Changing exsaust valve and valve guide on a Kohler 12 horse engine.how do I remove the guides.


you will need 3 special tools for this job . remove the head and valves . One tool will be turned so that it fits in the guide and is slightly smaller than the guide outer diameter. The other tool will go around the guide and rest on the valve spring seat. This allows the guide to be pressed out without stressing the head . The third tool will fit in the guide and will be recessed so that it slip down over the guide the required distance so that when the guide is pressed in the outer edge will hit on the valve spring seat and position the guide in the correct distance into the head. The tool that was used to go around the guide to press out will be used in the head chamber to support the head during the pressing in process.. I would rather take the head and the new guides to an engine re-conditioner shop and have the job done in 15 minutes so that I could then get then to seat the valves in the head properly

What is the diffrence between 98 and 01 isuzu rodeo 3.2 engines?


engines come 3 ways, short block, long block or with all , including manifold., so ? which is it?
USA? we cant guess country , so will wild guess this as USA.
the dealers are gone.
so you cant just go there, online and see the whole engine and all parts there.
the engine exchange people know that, why not ask them
or just look at the many sellers on line of rebuilt engines.
modifications are huge. potentially.
  • smog.
  • added mounts. (for newer egr parts... yes, smog) or more....!!!
  • upgrades.
  • moved filters.
  • new heads
  • new oil pump designs.
  • endless list here.?
to find out history why not join a real Isuzu form and ask.
some people keep records there of this topic.

Need to change the engine coolant temp sensor, Where is it and what are the steps to changing it.


Heed of engine temperature!!! (Wait for engine cooling).
The engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor is placed on back of cylinder head, towards clutch side. Disconnect the electrical cable plug and remove the fastening circlip. Remove the ECT sensor by pulling out from cylinder head. Extract also old "O-ring" sealing rubber. Install new ECT sensor with new "O-ring" sealing rubber.

Please rate my response. Thanks!

Once the car warms up if you shut it off it will not start till the next morning


The problem here is the ECTS. Engine Coolant Temp. Sensor. It cost around $12 dollars and takes maybe 5 mins to fix with a 13mm socket. Saturn SL series built before november 2001 have a plastic ECTS. When you buy the new one make sure it has the brass tip as some parts stores still carry the cheap plastic one
