What can be wrong with my 1997 Isuzu Rodeo. At first start up in the morning the car will not stay running. It keeps dying even when I try to give it gas. Could it be the IAC (Idle Air Control valve)

Asked by Sep 14, 2015 at 03:39 PM about the 1997 Isuzu Rodeo 4 Dr LS SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Its a 2.6L 4 cyl, 5 sp. I have to push start it in the am to keep it running. It keeps dying if I just try starting it with the ignition. It seem like its starving for gas. I changed the fuel filter but that didn't help.
Any suggestions?

Have you checked the plugs. Tuned it up?
