My daughter has been driving the '94 Rodeo V6 and contacted me today from work about 'white smoke from engine area and sounds like the fan is hitting something.' I investigated and found:
1) engine cool, low water, put in well over a quart.
2) water drips along the front passenger edge of the engine and off the alternator bracket to the ground

I'm thinking water pump, hate trying to replace it in a parking lot, so I'm looking for any info to either help me diagnose it as something else, or bolster my resolve.

Thanks in advance oh Isuzu owners!!!!!

If is coming out at the edge of the timing cover then most likely it is the water pump. You'll want to get a timing belt and tensioner set. Some people have had trouble with certain brand tensioners I can't find the brand that sucked. But the gates belts are good to use.
