Question about 1998 Isuzu Rodeo
I can not turn the crankshaft by hand with socket and breaker bar. How can you find out what caused the engine to seized. Do i need to remove the timing belt and try to turn the engine head to see if the head turn than try to turn the crankshaft to see if the crackshaft turn? or is there any ways better than this ways?
If engine has seized, the likely cause is that a crankshaft/rod bearing has failed. Unless you ran vehicle low on oil, this can generally be considered to be a material failure. (unless you ran the rpms up way over "redline") Generally the engine can now be regarded as JUNK and just be replaced. You can remove the cylinder head and inspect it to see if it's re-usable, but you should not try to turn it by hand while installed, or you may bend valves.If you decide to re-use it, you will need to completely clean it to remove debris from failure otherwise any junk in passageways can destroy the block bearings in the new one you bolted it to.
