a '''valve cover gasket''' is not a $600.00 job it takes about 30mins tops. you could do that your self and save the cash. the valve cover is that piece that is on top of the engine, in some vehicles is the piece that has the "hole" from where you put oil in to the engine. 6 bolts tops.
now, if he meant a '''head gasket'' then yes it could be $600.00 or more.
On my 93 rodeo I had the valve cover gasket changed and it cost me $500.00. It was the labor that costs so much. The mechanic had to take a lot of stuff off that was around the gasket cover to get to and remove the cover. You may want to ask your mechanic how much of that $600 is labor costs.

Take it to a mechanic!
There are a number of reasons why 4x4 will notÊbe activated on your Isuzu Rodeo. This is mainly due to a wiring problem or a disconnect with the solenoid. You should ensure that a professional mechanic resolves the problem.Ê
Had the same problem with my 2003 Axiom... It was my intake gasket. 50 dollar gasket.... easy fix
where online can i order it at a cheap price?

All of that has to come off and the gasket replaced. Get you a manual on it from AUTOREPAIR2000.COM The problem is not a gasket. The leak is coming from your oil cooler which is problematic and prone to leaking. Replace the unit and your leak should stop. Good luck
might have a blown head gasket
I think your valve cover gasket may be letting oil leak out onto the hot engine. It then "burns" off releasing the smoke you refer to. If you replace the valve cover gasket it should correct the problem.
blown head gasket
check your timing
Yes. The tranny will not have enough fluid in it!
All used vehicles should be checked out by a certified mechanic. We bought our daughter a used 2002 Isuzu Rodeo sport and she has had it for over a year now. She loves it and we have had no malfunctions with it yet. It's a good little SUV. It gets about 24 miles per gallon on the highway, is comfortable and really easy to drive. I would buy another one.
The water pump is replaced as part of the timing belt package. Do it all at once or expect this to come up as a measure of competency in your mechanic
Bad gaskets- including a head gasket- would be a likely suspect.
how much fuel pressure should a 1999 Isuzu amigo have
== == == == There isn't one! Nor is there a way for you to check the level yourself- you must have a mechanic to do it.
the bank 2 is on the driver side i got this info from an Isuzu mechanic
yes, they are known for getting over 300,000 miles on them!
Check the Isuzu owner's manual for informational on the rear brake adjustment procedure. If the manual is not available to you, your local library may carry or you can seek advice from a certified auto mechanic.
There is not a dipstick. There is a plug in the side of the transmission case and the mechanic has to remove it and use a gauge to check the level.
