Question about 1999 Isuzu Rodeo

2 Answers

Transmission slipped I was driving up a gradual hill and my transmission completely slipped. I don't know anything about transmissions but what I can tell you is that my RPM's drove way up as my cars speed decreased. I drove very gingerly about 2 miles till I pulled into my driveway. I can go about 20 mph at about 2500 RPM's but nothing more. Any advice is VERY appreciated.

    There are no oil leak marks whatsoever. I have not checked the oil level but I will be doing so first thing tomorrow. Is it possible that a low oil level would cause this problem and also that replenishing a low Transmission fluid level would fix it?


    I most definitely appreciate your time and your efforts to help me.


    Regards.

    Thank you so much for your time and efforts in helping me.

    There are ZERO oil leaking marks where the vehicle is parked on a daily basis. I will be able to check the transmission fluid level first thing in the morning...

    A few questions:

    Is it possible that low Transmission oil / fluid would cause this problem solely?

    Also, could replenishing a low Transmission oil / fluid level potentially fix a problem of this nature?

    What are the chances this could be more complex that a fluid level?

Check the Transmission Oil level and look for oil drip traces where the vehicle normally parks.

Not sure if that specific vehicle has a transmission dipstick or requires under-vehicle access to the pan. Unfortunately, some vehicles are designed that way.

I recommend calling your local dealer and discuss with the service manager. The dealer can read the problem codes and potentially save you a ton of money by addressing the correct issue.

It could be as simple as needing a filter/oil change.

It is also possible that the ECU/PCM needs a program download to restore the shift points. My wife's Santa Fe required a program download this past Friday in order to restore functionality after transmission would slip and/or not shift automatically.

I hope this helps.

No such thing as an easy or inexpensive fix when it comes to a transmission. Since the unit needs to come out and apart in order to do any internal repair, it's rather foolish to do anything except a complete rebuild. Don't forget...Unlike an engine that has many components on the outside, your transmission has virtually everything inside. Have a reputable trans shop do the work. They will check the transmission and the transfer case and make the necessary repair recommendations.

Darlene Transmission jobs will cost around $1500.00 if you find an honest mechanic. Go back to the parts store and buy some Tranx. put this in your transmission. If it is a little over full it will be ok. your transmission sounds as if the orings are letting fluid bypass. This stuff will help. I used it in my truck 2 &1/2 years ago and haven't had a problem since. My transmission would drop out of gear completely. It took about three days for the problem to go away. $10.00 compared to a $300.00 solenoid package. Good luck
