#8 of 168 Transmission Maintenance 2004 Rodeo
Feb 10, 2007 (8:20 am)
2004 Isuzu Rodeo 3.2 Automatic
I wanted to know when is the transmission maintenance sue. The manual is not clear on this. It only suggest when to check the fluid not when it should be changed. I have asked the dealer they said every 30K. I use to have a 2000 Amigo wich has the same engine and that had a sealed transmission and had to be changed at 120,000 miles. The Rodeo I have now does not have a sealed transmission. Im also about to hit 42K.
#9 of 168 1991 rodeo having shifting problems with automatic transmission
Mar 02, 2007 (6:11 pm)
the automatic transmission in my 91 rodeo is shifting "in" and "out" of various gears. "check transmission" light flickers and transmission starts to act up and will actually shift out of gear and into Neutral or when coming to a stop it will not shift all the way down to low but will start out in 2nd. I've been told it may be a "Range sensor". this was suggested after having a scanner hooked up which indicated the trans. was in Reverse when the shifter was in Park. any thoughts?

I had a similar problem with my 2002 Rodeo. It wouldn't shift out of 1st gear. I had to get the transmission replaced at the nearest mechanic shop. Isuzu wouldn't honor the warranty telling me I should have had it towed 50 miles to the dealer. I don't think the 6 month old in the car at the time would have liked riding in the tow truck.
Anyway, once the repair shop relaced the transmission, it seemed to be okay. Of course my bank account is $4k lighter. So much for the 10 year warranty.

I was wondering is there a dip stick in these rodeos? I can't find one and 4 mavchanics said I had to take it a Isuzuz dealer to have it fixed and they would just adjust it with a key. Is this true?
Also when I put it in drive I can't move. Alls my car does is rev the engine up and then it jumps and then I can move again. Until I come to a complete stop and then we do it all over again. It is almost like the feeling of hitting a patch of ice. U go skating and revving the engine up only u are not moving. Now it is doing the same thing in reverse too. So what is going on here and what do I need to do.
#12 of 168 Manual Transmission Removal Problems
Apr 04, 2007 (12:21 pm)
Hi, I'm new to this form. I'm trying to remove my manual transmission off of a 95 Rodeo V6.
The orginal problem is that it got stuck in second gear. Meaning that the stick is in neutral and when I let the clutch out it goes and I cannot shift into any other gears other than 5th and reverse but when I do this I cannot move.
So all of my bellhousing bolts are off and the transmission is loose but will not come off. I tried raising it and lowering in different positions but no luck. Also triple checked for any missed bolts. My guess is that it is still connected to the engine via 2nd gear. The only thing I can think to do at this point is mount the slave cylinder and have sombody push on the clutch. While I pull it out until it unlocks then remove the slave.

Hello fellas, just bought a 02 Rodeo Sport, When I get to an almost complete stop and let off the brake pedal there is a clunk coming out of underneath the car. Not sure if it is an mounting point, tranny or driveshaft, but at any other speeds it is just smooth. Any ideas?

I think 2002 was the last year of the 10 year/ 120,000 mile powertrain warranty for the ORIGINAL owner. Subsequent owners only got 5 year 60,000 warranty if I remember correctly (might have been able to transfer the 10/120 warranty to a family member only). Bumper to Bumper was 3 years 50,000 miles. Go to www.isuzu.com click on "Owners" and the Warranty link is in there.
2003 warranty changed to 7/70.

Thanks for feedback on warranty, took the zu for a check at the dealer I bought it from they said it is the Driveshaft which needs lube.

I have an 93 Rodeo V6 4-WD I started it up and its starts shaking. When you push the gas you will be at 30 mph and the RPM's will be high and you can't seem to go any faster. Could this be the transmission going out on it?
