Question about 2001 Isuzu Rodeo
How do u put transmission fluid in it ???
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.

The newer Isuzu Models do not have a Filler or Dipstick for the Transmission. Most of the Import cars and trucks are this way now. This is a Dealer Service Item Only. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

You have to both check and add fluid to these vehicles from underneath the vehicle. Find the transmission fluid pan and you will find two plugs. The lower plug will drain the pan and the upper one you can add fluid or check the fluid level. You will know that the level is correct when the plug is out and fluid barely leaks out of the hole. You don't want a lot coming out because you don't want to overfill. In order to get it into the hole you have to be some sort of tube to attach to the top of the bottle. They sell these types of tubes at your auto part store and they just screw on. It is very awkward, but you can actually put the bottle high enough to get the fluid in if you put it right to the left of the pan. The first time I did this on mine it was a pain but once you figure it out you will be good to go. Let me know if you have any other questions about your vehicle. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Lee2fixit doesn't know what he talks about on 99 Rodeos.
There is no dipstick tube - there are two access holes on the side of the transmission. The bottom one is to drain it out. The top one is to fill it back up. It is full when the fluid comes up to the bottom of the top hole.
Or you can take it to a dealer or service center to have it done.

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.

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.
