I'm selling my 1997 Isuzu Rodeo. Its a 4 Cylinder. 5 Speed Transmission. 2 Wheel Drive. It has a Chevy S10 Engine swapped in. Runs fine. It has an erratic idle when it warms up and likes to stall sometimes but will start right back up. It was from Florida originally, then West Virginia for about a year, and now its here in Pittsburgh, PA. Good PA title. There is not a spot of rust on it. It is currently not PA inspected. It just needs a windshield to pass because it has a crack in it. It has no AC. The power steering recently quit working but its not hard to steer.

Would be a great candidate for a lift and a V8 swap or drive as is. Like I said, there is no rust on the frame or the body.

Here are 2 pics:



I will sell for $300 CASH. Any questions or interests please post or PM.

No interest in this?
Give it time....you just posted it.

Could take a little while, specially with gas prices, etc. and many owners are a tad leary of the 4-cylinder engines just because of their higher maintenance requirements over a V6, and lack of power on a heavy truck.

But you have it priced right, IMHO....so just give it some time. I've seen some of these requests take a few weeks, some sale right away, others end up trading the vehicle for another.

I'm very partial to the 97 model year, but have no clue regarding the 4-cylinder engine.

If it has an S10 engine in it, then it doesn't have a 4 cylinder engine.

I disagree, I got an s10,sitting outside with a 2.2 4 cylinder motor, I drive it everyday.

Sheesh. That's what I get for assuming that my own experience was naturally "the norm". LOL

I've never seen an S10 with anything but 6 cylinders in them. Well, except for the guys who have shoehorned v-8s into them.

What year is it ?

Free bump.

At 400 dollars, if I lived close enough, I'd buy it.

It would at least be a good parts truck.

And scrap value alone, has got to be close to the 400 dollars.

ts really clean, no rust. It can be street driven, turned into a mud truck, or used for parts.

I can get $373 for scrap but its too clean to crush. I'd rather someone make it a project or drive it. If I had the money and space I'd 4.3 swap it, 700R4, NP205 transfer case, SAS the front end with a wagoneer dana 44 (1 inch longer iirc), Lift it. Shove 35's under it, go mud.
