I have a 96 rodeo and I left it running about 5 min in my front yard and came our to find it over heating so I shut it down and had some running to do. when I got back it had cooled down so I put some water in it and I noticed it was taking quite a bit of water so I looked underneath and it looked like the water was running out on both sides of the front of the oil pan.

I checked the oil and it looked to just be oil no water in it so the question is could it be any thing else but a radiator, water pump, bad hoses,.

I have only had the car three weeks and was begining to be impressed with it. It has 128K miles on it. Any thoughts on the subject would be helpful

I read another post where a guy spent
$3K on parts and part of them was a radiator and thermostat . I already have a new theremostat and wander if you can get a after market radiator?THANKS: Sams dad 42

Sounds to me like a probable water pump. With that mileage, it likely needs a timing belt change anyway. Hopefully the engine hasn't been damaged from overheating, but it will be difficult to tell until after the immediate coolant leak in repaired. Don't give up on your Isuzu just yet, they're great vehicles!
