Isuzu Rodeo - Intake Manifold Removal - Part 3
This video is part of a series in which I remove the fuel rail and air
intake manifold from my 2001 Isuzu Rodeo to diagnose a cylinder misfire
issue I was having. This particular video demonstrates some of the steps
required to remove the intake manifold, as well as details a surprise I
found when I got it removed. I also briefly show how to remove the timing
cover and valve cover. In other videos related to this series, I also show
how to replace the fuel pressure regulator, fuel injector O-rings, as well
as remove and replace the thermostat.
I am not a professional mechanic. Rather, I am someone who enjoys
attempting to make repairs on my own before I fork out money to a mechanic.
I have been greatly aided by others' YouTube videos, as well as some very
resourceful websites and forums, so this is my way of trying to "pay it
forward" for all of the help I have received.
Please attempt all repairs with caution and at your own risk, and work only
to the extent of your own ability.
Thanks for watching!

A tour of my 1996 Isuzu Rodeo 4x4 with Calmini lift
I grabbed the camera and got some video of the rig. I have been pondering
selling or trading this for a smaller fuel efficient car for my new 100
mile daily commute.

Isuzu versus Consumer Reports
Isuzu's defense of the Trooper SUV (and Honda's Acura SLX model) against
Consumer Reports Magazine's claim that this vehicle is more dangerous (more
prone to roll over) during emergency maneuvers than comparable vehicles.
Two other car manufacturers (Suzuki with their Samurai, Sierra, and Jimny,
and Mitsubishi with their Montero and Pajero) faced similar disparaging
reviews from Consumer's Union's tactics to increase magazine sales revenue.
