Why is Your 1988 Trooper’s Transmission So Important?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. 1988 Isuzu Trooper transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Isuzu Trooper transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your Trooper isn’t working at all.

1988 Isuzu Trooper Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Isuzu? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Isuzu tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Trooper’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Trooper is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Trooper's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Isuzu Trooper transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Isuzu's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Can my Isuzu Trooper leak transmission fluid? Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Isuzu Trooper, potentially causing transmission problems. A transmission fluid leak may be caused by a damaged transmission pan, faulty transmission cooler lines, worn-out seals, a cracked transmission housing, or an overfilled transmission.

  • Is it okay to drive a Trooper with a transmission fluid leak? You should avoid driving with a transmission fluid leak. Your transmission system relies on transmission fluid to operate properly, and a leak may decrease performance, cause your Trooper to overheat, or even lead to transmission failure.
