Crack down the center of what I believe is the exhaust or intake manifold

while driving my engine started making a loud tapping noise ( I would say knocking but I know what a rod knock sounds like and it wasn't that ). when I went to parkit , it started running really ruff. checked tining belt and it was missing a few teeth so I replaced it but still made the raddling noise when accelerating and ran a lil rough untill warmed up. checked for collapsed lifer and the all seemed ok. did compression test and one cylinder had no compression other one had low compression and other two were fine. so took off head had it resurface because was told there was an area that was rough or something. I believe it leeked oil out of that area. checked valves to see if they needed seeding but seemed ok, and now in the process of putting back together. could a blown head gasket havemade the rattling or tapping noise. . thanks for any info u may be able to give me...dimndi48@aol.com

Im told the engine is turning over, but to me it doesnt sound like its catching. I just had the starter replaced, but no luck. Is this a common problem? What am I missing?

that hurts the eye

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.

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.

Occurs during driving

Happened while the car was in use. Thermostat read exactly halfway between H and C...

Fuel filter on vehicle location

It feels like something shifts its position just as the car stops...then shifts position again just as I start moving again. It's not something in the car, but under rear end, it feels.

I bought this car not running and was told the computer is bad. I want to be sure that is not a bad ground or fuel pump. I checked the fuses, the fuel pump does not come on with the key. I also tried some starting fluid and it made no difference.

it does it all the time and when you are driving it also goes up higher and you have to tap the gas pedal to bring the idle back down.

seems it would be easier to separate the head from the intake on the bench instead of fighting it in the car. can the intake and head come out of the car as one unit? thanks.

light flashes and gauge goes up and down

Hello, I have a 1998 Isuzu amigo 2.2 dohc. My question is how can I test my coil pack. Before I make the decision to just replace it. It has a very weak spark when i crank it over. So is there a way I can test it with my ohm meter or take it to a dealership to have it tested. Car is giving me horrible performance

I want to change the distributor on a 94 Amigo with out having to use a timing gun. how do i do that? and which one is spark plug one? thank you

I had recently replaced the fuel filter and fuel pump on my 93 amigo, 2.6l. The engine will run for about 30 seconds and stop, not starting at all after that. If I let it sit for awhile it will do the same thing. Any help would be appreciated. It hasn't jumped timing, it runs perfectly for about 30 second. I can push the accelerator and it will tach up normally, idle normally then cut out. The relay is good, don't know what could be wrong.

My repair with tax cost me $474.28. Was I charged too much?

car starts and idles fine.When shifting to reverse or drive,idle drops almost instantly,sometimes even stalls.doesn't do it all the time.

I have an 88 isuzu i-mark that is having problems with idling. it starts fine, but when i press on the gas pedal the throttle will stick and when i let off of the pedal it will stick for a moment and then the throttle falls until the car dies. i'm thinking its the fast idle control device, but am not sure. please let me know if you have any ideas of what the problem is

my 1990 isuzu amigo needs a new transfer case but i dont know what case i have and if rodeos, troopers with the 2.6 4 cylinder engine will work in my amigo

clutch pedal soft and clutch makes chirping noise when pedal is pushed in

the sending unit in the tank accessable w/o removing tank

this vehicle had a cam pulley bolt to break causing the engine to jump time. The head was damaged but the pistons look great. New remanufactured head installed. New crankshaft position sensor, new coil, new fuel pump all installed. Engine turns but will not start. Could the knock sensor have been damaged? Would that cause it not to start? There are no codes. All fuses have been checked.
