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: replacing the power steering pump on a 1998 isuzu rodeo

Remove low pressure and high pressure hoses (this one could be hard to break loose). You might want to have an oil pan handy, to capture the oil. Disconnect electrical sensor. Remove the bolt that holds belt tension adjustment plate. And finally remove the bolt that holds the pump in place. It is bolted from the back and located at the right lower corner of the pump if you are facing the front of the car. Remove the pump assy. I could not remove belt pulley at home, no matter how hard I tried. Ended up taking it to an automotive shop and they removed it in no time, using one of those "pneumatic impact guns". Assemble new pump. Fill the reservoir with PS oil. Make sure both of the front wheels are off the ground, start the engine and slowly spin the steering wheel back and forth for about 5 minutes or untill screeching sound stops and the liquid in the reservoir stops foaming. That will bleed any air that is in the system. Don't go all the way to the end of stroke. Good luck.

Diagram on how to change a water pump


It is driven by the timing belt. You must remove the radiator fan, drive belt or belts, possibly valve covers, the harmonic balancer, and then the timing cover. This is the time to change the timing belt and tensioner and idler as well.

I can't figure out how to get the water pump out of my 1997 rodeo? Do I need to pull the harmonic balancer?


On most vehicles you do, so very likely, in your case.
You need good access to install the pump, so you don't cause a leak.

Need to replace the harmonic balancer in a 1994 isuzu rodeo. ( rwd, 3.2 ltr v.6 ). no success so far. is the main bolt reverse threaded? so far i have been attempting to turn it toward the passenger side,...


No, the bolt is not left handed. You do need to turn it counter-clockwise to loosen it. You're probably just spinning the engine when trying to loosen it. I use a 6" c-clamp and attach it behind the balancer in a way that the threaded shaft can lodge up against something so the engine can't turn. Then I use a 3 lb rubber mallet and hit the 1/2" drive rachet on the handle, or put a breaker bar on the end of it and work it loose that way. Once you get the bolt off, you will need to use a pulley puller to get the balancer off.

Harmonic balancer pulley is free spinning/not charging alternator .making a metal grinding metal sound ,doesnt have any power at take off,sluggish changing gears .


If the harmonic balancer is spinning freely on the crank, the key has sheared off and likely has damaged the balancer and possibly the crank. Pull it off, replace the key and check the balancer and crank for excessive wear.
