Engine Q&A 1997 Isuzu Rodeo

  • Why does the check engine light come on when I start my Rodeo? It's okay if your check engine light comes on when you first start your vehicle. It’s just your Rodeo firing up its circuits. The light should turn off in a bit, but come see us if it doesn't.
  • Why does my Isuzu engine sound different? Strange under-the-hood noises can point to problems within your Isuzu Rodeo engine. Tapping or knocking could mean you need an oil change. Whistling sounds could mean you have an intake leak or misaligned belt. Squealing can indicate a loose fan belt, and grinding could be a sign that something is wrong with your brakes — not the engine.
  • What could damage a Isuzu engine? [ordered-list-1-item-3-1]Are you unknowingly damaging your Isuzu Rodeo engine? Certain driving habits can damage your engine and should be avoided. These habits include 'running on fumes,' revving your engine while the vehicle is in Park, or accelerating too quickly, too soon. Help sustain your engine’s performance and efficiency by staying miles away from these bad driving practices.
  • Can I put water in my Isuzu Rodeo radiator? An emergency is the only time you should consider putting water in your radiator. Outside of that, it’s recommended you use a pre-mixed coolant or a 50/50 blend of water and coolant.
