal retainer gasket is available to correct this concern.

Squeak Type Noise From the Steering Column When Turning

A squeak type noise may be noted from the steering column when turning. This is commonly due to lack of lubrication of the steering column joint. Removing and re-lubing the joint should correct this concern.
