Question about 2001 Isuzu Rodeo
2001 isuzu rodeo
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.

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.
