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.

I would not really recommend buying a petrol engined Isuzu if you are thinking about fuel consumption.I think you will be lucky to get 8km/l and thats being generous.Rather go for a turbo diesel with around the same capacity and you should get between 12-14km/L.

I have an isuzu LX 320; the The 3 pistons on the passenger side are working; but those on the(drivers side} do not seem to be working; though all spark plugs are firing. What can be the problem?


no year car, stated, nor engine. nor country
welcome to USA forum, its best to state that and engine there.
its sure is V6, but which one???? some many made,
my guess is you have no timing light to seem that BANK fire wrong? "timing"?
that be like first trick out of the bag.
are you down under? (as in the land down under )
or africa, ?
Isuzu Frontier LX 320 V6 or
Isuzu KB 320 LX 4x2 P/U D/C
we dont have either of those 2 cars. or trucks. in the U.S.A.
nada, no cars, no books nothing. like that.
but some of our old 2004 and older have V6s
they dont see cars here now. they bugged out long ago.

id say the 3 pistons on that bank did not die.
but if the spark is hot on the dead bank then the coil pack is ok
if wired correctly , did you mess with that coil pack>?
if timed wrong then the cam belt slipped.

that is my wild guess, on a car never seen here.
ever.
next time man, up and say year, and country.
and if really savvy DISPLACEMENT of that V6
