Any way to Fix A 1999 Isuzu Rodeo?



The right side of the engine ONLY has stopped running. Was checked if it was the engine itself taken apart not the engine,Catalytic converter, timing chain, computer was reset, fuses & sensors were checked, electric & gas compression was checked and two weeks with a mechanic and can’t figure it out. This car was bought brand new in May 1999 and was dealership maintained for first 5 years. Does any one know how to fix this problem?


WHAT is the problem? What does, “The right side of the engine ONLY has stopped running” mean? Do you mean the pistons don’t go up and down? Does the right side camshaft not turn? Does the right side not have spark to the spark plugs? Does the right side not get fuel injection action? Is the vacuum, on the right side, very low numbers? Without knowing the problem, can’t posit a solution.


The pistons are going up and down, camshaft turns, spark plugs working, fuel is going to right side and the vacuum is working fine. The mechanics that have worked on this car can not figure it out. With all they have done to it, they say the car should be running, but it is not. If you have any ideas, it would be appreciated.


“Fuel is going to the right side…”. OK, does that mean fuel is going through the fuel injectors? To find out if the fuel injectors are opening, put at least one 'noid light in a disconnected fuel injector electrical connector. Listen for the clicking of the fuel injectors. Touch each fuel injector as the engine is cranking or running. Can you feel the clicks? The red/blue wire branches to every fuel injector. If the red/blue wire is broke to #3 fuel injector, #1, #2, #3 won’t receive power, and won’t run.


Appreciate your help! Did what you suggested and it’s still not running. For now the car will just sit hate to get rid of it after putting all this money into it.
