What’s the Importance of Your 1998 Rodeo’s Transmission?

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 1998 Isuzu Rodeo transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Isuzu Rodeo transmission trouble you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Rodeo’s not even driveable.

1998 Isuzu Rodeo Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Isuzu's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Isuzu tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Rodeo’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Rodeo is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Rodeo transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1998 Rodeo’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Isuzu. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
  • Can transmission fluid leak from my Isuzu Rodeo? Yes. Isuzu Rodeo transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues. Worn or damaged seals, a loose or damaged transmission pan, a cracked transmission housing, faulty transmission cooler lines, or an overfilled transmission could cause transmission fluid leaks.
  • Who fixes Isuzu Rodeo transmission leaks? Look to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for Rodeo transmission system diagnostics and repairs. Schedule an appointment online today.
  • Can I still drive my Isuzu Rodeo if it has a transmission fluid leak? Driving with a transmission fluid leak is not recommended. Transmission fluid is essential to the proper operation of the transmission system, and a leak can cause serious problems, including reduced performance, overheating, and potentially transmission failure.
