I noticed lately after I got my timing belt,wp and tensioner replace I start hear knocking noise from the engine. It did made the noise before I got the timing belt changed but now its louder than ever. What might this be?
I havent done a timing belt on these yet myself so dont know from experience but I beleive there is more then 1 part to the tensioner. I recall reading some posts on other sites about a knock still being there after changing the tensioner but they didnt change all of it.
According to the Haynes manual it should use 5.7 quarts.
Mine doesnt have an oil pressure guage but this is from a post by someone that has a '99 trooper that he put an aftermarket mechanical guage in. I would think it should be around the same with a 97 rodeo 3.2
The mechanical gauge shows that although the <b style="color: rgb(255, 163, 79);">pressure[/b] goes up to 80psi+ when cold, as the engine warms up the <b style="color: rgb(255, 163, 79);">pressure[/b]
drops, typically showing 25-30psi at idle, 60psi at 1500rpm, 70psi at
2000rpm and peaking at 80psi at 2500 rpm up. The workshop handbook says
55-80psi at 3000rpm on a hot engine so my car is just fine.
I use 5w30 mobile 1 synthetic. Some are using 0w30 to help get rid of lifter ticking noises, others go as high as 20w50 to help with oil burning issues. So I dont think there is any set standard, just depends on what is wrong that you are correcting. I will say that 5w30 is probably the most common and what isuzu recommends.
