I can explain the sluggishness you get after the fault occurs and the light appears. The rodeo will go into what's called 'limp home mode' when it detects a fault. It is a safety feature that locks the car in second (or third) gear so u can get home or to the mechanic...slowly. If you turn the car off and re-start it will re-set. I recently was having transmission problems with my 2002 v6. It would occasionally clunk badly when pulling up to a slow stop. Intermittent problem that I couldn't reproduce with the mechanic (of course). They changed the transmission oil which was low and old, not a cheap job but probably a good idea. Unfortunately problem was still there. Plug in diagnostic module at transmission specialist showed no current faults when they first checked it, but a look through the fault history when I took it back and told them problem was still there showed a fault with the TPS or Throttle Position Sensor. Replaced that (not very expensive) and its been perfect ever since. May not be your problem, but get the transmission guy to check fault history, not just current faults. Don't know why my guy didn't do it the first time. Best of luck

Holden Rodeo 2001, check engine light keeps coming on!?


I'm having same problem on my 2000 model rodeo 4wd 3.2L V6. Other day check engine light came on. I checked engine bay nothing abnormal, or power loss. Next day light was gone. 2 days later driving, a sudden loss of power and light came up. After idling for a couple of minutes, drove off with light still on but all power back. 1 hour later of faultless driving loss of power for a minute or so. Engine temp normal. Had break for 1/2 hour and set off for last hour of journey without fault except check engine light still on. Following dayon startup light went out???
