There is no dipstick on your auto trans. Checking it is a real PITA The trans pan has 2 plugs in it. The one on the very bottom is the drain. The one in the corner, up higher in a recess is the check/fill plug. To check, the engine must be warm and running, tranny in P. Remove the plug and fluid should dribble out. If it doesn't it's low, fill until it dribbles out, while engine is running. Obviously the truck must be on a lift or up on jackstands.

There are 2 metallic pipes from the transmission and go to the radiator for cooling the fluid, one of these pipes goes with the fluid to the radiator, it can be used to fill the tray transmission. But it's especially after the drain, there is a small mechanical pump you put on the end of the pipe then you pump it until you put the 5.4 quarts of oil to put on.

SOURCE: transmission fluid level

I have a 1998 Isuzu Rodeo however when I purchased the vehicle I managed to obtain a service manual on mine.
Mine is a V-6 3.2liter engine with automatic transmission and it took me a while to find out where I added transmission fluid at too.

It is located under the vehicle on the Passenger side of the vehicle and it is located on the transmission just before the transfer case. There is like a eye beam across one side to another then there is like a Indent the lower one is for drain and the upper one with a larger bolt like plug is the fill hole. I used a turkey baster with a large bulb like affair to **** the transmission fluid in to it from the bottle then I inserted the baster up and into the hole vacated by the plug. Then squeezed the fluid into the transmission and kept at it till the fluid dripped out on its own. I hurried and inserted the plug into the hole and screwed into it and tightened it up and lowered the vehicle down checked after the vehicle had been warmed up and re jacked the vehicle up and rechecked and all I needed was a small squirt into it and it was full and since then it has been running really well since.

SOURCE: How to check transmission fluid

Easier done on a lift, but you need to start the vehicle and let it warm up and then remove the fill plug not yhr drain plug, (with the vehicle running) the plug will be found on the transmission pan but it is NOT the one on the very bottom of the pan, there is another plug up in the corner of the pan on the passenger side. Remove this plug carefully, for the fluid will be warm to hot, if a little runs out of the hole your ok, if nothing comes out with the plug completely removed you need to add a little at a time thru this hole until it runs back out. DO NOT SHUT THE ENGINE OFF WITH THIS PLUG OUT, fluid will run out if you do.

To get fluid in the hole, attach a small hose to a filler top off of a gear oil bottle and put that top on your tranny fluid bottle, turn it upside and squeeze the fluid in using the hose to get it into the pan. If you have a fluid pump it would be better but if not this will work.

under the truck you will see the large trans fluid pan. there are two 3/4 inch bolts. one recessed about 2 inches and one flush with the bottom of the pan.  The recessed one is the fill tube and the non recessed one is the drain.  You will need a pump of some sort to pump the fluid in the fill tube until it starts draining out.  I think if you start the truck the fluid will lower and you can put more fluid in until it drains again.  I dont know yet what kind of fluid to use.

ill read you the official service bull. TSB

4L30E/4L60E Transmission Fluid 2003 publ.

The correct fluid to use in all Isuzu vehicles equipped with the 4L30E or 4L60E automatic
transmissions is DEXRON®-III with a G-License Number (G-34318), Isuzu part number: 2-
90531-815-0 or equivalent (see figure 1).
When checking for correct fluid level, follow the procedures in the appropriate Workshop
Manual.
NOTE: Incorrect fluid or incorrect fluid level may cause shift complaints and/or transmission
damage.

that means use DEXRON VI now. DEX 6. what is seen on the shell NOW, 2016.
dex 3 is obsolete.


holds 18 pints, dry, fill
way less, simply drain in place. 6 pints falls out
if levels is ok now.
what you do measure what came out, drained and put back that exact amount.

Where is the temperature light for my transmission fluid; I have a 2004 Isuzu Rodeo


There is no temperature light for your transmission fluid. Isuzu Rodeos are unique in the way that they have no dip stick or any way of checking your tranny fluid. You need to take it to a transmission specialist and they can drain all the fluid and replace it with new. It should cost around $180. Being low on transmission fluid can cause it to slip, eventually resulting in a blown transmission.

Eratic transmission shifting vibrates and slips when turning


It's low on transmission fluid! It has to be checked and pumped in from the bottom of pan. Check for leaks too.

2001 Isuzu Rodeo stalls and shuts down when put in drive


  1. Remove the transmission oil drain screw and drain fluid.
  2. Tighten drain screw. Torque: 38 Nm (28 ft.lbs.)
  3. Remove the transmission overfill screw and fill transmission through overfill screw opening, using DEXRON III ATF. NOTE: Add transmission fluid until it flows out over the overfill screw opening.
  4. Let engine idle until a fluid temperature between 32°C (90°F) and 57°C (135°F) is reached.
  5. Add transmission fluid until it flows out over the overfill screw opening, then close the overfill screw. Torque: 38 Nm (28 ft.lbs.) NOTE: Check transmission fluid temperature with scan tool.


Chances are judging from what I've read about this transmission...
The fluid has probably never been changed unless you know it's been done.
My suspicion would be that the Torque Converter Lock-up Solenoid may be stuck in the "on" position causing your stall when you try to engage Drive.
This means the torque converter isn't allowing the slip you need to get into gear.
This may be a job for a transmission shop...
I hope this has helped.
