I have a 1992 Isuzu Rodeo, automatic trans. It is slow to take off after I stop. It runs fine and no other problems. I just brought it from someone and they told me that they thought it needs a new transmission however, I don't believe so. It runs through the gears without hesitation. Any help will be appreciated.

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.
Go buy the repair manual for vehicle (about 20 bucks) AND a code reader.(between 50 and 300 bucks. Both specific to your vehicle AND vehicle year. Million reasons for check engine light - but that light is basically saying, "I'm seeing something wrong, so check my vehicle computer for what I'm seeing" and the fact that it goes away or may go away just says the problem may be intermittent or keeps being cleared for some reason, either the problem fixes itself or the computer clears code for some reason, probably the former.
