Question about 2000 Isuzu Rodeo

Oil filler cap

Okay....this is a one anywhere can tell me what oil filler cap is needed for my girlfriend's rodeo. I've called every major auto parts company, spent 6 hours online researching it, even looking at all of GM's products that were the same/similar (Atlas engines, L4 engines, etc.) in the S10 line.

It is *not* a screw in type. The valve cover has a 1 3/4 inch opening and seems to require a cap that looks a whole lot like a radiator cap with two tabs that lock in and under with about a quarter turn. I don't know who made the engine but it does have a GM logo on the exhaust manifold.

Any help would be, believe me, *very, very* well received. Thanks in advance!

    It's the 2.2l engine. Is that still the same cap as the generation one small block chevy?

    Ok...thanks for that. My local dealer, whom I do not trust at all, isn't open 'til Monday and this car has to be on the road Monday before they open. I don't have much faith in them because I had a problem with the car and they told me I needed new plugs and wires, a nearly $300 fix, for what couldn't possibly the issue (I'm not a mechanic but I grew up on the farm and know how to fix most things). After giving them a hundred bucks for the privilege of listening to their BS I drove to a local Japanese specialist who diagnosed the problem in about fifteen seconds - plugged catalytic convertor. So...I'm not having much faith in my local Isuzu dealer, who, strangely, is the local Ford Dealer which is odd since Chevy owns so much of Isuzu....might be why they aren't so up on Isuzus? Thanks for the help tho.....

You should be able to find the correct part at a gmc/isuzu dealership parts counter, all gmc dealers handle isuzu parts.

Pcv valve I changed the head gasket in my 2002 Nissan Altima 2.5s and did a oil change and I had the oil filler cap off when I started it and it oil came out the filler

Oil supply to the overhead camshaft and valve gear is fairly vigorous and so some spray from there is to be expected without the filler cap.

Unlikely a problem with the pcv valve - they rarely give trouble unless seriously gummed up with carbon-type deposits and then a thorough clean mostly restores them.

No oil pressure showing on guage.changed sending unit.removed oil filler cap and found I have good oil pressure

removing the oil cap does not tell you what the oil pressure is, as the oil you see is not under pressure. you need to connect an oil pressure gage and check the pressure separate from the car system to check pressure and compare to spec.

Can the Oil Pressure Switch on a Kia Sorrento cause an oil leak?

Do you mean filler cap or the oil filter? An improperly seated O-ring on an oil filter is a common source of oil leaks, but these leaks are usually major and noticeable as soon as the engine is started. An oil pressure switch can also be a source of leaks, but a much slower leak. A leak from an oil filler cap would be slower still.

How to check the oil level in the transfer case of my 2001 Isuzu Rodeo LS.

You have to take out the fill plug. If oil comes out, put the plug back in. If oil does not come out, stick the short end of an allen wrench in with it pointed down. If the oil is within a half inch of the hole you are ok.

What kind of oil does a 97 rodeo use

Probably 5w30. If it has a manual it will tell you. Most oil caps or oil fill plugs will tell you. You can also go to and check their manuals for fluid info under the general section.
