Question about 1992 Isuzu Rodeo
Could be a few things. That I know of. Is the rad still good and does it have all the fins on it. If it doesn't it may not be "removing" the heat efficiently enough. Also where i live there are Summer and Winter Thermostats. Could you have gotten a winter one and tried to drive it in summer? I dont know what car you have either. The rad isnt being blocked by some aftermarket body kit? which would deflect air while driving around? Also make sure the catalytic converter isnt plugged. A friend of mine noticed his cat was red hot while it was plugged. That could transfer heat into the engine.. although i think this would be rare. Also make your if it is automatic, that it has the proper amount of tranny fluid. I've had transmissions burn up and caused the engine to heat up as well. (you could check to make sure the auto tranny fluid is a nice pink colour) If it is dark red or brown it definatly needs to be changed. And you could have an air blockage in the engine...blocking the coolant.. or have a faulty guage or sensor.

Check the timing. The car will overheat, as you discribed, when not properly timed.
