Isuzu Trooper Problems

Excessive Engine Oil Consumption

Lack of oil changes can cause the piston rings to become clogged with debris resulting in excess oil consumption. Severe engine damage may result if the oil level gets to low. Engine dis-assembly may be required to clean or replace the piston rings. Our technicians recommend proper maintenance to try and avoid this expensive repair.

Engine Oil Leak From Front Crankshaft Seal

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.

Engine oil leak due to missing camshaft plug

A severe engine oil leak may be the result of one or more of the camshaft plugs falling out of the cylinder head. The is most likely to occur in cold climates and is caused by the expansion and contraction of the cylinder head. There is a cam plug retaining kit available to secure new cam plugs in place.

Isuzu Trooper Reviews

very good vehicle. i don't regret buying it(used for 1800 bucks. I would do it again). great 4wd, beast in snow(with all-season tires); but... gas mileage stinks(avg 15mpg); expect to have to replace a lot of wear parts(mine were mostly the originals) starting at about 170,000. if you get one, be sure to get the thing completely lubed(inc front bearings packed), and probably timing belt replace...
