AWDmaster: This is interesting and informative! I am about to do the same procedure on
my Fiance's Rodeo, and it would be greatly appreciated if you would update
your progress! Also, I understand these things have a timing 'belt' rather
than a 'chain'. Thank you!
kbr12080: I have a 96 passport,165k miles,the thing always "ticked" and then it
knocked, replaced #2 rod bearing, crank was fine (it was shut down as soon
as the noise started) that being fixed, the tapping has gotten louder, and
I checked the timing belt & tensioner, but they are fine as well.........I
will be tearing into the heads tomorrow, and hope to keep my rig on the
road, thanks for the help, and if you have any 3.2 parts for sale cheap,
let me know!
Jassica: I have a 95 Isuzu Rodeo and had a bad lifter tick, I read around and found
Isuzu put out a news letter to owners that they need to use 0w-30 oil. I
had a really bad lifter tick and changed my oil to 0W-30 Synthetic and a
high flow oil filter like (K&N) and after I changed my oil my tick
disappeared in under 30 seconds after I started. I try to tell owners
whenever I see them driving around about this fix when I her there Rodeos &
passports ticking. .
mnbickford: I have posted up many other videos. This engine was to far gone and froze
up as soon as I got it running. The replacement that I found in the salvage
yard is from a 97 passport with 115k miles and ticks on both sides. I will
be performing these repairs again and post up some better walk troughs as I
now have more knowledge then I did going into it the first time.
Jassica: The OW-30 gets up into the into the lifters easier & the K&N filter is like
the nne Isuzu requested owners to use, which was a high flow oil filter.
The Lifter ticks were starting as soon as 5000 miles back in the 90's with
new Rodeos. I hope this helps those who were frustrated like I was with the
ticking. My Rodeo hasn't ticked since and if it does I change the oil and
its gone. Here is a list of what you need... Synthetic OW-30 Mobile 1 (
Walmart 5qt ) $25 K&N Oil Filter for Isuzu $10
Blog Dir: Building the website was not the hard part, but monetizing it was a whole new story. Thanks for the guidance about adsense. I am finally getting some money for my business directory. This is good for both business owners and customers. Keep building quality site and everyone wins.
