Question about 1997 Isuzu Rodeo

Knocking noise from wheel at speed

Hello.
I have a 96 Deisel Isuzu MU (Rodeo) with Manual 4WD Hubs.
Recently I have noticed that there is a continuous tapping sound comming from one of the front wheels when I travel at about 30mph+.
The sound is similar to a stone in the tyre.
I have rechecked the tyres and can find no stone.
Oddly enough, this sound does not happen under 30mph.
Anny ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Possibly a bad wheel bearing. Does it change pitch when you go faster than 30 mph?

There is a grinding or ticking from the transfer case.


find a live hands on mech. for all noise......
finding the sources of noise takes, hands on,
and can be dangerous to find, and to continue driving,.
and this car is not AWD, its really a part time , 4wd, made by ISUZU.
this car is honda. , badged Isuzu.
do not drive in 4wd on dry pavement , only on ice or dirt.
or you will wind up the driveline and damage it. that is the cause of the terrible noise, im sure.
see why here
http://www.fixkick.com/part-time-test.html

now the 2wd.
that is a whole other matter if you didnt already damage parts
in 4wd.
data:
The Honda Passport was a badge engineered version of the Isuzu Rodeo released in 1993


the Rodeo has no center differential, so can not drive
on dry pavement (ice free) safely nor damage free.

I have 2003 RA Holden Rodeo 3.0 ltr T/Diesel. The 2 front wheels don't seem to be engaging when i put it into 4wd (high or low range). I can hear the high and low range click in when i press the buttons...


Does yours have AUTO hubs, there are some luxory models have auto hubs, these rely on difference in drive on the axles,(wheel spin) others have manual locking hubs, these actually need to be engaged manually, these require you to twist the centre of the hub to engage and disengage the front hubs, these sometimes require you to reverse to disengage properly, Rodeo had both depending on model. Happy New Year

My 4x4 hubs won't lock on my 96 Isuzu rodeo


I assume they are manual locking hubs? Once you engage the hubs and select 4WD you must reverse a few meters and you will hear them click into place, If they don't lock in your hubs may need servicing, They are quite easy to dismantle and re-grease which you can do yourself if you are handy with mechanical buts and pieces.

1994 4x4 V6 rodeo isuzu squeaks every time I turn the wheels could it be the cvjoint


Possibly. Could also be wheel bearing, brake pad, or other component. Isolate the noise, if you can, by driving slowly and turning left and right, seeing if the noise changes in either direction. A noise that gets louder indicated a problem with the OPPOSITE side or outside components on the turn, as they have to turn slightly faster.

CV joints usually make horribly loud grinding sounds. See if the sound is worse when 4WD is engaged or goes away. It is also possible that the auto-locking hub could be a problem. The hubs were a large problem in the early days of the product.

1997 isuzu rodeo 4x4 problem


Only the "S" model has the manual locking hubs.
Auto locking hubs look like normal center on a whel; only bigger. Manual locking hubs woul have and indent in the middle of hub and a raised ridge to grab with your finger to rotate the hub into the locked position. There should be some writting on the hub edge telling you which way to turn to lock and unlock.

Loud clicking noise when 4wd is engaged on left wheel when turnin


Check your cv (constant velocity joint) , It may have a big clearance which is the source of the noise when turning left or right and when 4wd is engage. Juts like front wheel drive cars, if the cv joint is with clearance it will tend to sound in the left or right turns. It is not exactly clicking sound , nmore like knocking sound , low in pitch, but not heavy.
