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.

Two freeze plugs in the head itself under the cam each one offset from the center of the head...this is what is wrong with mine, sounds like the same problem

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.

2001 mustang v6 hole in oilpan


Well, go over a bump too fast? I did.
The pan is probably made of aluminum. In which case it must be steam cleaned of all oil, before you can weld it. Tough metal to create a good seal, and it may still leak through small holes untill they fill with dirty oil and clog. I would reccomend a new pan and gasket. A very simple operation with the car raised a bit. You may have to remove something simple like a sway bar, for access...depending on the car model.

I had the valve cover gasket changed on my 1996


on a v6 ? Low on oil? rear cam plugs leaking? The lifters are on the end of the rocker arms and may get clogged. I have had some luck running 0w30 mobil synthetic for about a week or so with a new oil filter [Not a fram filter] and after that put 10w30 synthetic oil back in and a new filter. Check for oil leaking at other locations. If the noise is at the front of engine near water pump it may be the hydraulic timing belt tensioner.

While driving at highway speeds Rodeo slows down and loses power. If you pump gas pedal car will slowly pick up speed after downshifting. Some days no problems other days this lack of power is constant....


1st check your breather pipe on the fuel tank as it could be blocked and not breathing air into tank
This will happen after filling up with fuel and untill you haved used about 1to 2 gallons.
Other wise check fuel pump for either slight air leak or filter blockage...

Replacing fluids 0n 1996 300zx


radiator antifreeze: open drain **** on radiator and drain refill with water re plug and leave radiator cap off. start vehicle. watch when coolant drops or rises drastically as that is the thermostat opening. at that time re open drain **** and fill radiator with hose water at the same time. when water coming out is completely clear again turn vehicle off and drain radiator again. fill with antifreeze and water mix. 50/50

oil: jack up car, find oil plug, directly behind steering rack on oil pan. undo plug and drain oil into container. while oil is draining remove oil filter. wait for oil to drain completely then re-install drain plug and new oil filter(filled with oil) undo oil cap and pour in oil 4.5 quarts on n/a and 5 for turbo. tighten cap and your done.

brake system: dont attempt, use an experienced mechanic as the lines need to be bled in numerous places including inside the car from the abs module mounted behind the passenger seat.
easy brake system: individually bleed brakes while adding fluid until clear fluid comes out. (not efficient)

a/c: do not attempt unless you have an evac pump for ac systems.

clutch: same as easy brake except using the bleed valves at the slave cylinder and on passenger side fender well.

washer fluid: add fluid and squirt a little to make sure there is no air in the line
