dan is this a 4 cylinder?quad 4 by chance ,does it misfire,if so it could be the "DI" direct ignition on top of the valve cover or the module that is attached to it,also ispect coolant temp sensor but that doesn't sound to likely,if you get this throw up some more info.

Answerthe cylnoid or has a blown head gasket or maybe overheats

There is no such thing as cylnoid to answer the question. Get diagnostics run and look for a pattern in the codes. Likely you have an intermittent sensor or a leak in vacuum pressure that needs to be addressed. More likely a fuel delivery problem, check your fuel pump.

What could be wrong with your 1994 Isuzu Rodeo it hesitates when accelerating and you've changed to fuel filter?

It could be the mass air flow sensor located on top of the breather tube by the air filter. One way to check if it makes a difference is to disconnect it. Drive it and see if it still hesitates. If it does that could be the problem, was on mine. It can mean alot of things really! Timings off, fuel pressure regulator is set too high, plug wires are frayed, O2 sensor could be wired wrong, or going bad. Check all of these!!
