Re: auot transmission light
Your best bet to figure this out is to take the vehichle to a local parts store, like AutoZone, Napa, or Advance Auto Parts. Once there you can request the to test the check light for you and they will bring a small handheld computer out to the SUV to check the codes and then you can look it up to see what the code error is for. You can also take it to a mechanic but they will charge you to read the code. Good luck.

If your mechanics say the mass air flow sensor, fuel pump and fuel filter is good then check your intake Manifold Gasket. It is a hard 1/4 inch thick plastic gasket that cracks frequently and causes sputtering when letting off your gas pedal and eventually lead to stalling at red lights and stop signs if cracked bad enough.
search around for auto recyclers via a google search. find one with a searchable inventory, they are out there. marshall's in circleville, ohio is one. search for a transmission for a 99 isuzu trooper and for a 01 trooper transmission. if they have the same interchange part number, you are good to go. if not, you will find certainly one that is.
I worked at Dealership which sold these things new. The transmission is notoriously weak...have a transmission shop you trust check it out. I have rebuilt a few of those transmissions,and overdrive is usually the first thing to let go.Don't drive it for long:the contamination running thru the trans.will cause more damage,add to the repair and leave you stranded somewhere.Sorry but I don't think you are getting away cheaplyThe Honda Passport is a Rodeo with a Honda grille.you can still buy some Isuzu mechanical stuff thru Honda stores.Good luck
In fact, you can. The large transmission pan has two plugs in the bottom. The higher one is a fill plug. The lower one is a drain plug. The proper procedure for checking the level is: A) Drive vehicle until transmission reaches operating temperature (go for a 30 min drive). B) Park vehicle and apply emergency brake, run gear selector through all gears (engine running, pausing 5 sec.'s in each gear) from Park, down, and back to Park (very important to be in park when checking level). C) Immediately remove the upper fill plug and check level with your finger, it should be just up to the hole, fill as necessary. NOTE: If more than a dribble of fluid drains out when you first open the fill plug then it was overfilled or the procedure was not followed. Use a catch pan under the hole just in case. Filling of the fluid is by means of a small pump and hose, commonly found at auto parts stores.
