Question about 1999 Isuzu Rodeo
It is easiest to place the car on a lift and remove the alternator from the bottom. Disconnect the belt FIRST, then the wiring, and then the bolts mounting the alternator. Installation is the reverse. Make SURE you have the correct alternator for your application. Voltage regulators for the 4 cyl and V-6 were different.

The alternator is located on the passenger side of the motor at the bottom. There is a bracket attached to the motor and the alternator. You need not take the bracket off to remove the alternator. Two bolts hold the alternator to the bracket. One bolt is on the front top of the alternator and one bolt is located on the bottom front of the alternator. The bottom front bolt is attached to the tension adjustment for the alternator. Loosen the tension screw then remove the bolt going through the tension adjustment. After you loosen the top, front bolt, the alternator should be loose enough to move side to side. Remove the top, front bolt. Now you must disconnect the alternator from the power supply. Behind the alternator is a screw with a wire attached via nut. Remove this wire. Nextly there is a series of wires with a plug on the end. It is plugged into the side of the alternator. Uplug this item. You can also access both of these from the passenger side front tire well. Something to consider is that remanufactured alternators in Rodeo's as well as the Honda Passport (which has the same engine as the Rodeo) do not work and the problem(s) associated with a bad alternator,ie; not charging, no fan blower, battery light and brake light on, still exsist after replacing alternator with reman. Use a factory original alternator if possible. It will cost a little more than a reman but will most likely save you a lot of time and headache!
Hope this helps you out!!

Well, as you said, Isuzu engineers are not the brightest. We are in the process of trying to figure out how the oil got full of water! If anyone has experience in the 3.2 V6 2000 model and where the likely failed spot for the cooling system is, I'm all ears.
To your problem, the thermostat housing is located under the intake manifold, yes under it. You will have to remove the intake and fuel injection system (lots of fun) to get at the hard pipe lines under and in the front of the engine. Once there removal and replacement of the thermostat is easy.

This has to do with the Auto's Computer system and should ONLY be done by a Factory Rep who knows what he/she are doing. not a home mechanic chore!!
