how many miles is on the rodeo?
hello the rodeo has 150000 miles on it
are you saying it does have reverse?
yes it has reverse but to drive forward you have to push the snow button
you are saying you nee to put it into low 4wd for it to have drive?
when you push the button you can drive forward and drives well but when you come to a complete stop you have to push the button again in order to be able to drive again
yes i believe that is the button
can you drive it out on the road after you get it going?does it shift well?
yes i can drive it on the road and it shifts well we also drove it on the freeway and now nothing
the first thing to do here is to check the transmission fluid
it may be low
it has no dipstick,,and must be done under the truck
no its not low its full
then,,,i would think..you have a major problem
it sounds as if your foward druive clutch frictions may be burnt
you really need to let a transmission shop drive the rodeo to confirm this
its is not driveable at all now
but it does have reverse now?
it has always had reverse
and,,it will not move in no forward gear,..right>?
sorry,,but,,i dont see an easy fix
i think from the way you explain
the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced
it was repaired
you have had it rebuilt?is it still under warrenty?
do you think it could be an electrical problem with the transmission
does the enginelight stay on?
can you give me the computer codes/?
i took it to auto zone and they ran a test do you think the oxygen sensors have anything to do with it
i would think your transmission is burnt out again,,sorry
the computer found only the 4 oxygen sensors to be the possible problem
i dont think it is electrical
ok so do you think we would have to rebuild the transmission again
yes..or replace it with a known good one
ok so if i rebuild or replace the transmission do you think this would help out my problem and if so how sure are you cuz i dont have the kind of money to waste
yes...i am fairly sure a rebuild will fix you
again...when you take it to the trans shop..they will be able to be 100% sure
i changed the oil filter and the transmission and when i took it off we saw two wires with a long piece of metal going inside the box of valves and the wire head broke when i put it back on it was the same do you think this could be the problem or a problem with it
well...if you have a bad wire harness to the transmission
you certainly need to fix that
but..it should at least go into low gear with no harness connected
this is why i think the transmission itself is bad
well it doesnt and where could i find the piece to fix that
are the wires just broken and need to be connected?
its not the wires i bellieve its the metal piece and the metal piece is about 4 inches long and its round
i wouldnt think this has anything to do with your problem
if it is a metal tube,,you may need to have it welded
its a plastic coneector that goes to the round metal
i cant see that image well could you please try to send it again to where i could see it ALOT better
sorry this is the only way i can send the picture
to give you an idea of how to fix your hat piece,,i may have to see it
do you know where i could find the pieces to fix it cuz its easy to take it off and i could probably do it myself
i would think this is something that you may need to get at your local salvage yard
from the rodeo or the honda passport
the part is inside the transmission and the salvage yard sells it all together and i just need that piece so where could i find just that piece at
does it have an electrical plug on it?
give me just a moment
i would think you would need to replace the internal wire harness
this can be bought from transtar
i may have a phone#
they will have this
ok thank u
you are very welcome
ps..your transmission is a gm 4l30e
