Yes, it could. Because the engine is running lean with that extra air being sucked in. Lean running does make the engine run hotter. Hopefully that is all it is. Replace the intake manifold gasket and see if it still runs hot. Good idea to change the coolant and thermostat and flush the radiator while you are at it.

My 1995 isuzu rodeo is overheating, We have already changed out the water pump and the thermostat. What else could it be?

if it overheats quickly, you may have a blown heat gasket - if it overheats slowly, check your fan clutch - if it is worn out the fan won't turn fast enough - also check inside the radiator to see if the passages are clogged - if there is a lot of build up around the openings then you will need to replace the radiator or take it to a radiator shop and have the top removed so they can clean out the passages - also make sure there is nothing obstructing the flow of air through the radiator like leaves or paper that might have blown up from the road - good luck and have a nice day :O)

This would be the intake manifold gasket that needs replaced if the diagnosed correctly. It is on the top of the engine. If your husband properly replaced the intake manifold gasket and you still have the problem then the diagnosis was wrong and something else is the problem.

1993 Rodeo with 2.6 liter engine. Had coolant in the engine oil so I replaced the head gasket, intake and exhaust manifold gaskets. I'm still getting coolant leaking into the engine oil from somewhere? ...

Take the head to an engineering shop so they can pressure test it to see if its cracked or bent. If its bent / twisted slightly they can skim it, if its cracked they might be able to weld it otherwise you need a new head.

1999 isuzu rodeo 2.2L over heating.

The blower your referring to is the unit responsible for moving the hot air out of the heater core so if the blower isn't on the hot air won't come out.

92 isuzu rodeo overheating still

u says that u didn't replace the thermostat yet
Your thermostat is sticking. DO NOT DRIVE if the car overheats, you can do some serious engine damage, if you haven't done so already. Get the thermostat changed out immediately.

What happened is your thermostat is sticking. It was stuck and you saw it overheat (and should have stopped immediately). The added pressure from having a stuck thermostat pushes the fluild into the overflow.

The temperature may have gone back to normal if the thermostat "finally" opened. However, since the thermostat is sticking, it is unreliable and I would get it replaced.

Driving when the engine overheats can easily cause gaskets, such as the head gasket to fail and heads to warp. If this has occurred, you're looking at a new engine.
