Hi. My name is Joe and I'm new to this forum, and to posting in general, so please give me all the help you can. I'll apologize in advance for any errors. Just let me know. We have (well, technically, it's my wife's) a 1991 Isuzu pickup (is this a P'up?) with a 2.3l carburated engine and a five speed manual transmission. In my previous life (career) I was a light mechanic and state inspector (Va., where I still live), and I can and do try to do most of my maintenance myself. This truck has been pretty great, and my wife used it every day until she got her new CR-V. The Honda has a few more bells and whistles, but I'm gonna say its A/C won't be working on its original charge after 38 years. Now I have almost 30 years in the specialty cement business, but I still do a lot with instrumentation, so I try to keep my troubleshooting and logic skills sharp. I still try to do what I can on our vehicles, and that is what has brought me here. I hope that you all will be able to help me with her. If anyone has any cement questions, it's a little off topic but I would be happy to reciprocate in an appropriate way. Thanks in advance for your welcome and assistance.

Joe,

Welcome aboard. Yes, Isuzu called that a "Pickup". A lot of owners call them P'ups, and that's no big deal except when asking for help or parts it may confuse people.
