Hello Joe.
please say what works and does not.?
and on what road surface you are on, pavement, dirt, ice? what?
and what does winter mode mean. tell actual shift modes.
and what transmission options you have.

no do not rebuild anything, first is diagnosis.
never guess. or go broke fast,

  • 130-hp, 2.2-liter I-4 (regular gas)
  • 205-hp, 3.2-liter V-6 (regular gas)
  • Transmissions:
  • 5-speed manual w/OD
  • 4-speed automatic w/OD
4x2
4x4
limited slip diff option?
Mode select transmission? option 4x4
this is part time 4wd and is not AWD , all wheel drive.
as such it is not for dry (ice-less) pavement and is for offroad.

so what surface are you driving on. 1st.
then in what mode.
are you messing up and using 4x4 on dry pavement
see here for what happens doing it wrong.
http://www.rubicon-trail.com/4WD101/driveline-bind.html

if you wind it up. the gear shift can lock up.
the solution is 2 ways.
drive to dirt shoulder and move slow and shift back to 2WD.
or if can't do that. (no grass , ice, no dirt)
jack up a front tire. and do same.
this unwinds the system.
then shift to 2wd.
some rare cars have partime system with a hidding slip clutch that
prevents wind up. this car dont.
nor does car have an AWD center differential.
good luck.

This has to do with the Auto's Computer system and should ONLY be done by a Factory Rep who knows what he/she are doing. not a home mechanic chore!!

SOURCE: how to change oil transmission isuzu rodeo 2003

There are two drain plugs on the bottom of the pan. remove the lower one to drain the trans fluid. To refill, use a pump and pump the fluid into the upper drain plug until it seeps out and re-install the plug, similar to refilling a manual trans.
Once this is done, Start the vehicle and run it for about 3 minutes, shifting through all gears (do not drive vehicle Remove the upper drain plug and let any excess fluid drain out. Done. This is as per Mitchell OnDemand.

SOURCE: Transmission fluids

If you have the 4 speed 4L30-E..........9.2 quarts (automatic)

And, if you have a manual:

Manual Transmission, W/ BW 5-SPD..........4.4 pints
Manual Transmission, W/O BW 5-SPD..........6.3 pints

Type of fluid is dextron or mercon III, you have to pump it in from the bottom.

Please don't forget to rate!!!!

SOURCE: how do i put transmission fluid in my 2000 isuzu

The transmission fluid fill port is actually on the tranny. You have to get under the car, find the tranny and feel around the top for a bolt or a hole. There is a bolt on the bottom to empty the fluid, and to fill it is a pain in the ***. I had to rig up an empty quart of oil with two small rubber hoses. One hose you put it the hole at the top, and the other you blow in. There is no room for you to pour it in. You can also buy small hand pumps to feed in the fluid. After filling, (when fluid overflows from the top port) start the car and put it in drive then reverse and repeat two or three times. You'll find you have to put more fluid in after this.

lots of Rodeo parts on car. and this.
The vehicle also features the Torque on Demand (TOD) 4-wheel-drive system produced by BorgWarner.

seem like you need to find a TOD and 4speed expert.
why not scan the PCM to see all those transmission errors.????
check fuses first.
yah, yah , nobody scans here. just guess.

My transmission works in winter drive but not on its own


Have you had the transmission control module scanned for fault codes? This transmission is electronically controlled. If no codes show up in memory then you may have a mechanical problem, Also winter selection starts in 2nd gear, so you may be missing that gear.

2000 isuzu rodeo car will not run in drive will run in reverse


***For Automatic Transmissions ONLY*** See if the Check Transmission/Check Engine light is on. If so, the likely cause is a sensor failure. If not on, the likely cause is the failure is an internal clutch problem. Only resolution is to overhaul the transmission.

I need to know what the power drive and winter drive buttons are for on a 1998 isuzu rodeo


The winter drive button gears the transmission down so that it doesn’t spin when you take off from a dead stop in the snow and ice. It only activates by pressing and holding it when at a stop and then accelerating.

Power is for when you are hauling heavy loads. It holds a higher rpm before shifting to next gear giving you best hauling performance.

When I start driving, the engine revs high and barely goes anywhere. it goes slowly up till 25mph and then is fine. It just started today


I believe '02 rodeo's have buttons for power mode and winter mode located between the shifter and the flip up console.You may have accidentally activated winter mode which cuts power to the drive wheels for driving in ice and snow.If so look on the instrument cluster and "winter mode" will be lit in green,simply push the button again to deactivate it while in PARK.Hope this helps ,good luck.
