#1875 of 2315 Timing belt question.....
Jan 21, 2006 (3:08 pm)
I have a question about the timing belt on my 1996 Honda Passport. The truck only has 120K on it, but I'm unsure if the previous owner ever replaced the timing belt. I'm almost sure that I'm going to do it in the very near future so that I know that it has been done. My question is that in the Haynes manual that I bought that covers the Honda Passport (Isuzu Rodeo), it states that the engine is in fact an "interference" engine. This means just what it sounds like-that the valves and pistons will be damaged if for some reason the pistons continue to rotate after the valves have stopped operating which is exactly what happens if your timing belt snaps with the engine running. I've read elsewhere in this forum that the V6 is a "non-interference" engine. Who's right here??

I've read somewhere that the transfer case will grenade if you ever use four wheel high or low on the street. This sounds true and I'm glad that I've never tested that theory. Anyone ever heard something similar??

Yep, 3.2L is non-interference.It was few reports on net people put t-belt incorrectly, turned the engine and no damage happen. 60K is way too soon, but 120k between changes about time to start thinking of one.I saw 1 report original belt broke at 120k mi.More offen leaking water pump(you will see coolant) or failed T-belt hydrolic tensioner(you will hear it) reason for belt to fail.
About 4x4, it will bind on turn on dry surface,there is no cluches or cental differential to provide diff in wheel speed. If you try to push it, it may grenade tc as well.a

Has any heard of this part?
My wife took our 01 Rodeo LS 4x4 in for a transmission gasket replacment and we were told the Gas Mileage Regulator was bad.
I can't find any such part on the net.
#1879 of 2315 1997 Isuzu Rodeo 5-speed manual transmission
Jan 23, 2006 (11:19 am)
I have a 1997 Isuzu Rodeo with the Borg Warner 5 speed manual transmission. I need to replace the tail piece as it is cracked and leaking oil. Where can I find just the tail piece and how hard is it to replace?
#1880 of 2315 Passport troubles
Jan 23, 2006 (1:42 pm)
I have a 98 passport. I am currently being driven crazy with problems. It is idling high, the brake and battery lights are on. And there is always a problem with the gas guage. I could have filled it an hour ago and the light comes on. I read that may be a bent arm on the reader. Could the idling be acting up because the butterfly valve is sticking? Would that effect the brakes or battery? Where exactly is the butterfly valve anyway?
#1881 of 2315 97 Rodeo transmission shift points
Jan 27, 2006 (2:18 pm)
My 97 Rodeo transmission upshift points are exactly 15 and 30 mph. Is this normal? It is a little annoying in a parking lot or school zone. Other than that the transmission shifts pretty smooth.
#1882 of 2315 Noise from the spare tire on the back of my rodeo
Jan 27, 2006 (5:43 pm)
Noise from the spare tire on the back of my rodeoI have a 1991 Isuzu with the spare tire on the back. I think the bushings are gone if there is such a thing. Is there anything I can do that is inexpensive to get elevate the noise when I role over bumps in the road? ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED _ THE NOISE IS DRIVING ME CRAZY
#1884 of 2315 automatic transmission crisis
Jan 29, 2006 (5:54 pm)
I have a 1999 Isuzu Rodeo. My problem is this: sometimes, the only way I can shift the automatic transmission from Park to Drive, or from Park to Reverse, is to first press the brakes all the way to the floor, as hard as I can. Another option that occasionally works is to put the car in Neutral, pull up the emergency brake, and then shift to Drive or Reverse.
Does anyone know what is going on here? Strangely, when I press the horn, it continues to honk even when I release the pressure. I have to punch the wheel hard to get it to stop. Could these things be connected?
