1999 Isuzu Rodeo 2WD - transmission shifting hard

When coming out of park to drive, park to reverse, or reverse into drive, its shifting "hard" into the gear, almost like a thrust. There is also a "clack" noise associated with this problem, which sounds like it might be the drive shaft. Took it to a mechanic who diagnosed it simply as "its shot" and when I asked what was shot, he said the transmission and told me I could get it fixed for $2500. The mechanic couldn't tell me what inspection led him to this diagnosis...he said it was just his experience. Also, that $2500 cost was for a used transmission out of a junk yard.

Any recommendations are welcomed. I'm nervous to have it serviced for fear that it'll make it worse, not better. :)

hello Gary
so the easter egg hunts.
we get them endlessly here.
why not say what fails. ? first. then ask ?
so we can be on the same page.?

2: 4wd switch. ?
3: or the stick shift, reverse switch,

1999 isuzu rodeo=auto transmission


Those run through the floor. You will have to remove part of the shifter console to get to the cable. It has removeable fork clips that release the cable from the floor shifter. The tranny has those same clips that run to the transmission parking pawl(an arm off the side of the tranny that allows the tranny to be shifted). This is not easy to do and you will need patience.

Transmission shift hard in 2'nd to 3'rd gear on a automanic transmission on a 1999 Isuzu Rodeo


Hello
The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.
