Question about 1998 Isuzu Hombre
My hombre was bought recently (used 106k miles on dash) 2.2L manual hombre, and i realized too late that it is very hard to put it in 2nd gear from 1st, but if you change it after a second from 1st it is ok. but of course the speed is too slow for 2nd gear. It has a grinding sound that feels like i am forcing it to 2nd gear. the more if i down shift it from 3rd. there is a gounding sound from 2 metals (feels like the gears) rubbing when i force it in 2nd gear from 3rd. The pick up is kinda clutchy though but only 2nd gear is hard to put in, i really hope it is only a minor clutch probom not the transmission. what do you think is wrong with it?
STOP Forcing gear change, watch the Engine RPMs and shift accordingly, HOMBRE's are as good as the operator's. Hombre's have dash shift indicators which illuminate when it's time to 'shift' and not before, This has nothing to do with gear oil either. If you've drained it, you best fill it immediately and make sure it's ample level. The heat these gears sustain in is inceredible, cooling lubricant is essential. Here's a tip, while engine is OFF, ignition key is engaged, dash is illuminated, depress clutch peddle, keep it depressed and walk through all gears with gear shift, shifting should be smooth and unpeded, including reverse. If resistance is experienced at one or more gears, gear alignment is off as a result of inproper gear shifting while driving. Continue to drive vehicle just shift slower until clutch needs replacement then do an entire drive shaft upgrade. It worth it, it's great truck.
