Question about 1995 Isuzu Rodeo

1 Answer

I have a 1995 rodeo with a 3.2l sohc motor. I need help setting the timing belt into place. bought vehicle disassembled and replaced both heads with new ones and now am in need of help setting up the sprockets. Motor is now at TDC on the #2 piston, but my cam sprockets won't line up.

    The marks on the sprockets don't coincide with the timing mark on the cover plate. I got the right side sprocket to line up with a few turns of the cam, but the left side will not line up exactly with the timing mark on the cover. I have clips holding the belt into place to prevent sliping. The left side seems to line up between mid turn, never stops at the exact timing mark on the cover like the right side does.

What do you mean won't line up? is the belt brand new? You should be able to line them up no trouble. mark your sprockets with something when they are at TDC so you know exactly where it is without having to redu this. if you can give me a more detailed description of why the sprockets won't line up that would help. Thanks.

How do i change the timing belt?


This is a long process. The good news is you can do it without pulling the motor. THe bad news is you need 2 floor jacks and a set of jack stands to do that. You will need to go to Auto Zone and borrow the Chrysler Harmonic Balance pulley puller as that is the only special tool you should need to do the job. I highly recommend you get the Haynes Repair manual on this vehicle for this job. If that belt broke while the motor was running I will tell you know that you will need to have the head repaired because it will have bent every valve in the head assembly. After jacking the vehicle up and supporting both sides with jack stands you need to put a floor jack under the motor near the outside edge passenger side, Remove the tire and disconnect the lower engine support strut from teh motor then the upper support. After disconnecting and removing the belts remove the intake manifold, power steering pump, and supports then lower the engine several inches to gain access to the Harmonic balance bolt. Remove the bolt then use the special tool and insert to remove the Harmonic Balance pulley. Remove the timing belt covers and front plate that attaches to the upper motor mount arm from the motor, it's a tight fit, Remove the Valve cover and follow the proper removal sequence for the head bolts. DO NOT FORGET TO SET THE MOTOR TO #1 TDC BEFORE starting this job. Remove the spark plugs and lift the head off. (I assume you know to remove the wires and disconnect the radiator lines from the motor before starting.) Remove the remains of the old timing belt, realign the harmonic Pulley, place the head on and follow the bolt tightening sequence to torque it down correctly and align the cam pulley so that #1 valves are both closed and the #3 intake valve (the valve on the left) is open and the other valve is closed which should put the Cam Shaft key guide for the pulley at 12 o'clock. Compress the Timing Belt tension pulley with an allen wrench in the small hole and place the timing belt in place, release the tension arm. Put everything back in place reversing the order you disassembled them in and once everything is back it should start right up. I've done this 4 times on this model vehicle. Takes about a day and a half to get everything done if you can get the head back that fast. You really need the Haynes Manual for the Torque sequence and Torque settings for that head. Being Aluminum it breaks and bends very easy with you don't follow the right sequence. You will need a new Head Gasket, Valve cover seal, front seal and Intake Gaskets (There is one for each cylinder) Most of the nuts and bolts are 10mm, 12mm, and 11mm with a few 14 mm. I recommend sockets and 2 of each wrench with both open and box ends. The main bolt on the balance pulley is a 21 mm.

Timming belt / jump time want to repace belt


honda DOHC and SOHC motors have "zero tolerance" motors, this means if they "jump timing" they need to be inspected for head/valve damage, have this done before spending money on replacing the timing belt

for the3.3 v6 single over head cam or ( SOHC ) which is what your vehicle should have. And ( 60,000) miles for 3.0 v6 (SOHC ) but this is for 1995-98

Timing Belt Snapped on 95 Rodeo


that vehicle is listed as an interference motor which means it could have bent the vavles or even hurt the pistons. One way to check is pull the plugs and perform a leak down test if air leaks out the intake or ex you have bent valves. Also if you know someone with a good quality bore scope you can put it in the plug holes and look at the valves and the pistons. How much to fix is hard it depends on how many miles are on the truck and what shape it is in to see if it is worth it to do. If the vehicle has very high miles you may want to look at a junkyard motor with lower miles may be the best route but if you get one with over 60000 miles on it replace the t-belt before installing to be on the safe side

Changing a head gasket on a 1984 rodeo 2000 g200 kb28 with a sohc. How do i take off the timing chain?


there is a special tool. it holds the chain against the hydraulic tensioner and on the cam sprocket. you need this to prevent tensioner from loosing its prime and keep the timing from moving. once tool is in place remove bolt holding cam sprocket and you lift head off leaving chain and sprocket in place.
