Customer Question
1999 2.2 Isuzu Rodeo...

1999 2.2 Isuzu Rodeo. Timing belt installation. It is installed but won't start.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

My friend installed it after he discovered and replaced 2 failed pulleys midway down the block that had failed. At first the engine ran very rough so he moved the belt around then it wouldn't start at all. He consulted the computer and realigned the top poulleys to no avail.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

In order for the engine to start and run you need good spark to the spark plugs, injector pulse, proper fuel pressure and good compression. You need to check each one of these thing starting with the engine compression . Post back with the results and we can work from there. If the timing is off, the compression will be affected. Let me know.
