hesitation uphill

Asked by Dec 21, 2015 at 02:21 AM about the 1995 Isuzu Rodeo 4 Dr LS 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Two major problems I need help with. Recently
bought a 95 rodeo 6cyl. Auto Runs fine until I'm in
third gear traveling up a hill the engine bogs down
push gas pedal to the floor and nothing back off a
little bit it starts to shake and loses speed until it
shifts itself into second then won't shift back into
third until I let off gas or top the hill. Have noticed
oil in plug housings and original owner said it
needed new egr valve (which I cleaned) no check
engine light unless I'm on interstate but the light
comes on for trans oil temp then check engine
comes on. I can pull off interstate and take back
roads with no more problems. At least until I reach
a hill.

Trans light means a transmission issue of course, the symptoms for what you are describing sounds like the transmission is slipping and adding heat to the trans fluid/oil. The bands in the transmission are probably burnt, slipping not allowing it to shift under load, Cuold also be the torque convertor, so basically your looking at a trans rebuild or replacement. The check engine light can be many things, you will need to scan the SUV for the code. Is the rest of the Rodeo in nice shape to dump a lot of money into it?

But the transmission shifts just fine on flats. And the only time the trans light comes on is when I use cruise on interstate. But I think that's because of a faulty helper fan but I'm no mechanic. And as for the rest of it body is great interior is great

    I have had several incidents when I accelerate uphill where my tach goes up to 4000rpm but the Jeep can't go over 50. Sometimes it hesitates and seems to lose power, but when I let off gas it's okay...

    We have changed fuel filter, air filter, plugs, coil packs, nothing helps. It has about 50k miles, 4 cyl engine. Also seems to be getting less gas mileage than normal.
