I'd say that it's likely a math problem rather than an isosurface problem.

Best bet is to post a sample scene so we can render it and play with the
equations.

Also, what I would do in debugging my own code would be to graph the values of
the terms and the overall expression in a spreadsheet, and see if anything is
revealed.
