SOURCE: how to change oil transmission isuzu rodeo 2003

There are two drain plugs on the bottom of the pan. remove the lower one to drain the trans fluid. To refill, use a pump and pump the fluid into the upper drain plug until it seeps out and re-install the plug, similar to refilling a manual trans.
Once this is done, Start the vehicle and run it for about 3 minutes, shifting through all gears (do not drive vehicle Remove the upper drain plug and let any excess fluid drain out. Done. This is as per Mitchell OnDemand.

SOURCE: how to check transmission fluid on 2001 isuzu rodeo

There is no dipstick on your auto trans. Checking it is a real PITA The trans pan has 2 plugs in it. The one on the very bottom is the drain. The one in the corner, up higher in a recess is the check/fill plug. To check, the engine must be warm and running, tranny in P. Remove the plug and fluid should dribble out. If it doesn't it's low, fill until it dribbles out, while engine is running. Obviously the truck must be on a lift or up on jackstands.

SOURCE: Cruise control & check trammission light comes on my 2001 Rodeo

I had that problem too and the issue was a loose wire connecting the engine control modude to the crankshaft sensor switch. The engine control module does not sense where the crankshaft position is when the wire moves, and that causes things to go snaky, such as the transmission and cruise lights coming on. This issue took a good mechanic in Syracuse one and a half weeks to find. Total cost was $425.00,$395.00 for labour, and $.99 for the new wire. Good luck!

SOURCE: My automatic 96 isuzu rodeo no longer engages in

Hahahaha!... Seriously....!?!?! First off don't try to use a scan tool. The 4WD system isn't integrated into the OBD system. You won't get any codes related to 4WD.

Most likely the problem is defective shift solenoids. There are two shift solenoids which control the engagement and disengagement of the 4WD (locking the front axle gear into the the driveshaft input). These solenoids are located on the front axle. They have their own small skid plate. One is blue, and one is gray. One controls engagement, and one controls disengagement. One is a normally closed electrically controlled vacuum solenoid, and one is a normally open electrically controlled vacuum solenoid.

I'm not blindly recommending changing these, but usually one of these are the culprit of the problems you described. I'm even more confident in those being the problem due to your explanation of the the intermittent problems. At any rate test first.

The other components of the 4WD system are the vacuum lines and the actuator which is also located on the front axle and covered by the forementioned small skidplate. Moderate to serious rock-involved off-roading with a stock suspension usually results in this component being damaged.

Hi please help my Isuzu 4L 30 E auto transmission bump when down change I have been changed all solenoid but the same problems so what it wrong ? Thanks

what isuzu is this, model car or truck
no model stated. (wild guess RODEO)
no year stated, 1991 to 2001 used.
no engine size state or of gas(petrol) or diesel
zero input just 4l30e box, lots of those
so Ill daftly
it's a car a ,(see list at end)
and has TCM that shifts those solenoids.
check fuses yet?
scan it yet, scan it to see all those TCM errors yet?DTC P07xx errors>
seems not.
why change the solenoids.??? hard work for a guess.

symptoms, decoded
hash shifting.
only when it downs shifts, but all lower gears?
or 3>2 only.
the Tcm SHIFTs the box.
it shifts based on
and driver demands.
this are all sensors. every one.

just like on new cars.
the TCM (brain) can go to limphome mode
and guess what?, it will shift funny,for sure.
crude as h3ll and may skip gears (and more)
that you think are harsh but in fact the skipping gear is the cause ,harsh is effects.

All modern car ,needs a scan tool to work all cars
i guess you dont know that.?

scan it
get it scanned
buy the tool.
rent it.
no car stated, so can't wax too savvy!
not at all.
is car in USA?

the book shows this.
"High Flow" Pulse Width Modulated
Solenoid (for 3-2 Downshifts Only)
id bet, limphome mode cancels this modulation...!

runs highest/newest # DEXRON fluid, (VI)
are levels at spec. not overfilled, using correct method of the BOOK.???

I have a 2000 Isuzu Rodeo. I pulled off from the traffic light and heard a pop then the check trans light started flashing. Did a diagnostics check and it indicated the shift solenoid A was stuck in the on...

most likely it would, the least expensive way to try to fix it is a transmission filter and fluid change. the internal solenoids will start to get a varnish on them if not serviced regularly. I don't know how many miles you have been since the last transmission service or how many miles are on your vehicle. you could ad a cleaner into the transmission to see if that would help, they make stuff designed to clean up varnish buildup.

On my 2001 isuze rodeo is the shift solonoid inside the transmission and or can it be changed without pulling the trans. ?

It is inside the transmission under the belly pan mounted to the valve body. You just remove the transmission pan (not the transmission for heavens sake) and replace the shift solenoid pack.

Where on the transmission -- is the shift solenoid located on the 2002 Isuzu Rodeo

It is located just under the pan in a block called the valve body, it contains 2 shift solenoids, and a million little canals for oil. There is no drain plug on it, just have to drop the pan and spill out the fluid, that drips for months afterward. You can change these things if you are handy, if not, don't even attempt it. Watch out for the check balls,
