Question about 1995 Isuzu Rodeo

1 Answer

I have a 1995 1/2 Isuzu Rodeo with a 3.2L V6 SOHC engine. It has 57,000 miles on it so I am changing the timing belt. The manual (Haynes) that I have says and shows the alignment of the timing marks on the sprockets, belt etc. It says that the grove on the crankshaft sprocket should align with the cast in mark on the left side, front of the oil pump. At the same time the camshaft sprockets should align with the dots on the timing belt back covers as well as the solid lines on the belt. I have turned the engine over several times and am not able to get all marks to align. This is the old original belt that I am referring to. I have not relieved the tension on it yet. Please advise. Thank you, Neil Boardman

    When the timing marks are aligned on 1994-95 vehicles, no pistons will be at TDC/compression. When the timing marks are aligned on 19951/2-96 vehicles, the No. 2 piston is at TDC/compression.
    Very Important........Only tne 94-95

How can I tell if my 2001 rodeo need a timing belt

Well if you have the V6 engine, the belt is recommended to be changed at 80,000 miles. It is an interference engine, which means if the belt breaks you can damage the valves and pistons.
If the belt is broken, the engine will not start and may not crank.
