View Full Version : 2001 Isuzu Rodeo Transmission

I just bought a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo and it has a problem with shifting from 1st gear.(Auto) I can drive up to 35MPH then it shuts down like it is in neutral until it reaches about 15MPH then you can drive it in first again. I have checked all the fluids, and the transmission oil, it smells clean and looks clean. I have also cleaned the terminals in the transmission mode sensor that sits on the drivers side transmission shifter. Any suggestions as to what the problem might be?

cazorn - Sounds like you have a hard part failure in the transmission. You should think about taking it to a transmission shop so they can do a pressure test to see what is wrong. You can always pull it out at home and take just the transmission to them to be repaired. You can save some money doing most of the leg work yourself.
