Question about 2002 Isuzu Rodeo

1 Answer

2002 Rodeo Sport Transmission ??

When I start to drive it feels like I ran over a hard bump. Is that what 'slipping' feels like? I happens at various times while driving. I think it maybe is the transmission but I don't know. At first I thought it was my auto starter because when I shut the truck off and restarted it, it drove as if nothing happened. I was going to go to the dealer but it didn't happen any more (so they would think I was crazy). The same thing happened a second time after a few days of driving it. So I shut it off and after I restarted it it was fine again. The repair shop for the starter could find nothing wrong with it. Then it didn't happen for 10 days of driving it. Leaving work today it started again and continued to do it. It seems it is in the rear of the truck. It will do it while I'm driving also besides slowing down or accelerating. No lights come on and there's no fluids on the ground under it. What do you think?

    when i pull off it feels like i am going over railroad tracks? do i need a new tranny or just a fluid change?

    My 2002 rodeo sport is now doing the same thing...It sounds like you are going over railroad tracks when you begin to accelerate.. My mechanic says there are four to five sensors on the transmission and without any check engine light coming on it is difficult to know which one needs to be replaced.... Any ideas???
    If it's not replaced does it do any damage to the transmission??? Thank You

Can my transmisson on my 2002 isuzu rodeo be low on fluid.It does go into gear but .But it does not go very far.Like the transmisson is slipping

I suggest bring the vehicle to a repair shop to :
a) check for leaks and ATF condition ( burnt smell ,shavings, and coolant in ATF) Any one of these conditions may indicate a rebuild.
b) if no leaks are found and ATF is in decent condition fill tranny to proper level and check for slipping.
c) if slipping doesn't happen after level is brought up to specs, DO a transmission oil filter and ATF change.(and be thankful you gotta away cheap.
d) if slipping still happens after level has been topped off
they(repair shop) will either "Stall Test it or pressure check the transmission " Good luck

Noise when Driving

if your car is not making noise during at idle well you might check the power steering fluid level it might be causing it to make a noise you said that its only making noise when driving right you might check your drive belt for wear it might be slip and about with your ABS it should throw a code on your dash board and also you mention if brake or strut could be causing it well its easy to identify brakes are making noise happen when you brake and strut will make a noise when you hit a bump ,hard corner well to diagnose it jounce the car ride on it on the front bumper also the rear.then when it comes to your transmission you said you can feel the noise all the time even at idle so dont worry for this time.

Want to get it right the first time..

try checking the fluid level in the gearbox,rodeo dont have a dipstick so u have to undo the plug on the side of the gearbox just like a manual gearbox.if the oil is really low i suggest doing a full service on the gearbox,change the oil and filter is ideal for better results.
