Wrong Head Gasket or installed wrong

Other possible problems

Given it is over 20 years old, do you really
want to invest even the time into working on it?

Who did the engine repairs,couldn't be a repair shop
or it would have acted up before you got it back!

SOURCE: 92 isuzu rodeo overheating still

hey
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.

SOURCE: timing settings for a 1998 isuzu rodeo

You didn't say whether you had a V6 engine or a 4cyl. Here is the procedure for a V6.

It sounds like he moved the cam shaft independently of the crankshaft or other camshaft so you will need to do all these procedures:

1. Turn the crankshaft until the mark on the spocket is lined up with the mark on the oil pump housing (the mark is on the driver's side at 90 degrees to the sprocket itself).

2. Back off the crankshaft counterclockwise 1/8 turn to ensure the pistons aren't at top dead center. This gives the valves room to move without hitting the piston.

3. Turn the passenger's side camshaft until it "jumps" into place with the alignment mark on the camshaft pully is pretty close to being lined up with the mark on the engine head.

4. Turn the driver's side camshaft until it "jumps" into place but this won't be perfectly lined up with the mark but will be about an 1/8 turn off from the mark. Then line it up by hand.

5. The idler pulleys and tensioner pulleys should be installed on the engine but the tenioner pulley adjuster (it is a little cylinder with a rod coming out of it that is held in place by 2 bolts) should be removed.

6. Place the new belt on the crankshaft first. Be sure the arrows on the belt point in a clockwise direction. If you have a belt with lines and dots then the lines will line up with all markings that you have lined up together. The dots should line up at the 270 degree point on the crankshaft (opposite of the lines and the markings).

7. Loop the belt around the tensioner pulley, around the passenger's side cam, under the waterpump, around the driver's side cam, and finally around the idler pulley. Check all alignments.

8. Put the tesioner adjuster in a vise and squeeze it together until you can place a small drill bit or allen wrench through the holes to keep it compressed.

9. This is the tricky part. You will need to install the tensioner adjuster and that will require some moving of the belt to allow enough play to get the adjuster in place. This may move the passenger's side alignment. If so, you will need to try it again. I find that if you move passenger's side alignment mark clockwise by one tooth of the sprocket, then when you go to put the tensioner in place it lines up. You may find other tricks to overcome this challenge.

10. Once you think you have everything lined up. Use a wrench to turn the crankshaft sprocket 2 full turns. Listen closely and feel for any hard resistance as you do this to determine if the pistons are hitting the valves. If you believe they are hitting each other thenrepeat the adjustment procedure. Not doing this can ruin the valves or more.

11. If everything seems OK. remove the drill bit or allen wrench from the tension adjuster. Perform step 10 again for one final check.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: water pump replacement 96 isuzu rodeo

Remove belt, fan, fan shroud and fan bracket. Remove timing covers, timing belt and water pump. Replace timing belt and the hydraulic tensioner with new ones. I suggest you get a mechanic to do this as you can easly get it out of time. Not an easy job.

SOURCE: replace thermostat on isuzu axiom

I just had a garage replace my thermostat on my 2002 Isuzu Axiom. The book calls for 2 hrs labor, no way. iI took the garage more like 5 hrs plus, they ate the additional 3 hrs of labor. Note, the intake manifold must be removed and even then special tools are needed because it is still buried deep down. The garage took pictures ot this one because of how ridiculours Isuzu designed the location.

Hi, I am working on my dad's 1993 Rodeo. He said that the only problem was the radiator. So he had some mechanic replaced the radiator. Somebody used the car, and it overheated. The radiator is empty...


Hello Alex...Anytime you have coolant in the oil and it's not the engine oil cooler it means the engine must be disassembled to locate the failure. The next options are not so pretty. There are three causes for coolant in the motor oil and all require engine dis-assembly....This can be tricky because often the repairs overlaps and it is difficult to tell which one is causing the problem....Always check the intake gasket first on V type engines. Then the cylinder head gaskets, cylinder heads, and finally the engine block...

Good luck and i hope this helps FixYa!

LEAKING ANTIFREEZE TOWARD BACK OFMOTOR ISUZU RODEO 2001 4 CYLINDER


First check the two 3/4" hoses going into the firewall. if those are clean, it will be a blown head gasket. Are you getting a lot of white smoke and sweet-smelling exhaust? If so, you're leaking antifreeze into the cylinders too. Also check your oil for frothyness or greyish oil (using dipstick) - if that's true, antifreeze is in your oil. All of which are conditions of a blown head gasket - it just depends where the gasket failed.

IF it's only leaking on the outside of the engine, you can try a stop-leak coolant additive. These only work if you're only leaking on the outside - will not work if leaking in the oil or in the cylinders. And then they only work some of the time - I have had it work with perfect success in the one time I used it (was a copper color liquid). Sometimes that's better than putting in the money to replace the gasket...

There is oil in the water, do you think its my oil cooler? And if it is, is the oil cooler attached to the radiator or is it seperate?


It could be the oil cooler if the radiator has gotten a split between the oil cooler and antifreeze compartments.

More likely is that you have a blown head gasket or cracked head or something wrong with the motor.

The engine misses on 3 and 4 and compression leaking into radiat


If you do in fact have compression (air) blowing in to the cooling systems this would show either a blown head gasket, warped head or cracked head. Please od not run the Rodeo until repaired as if coolant is getting in to the cylinder or oil (Your oil will look like chocolate shake) it can do severe damage. What motor please 3.0 V6?

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.

As far as the price goes, the head gasket set at AutoZone is almost $300 which means you would obviously pay more than that at your mechnic shop.  I will check on the central pivot axis and get back with you.  Did he tell you a code number that is popping the Check Engine light off?

2600 engine 1996 model


Remove the cam and double check the journals. If the truck had gotten hot enough, it could've scarred the journals. Make sure the journals are nice and smooth. If they're not, it will cause a bind on the camshaft causing it to "grab". I just went through this on a Lincoln Navigator.
