I had issue with my '04 Isuzu Rodeo for about a year now different issues. First my engine is eating up all the oil. I got an synthetic oil change on feb7 and on mar8 the stick had no oil I took it back and they topped everything but they couldn't find a leak unless the engine was consuming the oil last year I took my car in to Suzuki dealer ship because of the oil issue and they couldn't find any problems they just change the starter. 2nd issue one day I was driving on a Texas hwy going about 55 because it was a windy day and my truck just jerked like if I slammed on the brakes and all the lights lit up but the check engine, reduce speed, tire pressure and the low gas tank stayed on for a long time. When I schedule it to be look at they couldn't find anything wrong with the truck even though I had videos of the problem hopping while driving on the hwy. 3rd issue im having an issue switching gears. For example my truck is parked for over an hour and when I need to out my truck on park or reverse its stuck. I'm pushing on the brakes and sometimes it won't budge until after 5 mins or soż 4th issue I'm not any having of the previous issue mentioned @ time except for when I put the truck in reverse it starts to putting & shake like when you run out of gas or completely turn off

Cup of coffee was in cup holder. Was spilled accidentally onto console. Appears all the electrical modules are under the cup holder with no protective cover. Caused transmission controller module to short circuit. Check 4 wd light. 4L kept flashing, ABS light and check engine light all stayed on. Vehicle didn't want to run at first. After he stayed running sounded as if a fire engine siren was behind me winding down. No fire truck.....appears it was the 4WD. Appears that a cup holder should not be placed where there are electrical components, especially if those components have no protection from liquid if spilled in that area.

Electrical issues rear driver side passenger window will not always go uo or down from master control on driver door. Front passenger window when going up will not go up straight but at a slant as if beginning to fall off track. On 3 occasions vehicle has not started due to alarm? turn signal (left) does not function properly, keeps popping out of place.
