Question about 1999 Isuzu Rodeo
I add for you, the dash gauge shows hot. but the engine/RAD is not too hot. infact still cold. right?
The dash gauge or its sender is bad.
use and IR gun for $15 and see that the coolant is
at 180F and the old crapppy gages is fibbing,
above poster forgets to read the COLD word.
and fails you big time.
I will now read the book for you.
the SM, service manual to see how yours works
most cars changed radically from 1996 to 2000
3.2L engine? oops both are same, had to look both.
the sensor has one wire
and is not the ECT sender with 2 wires.

The low coolant sensor should be located in the passenger side radiator tank, You need to take it out and clean the sludge off of it for it to work right. Or you can just unplug it and forget about it, the light will go out and it won't cause any problems.

you may have bad waterpump,the impeller on pump may be borken, just because it doesnt leak doesnt mean its good.also could have exhaust entering cooling system (bad headgasket) if pump is good have a block test done.

YOU COULD HAVE A DEFECTIVE WATER PUMP OR THERMOSTAT ALSO RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP.MAKE SURE YOUR WATER PUMP IS BEING TURNED BY DRIVE BELT.NOT SLIPPING.MAKE SURE COOLANT SYSTEM HAS BEEN BLED AND YOU HAVE HALF ANTIFREEZE HALF WATER.CHECK YOUR CRANKCASE WHEN CAR COOLS DOWN.IF OIL STILL LOOK LIKE MILK SHAKE.YOUR NEW HEAD GASKETS LEAKING.THE MECHANIC WHO REPLACED HEAD GASKET DIDNT DECK THE HEADS.THEY PROBABLY NEED SHAVED A LITTLE SO HEAD GASKET WILL SEAL.

The heater core is possibly blocked or the temperature adjuster is not working.
First check the controls to be certain that the temperature aduster is working and the flaps/doors that direct the flow of hot air are working.
If they are..........
Check heater hose temp. If one is hot and one is cold, you are not getting flow through the heater core.
Bleed it to remove an air blockage.
If that does not work, flush the system.
If that does not work, replace the heater core.

Sounds like you have a clogged radiator, i would recommend trying to flush it out before replacing it.
