1998 Isuzu Hombre 2.2L cranks but won't start.

After trying to start, did you pull plugs & inspect them for wet from fuel, as you said you smelled fuel like it was flooding? Also keep in mind MAP sensor also provides info to VCM which then regulates fuel delivery & timing from info supplied by MAP sensor.

Replaced battery. I have the 4-digit radio code but how can I reset and get my radio back?

do you know the 4 digit code, if you do then put the code in , follow the directions in your owners manual. If you know it you need to go to a GM dealer to have them to do it and it's not cheap .

My ignition is busted on my 1998 Chevy S10 allowing me to start it with anything but have to disconnect battery for long periods of time if it's idle can this cause shifting and braking problems?

there is a possibility that it could cause numerous issues, including shifting and braking problems(w/ABS). The vehicle is doing adaptive strategy each time you reconnect and drive. Vehicles have to go thru 3 drive cycles, and this doesn't mean 3 trips to the store and back, to readjust after memory is lost from battery interruption.

2003 s 10 4.3 good fuel pressure, cats replaced, maf and map replaced. Boggs down going uphill , runs good on flat roads. Cam retard is showing -9 at idle , can this cause the bogging down problem

Knock sensor may be bad causing idle to retard to stop spark knock . Carbon buildup in the cylinders on piston heads or around the valves can cause retardation as well as overheating .

There is a ticking sound

In order to give you a solution to your problem, I need to explain a little bit about the valve train in your engine, the engine itself, and how it works.

1.You have an Internal Combustion engine. It is a Four Stroke engine. The engine has a Cylinder Block with cylinders inside. There is a piston for each cylinder which goes up, and down. The piston/s are connected to a crankshaft. The crankshaft turns the transmission, which in turn turns the driveshaft, to the rear differential. The rear differential has axles, which the rear wheels are bolted to. The four strokes are , Intake Stroke, Compression Stroke, Combustion Stroke, and Exhaust Stroke.

The piston goes down the cylinder drawing the fuel/air mixture in. (Intake Stroke) The Intake valve opens. The piston comes back up the cylinder, and Compresses the fuel/air mixture. (Compression Stroke) Both the Intake and Exhaust valve are closed. The spark plug fires igniting the fuel/air mixture, and shoves the piston down. (Combustion Stroke) Finally the Exhaust valve opens, and expels the burnt gases. (Exhaust Stroke)
This page on Wikipedia.org, may help explain the process. The third 'photo' down on the right is an animation showing the process.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internal_combustion_engine
The animation shows an engine with an Overhead Camshaft. Your camshaft is located in the Cylinder Block, and not in the Cylinder Head, as shown.

2.Your Camshaft is a shaft with egg shaped lobes on it. As the tip of the egg shape comes to the top, it pushes up on a Hydraulic Lifter. This lifter in turn pushes up on a Pushrod, which pushes up on a Rocker Arm. The Rocker Arm in turn pushes down on either the Intake Valve, or the Exhaust Valve, opening them.

A Rocker Arm is shaped a lot like a See-saw. Just like the one's at a child's playground. As one side goes up, the other side comes down. The Pushrod pushes up on one side of the Rocker Arm, and the other side of the Rocker Arm pushes down on the valve, opening it.

A Hydraulic Lifter is a small cylinder that has a piston in it. Oil goes through a tiny hole in the side of the lifter, and this keeps the piston in a certain position. (That's why this lifter is named 'Hydraulic', because it uses oil inside) The Pushrod rests on this piston. The hydraulic action of the Hydraulic Lifter, keeps slack out of the valve train. The pushrod to rocker arm distance, and the rocker arm to valve distance.

What you are hearing, is a clicking sound from clearance being created, in-between the pushrod to rocker arm, and/or rocker arm to valve stem. A metal to metal clicking sound.

Solution? Depends on how mechanically inclined you are, or you may want to refer this job to an auto repair shop. The valve cover needs to be removed, and the nut on each rocker arm needs to be adjusted. Adjusting the nut down, (Clockwise), pushes the rocker arm down on the rocker arm stud, a little. This removes the slack, and makes things nice, and quiet again. Your engine will also run better, and you'll get better gas mileage.

DON'T do this, or have it down, and eventually the slack that is in there will increase. This will break parts! There IS a technique in doing this. If you know of someone who is good at adjusting valves, they can do it. They MUST be good however. If you adjust the Rocker Arm Nut too far down, you will lose power, and the exhaust valve face will burn. Not far enough down, and you get the clicking sound you hear now. About 1/4 turn down, to 1/2 turn down, should do it.

I want to know if the headlights on a 1998 Chevy S-10 are supposed to come on when it is started?

They are daytime running lights. If you turn the head lights fully on when it is dark they will be slightly brighter. It's a safety feature.

My 1998 s 10 is throwing the po440 code which is

There is no solenoid in your gas tank. It's either a bad purge or vent solenoid, a leak in a vacuum line or a leak in the charcoal canister. GM has experienced lots of problems with the vent valve and tubing plugging up and staying open. That causes the engine to suck in too much air and kill your gas mileage. Start by testing/checking the vent solenoid
