Question about 1996 Isuzu Rodeo
Have to crank the wheel as hard to the left as it will go & sometimes it will start & sometimes not. The lites come on as if its going to start but wont. It started this & we realized the steering wheel wont lock at all.

Did you ask why the crank pulley needs replaced?
That unit is a solid piece of steel and I can't imagine what could go wrong with it unless it was damaged when it was removed when the timing belt was changed.
I have a 1997 Rodeo with 163,000 miles. It still is running but is showing its age. My son owned a 1995 model and went over 200,000 on it. Both vehicles suffered from excessive rust in the undercarriage.
If you are paying a mechanic to fix that vehicle, I'd propose that it is more expensive to keep running than it is worth.
Again, ask why he wants to replace the crank pulley. If the vehicle runs OK as it is, and his answer is not coherent, skip this repair and drive it for the life it has left with minimal repairs only.

it's on the bottom of the motor, towards the back on the passenger side. It has a small clip of wires and one screw holding it on. You may want to pull it up on ramps- if it'll run- otherwise, get under the Rodeo, it's up a little higher than the oil pan, and to the passenger side. (it's right on top of the two lines that run to the bottom of the radiator.) You will need a 10mm socket to remove it. I have added a few pics showing the location (i just completed this task myself)
