Question about 1996 Isuzu Rodeo

1 Answer

I am replacing the water pump on my 1996 Isuzu Rodeo. One of the water pump bolts is under the lower timing belt cover. However, the lower timing belt cover appears to connect around the crank shaft behind the three lower pulleys. How do I remove the pulleys so that I can remove the lower timing belt cover? What size and type wrench should I use? Thanks, Ralph

Hello Ralph,

What you actually going to have to do is take both timings covers off eventually. The waterpump is driven by the timing belt, and will have to be removed along with various other components.

The pulley bolted to the crankshaft will have to be removed, as well as the entire fan assembly. I forget what the socket is I used on it, but I believe it was 1-1/8".

If you send me an email to sernst@insightbb.com, I'd be more than happy to send you a .pdf file that details what you are getting into. Too long to list on here.

Best regards,
Steve

Under the plastic covers. It runs off the timing belt. Make sure you replace the belt then replacing the water pump. Make sure you have ALL of the timing makrs lined up BEFORE disassembly. You should have the tool for holding the cams in place so they do not move. VERY important.

I have a 95 Isuzu rodeo. The engine makes a loud, almost diesel engine noise. When I am accelerating, the noise seems to go away. When I was shopping for this vehicle, I saw many ads that said their's make...


ATTENTION!! Do not run the engine if you do not want to have to buy an engine!! I just solved this problem with my own 95 Rodeo the problem you are having is common on 95 rodeo with 3.2 L engine. Failure of the hydralic timing belt tensioner will allow the tensioner pulley to knock against the top of the tensioner unit ( inside timing cover lower left side of crank pulley little cylinder looking part ) held in by 2 bolts when you take it off if you can depress the button its bad . Dealer has part for $110.00, so go to auto zone but they dont have it listed for 95 rodeo have them look up timing belt tensioner for 95 honda passport $76.95 takes 2 days VDO (Vendor Order only) not a very hard job have fun dont forget to change the timing belt and water pump for good measure after the complete job is done you should not have to worry about it for another 70,000 miles.have a good day

Water pump replacement 96 isuzu rodeo


Remove belt, fan, fan shroud and fan bracket. Remove timing covers, timing belt and water pump. Replace timing belt and the hydraulic tensioner with new ones. I suggest you get a mechanic to do this as you can easly get it out of time. Not an easy job.
