Hi, the timing has definitely jumped again and i think it's not starting because the cam has turned more than they crank. So you have to reset and get the DOHC's to line up with the crank.

You can do a compression test, compression should be at least around 128 psi with no more then 20 psi difference between cylinders.

Wrong belt. Check with parts store make sure you got the right belt. If that's not the case then one of your pulleys are worn out and causing it to jump time

Fans stay on

Well, it really sounds like you don't have enough reserve power in the battery. You ought to be able to run that fan for 20 minutes, but still start the car. But that is a different topic.

If the switch is old, the points might be ever so lightly welding themselves together from arcing when the fan is needed. Then the switch needs to cool more than it otherwise would to pull the contacts apart.

I would replace the fan switch in the radiator before doing anything else.

That fan runs from time to time even when the coolant is not overheated. It is designed to prevent overheating, not to correct overheating once it occurs (though it will do that too, if it comes to that).

Won't start

Have someone look at the valve-train movement through the oil fill cap while you crank the engine. Be careful of the fan and pulleys in front of the motor while cranking the engine. if you don't see the camshaft rotating inside the oil fill cap then your timing belt has failed. Did you have to jump-start this Rodeo?

2002 Izusu Rodeo timing problems

Check with your local Izuzu dealer, there is a procedure to set the cams in proper relationship with each other. This involves turning the cams up to 8 rotations to have them "jump" into the proper spot. I have had the same problem and found a bulletin that shows the correct way to time the engine.
