2005 Isuzu Ascender Owner Comments

Ascender 6-cyl

  • 85,000 miles


My 2005 isuszu Ascender had ; still has a problem associated with the fuel line and pump. I had about 75,000 miles on the car. We had been driving about 900 miles and my water pump went out, so we stopped in a Goodyear/ Firestone shop in rural mo. I had the water pump repaired. Fifteen minutes after the repair was done I stopped to refuel the car. After the pump shut off and I turned on the vehicle, my fuel gage read empty and was beeping on "E" as we drove out of gas station. After driving about 20 miles it registered as full. This continued for several fill ups. We drive far distances here in the midwest, I needed to know how much gas is in my tank at all times. I had fuel pump replaced, but now engine light stays on. My mechanic says that I need to have a pressure test at an Isuzu service center there is a leak of some type, related to my fuel line. Each time I have an oil change I have to have the codes read and the car reset to make engine light go off. I have my mechanic confirm that the code is due to the fuel line pressue and then I have him remove turn off light. It will usually stay off for a few days. The repair to the fuel pump was some what complicated. I would smell strong gas fumes after the original repair. One day as I was pumping gas, gas started spaying from under my vehicle. I went back to my mechanic and at no charge there was some connection that he had to tighten.
