Won't Accelerate Past 10 mph


Asked by moorejt2435 Aug 10, 2014 at 06:54 PM about the 1999 Isuzu Rodeo 4 Dr S V6 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Car starts fine sounds a little ruff and when trying to accelerate past 10 mph it won't
accelerate. Before it wouldn't accelerate over 40 mph then the next day wouldn't go over
20 mph. Took it to a mechanic and they said that it was the crankshaft and the piston rods
blew in the car. No sure about that.

Check the timing?


What kind o f noise do you hear?


its kinda just like a thud sound


Not good. I think you should get a second opinion. But I fear that the first guy was right.
