Question about 1997 Isuzu Hombre

6 Answers

Manual transmission jumps out of 5th gear.

I have a 1997 Isuzu Hombre truck, with the NVG 3500 5 speed manual transmission. The transmission jumps out of 5th gear whenever I let off the gas. I can hold it in place, and all is fine, but if I'm not holding the shifter in place and let off the gas it jumps out of gear. Any ideas/suggestions? Thanks.

    Shifter is worn out and will have to be replaced. No other way out no simple fix 4 this problem. Gm has know about this problem since day one. If u buy GM just be ready to shell out money for repairs. I myself had to change the chain tensinor on my truck 3 times and exgust flange 4 along with 3 clutches. Theses trucks should have been recalled for the braking systems no telling how many wrecks hacve happened because of them. This truck is better off in the wrecking yard then on the streets. That is where my truck is now after breaking the tensinor for the third time. Oh by the way I was a GM mechanic for 25 years off and on so although they get great gas mileage they have to run to do it lol

Jumoing out of 5th gear is a problem that this company has known about for years. Also chain tensiors on the 2.2 coming loose both of these Items shaould have been recalls yet Gm and Isuzu just turned there backs and walked away. Their is also a problem with the anti lock brake systems on these trucks you are better off stopping like the flintstones if you have to come to a quick stop. Anti stop is the right name because u anti stopping u best try to hit the ditch lol. The exgust manifoild is a another story I dont know who the fool is that came up with the ideal of putting a spring flange gasget between the maifoild and the exgust pipe but this is a lot of not only noise but work to replace every year if it makes it that long without blowing it out. The chain tensinor will cost a good bit to replace u see when it comes loose it breaks the timing chain which in turns bends valves and then there is the cost of the head having to be redone lol. The bottom half og the motor is great pulling power is great clutch well you will have tyo change it after 65000 miles that along with the slave cycinder lol gas 350 to a tank 390 on the highway which is great for a 18.l5 gallon tank . %th yes it isnt just something a 20.00 is going to fix lol and it wasnt your fault Gm and the other maker did shity work now all these Hombras owners are paying for there mistakes. It will be fine it will last a life time just keep on holding it w3hen u slow down hell im doing it in aqll my trucks now it kind of becomes a habit after a while but better then giving gm anymore of my money 1, exgust flange gasket 2. timnig chain tensioner 3 tranmission 5th gear slipping out. 4 Braking hazard to your health 5th well i will take the 5th i think I have said enough.

Check your synchros, that is most likely the problem. if it is, a new transmission is probably your best and cheapest bet

You most likely have a worn shift for thata not pushing it all the way into gear. commonly caused by resting your hand on the shifter while driving

It's very possible that your speed sensor is the root cause of all or most of your stated problems. The speed sensor is involved in many of the operations of the electronic engine control system. It would be worth the effort to replace the speed sensor with a new one, reset your EEC computer, and see what improves!
