Hi Cellman,
I agree with jdawson....I think that what you're dealing with there is a defective box....The flush idea is a very good one....It's advisable, even when you have a new box, to flush out an auto box at least once every year, to keep the operation smooth and wear to a minimum....I can't recommend any specific chemicals, as where I am, we don't have any available.... A good meathod to determine if it's over-due, pull the dip stick out and smell the oil...if it smells burned it's over due....

The method we use here in Africa, is to use the same ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid) we'll be using to run the vehicle with during normal running....drain the fluid and refill with new fluid....If you're in a place where you get a replacement filter, change that too.....To do that you'll have to drop the oil pan....You'll see the filter mounted under the valve body assembly, It may be fastened there with two or three (or more bolts....Keep in mind that, as with all auto engineering, cleanliness is a top requirement, more especially if you open an auto box....Re-assemble the filter housing and re-fit the pan...After refilling with new fluid and fitting a new filter (if possible) Next step is to chock the wheels, apply the brake and then with your foot kept ******* the brake pedal, start the engine and change into each gear...Count to three for each change from P move into R..N..D..Over drive off (if fitted)...3...2...and then up again until you complete the cycle....Do the same thing again two more times and then switch off the engine wait about twenty minutes to cool and then drain and refill again....If the oil smelled very burned at the start, it may be a good idea to replace the filter a second time....
....If that doesn't work I think you'll need to take the box to specialists to have it re-built....It sounds to me as if the valve body needs attention and if that's so you'll need special tools and a lot of experience....

Good luck and best wishes

I DO NOT THINK THAT IT IS GOING TO BE AND ADJUSTMENT ISSUE, BUT IT IS POSSIBLE. THE FIRST THING THAT I WOULD RECOMEND IS TO HAVE A COMPLETE TRANSMISSION FLUSH PREFORMED. MAKE SHURE IT IS A FLUSH AND NOT AND DRAIN AND FILL. RECOMEND FINDING A SHOP THAT USES BG PRODUCTS. BG HAS THE BEST CHEMICALS ON THE MARKET.

Hello
You will need to have an experienced technical drive this before attempting any repairs, but my gut feeling is that you will need to rebuilt the transmission. That takes many special tools and a high degree of skill and training and is not something that really can be done at home with common hand tools.

I have a 2001 Holden rodeo 3.2L V6 auto have a problem between 40-60k's an hr it goes to change from 2nd to 3rd and seems to completely forget to go into 3rd and revs out and will not Go into gear unless I...


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

Auto Gear hard shift


Either: Your low on transmission fluid, you need to replace the filter, or there's something wrong with the transmission.

2nd gear clutching


STOP Downshifting!
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.

Auto transmission not smooth 1st to 2nd


Admitting a lack of familiarity with your car, this is often caused by an improper adjustment of the transition point from one gear (or clutch) to another.
1st is still not disengaged when 2nd is engaging but this is normally an adjustable point.

I've also seen this caused by the use (or adding) of the wrong fluid; the beasts are fussy about that sometimes.
