Question about 1995 Isuzu Rodeo

95 isuzu rode0-starts in high gear

My rodeo is automatic, and when you put it in drive, it will either start in 4th or 3rd gear, when you put it in 3rd, it will start and stay in third, put it in second starts and stays in second and in low it will start and stay in 1st. thus we have to shift it like a manual, which is dangerous and cause more harm to transmission. car as 250,000 miles on it, and has been abused. what could be the problem? transmission cooler lines clogged? some tranny sensor gone bad?

    Same problem. 1995 Isuzu Rodeo. Have to manually shift automatic transmission to shift gears.

    Same as above, the car starts in high gear and will not shift automatically. I bought the rodeo with a battery that is too small, only 12-13 volts, and am going to replace it to see if i can get more power to correct the problem. I will let you all know if it works.

    When i start the car, it cranks. When I press the gas to go i must put it in low, 2,3,then drive, like a manual. I have changed the transmission filltor and have cleaned it up a little, But it still does the same thing, like driveing a manual.

Gather all you can on your transmission model and specifically how many and where the shift solenoids area located. If external, you can take them off, rig a little 12 volt DC power supply to activate each one while you spray it out with carb cleaner. Reinstall them and give it a try. Some have little screens that get clogged. Clean those too. Consider a professional flush and refill with synthetic fluid. If a four speed automatic, two solenoids can produce all for forward gears. For example both closed = 1st, solenoid A open and solenoid B closed=2nd, A closed and B open = 3rd, both open = 4th. Best of luck to you.

Its 2 wheel drive, but the transmission won't shift unless you manuallyl put the gear shifter in low then work your way up to get the gears to change. The gears work fine it just won't change on its on. If...


Trans shifts into gear harshly, car feels sluggish off the line, No 1st, 4th or TCC lockup available, Manual 2nd, 3rd and Reverse are only available gears, CEL is on: Transmission is either in limp-home mode or has lost electrical power. If there are lots of error codes in the PCM, check the under-hood fuse that powers the transmission, and if it pops again, look for a short in that circuit like an O2 sensor harness touching exhaust. Otherwise, check PCM codes for a particular fault in the transmission causing the PCM to put it in limp-home mode.

No 1st or 4th available; trans shifts 2nd to 3rd by itself in D or OD and locks the converter : ShiftA solenoid failed. Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

Car goes into gear but feels very sluggish like the brakes are dragging, but it will roll easily (starts out in 4th gear), you manually shift to 2 to get it moving, once it's moving you put it back in OD and the car shifts 3rd to 4th on its own and locks the converter at the appropriate time: ShiftB solenoid failed: Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

Good luck and keep me posted, there are other things but these things mentioned seam like what you described.

I am assuming it is an manual trans. The transmission has wore the brass syncro. The only fix is full dismantling and replacing the wore parts.
