Question about 2001 Isuzu Rodeo

Eratic transmission shifting vibrates and slips when turning

I have a 2001 rodeo and when I first put it into Drive it sits in neutral for maybe 3-5 seconds before it kicks in.

Then, If I accelerate at more than a snails pace it shutters and vibrates then slames into first.

Once I get going i can punch it and it does fines through all the gears also downshifts nicley.

another strange occurance is the propencity it has to slip into neutral when turning...

Any genious out there able to help because I'm stumped.

Selco, if you find it let me know. It's a kit and that's what's wrong with my 2001 Isuzu Rodeo transmission fluid leaks out of it when I drove it. You won't see leak when it's sitting, only when driven.

I have a 2002 Rodeo and mine was doing something similar. Mine is an automatic and it sounds like your's is a stick so I'm not sure it is the same problem. All that was wrong with mine was a part that Isuzu recalled was messed up on my transmission. Call your dealer to see what they can do.

It's low on transmission fluid! It has to be checked and pumped in from the bottom of pan. Check for leaks too.

Why does my 1995 Volvo transmission stop going into gear after it's hot?


1) How's your fluid level?

2) When did you last replace your filter?

3) When it shifted, did it go trough all the gears as you accelerate or did it just stay on one gear and never shifted?

4) How's reverse, does it slip out too after 2 - 3 min?

5) As you first able to shift into gear, you can drive it for 2 to 3 mintues and it just suddenly slip out of gear?


.... could be a number of different things. Maybe even burnt out clutche(s) inside your transmission

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.

The car vibrates when in drive while at a stop. What would cause this ?


Vibration at idle brings to mind a few suspects:

transmission mount(s) broken/missing
transmission internally worn
motor mount(s) broken/missing

(1) transmission internally worn or transmission mount broken/missing - test this by shifting into neutral at the next stop light. If the vibration disappears when you disengage the transmission, then the transmission is the source of the vibration. You'll have to inspect the transmission mounts - if they're ok, then the transmission is internally worn and can no longer smoothly "slip" while idling in drive.
(2) motor mount broken/missing - also test this by shifting into neutral at the next stop light. If the vibration persists, then the transmission is exonerated, and the vibration is coming from (under) the engine. The rubber part of motor mounts commonly crack/break and or pop out and are lost.

Wont start starter just makes a click when you turn key also the rodeo shifter moves without putting on brake


possibly shift interlock system needs adjustment or replaced .this is a connection between transmission and ignition key lock cylinder . which is why youre able to shift w/o applying brakes and wont start. try to start n neutral.

NEUTRAL is complete.
7. Shift the transmission to REVERSE (R) for one

for one second or FIRST (1) for vehicles with
manual transmission.
8. Turn the ignition to OFF.
9. Place the transmission shift lever in PARK (P) or
FIRST (1) for vehicles with manual transmission.
10. Release the parking brake prior to towing.

************************

2. Start the vehicle with the transmission in PARK (P)
or FIRST (1) for vehicles with manual transmission.
3. Press the button for the desired transfer case position
(2HI, 4HI, AUTO 4WD or 4LO).
4. Put the transmission in NEUTRAL (N) or press the
clutch pedal for vehicles with manual transmission.
5. Shift the transmission lever to the desired position.
After the transfer case has shifted out of NEUTRAL,
the red light will go out.
6. A re-engagement sound is normal when shifting out
of NEUTRAL.
