Isuzu Rodeo: I HAVE A 1994 Isuzu Rodeo and it just went dead

This answer was rated:

I HAVE A 1994 Isuzu Rodeo and it just went dead and it wants to run but only for a few seconds and then goes dead again. Thought it was the fuel pump but it still won't run.
Could this be the injector modular and if so where could I find a good used or a new one
without paying an extreme price for one. I sure hope you can help me out.

tims auto repair :

hi


 

tims auto repair :

please explain


 

tims auto repair :

how did this problem first begin?


 

tims auto repair :

what engine do you have?


 

Customer:

I pulled up to a red light Thursday afternoon and when I started to proceed through the stop light it went dead and would not crank. Would turn over and would run a few seconds when sprayed with carb cleaner. Was told it was the fuel pump. Fuel pump is working but still won't run.

Customer:

I have a six cyclinder engine

tims auto repair :

ok


 

tims auto repair :

will it start now with starting fluid?


 

Customer:

just for a few seconds and then it will go dead again

tims auto repair :

ok


 

tims auto repair :

and you have fuel pressure at the rail


 

tims auto repair :

?


 

Customer:

does this vechile have what they call a fuel modular?

Customer:

don't know

tims auto repair :

the fuel pump is the fuelmodule


 

tims auto repair :

so,,the fuelpump does run,,,correct


 

Customer:

oh okay . The fuel pump was taken off. had to lower the gas tank to get to it and it was pumping.

tims auto repair :

ok


 

tims auto repair :

you need to check for an injector pulse


 

tims auto repair :

the injectors should pulse when the engine is turning


 

Customer:

what is that and how do I do that?

tims auto repair :

you need a noid light


 

tims auto repair :

you unplug an injector wire,,and plug it up to the noid light,,then turn the engine


 

tims auto repair :

the light sho


uld flash

tims auto repair :

i would think that sense you have fuel pressure


 

tims auto repair :

that you dont have an injector pulse


 

tims auto repair :

this can be caused by one of two things


 

tims auto repair :

1-the crank sensor


 

tims auto repair :

2-the ignition module
