Engine Cooling problem
2001 Isuzu Rodeo Question 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 185000 miles
looking at a used rodeo add said runs hot went to look owner said it overheats (might be head gasket) did not have tools to check plugs the engine ran rough when I cranked up the RPM's it really didn't smooth out let it run about 5 mins tail pipe was not pushing anything (no steam or black) when I wiped the inside of the tail pipe it was black soot and very tacky didn't seem to be water my question is is there any way to find out if it is just the head gasket without opening up (taking off the head) if that is my only option is there any specialty tools required besides torque wrench
have the same problem?
