Question about 2003 Isuzu Axiom
Is it gicving you a code (P0502)? If so, that is my problem and I was informed it was a speed control sensor and it will cause it to shift rough from 1 st to 2 nd gear.

I had the same problem and found it was due to a trans oil leak on the 3rd gear Accumulator. there is a replacement part for the accumulator that will resolve the leak. It is not the easiest job i have done but should be something most could accomplish with moderate abilities. the trans oil replacement is a real pain. get the manual and enjoy, it must be done from under the vehicle.

check engine light indicates that the computer in your vehicle has sensed a electrical problem pretaining to the performance of the engine usualy a diagnostic scan would determine the actual cause, vehicle has to be hooked up to a diagnostic tools.

there is no dipstick or filling ports in the engine bay. underneath the car near the valve boby pan there are 2 bolts, one for draining the trans., and one for filling the trans. this is not the easiest of repairs and it is quite messy. drop cloths or some kind of catch would be wise. first drain the pan by removing the lower bolt. allow the fluid to completely drain and reinsert bolt. next remove the larger (valve body) pan. there is a filter that you will see is held in place by 3 bolts, remove filter and replace with new one. clean mating surfaces of all debris and fluids. next apply the gasket to the pan you just removed and cleaned. fill the empty pan with about 3-4 quarts of new ATF. a second pair of hands here is recommended. together realign pan to trans. careful not to spill fluid! apply a few bolts to allow for free hands. insert all bolts DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN BOLTS! this is very important, only tighten bolts until gasket just starts to squish. over tighten and you risk a new leak.
now the messy pain in the **** part. in oder to check fluid level, you need to have car parked on level ground. remove the upper bolt from the pan you just reapplied. You will need some sort of pump and a few feet of hose to complete the filling process. fill until fluid runs back out the hole, quickly insert bolt, tighten to specs. and wipe exterior of pan to see for any new leaks.
this should solve any trans. slips do to ATF seepage.
best of luck

The trans in your vehicle is a 4L30E.The check,and fill plugs are in the pan.The fluid has to be checked after the vehicle is fully warmed up,engine running,in Park.The hard to shift into 2nd gear is kind of difficult to say,check the level,maybe have it scanned for trouble codes esp. if check engine is lit.Those particular transmissions have one weak area,and thats the Low gear,or first gear band and drum.That causes a symptom of slip and chatter on takeoff from a complete stop.

I have found that one can mark (Paint pen) the gears and teeth (One tooth and one corresponding belt rib) on each gear prior to removing the belt. You can then overlay the old belt on a new belt and mark the same spots on the new belt and then install the belt so your marks on the gears and belt line up as they did before you removed the old belt. Given that your timing was right to start with....if done correctly, this will work.
