Re: 2002 Izusu Rodeo timing problems
Check with your local Izuzu dealer, there is a procedure to set the cams in proper relationship with each other. This involves turning the cams up to 8 rotations to have them "jump" into the proper spot. I have had the same problem and found a bulletin that shows the correct way to time the engine.

This procedure is not for the novice. The water pump is driven via the timing belt. It is recommended that the belt be replaced at the same time as the pump. There is serious risk of engine damage (valves/pistons) if you accidentally move the camshaft or crankshaft from proper alignment when removing or replacing the belt/pump, and it is extremely easy to do just that while trying to position the belt. Unless you are very skilled at engine repair, you should leave this one to someone who is skilled at it.
Yes its the correct name. Yes it should have been replaced..... but its up to the mechanics advice and the customer. its not normally replaced, but I replace all parts including the water pump, just as a matter off service, to avoid your exact problem.
Could be that the catalytic converter is stopped up or the timing belt or chain needs to be replaced. When is the last time it was tuned up? May need plugs wire etc. Fuel pump may also be going out get a pressure gauge or have it checked for fuel pressure
Remove belt, fan, fan shroud and fan bracket. Remove timing covers, timing belt and water pump. Replace timing belt and the hydraulic tensioner with new ones. I suggest you get a mechanic to do this as you can easly get it out of time. Not an easy job.
Hi just a tooth out on the timing will cause problems always check and check again it HAS to be perfect, also if you started this as it was over heating and the pump was ok check radiator and have the cylinder head pressure tested to rule out a head gasket problem, Hope this helps
