rodeo won't turn over

05-24-2005, 11:43 AM
awhile back i was driving my 1994 rodeo and it seemed to be running alittle warm, so i turned off the ac and it seemed to cool back down
but with the windows open i heard this noise that sounded like a belt had broke and was flapping. so i pulled over, as i pulled over it started to lose power and once i stopped it just died.
i had a wrecker pick it up and bring it home. after a few days of sitting there i changed the oil in it and put new water in it
but it wouldn't start. thought maybe it jumped time but the timing belt is still intact. the pistons and rods move, it gets fire, but it just won't turn over. any ideas or suggestions
and what are the timing marks for the 1994 isuzu rodeo

it acts like it wants to start but it just won't turn over

I would go with your jumping timing theroy.

that slapping sound could of been the timing belt tensor (which commonly go bad).

any advice on getting it back in time easily
do you go by the hash marks or the little dimples
