Question about 2000 Isuzu Rodeo

1 Answer

My Isuzu Rodeo won't shift into any gear besides park or neutral.

Car turns on just fine. When I shift into drive, reverse or a lower gear position and step on the gas pedal the engine revs but I don't move. It's as if I was pressing the break at the same time. My break lights still work. When I put it into neutral I can still push my car and when I put it into park it still stops.

If the car is a auto matic start the car in park with the parking break on. under the hood you will see to dip sticks. one should be black "oil" the other yellow Transmission stick. with the car running pull the dip stick out wip off any oil on the stick. reinstall all the way pull it out again, you should have either 2 dots aproxmaintley 1" spread the top dot is where the trans mission fluied needs to be. if it is barley on the stick go to your local parts store ask what type of transmission it uses and buy a couple of quarts probley about 12.00 also get a tran. funnel to add the fluied. put a little at a time and check the stick untial it is on the top mark about2.5" from bottom of the stick. also if the fluied is not a redish color, have it changed. good luck

Check your idle air control valve. If not that try your throttle position sensor or your throttle cable may need adjusting.

It's a 2000 Isuzu rodeo that will want shift in higher gears acts like it's in N shifts in to drive and reverse fine but want shift in higher gears


we cant guess your drive line, not now or ever.
so why ask. us?
my guess you mean the car drives in 1st gear but will not upshift,
and flares, in a false neutral.
wont and want is speed wrong 2 times, why?
Is car with TOD? torque on demand option, we cant see the dash board, we be like blind.
check fluild levels yet,
get the box serviced last decade, (a full flush and filter,) sure no.
check fuses, maybe car has TCM that cant up shift due to fuse blown.
and last did you scan it, if not why not
that be 3rd step after levels, fuses, then scan.
if the TCM cant see sensors, it cant upshift,
TCM is the tranny brain.

My rodeo wont come out of park when the ignition is on but as soon as you turn the ignition off you can shift from park to any gear


Cars have a locking solenoid that prevents the vehicle from being shifted out of Park when the engine is running if the brake pedal is not pressed. This is to prevent accidental shifting into gear by children left in running cars, or people leaning over the shifter to get to the glove box, etc. Sounds like the solenoid is not being deactivated when the brake pedal is pressed. There is usually a manual release button in case this feature fails, but the button may be inconvenient to access. You could try putting the car in Neutral before trying to start it, since most cars will start in either the Park or Neutral position. This will allow you to use the vehicle until you can diagnose and make repairs.

1995 Isuzu Rodeo will not shift in to drive


car 2wd/ or 4wd.
will not shift into any gear. reverse too, wont move?
well as with a/t boxes this.

1: check fuses first. if the 4l30 it need power to the tcm.
but will still car moves if the lever moves. even fuse blown.
2: the levels right ,per operators guide, do not use engine oil level style checks or make it WORSE.
3: a new filter, kind makes sense in all cases.
4: you shifted to DRive, but did the box shift to drive, under car.
look, there, have help shift and you look
this is called the MANUAL valve lever, if it fails to shift right
it will not work. super simple cave man stuff here, a cable.
must shift out of park and out of neutral or car will never move.
5: lots more, but that is par for course on all a/t boxes .
6: line pressure test pass? (fsm book shows this simple test)
if that fails the box is bad. (low pressure)

How do you adjust transmission linkage on 2000 isuzu rodeo?


manual or auto
bet automatic.

alldata.com has this.

but really you don't need to read that.
cable off trans.end.
set the transmission to say, drive. position at the t actual trans manual shift lever on side of trans. (the PRNDL switch may be here)
count the detent clicks., (easy huh?) to drive PRND bingo there.
then attach the cable and get it to the Drive marker in the cab console.
the lock it all down.
the test all gears. park and neutral , in drive way, not on road yet.
if all ok, hit the road.

98 Isuzu rodeo and drive train issues


Did you try starting in neutral. Maybe you confused the ECU and caused the starter inhibitor switch to malfunction. Try disconecting the neutral on the battery and wait for a few minutes and see if she resets..

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.

Put a new engine in a 1998 isuzu rodeo now it won't start. I thought it was the neutral safety switch because the R was on the dash and it was in park


This could be the problem. If your dash indicator is showing reverse but the transmission is in park it could be the safety switch. I'm not talking about the safety switch in the transmission though. In automatics they put a second switch to kill the starter from engaging. You need to adjust the linkage. If your shifter isn't actually on the column but the indicators are there is a cable that attaches the floor shift to the column and that is adjustable. Put the Floor shifter in Park and turn the column section nearest the dash by hand until you find park. Then adjust the cable length as needed. If all you have is the column shift it is still a cable adjustment. Set the emergency brake, drop the shifter to low 1 and adjust the cable linkage by loosening it on the transmission and manually move it all the way to low 1 then tighten it down then move the shifter to park and repeat teh adjustment process to verify that it is properly aligned. Lock the linkage back down and see if the vehicle will start, if it doesn't move the shifter to neutral and try to start the vehicle if the vehicle starts then check the column shift safety switch at the park position to make sure it is still in place and working. Typically, if the vehicle won't start in Park or Neutral it is more likely to be the Transmission neutral safety switch.
