2002 Isuzu Axiom Q&A
2002 Isuzu Axiom Question: transmission
Just bought this car one week ago. Seemed to have no problems. Now it will not go in any gear. Will not move out of tracks. - Visitor
Check the fluid level first to see if it happens to be low. If not, an internal issue is likely. Have a test done to determine if it's issue is mechanical or electrical. - DaveJHM
Can we assume you mean that you put it in gear and the car won't move? If so, the transmission is low on fluid. There is no dipstick on this GM modified trans, and all the cars that use it, including BMW, had problems with this. If the car was not serviced regularly, and the trans fluid and filter were never changed, it may be too late to save. The trans has what appear to be two drain plugs, but one is in the corner of the pan and is raised up above the bottom of the pan. This is the "FILL" plug. The car has to be raised level, the plug removed and trans fluid pumped into it - while the car is running in Park and with the fluid at operating temp. - until fluid starts to come back out of the hole. Then, obviously, put the plug back in. It sounds like you need to drop the pan and rinse off the gunk all over the bottom of the valve body, clean out the pan, put a new filter in and renew the fluid (top up the trans as described above before you start it up and let it heat up. The excess fluid will drain out of the fill hole as it warms up. However, if your trans has been ignored and run until it is out of fluid, there is a good chance the trans has been damaged. Bad news is that if you need a new trans in a TOD Axiom, it will be in excess of $3K, unless you know someone. Luckily, when I bought mine, the dealer included a drive train warranty and my reman tranny cost me $100.00. Good luck, if you can save it, they are a great vehicle. - QinVA

I do not get quick acceleration, it tends to stagger and I have to let up off the gas pedel and slowly accelerate or other wise it just hesitates. It acts as though it is stuck in one gear until dr...
