Question about Isuzu Rodeo
On a long trip l was driving at 90km perhour and the motor slowed and then pick up speed (slowed by 1or2km perhour). pulled over got out check under the bonet didnt notice anything. got back in and turned the key just had the clicking of starter motor. Tryed to turn motor over by hand and wouldnt move.Towed it home. since its been home l have check it over again and thought that it was siezed but with a turn of the key the motor has turned over however now the cam shaft is not moving. I relized the timing belt is stuffed and will need replacing(which l will be doing). my question is why did the car stop in the first place? why did the motor not turn over? But does now will changing the timing belt fix the problem? do you think there is some thing else l should be looking at?
No engine stated
drove until the 60,000 cam belt snapped
no year car.
the last engine made is not free running, VVT 3.5L
the others are free running, (cam shafts not removed!)
why first tell the helper year car and whats under that hood
first, we be blind here, no xray vision or other magic.

If you have an interference engine and the timing belt broke at highway speed, the valves likely hit the pistons. This would cause piston cracking, valve stem bending, valve cracking or shearing of the woodruff key in the camshaft's timing gear. The easiest way to check for internal damage like that is with a borescope. Without a borescope, you'd have to do a compression test on each cylinder AFTER you replace the timing belt.

SOURCE: cranks but wont turn over
you know. i took it to a mechanic and actually.... The timing belt cut the Crank Shaft Censor... So it was the crank shaft censor again. The wires were routed wrong from the first mechanic that "fixed" the car.

it sounds like one of two things the knuckels in the cv axle are gone. and or you parking pin is been shered off. In result try getting a new cv axle.

Sounds like it might be either the fuel filter or the fuel pump, cause if you ran the tank down, you probably had sludge in the bottom of the tank that you sucked into the engine, you can try using a fuel system cleaner, you may have sucked sludge into the injectors running it, Zmax sells a fuel system cleaner, or there is one called RUN RIGHT, I would try putting some of that in letting it sit a few min then after it sat a few to soak in and break down the sludge, then start the car up, kick your idle up to around 1500 RPM do not go higher then that cause you will damage the engine, try that and see if that works for you, if not then I is probably the fuel pump or filter.
hope this helps.

It sounds like the Alternator is actually bad.
One great way to determine this:
Recharge the new battery with a trickle charge overnight. Make sure use remove the wires going to the Battery before recharging.
Replace the Battery Wires.
Get the Vehicle Started.
When it has Started: Leave it Running and Disconnect and Remove the Negative side of the Battery. If the Vehicle dies, it is the Alternator that is bad, and needs to be replaced..
The Battery starts that vehicle, and provides nominal power to certain accessories. The Alternator actual Runs the Engine and Recharges the Battery with a low trickled charge.
