2001 Isuzu Trooper cuts out and dies while driving diagnostics not helpful.
2001 Isuzu Trooper Limited cuts out and all gauge lights come on as it starts to die. If we keep giving it gas it will keep running sometimes. When it dies completely while driving we can restart in Neutral. We had Firestone do a diagnostic on it, they had it on the rack for 1 ½ days and said they checked everything and could not find the problem so it must be the Computer and that we should take it to an Isuzu dealer to heck and fix the Computer problem. The Isuzu dealer in St. Peters, MO. Said that they tested the Computer and found no problems. They said that the problem was carbon build up and that we needed a carbon clean out. After having the carbon clean out the problem remains. The problem started out once a week 3 weeks ago and progresses to 4 or 5 times daily a week later that’s when we took it to Firestone. Ten (10) days ago Isuzu did the carbon clean out and now the problem has continued to get worse, it happens every 6 to 15 minutes. We moved from St. Peters, MO, to Ames, Iowa a week ago after getting the car back from Isuzu. This was a very stressful move because of this problem. I have some automotive knowledge and amy not afraid to get my hands dirty. This is getting expensive. Please help us if you can. Thanks and have a great day.
