SOURCE: 1992 Isuzu Rodeo Distributor wires 3.1L engine

Hi,
Isuzu seem to have complicated things by changing engines, firing orders and even direction of rotation! As you can see, they've numbered the cylinders the other way than the 3.2L.

The Firing sequence for the 3.1 (traditional distributor) 6 cylinder is as follows -

If you take the distributor cap off, there should be a "No.1" formed on the inside. Stick a lead on this before you put the cap back on and go from there.
As leads are different lengths, you may have to swap a few to find the best fit.

I think 2 of them will look out of place - but that's the way it's designed. Just make use of clips for holding them neatly.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Passenger side of vehicle. Look under vehicle around the rear door area. Inline filter.
Buy the Haynes or Chiltons. Well worth it for the vehicle. Also hondaautomotiveparts(dot)com can get you decent prices on some items. Isuzu Rodeo and Honda Passport are the same car (made by Isuzu). It atleast has a good breakdown of parts with pictures.

Easy fix. Usually the blower motor resistor gets messed up. (Page 3-8 Haynes manual 47017). The dash light could be a few things. All my bulbs went bad. Little bit of a hassle but no problem with the book.

SOURCE: 1997 Isuzu Rodeo. four-wheel drive

There's a vaccum switch on your front axle thats probably corroded and stuck. It's common, especially if you don't use very often. There could be other problems but this is most common. Of course check to see if the vaccum lines are still attached. Mines bad too and I could only find it at the dealer. It was $180.00. If your mechanically inclined, read about this on isuzuforums.com and buy manual front hubs and by pass this system. New warn hubs are only $80.00 and much stronger, this is a very easy modification.

How do i drain the radiator on 1997 rodeo i don't see the drain plug


If this is a 1997 Isuzu Rodeo with a 3.2L engine, this is where the drain plug is. You will have 2 transmission coolant lines attached to the bottom of your radiator. The drain plug is approximately 2-3 inches from the coolant line that is closest to the drivers side of the car. Real hard to see. It may be partially covered by the rubber padding that the radiator sits on, but it is right there by the transmission coolant line that is closest to the drivers side.

1997 Isuzu rodeo still will not start. I replaced the fuel filter, pump, and strainer and now the gas is getting through. I checked the plugs and cleaned them. They have a spark but, still did not help. ...


Try changing the Idle Air Control Valve. It is a small device located on the throttle body, mounted to it with two screws. You can purchase one at Autozone.

My Rodeo had a similar problem and that unit fixed it.
