CAUTION

 

In order to reduce the chance of personal injury and/or property damage, carefully observe the instructions that follow:

 

The service manuals of Isuzu Motors America Inc. are intended for use by professional, qualified technicians. Attempting repairs or service without the appropriate training, tools, and equipment could cause injury to you or others. This could also damage the vehicle, or cause the vehicle to operate improperly.

 

Proper vehicle service and repair are important to the safety of the service technician and to the safe, reliable operation of all motor vehicles. If you need to replace a part, use the same part number or an equivalent part. Do not use a replacement part of lesser quality.

 

The service procedures we recommend and describe in this service manual are effective methods of performing service and repair. Some of the procedures require the use of tools that are designed for specific purposes.

 

Accordingly, any person who intends to use a replacement part, a service procedure, or a tool that is not recommended by Isuzu, must first establish that there is no jeopardy to personal safety or the safe operation of the vehicle.

 

This manual contains various CAUTIONS and NOTICES that you must observe carefully in order to reduce the risk of personal injury during service or repair. Improper service or repair may damage the vehicle or render the vehicle unsafe. These CAUTIONS and NOTICES are not exhaustive. Isuzu can not possibly warn of all the potentially hazardous consequences of your failure to follow these instructions.

 

This manual covers service procedures to vehicles that are equipped with a Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR). Refer to the CAUTIONS in Cautions and Notices and in Restraints. Refer to SIR component and wiring location views in Restraints before performing a service on or around SIR components or wiring. Failure to follow these CAUTIONS could cause air bag deployment, personal injury, or otherwise unneeded SIR repairs.

 

In order to help avoid accidental air bag deployment and personal injury, whenever you service a vehicle that requires repair of the SIR and another vehicle system, we recommend that you first repair the SIR, then go on to the other system.

Do not grind brake linings.

Do not sand brake linings.

Do not clean wheel brake parts with a dry brush or with compressed air.

Some models or aftermarket brake parts may contain asbestos fibers which can become airborne in dust. Breathing dust with asbestos fibers may cause serious bodily harm. Use a water-dampened cloth in order to remove any dust on brake parts. Equipment Is available commercially in order to perform this washing function. These wet methods prevent fibers from becoming airborne.

 


 


 

 

4 – Cautions and Notices    Preface

 

Brake Fluid Caution

Caution: Brake fluid may be irritating to the skin or eyes. In case of contact, take the following actions:

Eye contact-rinse eyes thoroughly with water.

Skin contact-wash skin with soap and water.

Clutch Dust Caution

Caution: When servicing clutch parts, do not create dust by grinding or sanding the clutch disc or by cleaning parts with a dry brush or with compressed air. A water-dampened

cloth-NOT SOAKED-should be used. The clutch disc contains asbestos fibers which can become airborne If dust is created during servicing.

Breathing dust containing asbestos fibers may cause serious bodily harm.

Fuel and EVAP Pipe Caution

Caution: In order to Reduce the Risk of Fire and Personal Injury observe the following Items:

Replace all nylon fuel pipes that are nicked, scratched or damaged during Installation, Do Not attempt to repair the sections of the nylon fuel pipes

Do Not hammer directly on the fuel harness body clips when insta/1/ng new fuel pipes. Damage to the nylon pipes may result In a fuel leak.

Always cover nylon vapor pipes with a wet towel before using a torch near them. Also, never expose the vehicle to temperatures higher than 11s·c (239″F) for more than one hour, or more than 90″C (194°F) for any extended period.

Apply a few drops of clean engine oil to the male pipe ends before connecting fuel pipe fittings. This will ensure proper reconnection and prevent a possible fuel leak. (During normal operation, the O-rings located In the female connector will swell and may prevent proper reconnection if not lubricated.)

Fuel Gauge Leak Caution

Caution: Wrap a shop towel around the fuel pressure connection in order to reduce the risk of fire and personal injury. The towel will absorb any fuel leakage that occurs during the connection of the fuel pressure gauge. Place the towel In an approved container when the connection of the fuel pressure gauge is complete.

