Installing 3" Suspension lift on Isuzu rodeo back in 1997 - old times :)
THis video probably has no point to most viewers... it's more for some close friends to go back in time to see how 'we use to be'. All of us no longer look the way we do in this video. besides looks, the jokes, and the way we were has changed... so this video is just a good memorie video. There will be others like this to come.
But... if you are thinking about lifting your Isuzu rodeo shoot me a comment or mail, i also have a video of the body lift that eventually i'll come accross. i can make a full lift video only.
Note, Chuck, the lift installer, appears a few times riding a 80's Ninja. this was his first bike and the new beggining that he didn't know of at the time. Chuck got into superbike racing, and now orks at H&B MACHINES, a bike shop located in Trenton NJ, that customizes all sorts of bikes.
This video might bring some old memories back... the roots!!!
As for me, the Rodeo lasted me 13 years with 197,000 miles. engine never broke and i changed the oil every 5 to 10,000 miles. never changed the timing chain and the only thing that went bad on it, was the rear axle (3 times). this was due to the oversize tires. For Chevy fans, the 91 and 92 Rodeo came with the Chevy Blazer 3.1 V6 engine (GM)... so i'm surprised it lasted this long... i sold the truck and ran fine... never saw it again.
Enjoy, and comment away.
EGR Valve & Tube Cleaning - 2001 Isuzu Rodeo
This video illustrates the method I used to remove, clean, and replace the
EGR valve and tube on my 2001 Isuzu Rodeo. I was having problems with the
check engine light coming on, and each time the code was related to
insufficient flow from the EGR valve. In another video, I show how to
clean the EGR valve itself. In this video, I go one step farther and clean
the tube that connects the EGR valve to the air intake. Since performing
this cleaning about 6 months ago, my check engine light has stayed off.
I am obviously not a professional mechanic. I am just someone that likes
to try to take on small repairs myself, and I have been greatly aided by
other helpful videos on YouTube. My goal in posting these videos is to try
to return the favor and help someone that may have encountered one of the
same problems that I have. I'm sure there are better, more efficient ways
to do things, and I am certainly open to constructive criticism. However,
I hope that in some way my videos will be helpful
Thank you for watching!

Axle Replacement 1 of 4- 1995 Isuzu Rodeo
Video 1 of 4- Removing the Rotor
In this video series I will be repairing a 1995 Isuzu Rodeo front driver
side axle- This is a 4x4 v6 rodeo.
If you're hearing a popping, grinding, or clanking noise while turning it
is probably your CV joint going out.
I didn't want to spend $750 to have someone else replace this axle when it
only cost me about $155 to do it myself. That price includes then specialty
tools I had to buy. I ended up replacing both front axles for about $215.
I figured I saved about $1300 doing the repairs myself.

Isuzu Rodeo with 4FG1 2.4 liter Diesel engine
This is an 1998 Isuzu Rodeo with a 1990 4FG1 2.4 liter Diesel engine. I'm
looking for a head gasket, but the engine belongs in a Fargo Van, which
were only sold in Asia and Australia. It's next to impossible to find
