its fuzzy, i know. I can take a better one if you need it.

That is for the 1993-1997 3.2L SOHC rated at 175hp.

There is a 3.2 DOHC that is at 190HP from 95.5-97 also, I have no idea if the marks are the same. This solved my timing belt issue. :D

I have never seen a dohc obd1 motor in a rodeo? Didn't know it was an option, and am pretty sure isuzu didn't offer it in '96-'97. Any way not really the point.
My '96 lost a timing belt at around 130K. The teeth of the belt came off in a small section and the crank pulley was just spinning on that section. Good news is that a timing belt fixed it and there was no motor damage done. My '95 went to about 150K before the same thing happened.

yea there was an DOHC available from 96-97 IIRC because it had 190HP, it is the same engine though, so the marks are the same.

Luckily these 3.2L's are non interference. Belt goes, just realign it and change it and you should be good to go!

THE DOHC ENG WAS NOT AVAIL ABEL AFTER 95, THE SOHC,WAS UPPED IN HP IN 96 -97 TO 190 HP AND THE DOHC WAS NEVER USED IN THE RODEO UNTILL THE 98 NEW STYLE ENG

ACTUALLY ALL THE TIMING PULLEYS FROM 92-97 ARE INTER CHANGE ABLE IF YOU PAY ATTENTION TO THE TIMING MARKS , THE ONLY EXCEPTION IS THE PLASTIC PULLEYS USED 0N THE 96 AND 97 OBD11 ENGS WHICH HAD A MAGNET IM BEDDED IN THE PULLEY FOR CAM REFERENCE THESE COULD BE USED ON THE OLDER ENGS BUT THE OLDER METAL PULLEY CAN NOT BE USED ON THE 96 -97 ENG

Cool information Jerry!

Now I know some Rodeo's have Metal Timing covers, and some (like mine) Have Plastic. Is it possible to interchange them for the stronger metal versus the plastic? or are they different?

Thanks Jerry!

Well here's what happened tonight.
We got the timing marks lined up. And thought the crankshaft was right. We trues to start her up. Wanted to start but she didn't.

So. We figured the crankshaft was 180 degrees off. Fixed that tried again. She starts!

We put a gallon of antifreeze in her. Then we go get two gallons of water and some icees. We pit the water in. Start her up. Then while my dad is under the hood I notice. White smoke coming from the exhaust. No biggie we can atleast get her home right?

Well. Turns out that shes leaking and has either a cracked block or blown headgasket. So. Another night away from home for her.

Life is mean sometimes.

And the hole time this is going on.
My little brother is telling me about how his 87 4x4 jeep Cherokee. Is better than isuzu because its not Japanese. I told him id get you guys to prove em wrong. Did I mention his jeep doesn't even have axles? Haha. Stupid kids.

yes those covers are inter changable
BUT FINDING A COMPLETE SET IS HARD TO DO, AND THEY REALLY LOOK NICE CHROME PLATED

Okay. So. Were towing the rodeo home due to problems we can't fix in a parking lot.

We whent to uhaul. To get a trailer. They checked us out and we paid. But the tongue on the trailer was bent. Then they tried to give us a a tow doli. We said no. Got cash back. Now were picking up a different trailer.

And traffic on 35w south. Is bad for any our members in the area.
