If you are not very mechanically inclined leave this to a shop, head gaskets can be very complicated for some. the block can be flushed once the head is removed or even before. the fan is actuated by a sensor (usually on the radiator). Replace it since the motor got that hot. Sorry to say you may have warped the head or even cracked it if the heat was that high. You need to invest in a mechanics manual for your vehicle and read all that pertains to cylinder head R & R before you attempt any of this yourself

Are the block and heads the same in an 98 Isuzu Rodeo 3.2 and a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo 3.2?

3 places you can get the answer.
1) dealer parts department
2) a salvage yard or parts store like auto zone or advanced auto.
3) a machine shop that does head repair. I would start here and have the donor head checked before i installed it and then found out it wasn't flat.

Hi, I am working on my dad's 1993 Rodeo. He said that the only problem was the radiator. So he had some mechanic replaced the radiator. Somebody used the car, and it overheated. The radiator is empty...

Hello Alex...Anytime you have coolant in the oil and it's not the engine oil cooler it means the engine must be disassembled to locate the failure. The next options are not so pretty. There are three causes for coolant in the motor oil and all require engine dis-assembly....This can be tricky because often the repairs overlaps and it is difficult to tell which one is causing the problem....Always check the intake gasket first on V type engines. Then the cylinder head gaskets, cylinder heads, and finally the engine block...

Good luck and i hope this helps FixYa!

My 1995 isuzu rodeo is overheating, We have already changed out the water pump and the thermostat. What else could it be?

if it overheats quickly, you may have a blown heat gasket - if it overheats slowly, check your fan clutch - if it is worn out the fan won't turn fast enough - also check inside the radiator to see if the passages are clogged - if there is a lot of build up around the openings then you will need to replace the radiator or take it to a radiator shop and have the top removed so they can clean out the passages - also make sure there is nothing obstructing the flow of air through the radiator like leaves or paper that might have blown up from the road - good luck and have a nice day :O)

The engine misses on 3 and 4 and compression leaking into radiat

If you do in fact have compression (air) blowing in to the cooling systems this would show either a blown head gasket, warped head or cracked head. Please od not run the Rodeo until repaired as if coolant is getting in to the cylinder or oil (Your oil will look like chocolate shake) it can do severe damage. What motor please 3.0 V6?

Blown head gasket. what is the cause? there is very high pressure in the radiator and eventually a lot of air and little coolant. it then starts over heating because all the coolant gets pushed out at the...

Running hot will cause head gasget to fail. Or if head is not torqued properly, or a faulty head gasget. Pressure in cooling system means, blown head gasget or cracked head.

92 isuzu rodeo overheating still

u says that u didn't replace the thermostat yet
Your thermostat is sticking. DO NOT DRIVE if the car overheats, you can do some serious engine damage, if you haven't done so already. Get the thermostat changed out immediately.

What happened is your thermostat is sticking. It was stuck and you saw it overheat (and should have stopped immediately). The added pressure from having a stuck thermostat pushes the fluild into the overflow.

The temperature may have gone back to normal if the thermostat "finally" opened. However, since the thermostat is sticking, it is unreliable and I would get it replaced.

Driving when the engine overheats can easily cause gaskets, such as the head gasket to fail and heads to warp. If this has occurred, you're looking at a new engine.
