Question about 1999 Isuzu Rodeo
No. The throw out bearing is in a manual transmission. And it wouldn't be knocking, it would be screaming. The knocking, is, probably the timing belt tensioner. They get loud, especially on Rodeos and especially when they give out. Unless the engine is missing and skipping, I would suspect the tensioner. have you had the timing belt changed? Good thing. Get a new belt with the marks on it, and the tensioner, and a water pump. Change them all while you are in there. Trust me. I have 3 Rodeos. If you think it might be something else, a compression check might help, Or get a mechanic with a stethoscope to put his ear on it. Or get a piece of 1/2 dowel about 3 ft long, cup your hand over one end and put your ear in the cup and touch the other end, carefully to any part of the car while running, watch out for the fan and listen to the different parts. You'll here it and know where it is. Hope this helps.
