Summary: my friend gave me their old trooper that's been sitting. Was able to get it started just fine.

Was able to come back today (it's located far from me) and wanted to take it to smog. They were unable to smog it because the transmission is slipping.

Looking for recommendations of shops I could take it to in Berkeley & Oakland Area. The trooper is currently in Antioch and I would call for a tow back to berk.

Thanks

Damn, sorry to hear about that. It's a story we hear way too often with these transmissions. Probably your best bet is to call around and find which transmission shops have the most isuzu/4L30E experience, and get some quotes. Been a good while since I've taken a car to a shop so I wouldn't know where to begin besides yelp.

If you can't find anyone locally I have customers from 7 different states. Many are form the bay area too. You are welcome to bring your Trooper to my place near Reno Nevada for repair. I can also perform manual trasmission conversions, off road modifications, overlanding builds & complete vehicle restoration.

Thank you. I think that is a bit much for me at the moment but I'll consider it if the cost to repair isn't too great since I just paid to have the car towed back to Berkeley.

Mine was slipping and then banging into gear. A drain and fill helped a bit. Then I drained some and put a bottle of the Lucas in, then topped it off and it shifted firmly for a while but it faded over the course of a few hundred miles. I have since swapped to a manual :)
