SOURCE: 2001 rodeo reduced power
I just went through this with my 2001 rodeo and the dealer needed to replace several parts over several weeks because they could not get the problem to go away.
-APP/throttle pos. sensor needs calibration/replacement
-air idle control needs replacing
-throttle body needs replacement
After months of going back and forth to the deal with the same problem, the throttle body was replaced last week and the problem has dissapeared....for now...

SOURCE: coil replacement How?
I guess as you may know , it has indidvidual coil packs for each cylinder. The ones on the driverside, 4,5, and 6 are easy to change. just unscrew the bolt holding the coil pack down on the plug and pull it off and unplug the coil pack from the locking plug by squeezing near the back where the wire goes in the plug. The ones on the passenger side require removing the intake manifold to get to them. This is not as hard as it may seem but the wires and a bracket connected in the back of the manifold do need to be disconnected in order to free the manifold for access to the coil packs. Wasnt such a hard job but a bit of a challenge.

SOURCE: not getting spark
Testing the coil packs.
1. Get an INSULATED wire and hook it to a ground on the car.
2. Get some one to help you
3. pull a spark plug wire off the coil
4. hold grounded wire close to, but not touching, the part where the spark plug wire connects
5. keep hands away from coil and have your helper turn the engine over ( start car and turn off)
6. if there was a spark between the wire and the coil pack it is good. if not, the coil pack needs replaced
7. replace the spark plug wire
8. test the rest
