needing new brakes, but otherwise all good on car

Purchased this vehicle over this past weekend man tells us that it has weak battery shows dated 2005 ok. 1999 Isuzu Truck Rodeo 4WD 3.2L MFI DOHC 6cyl; we try to drive home and wow stops running. Check battery 11.4volts. ok in a pickle, head to closet auto zone and change batteries. New battery. wow car runs for an hour. same problem. Not the battery. Charged the battery and then replaced the alternator. I assumed my problem was solved. An hour later I'm in a fix again. Next solution; buddy tells me is that it is the computer, so here I charge battery and get a replacement computer. I give up. same problem.. car does not stay running. Now I need to reach out for help.

After my Uncle and cousin checked my fluids and put oil. On the way home white smoke kept coming out from my exhaust and under my front end. I just understand, my engine runs strong. No check oil/engine lights came on, no overheating or oil excess found under the rodeo where I park it every night. Anyways, my question pertains to what my Uncle and cousin have as their theory but unsure because they normally work on Nissans and fords....I hope I explained clear enough, thank you for your help!

I'm experiencing engine oil getting on exhaust pipes-causing burnt oil smell. Oil is also getting on alternator. I've replaced valve cover gaskets which has cut down on oil leaks but still have leaking problem. I now suspect possible leak from oil pump located on front of engine. How difficult is it to rebuild oil pump?

i had my valve cover gasket replaced at around 110,000 miles, leaking. replacement gasket leaked oil from rear of passenger side(right) valve cover. replaced gasket 8,000~ miles later, seemed to fix leak. 8,000~ miles later, leaking again, rear of right valve cover. replace cover? check for warp-age? sell truck?

when accelerating from a stop, the volt needle drops from about 14v+ down to 12v in first, third and fifth. it returns to 14v+ on second and fourth shifts. it gradually returns to 14v+ in fifth when cruising. if I punch it to go around slower traffic, voltage drops to 12v. but with headlights on, voltage stays constant. one dealer and three shops have worked on the truck, but can't find a problem. any ideas?

start up and run.

I turn the key and get a ticking sound but then turn the key again and it will start! And once it is started the brake and battery light will flicker!

compressor interchangeable from 1997 izuzu rodeo v6 automatic to a 1994 4 cylender straight drive?

I just replace the engine a few month's ago an it was runing fine until a yesterday now it's runing like it has a leak somewere an it's runimg rough in all gears.

Can please someone see if they can send me information regarding the replacement of an ECM for a 1998 Isuzu Rodeo LS with a 3.2 liter engine. The issue seem to have gone like this: I broke down with my car then I had to change the alternator I end up putting a higher amperage alternator from 60 to 70 amps then the rest is history. At the begining it responded well didn't notice anything unusual even after I tested for voltage and amperage; it was all within range then reality sunk in the next day the battery was dead and I bought another battery and to my dismay it was dead again. So I put in a kill switch in the meantime and I left it like that for a while since it's my spare car I was hoping that perhaps I'd make it thru the next winter. So I was kind of disapointed with this alternator and was ready to replace it with another more less amperage so that perhaps the computer would overreact since I was getting different scenarions like as soon as I'd put the main switch and some of the dash lights would go on but they would go off as soon as the car would start and so on. Another issue that perhaps made me realized that I needed to do something was that on ocassion some of the other lights like ABS and Battery lights or Engine would also go on and they soon would also go off but more whenever I would try to accelerate so finally on one of my very few rides around the block to get milk I finally broke down luckily almost infront of my house but not before it was acting like it was loosing power and at times it was kind of doing the same thing. So I guess that I responded a bit too late and today I need another ECM for my car or otherwise I won't be able to drive my car witch has cost me the cost of the car a couple of times over the real value of this car .. Please help with ECM I know I need one because the ECM fuse keeps blowing and I smell smoke from the inside of the car and when I checked the ECM surely enough there was a burned component to the electronic board So a couple of questions before I leave can the ECM electronic board be fix or is it better to just try to replace it with a used one or are there better solutions to this dilema. Txs for your kind response if you have an idea of what I meant but furthermore a solution to this problem would be appreciated. My name is Archie and you can E-mail me at looking forward for some meaningful answers to this pain in the potcket issue.

No interior lights windows dont work. Or back gate dont open

I have had fuses checked 2 times and they are all good . what do I do now. I cant drive at night due to no baack lights

The gauge reacts immediately like there is a short somewhere. How do I determine if the problem is the gauge or the engine sensor?

alternator replaced 6 months ago this has been an ongoing issue before alternator was replaced.

car runs good but sometimes the dash light say power reduce and my rodeo runs very slow ,looses power on the pedal even if I press all a way down ,wee change the sensors already(sensor under pedals,sensor on top of motor and nothing.
