I have a 1995 isuzu trooper with a 4 L 30 E automatic transmission. It is having problems shifting when I gun it. If I drive slow and keep my foot out of it it shifts just fine. But at about 3200 RPM it starts to slip pretty bad it will hold better going into second than it does going into third. I completely rebuilt the transmission and installed a shift kit and it still has the same problem. I had a guy from a local transmission shop drive it and he doesn't think it is the shift solenoid.

Poor Shifting My cousin has a 2000 isuzu rodeo LS (V6). Once the transmission gets good and hot, it does not want to shift out of 2nd gear. Once it is in 3rd, it starts popping and downshifts back into 2nd. He took it to the shop yesterday and they claimed to have filled it up with transmission fluid, but he still has the problem.


Well, if it was low on fluid, and it was driven for a distance, you could of wrecked the interior gears of the tranni or other parts. I'm not a tranni guy but I know if you run a vechile with low tranni fluid you're asking for a new tranni or to hav ... 2000 Isuzu Rodeo

I use a 2000 model Isuzu Trooper Limited Edition. MILs indicate 'check trans' and 'check engine' on my dashboard. Scanning reported Code P1870. My experience is sluggish up-shift from 1-2 and refusal to engage gear 4 on long distance drives or sustained high speed driving. Can you please tell me what could be possibly wrong and how to fix it; the Isuzu is recommended to use Dexron III but I am using Dexron II, could this be responsible for the problem? Please help me, somebody. Humphrey.

My 2008 Subaru Outback continues to have delayed shifting. The problem occurs most often when turn right up a slight incline. Recently, the same problem occured when shifting from 1st to 2nd. As I turn and gently step on the gas, the engine rpm's increase, but the transmission hesitates before shifting. The shift seems to "stutter" before engaging. I have reported the problem to Subaru, at least twice, and before the warrantee expired.

2 problems. first problem, once the truck is started it won't shift out of park. i have to shut it off and shift into neutral and start it again and then shift into gear. second problem, the truck sounds like its missing and then it sputters badly when accelerating. hooked it up to a computer and it said number 4 plug wasn't firing. i replaced all the plugs and plug wires and still got the same problem. replaced the coils and it still didn't work.any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
