I would be running the fault codes to check for faulty sensors. To reset the CPU use a code reader but I suspect that will not be your problem

SOURCE: won't start after timing belt has been replaced

The cam pulleys turn 3 or more turns to one of the camshaft. You need to find someone that is experienced on this vehicle. Just aligning marks does not mean its in sync.

On a 1999 Isuzu Rodeo 3.2 V6 DOHC If you put all timing marks together on engine and then put timing belt mark all together on the engine and rotate two rounds with crankshaft does all the marks come

Just the engine. The marks on the belt are to make sure the teeth are in the right place when replacing. It might come back in place on 4 turns of the crankshaft. I have never checked to see if the belt marks came back. But always check the timing marks themselves.

Hope this helps.

Just had 90,000 km service done - mech replaced - timing belt/belt timing balance/alt belt and drive belt. Car runs like its a deisel and has a vibration and revs go grinding when at 2700 revs. Is there...

It does sound like they didn't get the timing right. If it ran good before then it should not have changed when they did the work. Don't let them give a line like something else broke. Make them fix it.

I have a Isuzu rodeo 1994 3.1 in I can't find the

The timing marks are stamped into the head and in the cam pulley, also on the crank and the case, find them and paint them white so you can see them, the new belts have the marks on the belt, they will line up, If they don't , you got it wrong, You can do this without spinning the cams or crank and losing the marks, as long as the belt marks line up, you will be all set. Put the pin in the tensioner before removing the belt. Did you change the water pump? And I think the engine is 3.2L. Get it in there and pull the pin, It should be right on. Turn over the engine by hand a couple times to make sure it comes around on the marks. If it is wrong, it will go about 11 or 12 miles, and you will need a new engine. Hope this helps.

I am replacing my timing belt and tensioners on my 1994 rodeo, when I removed the timing belt the right side cam sproket moved clock wise, I need to set the timing and do not have the steps the manuel does...

You were supposed to clamp the cams so they don't spin, not to worry, I think they will only go so far, your belt should have marks on it, If it doesn't take it back and get one with marks on it, you need these to line up with the marks on the cams and crank, if they don't line up, I'll give your engine 11 miles before that cams shatter. When all three are in line, you should be all set, pull the pin on the belt tensioner and let her rip, don't forget the water pump, you got in there, do it .

I need the timing to motor 3.2 .

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Remove the air cleaner assembly and intake air duct.
  4. Remove the upper fan shroud from the radiator.
  5. Remove the 4 nuts retaining the cooling fan assembly. Remove the cooling fan from the fan pulley.
  6. Loosen and remove the drive belts.
  7. Remove the upper timing belt covers.
  8. Remove the fan pulley assembly.
  9. Rotate the crankshaft to align the camshaft timing marks with the pointer dots on the back covers. Verify that the pointer on the crankshaft aligns with the mark on the lower timing cover.
    NOTE When the timing marks are aligned, the No. 2 piston is at Top Dead Center (TDC) compression.

    WARNING Align the camshaft and crankshaft sprockets with their alignment marks before removing the timing belt. Failure to align the belt and sprocket marks may result in valve damage.
  10. Use tool No. J-8614-01, or a suitable pulley holding tool to remove the crankshaft pulley center bolt. Remove the crankshaft pulley.
  11. If present, disconnect the 2 oil cooler hose bracket bolts on the timing cover. Move the oil cooler hoses and bracket off of the lower timing cover.
  12. Remove the lower timing belt cover.
  13. Remove the pusher assembly (tensioner) from below the belt tensioner pulley. The pusher rod must always face upward to prevent oil leakage. Depress the pusher rod, and insert a wire pin into the hole to keep the pusher rod retracted.
  14. Remove the timing belt.
  15. Inspect the water pump and replace it if there is any doubt about its condition.
  16. Repair any oil or coolant leaks before installing a new timing belt. If the timing belt has been contaminated with oil or coolant, or is damaged, it must be replaced.

To install:
  1. Verify that the sprocket timing marks are still aligned and that the groove and the keyway on the crankshaft timing sprocket align with the mark on the oil pump. The white pointers on the camshaft timing sprockets should align with the dots on the front plate.
  2. Install the timing belt. Use clips to secure the belt onto each sprocket until the installation is complete. Align the dotted marks on the timing belt with the timing mark opposite the groove on the crankshaft sprocket.
    NOTE The arrows on the timing belt must follow the belt-s direction of rotation. The manufacturer-s trademark on the belt-s spine should be readable left-to-right when the belt is installe
