#74 of 186 Re: 1999 Isuzu Rodeo serpantine belt [brianrichardsm]
Dec 15, 2007 (9:47 am)
Hi, saw your message, had the same issue with my 2002 rodeo with 12k miles. Serp belt with all cracks in it. I did mine myself all I used was a very large screw driver as a prybar on the belt tensioner so I can take the tension off and then slip the belt off. 10 minute job, DIY
I made a drawing of the belt and pully setup so I new how it went back on. I would suggest doing that makes it even an easier job. Good luck.

99 isuzu rodeo 2wd. My question has two parts to it. One is that my fan (radiator or fan that blows a/c i don't which one really) keeps blowing after my engine has been shut off. It will blow for about 15 seconds or so. However, it usually stays on when i have my air condition (or just air) blowing. So usually to fix the problem, before i turn off the ignition, i shut off the air and it doesn't do it. But in the morning, regardless if i turn the air off, it still does it.
The second thing is also in the morning when i first turn on the rodeo, the RPMS stay high while changing the gears (it's a standard), this happens for about a good 5-10 minutes i guess while the engine warms up, then i can change gears and they stay where they're supposed to be.
I just wanted to know if anyone can help me out or give me ideas as to what the problem might be before i take it into a mechanic. Thanks a lot.
#79 of 186 95 Passport Starting Issues
Jan 17, 2008 (6:59 pm)
I have 95 Passport LX w/auto trans. I have intermittent problem starting the car - turn key and single click. battery is fine. when this does not happen, starter is fine - no sluggishness. When it doesn't start, found that jiggling the shifter - or resetting battery terminal connector will sometimes get car to turnover. Anyone have suggestions on this intermittent problem? mechanics have said to replace the starter - but this was done a few years ago (should last longer than that...) and when it starts okay there is no sluggishness.... ??? any ideas?

My 99 Rodeo is having the same problem. I was just about to attempt replacing the starter when I saw your post. If replacing the starter doesn't fix the problem, does anyone have an idea what will?????

Have a 14 mm socket on a 1/2 drive ratchet ready. I drew a diagram of the way the belt routes and it's saved the each time I've had it off to either replace or do other maint. You will need to pry the tensioner downward (the idler pulley side) and then you can remove the old one and replace it. It's got a good bit of tension, that's why I've found a 1/2 drive ratchet makes it a bit easier.
