engine runs great untill thermostat opens up. then begins to "chug" and loose power to the point it dies. BUT! if you shut the key off (while rolling in neutral) and wait a couple seconds and start the motor again it runs great for a minute or so and does it again. i believe its a vaccume problem of some sort. not sure where to start looking.

Went to a shop to get a diagnostic done on transmission. Ck engine and Ck trans light were on but I felt no slipping. When I went back the guy said it would $780. When I ask why, seeing as I was quoted $85, He said they did a full diagnostic. One, no one asked if that's what I wanted, two I didn't ask for a full diagnostic, I asked for the computer analysis.I ask the differ, and he says with full diagnostic they take trans out and take it completely apart and check each part. I have never heard of this! I haven't paid yet but trying to figure out what to do. If this is a real thing, what would it normally cost? He is now saying to fix it I need a "new converter, new pump, new valve, and Few kits." Claims the converted is busted and caused everything else to be damaged.

99 Amigo 40k miles, never had Auto Trans Fluid Changed or Trans Service..delay in 1st Gear and comes out of gear in 1st as well at times. All other gears are normal and smooth. Any ideas? Maybe just a trans fluid low, need check and service? Electrical something? No lights on dash ever for failures. Any kind of adjustment within Trans to fix? 6cyl Automatic.

Went out to start my truck this morning and it would not crank. Hooked it up to the battery charger and after less than 10 minutes the charger read "fully charged." When I turn the key, my radio and all other features work, however, it won't crank...just a click. The OBD and Passlock sensor lights are illuminated when the key is turned. The only other time I have had an issue with this truck is when getting gas and they didn't close my gas cap.

i have check everything else i can reach and think of to my knowledge.i am not a mechanic but i know a lot about mechanics. and seems ok but i cannot get 4 wheel drive to engage on this 3.0 trooper.the transfer case motor actuator or its wire loom is the problem i think but still not sure cause cant see any further as little space to work with.is there a wiring loom diagram for 3.0 trooper 2001 which shows me where the loom goes from transfer case all the way back to engine and battery ect. with parts labelled or can anyone help me?please

bypass the a/c pump

Then the break light to look under hood and see the belt and small pulley is broken. I just don't no or how much it. will be to fix.

I just replace sparks, plugs, EGR Valve, clean the entire EGR pipes, o2 sensors seems to be ok, the car runs roughtly, and i spot some bubbles at the coolant

I have unlocked it and checked all the doors/hatch to make sure nothing caught in the doors. What is causing this?

I had posted the problems I was having this week and was trying to drive it to shop when it died. Wouldn't start back up. Had tow truck take it to shop and they told me I have a jump time situation. After they looked further into it the shop told me there were some internal parts that were broken and the engine would have to be replaced. They told me it would cost around $5900. They really didn't give me any technical information about exactly what was broken internally. Any suggestions? btw, I am female so I'm used to getting jacked around a little.

1998 Isuzu Amigo. Battery light is on as is check engine light. Hesitates a little when first giving it gas. Ran perfectly then sat for about a week. When I started it up, had these symptoms. Will bring to shop and get diagnostic codes tomorrow. Changed battery, spark plugs, oil and filter today. Not quite as noisy but, this is when I noticed the gas smell in oil.

When I put it in reverse it vibrates and hard to turn wheels

I was driving @ 50 mph when truck locked up.I had to put into 4Wlow to move off of road. Since this occured I have replaced rear differential but problem still remains!! I seem to get 4WhLow and 4WhHigh and 2WhHigh are still locked up. All is smooth in 4WhLow. How do I get other gears back to normal---is it transfer case? Need Help very badly with this !!!!! Thank You in advance!!!

I just changed the water pump, thermostat and temperature switch because I had a leak and was told it was the water pump. I have no leak now but my heat is still not working and neither is my temperature gauge. WHY??? Please help

does the grommet just pop it there?

We have all the bolts out that we can see, and have also disconnected all the electrical connections. The valve cover seems to be stuck on the rear lower side .

I will fill it up and after driving 30 miles the gauge reads empty, the check eng light comes on and then goes off, when driving it bogs down in 5th gear so I need to down shift to get any power. I had read some where that the fuel sensor could be the cause of erratic fuel readings, but what about consumption. Help I love my Trooper and want to get it up and running for the winter.

I have to push the knob in to release the lever several times and often use both hands. Once out of park, the lever moves easily from gear to gear (reverse to drive, etc). Is there an easy remedy, or does this require a mechanic. If it does need to go to the shop, can you give a general estimate of what I should expect to pay?

Thanks so much for your help.

how do i get them out without damaging them? cannot find what to do in the repair manual..

it only rattles when i push the gas???

Evap emissions system leak

just happened this morning could this be due to low transmission fluid

When driving

check engine light is on and shop said it was the sensor

Dash lights work, the fan speed indicator goes all the way up, but the fan never comes on.

I can hardly get to the wires to remove them. I have read to put it on a lift but I have no access to a lift.

type of automatic transmission fluid to use

car lunges forward cannot check fluid on transmission. cannot go faster than 20-30 mph

i have a fault code 23 and it is the MAT sensor. when the car is cold it will run as soon as it gets warm it stops working.