Fuel Pipe Fitting Caution

Caution: Always apply a few drops of clean engine oil to the male pipe ends before connecting fuel pipe fittings In order to reduce the risk of fire and personal injury.

This w/11 ensure proper reconnection and prevent a possible fuel leak.

During normal operation, the O-rings located in the female connector will swell and may prevent proper reconnection if not lubricated.

Fuel Storage Caution

Caution: Do not drain the fuel into an open container. Never store the fuel In an open container due to the possibility of a fire or an explosion.

Gasoline/Gasoline Vapors Caution

Caution: Gasoline or gasoline vapors are highly flammable. A fire could occur If an ignition source is present. Never drain or store gasoline or diesel fuel in an open container, due to the possibility of fire or explosion. Have a dry chemical (Class BJ fire extinguisher nearby.

Moving Parts and Hot Surfaces Caution

Caution: While working around a running engine, avoid contact with moving parts and hot surfaces to prevent possible bodily injury.

Road Test Caution

Caution: Road test a vehicle under safe conditions and while obeying all traffic laws. Do not attempt any maneuvers that could Jeopardize vehicle control. Failure to adhere to these precautions could lead to serious personal Injury.

Safety Glasses and Compressed Air Caution

Caution: Wear safety glasses when using compressed air in order to prevent eye injury.

Safety Goggles and Fuel Caution

Caution: Always wear safety goggles when working with fuel In order to protect the eyes from fuel splash.

Vehicle Lifting Caution

Caution: To help avoid personal Injury, when a vehicle Is on a hoist, provide additional support for the vehicle at the opposite end from which you are removing components. The additional support will reduce the possibility of the vehicle falling off the hoist. When you are removing major components· from the vehicle while the vehicle Is on a hoist, chain the vehicle frame to the hoist pads at the same end from which you are removing the major components to prevent tip-off. If you fall to follow these precautionary measures, vehicle damage, serious personal Injury, or death may result.

Window Removal Caution

Caution: When working with any type of glass, use approved safety glasses and gloves to reduce the chance of personal injury.

 

 

 

1998 MD-Isuzu

 

Work Stall Test Caution

Caution: One or more of the following guidelines may apply when performing specific required tests in the work stall:

When a test requires spinning the drive wheels with the vehicle jacked up, adhere to the following precautions:

Do not exceed 56 km/h (35 mph} when spinning one drive wheel with the other drive wheel stopped. This limit is necessary because the speedometer indicates only one-half the actual vehicle speed under these conditions. Personal injury may result from excessive wheel spinning.

If all of the drive wheels are spinning at the same speed, do not exceed 112 km/h (70 mph}. Personal injury may result from excessive wheel spinning.

All persons should stay clear of the rotating components and the balance weight areas in order to avoid possible personal injury.

When running an engine in the repair stall for an extended period of time, use care not to overheat the engine and the transmission.

When a test requires jacking up the vehicle and running with the wheels and brake rotors removed, adhere to the following precautions:

Do not apply the brake with the brake rotors removed.

Do not place the transmission in PARK

with the drive wheels still spinning.

Turn Off the ignition in order to stop the powertrain components from spinning.

Defective Scan Tool Notice

Notice: Do not use a scan tool that displays faulty data. Report the scan tool problem to the manufacturer. Use of a faulty scan tool can result in misdiagnosis and unnecessary parts replacement.

Fastener Notice

Notice: Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.

Fuel Pressure Notice

Notice: Do not allow the fuel pressure to exceed the specified value because damage to the fuel pressure regulator or the fuel pressure gauge may result.

1998 MD-Isuzu

Repair procedures, illustrations, and the descriptive text have been arranged so that they will correspond with the way you work. This manual provides disassembled views, wherever possible, so that it will be easy to look up parts, names, and order of assembly. The text descriptions have been rewritten into simple, complete sentences.
