All of a sudden our 01 isuzu rodeo has trouble going into

Customer Question

All of a sudden our 01 isuzu rodeo has trouble going into gear. When you start the truck & put it in any gear, it will act like its in neutral and you give it gas and after a few minutes it will go. Checked the fluid and it didn't take much and doesn't smell or look burnt. it doesn't make grinding noises or clatter. Once your in gear, its fine. but if you have to stop, it does the same thing. Could it be electric? solenoid?

Welcome, I am Chris (aka-Moose)

When you stop and it occurs again if that means it occurs at a stop signs while still running then its not electrical. It is a concern in the valve body with not enough pressure getting to the clutches inside the transmission.

Turns out you were not close. We replaced alternator & all is well. Turns out car went into "limp home mode" when it sensed alternator going out. We didnt know there was such a thing. Why was more $ withdrawn from my bank account?? Who authorized that? If you are not who I need to talk to, then please tell me who to contact? I am not happy about this. Please email right away Moose.

Glad you got it resolved. Sorry I was not aware you had a battery light on and battery draining issues. You need to contact the website about your money concerns, i have nothing to do with that, nor do I work for the website.
