Isuzu Rodeo Sport ProblemsSoftware update to correct idle speed on cold start
On some models the powertrain control module (PCM) software delays idle speed changes during cold starts causing stalling problems. A software update from Honda will repair this issue.
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.

Isuzu Rodeo Sport RecallsRear Suspension Rust Concern
Road salt can cause excessive corrosion near the forward mounting bracket for the left or right rear suspension lower link. As a result the bracket can come loose from the frame, impacting vehicle handling and increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the affected vehicles. If little or no corrosion is found, the area will be treated with an anti-corrosive compound. If the corrosion has affected the connection between the bracket and the frame a reinforcement bracket will be installed. In very severe cases were a repair is not feasible, Isuzu has a vehicle buy back program in place. All inspections and remedies will be provided free of charge for vehicles that are 10 years old or less. For vehicles older than 10 years, Isuzu will offer a free remedy, but only if the vehicle is presented to an Isuzu service facility dealer within 12 months of when owner notifications were issued, after that time owners will be charged for the repairs.
The affected vehicles may experience excessive corrosion in the area of the forward mounting bracket for the left and right rear suspension lower link. The lower link bracket can become detached from the frame, which can affect vehicle handling and increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the affected area. If little or nor corrosion is found, the area will be treated with an anti-corrosive compound. For vehicles in which corrosion has damaged the rear suspension lower link bracket, a reinforcement bracket will be installed. In the rare event the corrosion is so severe that the reinforcement bracket remedy would not be appropriate, Isuzu will offer to repurchase the vehicle for an amount based on the Kelly Blue Book "private party price." All inspections and remedies will be provided free of charge for vehicles that are ten years old or less. For vehicles older than ten years, Isuzu will offer a free remedy, but only if the vehicle is presented to an Isuzu dealer within 12 months of when owner notifications were issued.
