Rodeo ES 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 130,000 miles


This is the definition of a PIECE OF SH*T CAR!!!! IT STALLS RANDOMLY... it's like this Rodeo is POSSESSED BY A LEGION OF DEMONS...

It stalled at an intersection going 40mph with my wife and kids in it! If I let off the gas at all it stalled instantly... I had to run 4 stop signs to get home... The worst part is no check engine light to give us a clue why... I changed out fuel pump and fuel pump sensor, fuel pressure regulator, fuel pump relay, alternator, changed EGR valve, maf sensor, air filter, fuel filter and sprayed with b12... cleaned throttle body, there are no vacuum leaks, new NGK plugs, throttle position sensor... I have no idea what else to change so I won't change anything... I'm trading this rolling piece of crap in this weekend. NO more! Good bye. There is an excellent reason Rodeos were discontinued!

A while ago, I tried starting my car. It started fine, but as soon as I put it in drive, it died. I tried restarting it a few times and then I gave up and had it towed to a mechanic. The mechanic said, it died on him the first time he put it in drive. Then after that, it never happened again. He couldn't figure out what was wrong with it, so he let me take it back without having to pay and said to make sure I warm it up before driving.

I hadn't had the problem for like a month. Now it's doing it again. It's a lot colder outside now and it does it almost every time I am about to go home from work. It seemed warming it up prevened the car from dying, but the other day, it died right after I started it up. It seems like it only happens when it's real cold outside or if the car hasn't been warmed up. But it's only going to get colder and I don't want to have to warm up my car for a half hour every night before driving home. There must be some solution to this problem. I'm worried it may get a lot worse.
