Auto Transmission 2000 Rodeo

We were having hard shifting trouble with our rodeo so we took it to the garage. The mechanic put Dex III trans oil to top it off. The shifting problem was solved almost instantly. The next day, the transmission started acting funny, it would go up to 40 km/h then it seems like it wouldn't shift gears, it would rev up to 3000 rpm but not go forward. Now, 3 days later, there is an awful transmission smell and the car doesn't move, it only revs and lunges.

It seems that the trans is slipping. The smell is from excess trans flood. If Trans is over filled, it can rupture seals and cause leaking that can get on the exhaust and burn.

What is the code p1870 on my 2000 isuzu rodeo and approximately how much for repairs


code p 1870 refers to AT---component slipping===causes mechanical fault
this could be a band or clutch problem and could possibly be a matter of adjustment , fluid change or filter clean
I would take it to an accredited auto transmission specialist( only-no local mechanic ), have them do a proper diagnosis and quote and ask will a fluid change and adjustment when the pan is off fix the problem
if could be a band piston seal failure or low oil pressure from a failing pressure regulator
cannot suggest repair costs until you know exactly is wrong and that will be determined when the pan is off and the internals can be inspected

ill guess, A/t for ATF fluid.
what to use, if car is still running, stock fluid, some are not.
ill read you the official service bull. TSB

4L30E/4L60E Transmission Fluid 2003 publ.

The correct fluid to use in all Isuzu vehicles equipped with the 4L30E or 4L60E automatic
transmissions is DEXRON®-III with a G-License Number (G-34318), Isuzu part number: 2-
90531-815-0 or equivalent (see figure 1).
When checking for correct fluid level, follow the procedures in the appropriate Workshop
Manual.
NOTE: Incorrect fluid or incorrect fluid level may cause shift complaints and/or transmission
damage.

that means use DEXRON VI now. DEX 6. what is seen on the shell NOW, 2016.
dex 3 is obsolete.


holds 18 pints, dry, fill
way less, simply drain in place. 6 pints falls out
if levels is ok now.
what you do measure what came out, drained and put back that exact amount.

I changed the oil on my 2000 isuzu rodeo and now when I start the can and i shift the car dose not move. It starts fine but wont revers or drive when I put it in gear.


you have apparently drain the transmission fluid out of the trans pan. check your oil level to see if it is overfilled, this would be a good indication especially if you didn't have to refill the oil with at least 5 quarts.

1994 automatic transmission slipping


more than likely it would be your torque converter and not your trans
but you could have the overall dreaded problem that your second gear has grinded its self down and thats why you cant get second gear
no vacumes for the 94 straight mechanical and electrical if there was a vacume you would have found it when you dropped the pan it isnt hard to see around the whole trans cause it would be located next to the speedo with a rubber hose 1/4 thick

How to check transmission fluid on 2001 isuzu rodeo


There is no dipstick on your auto trans. Checking it is a real PITA The trans pan has 2 plugs in it. The one on the very bottom is the drain. The one in the corner, up higher in a recess is the check/fill plug. To check, the engine must be warm and running, tranny in P. Remove the plug and fluid should dribble out. If it doesn't it's low, fill until it dribbles out, while engine is running. Obviously the truck must be on a lift or up on jackstands.

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!

How to change oil transmission isuzu rodeo 2003


There are two drain plugs on the bottom of the pan. remove the lower one to drain the trans fluid. To refill, use a pump and pump the fluid into the upper drain plug until it seeps out and re-install the plug, similar to refilling a manual trans.
Once this is done, Start the vehicle and run it for about 3 minutes, shifting through all gears (do not drive vehicle Remove the upper drain plug and let any excess fluid drain out. Done. This is as per Mitchell OnDemand.
