== == == == Low octane fuel will cause this. Run a tank of high octane (PREMIUM) through it or add a bottle of octane boost in a full tank and it should go away. I have a 95.5 Honda Passport with 3.2 V6. I tried the higher octane method and to no help to my problem. switched to mobil 1 synthetic 5w/20 as recommended by everyone who has had this problem- has helped some- still a low tap sound (apparently this is an inherited problem with this engine- the oil return ports are too small and if the gather any trash/gunk- can become clogged and cause the tapping sound- I do an engine oil flush with every oil change). I will be replacing my timing belt later this week- its been stated that the sound could be timing belt slapping. engine is strong- runs good- have 211,000 miles on it- the tap started about 160,000 miles. It think its way overdue for that timing belt. updated a week later: replaced timing belt (bando brand- factory OEM part) (note- timing belt was worn - considerable amount of slack in belt= hence belt slapping the belt cover and causing a ticking sound) and all related components including water pump and tensioner replaced. I did oil change (Mobile 1 5w20 synthetic) including flush - replaced spark plugs and plug wires (note: used the bosch ultima plugs on last tune up- reduced performance- reduced gas milage considerably- gone back to standard NGK platinum plugs). tap noise is eliminated- engine is running smooth- far better performance and fuel economy noticed in first 500 miles. Before, I averaged about 360 miles per full tank- now I am getting about 420 miles per full tank of fuel. Note: good timing belt replacement information and possible tapping noise in valve train solution found at http://forum.planetisuzoo.com/viewtopic.php?t=13189
will a 3.2L 2000 Isuzu Trooper engine fit a 3.2L Isuzu rodeo transmission
Where can I print a engine/timing diagram for a 1999 2.2 Isuzu rodeo?
Yes, but you don't want the 2001 engine, it has more issues than the 1999 engine.
cylinder one on a 2002 isuzu rodeo 3.2 engine is on center drivers side
yes they were made with the same engine
What are the torque specs for the rod and main bearings for a1999 isuzu rodeo 2.2. engine
The EGR valve on a 95 Isuzu Rodeo is located on the back top of the engine. It resembles a cylinder.
on the right side of the engine
If you mean the 3.2 litre V6,engine, no- 6VDI then it's Isuzu's Own engine and NOT a GM earlier type.
The freezer plug in a 3.2 Isuzu Rodeo is a easy find. The freezer plug is located on the left side of the engine.
if you are talking about the 2.2 engine then yes. if you mean the 3.2 V6 then no.
