Isuzu Amigo Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the Isuzu Amigo based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
The fuel level sensor may fail resulting in erratic fuel gauge operation and illumination of the Check Engine Light. Replacement of the fuel sender assembly is recommended to correct this concern. A powertrain control module (PCM) software update may be necessary for the updated fuel level sensor to read correctly.
The air conditioner may stop working due to icing up of the evaporator, generally caused but a faulty evaporator thermostat. Replacement of the failed evaporator thermostat will be required to correct this concern.
An oil leak may develop from the distributor shaft. Our technicians tell us that affected distributors will require replacement to correct this concern.
The automatic transmission accumulator cover can leak due to a failed o-ring. Replacing the o-ring and cover will commonly correct this issue.
On certain models contamination of the grease on the gas pedal potentiometer causes the Check Engine light (MIL) to come on and may cause a rough idle. The potentiometer will need to be replaced and adjusted to fix this problem.
Chattering when cornering can occur when the limited slip differential fluid breaks down. Replacing the fluid will repair this issue.
Rear axle seal leaks can be cause by a plugged rear differential vent. Replacing the leaking seal and clearing out the vent will fix this problem.
On some models, the right motor mount cover can hit the chassis and cause a vibration at idle. Replacing the motor mount will repair this issue.
A knocking noise may be noted from the steering column, commonly caused by a faulty steering shaft joint. Replacement of the failed part will be required to correct the condition.
A faulty motor mount may cause a vibration at idle. Our technicians tell us that if the engine is operating to specifications and a vibration is still present revised motor mounts are available which may help with this concern.
