at high RPMS, the Rodeo hesitates fairly badly, when shifting from 2nd to
What it does is, it'll pause around 4900rpm, lose a couple hundred RPM, rev
up a few more hundred RPM, then shift into 3rd.. only does this under hard
driving, and only in this gear (i think.. never drove it hard enough to
make it shift from 3rd to OD at that RPM).. 1st to 2nd shifts fine.
Under moderate acceleration it still hesitates slightly, though not as
much, and light acceleration is a ery smooth shift from 2nd to 3rd gear..
I've checked trans fluid, it's fine..
It doesnt matter if the vehicle has been driving all around, or if it is
just started first time for the day.. it ALWAYS does that hesitation.. I'm
kinda scared to take it to a trans shop.. seems every time I take one of my
vehicles to a transmission shop to get it looked at, they say "oh its fine"
and a week or so later, someone VERY serious goes wrong and they say I need
a full rebuild of the transmission.. thats happened with 3 different
vehicles at 2 different shops.. (one of the shops is run by a guy my folks
have known for years.. but I dont trust him.. I had him replace my driver's
side power window motor.. and 2 days later, the back passenger-side window
started behaving EXACTLY like the other window before the replacement..
Not to mention I asked the guy to replace a single spark plug when he did
it, because I couldnt get to that particular one.. and when I got the truck
back, the spark plug wires were torn.. BRAND NEW WIRES.. needless to say, I
havent taken a vehicle back to him.
