Whats the fluid smell like? when was the last time it was serviced? where is fluid on stick when hot? low on fluid could do what you discribed, but chances are trans needs rebuilt. if fluid smells burnt, rebuild or replacement.

My tachometer quit working in my 2001 rodeo,ive checked all the connections ad it stills not working how can i fix the problem

no engine stated. ouch....
all else work? car drives, no mifire????
no low MPG?
no CEL lamp glowing driving,?????? check engine light,.??
if the cluster TACH (stock ) is dead.
then its bad, or the wires from it to the PCm. are bad.
of other cluster gauges or lamps are dead, the fuse blew to the cluster.
that is all i can do working blind, id have to see all to tell all.

ill get your custer drawings and look for you, you can too at Mitchells DIY'
there is 2001 rodeo and rodeo sports. ill guess non sport.

ok the PCM if you scan it and RPM reads ok then all that is ok
the PCM on this car sends RPM data , on 1 wire to the techo,
if it arrives there, (wires) then the tacho works if and only if it has power, if the coolant gage works that means tacho has power too. as they sit on the same power rail in the head.

I have a 2001 Souza rodeo goes backwards but will not go towards I got a 2001 Isuzu Trooper goes backwards but no forwards

automatic trans or stick, we cant guess that ever.....
drive, and Low dead. (hot and cold engine????)
so does it slip.?
slip means, you step on the gas and RPM races but car dont move. SLIPs. that is transmission
but of it dont slip that means the engine is weak..
if its slip?, check levels first.
if levels in box are ok (dont guess read how to )
then check shift linkage.
if that is ok, scan the PCM for tranny errors DTC.
if that is ok, do the FSM stated, line pressure tests..

Reduce power and check engine lights on

reduced power usally points toward a gas pedal to throttle correlation meaning the drive by wire system is where the problem is

1996 Rodeo Isuzu - I put it in Winter Drive and now 1 rear wheel

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.

Occasional High Idle on a 2001 isuzu rodeo sport

It may be a Throttle Positioning Sensor, or TPS for short. Is the engine light on, and if so you can get it scanned at any local advance auto or autozone for free to tell you what it is. If it's not the TPS, checking simple preventitive maintnence areas, like tune up, if it hasn't been done in a while, it's a good thing to do.
Hope this helps
