SOURCE: replace the alternator on a 97 isuzu rodeo

from Yahoo answers
The alternator is located on the passenger side of the motor at the bottom. There is a bracket attached to the motor and the alternator. You need not take the bracket off to remove the alternator. Two bolts hold the alternator to the bracket. One bolt is on the front top of the alternator and one bolt is located on the bottom front of the alternator. The bottom front bolt is attached to the tension adjustment for the alternator. Loosen the tension screw then remove the bolt going through the tension adjustment. After you loosen the top, front bolt, the alternator should be loose enough to move side to side. Remove the top, front bolt. Now you must disconnect the alternator from the power supply. Behind the alternator is a screw with a wire attached via nut. Remove this wire. Nextly there is a series of wires with a plug on the end. It is plugged into the side of the alternator. Uplug this item. You can also access both of these from the passenger side front tire well. Something to consider is that remanufactured alternators in Rodeo's as well as the Honda Passport (which has the same engine as the Rodeo) do not work and the problem(s) associated with a bad alternator,ie; not charging, no fan blower, battery light and brake light on, still exsist after replacing alternator with reman. Use a factory original alternator if possible. It will cost a little more than a reman but will most likely save you a lot of time and headache!

Hope this helps you out!!

SOURCE: timing settings for a 1998 isuzu rodeo

You didn't say whether you had a V6 engine or a 4cyl. Here is the procedure for a V6.

It sounds like he moved the cam shaft independently of the crankshaft or other camshaft so you will need to do all these procedures:

1. Turn the crankshaft until the mark on the spocket is lined up with the mark on the oil pump housing (the mark is on the driver's side at 90 degrees to the sprocket itself).

2. Back off the crankshaft counterclockwise 1/8 turn to ensure the pistons aren't at top dead center. This gives the valves room to move without hitting the piston.

3. Turn the passenger's side camshaft until it "jumps" into place with the alignment mark on the camshaft pully is pretty close to being lined up with the mark on the engine head.

4. Turn the driver's side camshaft until it "jumps" into place but this won't be perfectly lined up with the mark but will be about an 1/8 turn off from the mark. Then line it up by hand.

5. The idler pulleys and tensioner pulleys should be installed on the engine but the tenioner pulley adjuster (it is a little cylinder with a rod coming out of it that is held in place by 2 bolts) should be removed.

6. Place the new belt on the crankshaft first. Be sure the arrows on the belt point in a clockwise direction. If you have a belt with lines and dots then the lines will line up with all markings that you have lined up together. The dots should line up at the 270 degree point on the crankshaft (opposite of the lines and the markings).

7. Loop the belt around the tensioner pulley, around the passenger's side cam, under the waterpump, around the driver's side cam, and finally around the idler pulley. Check all alignments.

8. Put the tesioner adjuster in a vise and squeeze it together until you can place a small drill bit or allen wrench through the holes to keep it compressed.

9. This is the tricky part. You will need to install the tensioner adjuster and that will require some moving of the belt to allow enough play to get the adjuster in place. This may move the passenger's side alignment. If so, you will need to try it again. I find that if you move passenger's side alignment mark clockwise by one tooth of the sprocket, then when you go to put the tensioner in place it lines up. You may find other tricks to overcome this challenge.

10. Once you think you have everything lined up. Use a wrench to turn the crankshaft sprocket 2 full turns. Listen closely and feel for any hard resistance as you do this to determine if the pistons are hitting the valves. If you believe they are hitting each other thenrepeat the adjustment procedure. Not doing this can ruin the valves or more.

11. If everything seems OK. remove the drill bit or allen wrench from the tension adjuster. Perform step 10 again for one final check.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: no power to fuel pump 1996 isuzu rodeo

well i got a salvaged ecm from a junkyard and put it in, still did'nt start. took alternator off to have it checked , it is fine. put it back in and now it starts and runs fine. check the alternator and the connections, i heard the alternator controls power after the initial ecm prime when it is turned on. i have no idea how true it is, but worth a shot. if you can find a cheap ecm for a junkyard (mine was 75 bucks) i would try that afterwords.

SOURCE: water pump replacement 96 isuzu rodeo

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.

I replaced water pump, thermostat and radiator. My heat works fine, but the car still seems to be running hot. There is steam coming from the container that says "coolant only" any ideas why?

if you say there is steam coming from the "coolant only" overflow reservoir, then the first thing I'd inspect is the integrity of this overflow coolant tank. if you believe the cap is in working condition, take a careful look at the tank itself. so as to rule out any cracks or deformities which may compromise this parts ability to build and retain the necessary pressure for the cooling system to operate in the manner for which it was designed. hope this helps!

How do I bleed the cooling system on a 1992 Isuzu Rodeo?

engine cooling not A/C cooling of humans...
fill it slowly at rad.
with the hightest hose removed at one end.
not put it back. (hose)
repeat with rad cap off. filling,,, AF. (antifreeze is AF)
get the rad full of 50% AF
cap off, start engine and stop it when the coolant starts to overflow.
if the coolant drops add some now. running.
if it overfills. good, that normal (hot AF expands pure physics)
then cap the rad.
drive around block.
come back park .
let it cool, and check cap level at rad neck
add AF to fill
then drive around block again. and check cold again.
is it now stable, its ready to rock. (drive)
if it is not , there is a problem.

if now good, put the correct level in side overfill tank.
make sure all hoses there are good.

this is an art form , no engine stated, here, just Rodeo
there are 4 engine here, in uSA. for one car.

but my answer above covers most engines.
but there are some exceptions on some...
the thermostat must have the bleed (jiggle pin,etc) on the up hill side. on all engines. or it will be hard to bleed.

just dont drive a long ways until, the cold rad proves (cap off)
that it is really full.
then get the side tank working, with the hoses good so it
can suck back AF when cold, or it will drop each day. driven.

Coolant leak

2 Answers

My 93 isuzu rodeo is running hot, the hot water flows back into the overflow tank I have replaced the thermostat and had the radiator acid dipped and cleaned and flushed but it still keeps doing this what...

you should get a head gasket test done on the car as it will detect if there is any combustions chamber gas in the coolant.also check to make sure the cooling fan is operating properly as if its not can cause an overheating condition.

My rodeo is running hot. It is not steaming or bubbling over and the fan has been replaced would my next option be to replace the thermostat.

Or put more engine coolant/water into it. you might need to put some directly into the radiator. The fan isn't the major cooling agent in the engine, the water/coolant is. Just make sure you don't over fill or under fill the tank holding the extra coolant, the radiator should be full though.

hope it helps.

The engine misses on 3 and 4 and compression leaking into radiat

If you do in fact have compression (air) blowing in to the cooling systems this would show either a blown head gasket, warped head or cracked head. Please od not run the Rodeo until repaired as if coolant is getting in to the cylinder or oil (Your oil will look like chocolate shake) it can do severe damage. What motor please 3.0 V6?

1994 Isuzu Rodeo 3.2L V-6 leaking coolent from somewhere in between the engine and fire wall

There is a coolant passage that connects the two heads. The gaskets need to be replaced. The transmission needs to be raised up from the back in order to repair.
