Question about Isuzu Rodeo
Its running hotter than usual. its a 2.6L manual engine
You need to pinpoint the problem by measuring he temperatures of the system.
1. If the engine is 190f and the upper hose is warm, but the lower hose is cold, you either have a thermostat problem, or a bad water pump.
2. if both the hoses are as hot as the engine then you have either a bad fan (is it running at normal speeds?) or a bad radiator.
3. When cold, leave the cap off, is it full? do you see continuous bubble as it runs? when you start it does coolant spray out (from a cold start) if so then you could have a bad head gasket.

The image isn't loading, so I can't tell if this has been 100% answered, but here's the text version:
Should be a fuse panel under the hood, passenger side near the coolant tank and radiator inlet. In that panel should be 2 large square fuses. These are fuse/relay combo deals. Switching these out should fix you right up. Mine had the same problem about a month ago and I had to replace them then.

ATTENTION!! Do not run the engine if you do not want to have to buy an engine!! I just solved this problem with my own 95 Rodeo the problem you are having is common on 95 rodeo with 3.2 L engine. Failure of the hydralic timing belt tensioner will allow the tensioner pulley to knock against the top of the tensioner unit ( inside timing cover lower left side of crank pulley little cylinder looking part ) held in by 2 bolts when you take it off if you can depress the button its bad . Dealer has part for $110.00, so go to auto zone but they dont have it listed for 95 rodeo have them look up timing belt tensioner for 95 honda passport $76.95 takes 2 days VDO (Vendor Order only) not a very hard job have fun dont forget to change the timing belt and water pump for good measure after the complete job is done you should not have to worry about it for another 70,000 miles.have a good day

Testimonial: "This was the exact problem with my Rodeo. Thank You so much."
with my experiance on these engines it's usually the upper outlet hoses running from the heads into a t then into the upper radiator hose they are pain to replace but 3 out of 3 of my v6 isuzu's have had the same problem you'll have to pull off the theromstat and the coil pack the hoses are very small and run from the end of the heads one on each into a t then into the radiator hose just under the housing
