2001 Isuzu Rodeo Sport will not go forward in drive
Will not go forward in drive but will go backwards in reverse. Neither the check engine light nor the transmission light come on and when I run a scan, there are no codes. Anyone have and idea? Thanks.

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.

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..
Did you by chance have it Back flushed in a service center if there is lots of mileage on this 150K plus more than likely the transmission is done for NEVER back flush a transmission i dont care what people say.
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.
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
