Question about 2002 Isuzu Rodeo
Need to know how to set the cam and engine timing in a 2002 rodeo 3.2
Start with crankshaft pulley. At the rear of the pulley is a notch. Align it with the mark on the oil pump.(No 2 piston is at TDC) There is also a groove on the pulley that needs to be aligned with the white dots on the cambelt. The lettering on the belt must be readable as viewed from the front of the vehicle.
(When seated in the vehicle the RH bank of the engine is on the RH side of the vehicle.Keep this in mind)
At the front of the camshaft pulley is a groove. Rotate the RH bank camshaft pulley to align this groove with the mark on the cylinder head cover. On the cambelt is a white line. This must also align with these marks. Do the same on the LH bank. To be sure the cams are now correctly aligned remove the cylinder head cover. On the camshaft drive gears the letters RI(Right intake) and RE(Right exhaust) will be at the top and readable for the RH bank. (For the LH bank it will be LI and LE) Reinstall the tensioner and rotate the crankshaft with a wrench to make sure there is no unintentional mechanical contact.
