Question about 1992 Isuzu Rodeo

1 Answer

My Isuzu starts up however when I try to put it in

My Isuzu starts up strong however when I try to put it in gear (first or second since parked on slight declined street), it just drifts forward and does not engage. Last week I could barely make it up a steep hill taking daughter to school and smelled a light burning odor. Is this the transmission or the clutch gone bad? Friend says that it can't be trans because I should still have some reverse abilities, which I do not. I tried to put it in reverse however almost hit neighbors car park ahead of me due to no grip in that gear either. Isuzu is 1992 5spd 4x4 Rodeo which has over 160k miles and was used in delivering newspapers (about 400lbs daily) in a city environment.

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.

Gear lever stuck in park (P)


Question are you putting in the correct size fuse ? Look in the owners Manuel it will tell you what amp fuse goes where. May be as simple as that always make sure you put the same amp fuse back in very important.

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..

98 Isuzu rodeo turned car off while in drive gear now won't restart


shutting off while in drive should not hurt anything-do you have dash lights when you turn the key on-will the engine turn over when you turn the key to start position-is it firing at all-let me know and I will try to help you-Denny

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.

Rolls backwards when in park


Then your gear is giving out. You need to put your emergency brake on to when you put in park. Get your gear checked out. Hope this helps!?
