I would advise replacing the harmonic balancer asap. If the marks are moving then the bonded rubber which is the movement for the harmonics is coming apart and if not replaced will fail with possible radiator. timing cover and other related damage. I have seen one come apart on a Chrysler valiant and it hit the ground and went through a windscreen. The screech is the outer pulley slipping on the crank hub.

SOURCE: Whining from engine when in gear

Just a thought- remove the oil filler cap when the whine is present - (this checks if PCV valve is faulty, causing high crankcase vacuum, which in turn causes a whistling/whine noise as air leaks past engine oil seals). Worth a check.

Try listening with a short piece of hose pipe to locate immediate area/source of noise.

It may be a idler pulley bearing starting to freeze up remove the belt and turn all pulleys,power steering pump, alternator, idler pulley , etc. to find out if there is excessive resistance offered if so this is the culprit, on the idler pulley check the raidial play in the bearing by trying to move it by holding it with your hand and try to wiggle it gently back and forth same with the other (pulleys) check for loosness or play in pulleys bearings if everything checks out ok the battery may be running low and upon startup the alternator is under alot of strain to compensate for the recent drain on the battery while it is stressed to turn the starter to start car, your car may be drawing power from the battery as the car sits causing this condition disconect the pos. terminal of the battery and run a positive voltmeter wire to battery terminal then run negative volt meter wire to the now removed positive battery terminal cable set the voltmeter to dc there should not be 12 volts present if so there is and open circuit present drawing down the battery as the car sits while off.

Where is the crankshaft positioning sensor located on 1998 isuzu trooper 3.5?

i can answer for USA, but not in Canada.
why not post symptoms and make this 10 x more easy.
(CKP 101 class)
the crank sensor if fitted (some engine have none before 1996)
can only be in 3 places 4 deeper.
at crank front pulley (behind)
in mid block (yes funny placed) Bingo?
at fly wheel edge or hidden behind it (trans pulled then fly)
so where is yours. well, the fsm covers this or on any car you can attempt to buy one for free at any online dealers parts pages.
if full graphic details of it and its placement.

the 6VE1 engine, knowing the engine real name make finding facts 10x more easy and free photos of all parts on it, "goggle that"

lets try the free way.
but they have no photos of all engine parts, but do sell it. CKP,$$$

just answers dot com (ASE pros)
states (first google hit btw)
the reluctor ring is located between rod bearing 2 and 3

finding some parts for Isuzu cars, is very hard lacking real dealers with all parts. but you can buy this in any store. after market parts abound, you can not mix sensors from one engine to the next.
do not attempt that, match your engine, and year,!

there it is, does a photo make it easier to find?

You could take the old crank out and send it to a machine shop with the pulley and have it repairedwhich will probably be less than the cost of a new crank but will still need all the work and new parts that a new crank entails.
You could also take an afternoon and go to work with a small file and square up the keyways. You can get new keystock in an assortment of sizes at the auto parts store. If you do this make sure you have a snug fit with the new key or it will beat itself out again. Patience is the key here.
You could also just replace the engine, hopefully with one that has lower mileage. Hope this helps.

I have a 95 Isuzu rodeo. The engine makes a loud, almost diesel engine noise. When I am accelerating, the noise seems to go away. When I was shopping for this vehicle, I saw many ads that said their's make...

ATTENTION!! Do not run the engine if you do not want to have to buy an engine!! I just solved this problem with my own 95 Rodeo the problem you are having is common on 95 rodeo with 3.2 L engine. Failure of the hydralic timing belt tensioner will allow the tensioner pulley to knock against the top of the tensioner unit ( inside timing cover lower left side of crank pulley little cylinder looking part ) held in by 2 bolts when you take it off if you can depress the button its bad . Dealer has part for $110.00, so go to auto zone but they dont have it listed for 95 rodeo have them look up timing belt tensioner for 95 honda passport $76.95 takes 2 days VDO (Vendor Order only) not a very hard job have fun dont forget to change the timing belt and water pump for good measure after the complete job is done you should not have to worry about it for another 70,000 miles.have a good day

Since you did not post that the idle is rough, I would assume that what you are referring to is that engine will not idle when cold. Areas/components to check would be (depends on the regional version of your engine):
  1. auto throttle choke;
  2. Air idle valve (electrical);
  3. injector and injector pump (least likely).
Worst case scenario, have your compression checked.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
