Question about 1997 Isuzu Rodeo
The tapping is possibly sticking lifters or damaged rocker arm shafts. The steaming and coolant smell maybe a leaking head gasket or worst a cracked cylinder head. If you have a coolant pressure tester you can remove all the spark plugs and then apply pressure to the cooling system. Leave it set with pressure applied for 15 min. then spin the engine over with the starter and see if there is water coming out of the spark plug holes.
