Question about 2000 Isuzu Rodeo

2 Answers

2000 3.2L V6 Rodeo

Have gallons of water in oil. Emptied oil, new filter and refilled oil. Tried filling radiator but the water went into oilpan and out the dipstick! Removed intake and right side head, water in cylinders, head gasket and mating surfaces do not show the problem. Middle intake runner on head is cleaner than other two indicating something. Left side head still on plugs look good and dry inside cyclinder (looking through spark plug hole). Have not found the cooling system failure. Any ideas what may have failed?

    Did not find any indication of a failed head gasket. Looked it over good, expected to find a clear indication of something wrong with the amount of water that quickly went into the oil pan. Intake system is goofy on this V6, dod not recall any overlap on the water/intake gaskets.

What is the volume of oil needed for 4DR5 truck diesel engine? What is the reason of having the temperature high or almost above the normal level?


your best bet is to put in 3 quarts then see if there is anything showing on the dipstick if not add another quart at a time until you see something or it's at the fill level on the dipstick. when I do this I leave the dipstick either out completely or half out so oil doesn't splash up on it while pouring in that was I don't have to wipe it each time. typically from the bottom of the dipstick to the max fill line is one to 1.5 quarts, so don't worry about overfilling if you are checking between each quart. And if you buy 5 quarts and you have an extra, just save it for the next oil change.

WHY WONT RADIATOR FILL ITS NOT LEAKING ANYWHERE,BUT WONT FILL UP?


If you are pouring coolant into the radiator and it wont get full, then there is a problem. Seeing as the coolant system is of a finite value, one cannot put an infinite amount of water into it. I would venture a guess that if you pulled the dipstick out to check your oil level, you might find out where the water went. If you find water in the oil, then you have a cracked head, cracked block, or leaking head gasket. If not there, check the transmission fluid since many vehicles have a transmission oil cooler inside the radiator.

How much coolant do i put in a 1997 toyota 4runner 3.4 liter ?


50/50 with water.v6 capacity is 2.5 gallons. make sure your antifreeze is not already premixed 50/50 with water if it is just our it in. if its strait antifreeze mix it 50/50 with water. and if you did not get all the antifreeze out of the block it will not hold 2.5 gallons. refill procedure is fill the system up install the cap start the car watch the temperature hand till it comes up to normal stop the engine at this point and wait till it cools refill once more. this allow the engine to remove trapped air and open the thermostat for proper refill.

There's a knock on start up, and when I checked the oil none registered on the dip stick, no visible leaks and no oil stains anywhere. I only just gave it an oil change. There was no oil light warning at...


no oil on dipstick is a very BAD THING make sure you have oil in the motor before you do anything else!!! or else it can cost you a motor if you did your own oil change,,, did you put oilpan plug back in? did you tighten the oil filter? did you put 5qts oil back into motor? there SHOULD BE A READING ON THE DIPSTICK. new oil looks almost transparent on the dipstick. try rubbing your finger on the dipstick to check for oil presence. look real close at the dipstick before you start your motor!!! if you added 5qts oil it went somewhere,are you sure it went into the motor? if no oil in motor there will be loud knocking from the motor. hope this helped you save your motor!!!!!

Water is leaking out of my coolant container.car is overheating with less than 2 mins of driving


Need to seal the leak in the coolant container with epoxy or by replacing the coolant container.

Fill coolant system with 50/50 solution up to 2 gallons may be required to stop the overheating.

Don't drive an overheated engine.
