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.

How do you fix an oil leak on a '95 Isuzu pickup at engine front plate gasket?

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

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.

Should you buy an Isuzu rodeo?

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.
