Question about 2001 Isuzu Rodeo

I have 115,00 miles on my Isuzu Rodeo. When I

I have 115,00 miles on my Isuzu Rodeo. When I purchased it, it had a little over 90,000 miles. It is a 2001 with a 3.2. l v6. Recently my transmission has been stuttering and slipping in first gear. I figured it out and had the fluid topped off at quick car yesterday. It hasn't slipped since I've done this. It still slams a littl when I put it into drive though and I haven't got it on the highway yet. My question is, is it safe to do a transmission service to get it flushed with the miles I have? I do not have a maintenance record, I don't know when the last one was done. Should I have it serviced or just make sure it's fluid is topped off?

It can never hurt to have the tranny flushed and good fluid put in there. If it had issues and was run low on fluid for too long I hope it did not do some damage. Absolutely get it flushed and see if that does the trick. Doesn't matter how many miles really. Dont just keep it topped off, the fluid that's in there now may have picked up some debris and needs to be changed. Hope it helps!

Good morning, I have a 2004 Isuzu Rodeo in which I have always gotten the proper worker done on time. I'm currently at 90,000 miles and my engine light is on. My truck jerks as if it doesn't want to go...

You have an apparent misfire that has to be troubleshooted correctly. At the mileage you have, you should have changed the plugs, wires (if it has them), cap and rotor (if it has them). Beyond that would take some technical diagnostics.

I have a 2000 rodeo with 90,000 miles on it,should i change the transmission oil,i found out it has never been changed,the trans seems to be slipping alittle i heard the horror stories about changing it....

I don't think it would hurt a thing to change fluid and filter. If your vehicle had, say, 250,000 miles, then I might hesitate (don't look a gift horse in the mouth).

Good luck!

1991 isuzu rodeo o2 dash light is stuck on

The O2 sensor needs to be replaced. There is a screw on the back side of the instrument panel that is removed and switched to another hole in the circuit board to reset the light for another 90,000 miles. Only a shop manual will have the exact location. You can try and obtain one from and buy one using print on demand.

Engine knocks 3.2 isuzu rodeo 2000 ? help

You don't say how many miles or give a service history, but, that said I would check the timing belt and tensioner. When tensioner goes bad is often is reported as a loud knock or tick. Usually most evident at low RPMs. Another low cost try is to use a can of seafoam in the oil now, run it a few miles, then change it for a high detergent, low viscousity oil and drive it a while to see if the lifters clean up. engine tick is very common, generally due to lifters oil passages getting sludged up a little for 2nd gen 3.2l's

Oil used in a 1992 Isuzu Rodeo

depends on your temperature, and where you live if it uses a little oil use a little heavier to cut consumption. If it is always cold where you live like below zero, I wouldn't use more than a 20w 30w. in warm climates a 30 weight oil is ok, but if you have low oil pressure you can safely use forty weight.

O2 sensor

There should be a reset switch that turns the light off. Some vehicles require a code scanner tool to reset the check engine light. On some Isuzu models you have to remove the instrument cluster and move a screw from one hole marked KSW to another hole with the same KSW marking (it may have tape over the second screw hole). Other Isuzu models may have a small switch on teh back of the instrument cluster or may have a different marking on the screw holes (some were marked wit the letter B on both holes). The O2 light usually comes on at 90,000 mile increments which is when Isuzu recommends changing it.
