Customer Question

Isuzu Rodeo Denver Max 3.0 auto 2005. Last few time out has found "neutral" gears, particularly when cold. Now no drive through the gearbox. Could it be the torque converter or gearbox at fault? How would I know which?

Hi . Sorry you are having issue with your transmission . But first if not already checked please check the transmission fluid level and condition ,this will give us an insight of what may the problem be.First with a warm engine check the level of the fluid .if low top off and test drive. If good then check condition if black and dirty then internal malfunction and this is you problem .you will need a complete trans O/H or replacement. If fluid is good and clean and transparent red to light brown then all is good . Noe you need a good diagnostic scan tool to check for transmission malfunction codes . The malfunction code will point you in the right direction id Converter or just a input or output speed sensor which is the most common issue for you problem.Malfunction code will confirm this .Still need additional information then please get back to me with the reply button, and not the poor or bad service, this way i can get back to you or suggest another expert if needed.
