Isuzu Pickup Problems
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.
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.

Bought this truck in 2006 with 178k on it. Needed something to run around in. Truck now has 308k and is still going strong. Gets about 27 mpg. Have replaced the throwout bearing, pilot bewaring and clutch in trann. Replaced fuel pump and A/C compressor (clutch on that was failing and A/C still blows cold!). Windshield washer pump has failed (not replaced). Fixing to replace the timing belt and front main seal. Truck still starts and runs great though a bit rough looking, it's been very reliable and I'll drive it till it falls apart and maybe then some. Been very happy with it.
Had a 1985 with 150,000 miles. Bought the 1995 used in 2003 with 95,000 miles. It now has 185,000, changed the radiator 3 times, brakes once, O2 sensor twice, blower motor, windshield pump motor, otherwise it starts up every day, gets up to 30 MPG. Not nice to look at but very reliable.
