Rear shift differential repair for 1994 Isuzu

My 1994 Isuzu Rodeo smelled like rubber burning after driving it. I took it to AAMCO Transmissions and they said I need to repair the rear shift differential. Evidently, the oil leaked out, but the car was driven for about 2 months (at least the smell was there for 2 months). Do you know a fair estimate for repairing the car in Boulder, Colorado? What is the bare minimum I need to do on repairs? Are there step by step instructions on how to repair the rear shift differential?

It is called a rear end. Your best bet is to find a good used one at a salvage lot. You should have good luck as all of the isuzu's were clunkers. Aamco will rape you!

94 isuzu rodeo wont shift outta 2nd gear


auto trans no less.. it shifts no you.
so what trans is there?
so reverse works, 1 gear, then 2nd , but not 3rd.
some have a TCM that does the auto shifts.
and must be scanned to see why it wont shift.
levels ok, that be like first first. done not like engine, ever.
do it correctly.
The TCM may have flash codes, the FSM factory serv. man. covers this, as does mitchells.but it will ask you
what engine you have, and which trans is car 4wd?
first know your drive train then ask.

94 isuzu rodeo w0nt shift outta 2nd gear why


why double post and not add info????

like engine size ?
4wd?
and trans model.?
best i can tell your trans has no TCM.
so is true hyrdamatic. (no computer brain shifts)
so needs many tests first. to find why it will not upshift to 3rd.
governer? be on top of list.
as is stuck TV cable
or leaking vacuum modulator valve. if it has one.
if you have this trans. on the big V6
then
4L30-E.

see that E on the end, it is TCM shifted.
the trans has a side plate that anyone can read, tells you what is there.
here is the wiki on it.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GM_4L30-E_transmission


read that?



see the 2 solenoids 425/435?
if yes, that is TCM shifted box, and must be scanned or do the FSM book, TCM flash codes, the book tell you who to do that.

http://www.makcotransmissionparts.com/mm5/graphics/Catalog-pdf/4L30E.pdf

this is a TCM brain auto shifted box, and must be scanned first
if the trans slips, that is a WHOLE OTHER MATTER.

My 2000 isuzu rodeo only drives on winter mode should i rebuild the transmission


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.

How to check the auto Trans


You can't check it....there is a overfill screw were you fill transmission through...its under the vihicle..transmissions don't burn or leak oil so no need to check them ..unless it is slipping or shifting bad.....should have trans oil changed about every 20,000 miles..

Can you let me know what is the gear ratio for a 1995 isuzu rodeo. My rear differential is broken


Should be a metal tab bolted to rear inspection cover of differential displaying gear ratio or count the number of teeth on pinion (small gear connected to drive shaft) Divide number into the number of teeth on ring gear

Auto Transmission 2000 Rodeo


It seems that the trans is slipping. The smell is from excess trans flood. If Trans is over filled, it can rupture seals and cause leaking that can get on the exhaust and burn.
