after you did that did you hook it to a car computer to reset the lite? most need this and you can go to a auto zone and rent the computer for free just a deposit and then you get that back. the computer will do it almost for you.

My sincere apologies for the severly delayed response.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered questions. I have only been on this site for the past 4-months as a free contributor.

I do not know if you still need this information, however I am answering it in case you still do.

Click on the following direct Link. It has several Diagrams for your 1998 Isuzu RodeoTiming Belt. Included are step-by-step reagrding how to tighten it. There are also Photo's.

As far as how to install: It would take literally dozens and dozens of Pages using this type of forum on the Step-by-Step Procedures on Installion and Putting back the Engine together; including Torque Specifications of all Bolts and Nuts. I would strongly suggest purchasing a Haynes or Chilton's Manual, available at most auto parts store for $20-$25. They have the complete guidelines, diagrams, and phots you will need.

Again my apologies...
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at!

98 isuzu hambre 2.2 how to tell if timing chain is broke

The Isuzu, S10, is better name,...the wiki , is scary if read on this car.
sure the cam stops turning, and engine dies.
the GM 2.2L engine is OHV, chain,
the Suzuki 2.2L DOHC is belt drive !!! not chain.
The engine lost all spark can be cam dead.
remove the CMP cam sensor crank engine see it dead?
wont turn or is jumping oddly>? (slack chain)

the online FSM shows this as GM engine,
lost spark works like this.
if sparks gone.
the CMP and CKP sensors feed the PCm
the PCM then fires the ICM driver ignitors
to 2 coils
2 wasted spark coils.
do not mix the 4 HV wires or engine will not run
the firing order is PCM hard coded
to 1,3,4,2.
but fires them in PAIRS, called wasted spark.

short answer
engine will not start but cranks
spark gone all 4
spark timing all wrong (a timing light sees this easy)
look at cam, see it not turn
look at cam ,see it acts odd, jumping crazy.

Location or diagram Oil sending unit 98 isuzu hombre

what engine, THE CAR IS A GM s10 IN DRAG.
4.3L v6 Vortec 4300, GM
2.2l i-4, OHV ENGINE. NOT ISUZU!!!

In 1996, Isuzu replaced its Pick Up with a version of the Louisiana-built Chevrolet S-10, the Isuzu Hombre, based on the Brazilian market S-10
so google the vortec 4300
here Ill type for you....

on most v6, its near the oil gallery , on a bank.
so that means if youd look on both banks , the one with the 1 wire sensor is it.
but not this v6
its here.
log in to mitchell's and read, its all there.

How do you take the fan off of a 98 isuzu hombre

First, you have to take off the top half of the fan shroud. There should be two bolts that hold the two halves together, and another 2 holding it to the top of the radiator support. They take a 10mm wrench or socket. Once you have that off, you can take the 4 bolts out of the fan to remove it.

Isuzu Hombre pickup, 2.2L Vortec, Won't Start.

You need four things for an engine to run. 1. fuel 2. spark 3. compression 4. timing (spark at the right time. By your post it seems you have fuel and spark and you probably have compression unless you blew a head gasket. That leaves the timing. Check the timing and/or the timing belt or chain whichever you have.
