Question about Cars & Trucks
Oh my,, It looks like HOPEFULLY the top gasket.. but the loss of power means the engine is loosing compression, suggesting that the engine block is cracked or the tapit pan gasket is broken.. Hopefully its just the seal.. I strongly suggest you get a pro to look at this and fix it for you..
but if you want to check the engine block to see if its broken,,,, take out the radiator cover and start the vehicle,, if you bubbles or the water pumping out,, you got a damaged engine block.. If not then is the seal.. you need to take the engine top off, to fix the seal,, its the one that seals the top to then engine itself.. This is one i found on youtube for a honda but the steps are basically the same..

The valve clicking sound in the 3.2 liter engine is a common occurance in most of the Isuzu Rodeo Engines. Some owners have spent money on expensive repairs to try and fix the noise, and some say that certain oils will make them quieter. Others have as many as 2 to 300,000 miles on these engines without a problem other than the clicking noise. Drive on.

You may have a bad control valve or regulator. Did you adjust the idle properly?
1. Disconnect the connector on top
2. Adjust idle to around 650-700k rpm
3. Reconnect the electrical connection
After reconnecting, the idle should jump up around 700-750k rpm.
The idle screw is fail safe setting in case the ecu cannot set the idle. The rpm's set by the idle screw are supposed to be below the ecu/stock idle.
If this doesn't work, you may have a dirty or bad Idle Air Adjuster and/or Air Regulator. For information on cleaning that, you can refer to this page http://s95014253.onlinehome.us/63104/157335.html
You can test the IAA by supplying power to the plug with the car off. Listen for any clicks or humming. That will signify that it still may be working but is possibly stuck. The Air Regulator is for high idle for warming up your car. It has a bi-metal spring inside that rotates a disc closing off an airway to bring idle to normal after a couple minutes. If it dies it will stay open and give you permanent high idle. If it gets clogged usually no high idle for warm up.
You can remove it and peer through the end. If you see a thin sliver of light, it's open. Connect 12 volts + & -, wait a few minutes and see if it's now closed. If not, it's likely dead. It can be opened and cleaned if that's the issue.

No....the rpms differ from engine to engine and from manufacturer to manufacturer. RPM's are always higher at higher speeds.

Testimonial: "thank you very much"
The power steering pump is piggie backed to the vacuum pump. The seal in the back of the vacuum pump has engin oil under presure behind it cousing a leak that gets worse over time. Cummins make a seal kit to fix this leak.
