1998 Isuzu Trooper XLS
Four Wheel Drive
With the trooper fully loaded (5 adults and xmas tree on top) we started to hear and feel a " clunk" as the Trooper shifted from 2nd to 3rd, but nothing abnormal from 1st to 2nd or 3rd to 4th or during any downshift. This was on our way back from cutting down a XMas tree with very little offroad ( no 4wheel engaged ) and around 40 highway miles. I heard this could be due to " the bands" but am unsure of this. Any ideas? BTW: This vehicle has seen all major and minor services (oil every 3k. 30k, 60k and even 90 and 120k checkups eventhough it only has 65k miles on it). Transmission fluid has been changed every 3 years and all fuilds checked every weekend. Bottom line, this vehicle has been taken WELL care of.
