I hace a 99 rodeo and it does the same thing on the first sart of the day is takes me 5 or more turns of the key and holding it for it to crank but once it does it shakes like a dog scratching fleas. I let it idle for about a min or 2 and it is fine for the rest of the day. I have to change me spark plugs ab out ever 500 miles or so because it starts skipping. That fixes the problem for about a day or 2 and then its back to the not cranking and shaking. I have no idea!!!

This helped fix mine, cleaned the Mass air flow sensor and screan, used throtle body spray cleaner. Rmoved the air cleaner lid from MAF sprayed down screan while running, car died finished spraying it down, let set for a while then started ran bad for few min. Started fine next morning. Its been a week and still running good.

I have found if I turn key on (without starting) and wait for a click under hood and repeat 3 times then start it runs great, can't figure that out, but it works on mine.

I wonder whether there might be a problem with your starter relay (solenoid). From your description, it sounds like it's sticking and not engaging promptly so it might be gummed up or it's not getting enough electrical current. Anyone else have any ideas?

#12 of 12 2001 Isuzu Rodeo transmission not catching
Aug 24, 2012 (8:08 pm)
Its been progressively getting worse, when I start the Rodeo and put it in drive and press the gas to go, it just revs the RPM's up until it finally catches 1st gear and it also does the same when shifting to 2nd... Its an automatic with 135k on it, took it to a friend of mine who happens to be a mechanic and he said to replace the whole transmission... Are there any other ideas that might fix or improve the trany shifting ability?
