Your transmission uses clutches and bands to operate in different gears as well as one way clutches. When you put it in Drive it uses a one way clutch (called an overrunning clutch) to help get moving, if this is broken your vehicle wont go but when you put it down into first a band also grabs and now it works. I imagine it works if you start off in first then manually shift it to second then drive. You should take it to a shop and have this repaired.

Sounds more like the alternator is still not putting out 100%...eventually your Izusu will quit running with a defective alternator...please have you don't get stranded...the battery will only run the car until it becomes low on power...sometimes the first sympton is limited can cause auto/shifting to be inconsistent...if high mileage, also consider adding a bottle of Lucas Oil Transmission draining necessary...excellent results. Hope this helps.

I just bought a used 2002 Isuzu Rodeo and after only two weeks the car is not going into gear when I take off from a stop. And to top it off, it died today after coming to a stop at red light. The check...

there is obviously a problem with the transmission and I would have it checked out by transmission specialist as soon as possible.It is possible to cause even further damage if you continue to use the vehicle. That will of course increase your repair bill.

Transmission, not wanting to go in gear

After replacing a transmission on one Rodeo for that problem, I discovered there is a transmission control module located on top of the transmission on the driver's side. Two bolts disconnect it. Wipe off the old electric grease, and put on new electric grease. Reinstall the part. I have now driven 30,000 miles on this fix. Needless to say, I was very unhappy with AAMCO. If your rodeo starts having that problem, drive only in third gear until you can fix this part. Planetisuzoo is very detailed on this fix.

1996 Rodeo Isuzu - I put it in Winter Drive and now 1 rear wheel

Based on another similar problem and it was fixed driving backwards, that's exactly what I did. I drove the Rodeo backwards and then would stop and put it in gear and did this for 10 minutes until I worked the 4x4 gear loose and now all four wheels run. I must say, I created quite a sight driving backwards in a Wal-Green's parking lot for 10 minutes.

My 2002 isuzu rodeo transmission is slipping should i first get it flushed before buying a transmission?

We had the same problem with a 2002 Rodeo. The transmission must be replaced. But keep in mind the Powertrain Warranty (yes this does cover the transmission) on 2000-2003 Rodeo's is 10yr/120,000 miles. Call 800-255-6727 with your vin# and they will verify. Good luck!
