Q: 2002 Isuzu Rodeo hard to start when cold

asked by on

My car has problems starting in the morning and after it has been turned off for a while. Sometimes it stalls when stopped at a red light.

Hi there. If your vehicle stalls at red lights, it is likely a fuel problem. I recommend checking the performance of the fuel pressure regulator and fuel pump by using a fuel pressure gauge. If you need further assistance, I recommend you have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, inspect the stalling issue on your vehicle and replace any damaged parts.
