I have redone the heads on my 1996 Isuzu Trooper and have it back together. I now have a water leak between the trans and motor. Any idea and where/what now?Possibly freeze plug but where it may be located to save me some steps?

If the heads were appreciably milled to resurface them, you may have a poor fitting intake manifold (to the head ports). If so, the manifold will require similar milling to compensate for the heads--check with the shop that did the work. This used to be a problem in the '50's when trying to hop-up OHV V-8's. Any freeze plug would be in the block, not the heads.

The radiator of my 2003 isuzu trooper has a mixture of water and diesel now, and per mechanic, we have to replace the overhaul gasket kit and cylinder head (though without testing), can we just proceed...

how did the diesel get in there? are you sure its diesel fuel or is it motor oil? then it could be head gasket problem. Or trans fluid, which would make it milky pink? Then it could be the trans cooler in the radiator leaking. If someone accidently put diesel fuel in it then just flush it out. If it has been in there long enough to start ruining hoses then replace those. why does he say gaskets? how does it run? does it overheat? then maybee head gaskets. and resurface heads.

If you've just had the trans repaired then it definitely should not be leaking. I strongly recommend you take it back to the company that repaired it and get them to fix the problem. If it wasn't leaking before and is now, then they should repair it for free or at least discount the job. If it was leaking before and still is, then they should have fixed the leak while doing the repairs as it should have been obvious that there was a leak there. At the very least they should have told you that there was a leak and given you the option of fixing it.

Hope this helps,

Auto trans cooler on radiator?

yes it does, however you can get just a radiator and then have a larger aftermarket trans oil cooler. my question to you is is there a reason you want to not have an intergrated trans cooler/radiator?
