Question about 2001 Isuzu Rodeo
I just replaced the transmission on my 97 astro van with a rebuilt one. It went in with no problems, i drove it around approx. 200 -250 miles.It started slipping bad so i drained the fluid and it was really dark and smelled burnt/ there was a lot of shavings in the pan . i changed the filter and fluid and it works again but now when i slow down and it shifts back into 1st it feels and sounds like the brakes are on and it sounds like its grinding any ideas what to look at or is it just a bad rebuilt transmission?
The bands are too tight.. they need adjusted if they arent fried already..

Being as it's over 200,000 miles, I'd definitely check into these things before assuming it's a transmission. As it very well could be a transmission problem such as, bad torque converter or a problem in the gears. It also could be as simple as a poorly balanced tire, or a wheel bearing going out. Check these before assuming it's a transmission as it could turn what you might think of over $1000 problem into a $30 fix.
As you Said, Air filter, or fuel filter.
New tank of name brand fuel... BP, Shell, Citgo, etc...
Even check the brakes, a bad rotor or dragging pad may cause a vibration.
Now in the case that it's something else, here's a couple ways to check the transmission yourself to see if it's causing a problem.
1 : Find a steep hill and stop on it. Accelerate throughout first gear, see if it vibrates there at all. Make sure to put it into first gear so it won't shift out. If there's no vibration, try it in second, third, so forth.
2 : Many actual transmission problems are more notable in reverse as the gearing is actually turned backwards and made more evident. So try it in reverse, see if anything abnormal is experienced.
3 : Find a parking lot and make sure you have some space. Turn the wheel all the way to one side, left or right. Lay into the throttle and listen carefully. A clicking sound will denote a bad pivot joint in an axle or a bad wheel bearing. Try this in both directions as well. As a lot of times only one side will make noise and only if you're turning in that direction.
4 : Another good way to check for transmission problems is by engine braking. Use first or second gear to keep the vehicle slow while traveling downhill. Not at high speed, but enough where you can feel the vehicle being held back. Any slipping or vibration can denote a problem with the transmission.
Try these steps and see if you can narrow the problem down. Once you get it narrowed down; it's time to search for the right remedy whether it be a $20 air filter or a $700 transmission rebuild. I hope this helps you out bud!

SOURCE: 2nd gear clutching
STOP Forcing gear change, watch the Engine RPMs and shift accordingly, HOMBRE's are as good as the operator's. Hombre's have dash shift indicators which illuminate when it's time to 'shift' and not before, This has nothing to do with gear oil either. If you've drained it, you best fill it immediately and make sure it's ample level. The heat these gears sustain in is inceredible, cooling lubricant is essential. Here's a tip, while engine is OFF, ignition key is engaged, dash is illuminated, depress clutch peddle, keep it depressed and walk through all gears with gear shift, shifting should be smooth and unpeded, including reverse. If resistance is experienced at one or more gears, gear alignment is off as a result of inproper gear shifting while driving. Continue to drive vehicle just shift slower until clutch needs replacement then do an entire drive shaft upgrade. It worth it, it's great truck.

Have you checked the trani fluid ?
It could be slipping just enough to notice in 1st gear beause that is the most resistance..
A slip is a slip..
Or it could be that the bands are warn in only first gear - wich would cause damage before long..
Some shops give free estimates..

Yes, they can. But you must get some result more effective from Scanner and Computer test from some Repair Shop.
God bless you
