Question about 2002 Isuzu Axiom
What is the location of the fill hole for the transmission on the axiom???
There is no dipstick or filling ports in the engine bay. underneath the car near the valve boby pan there are 2 bolts, one for draining the trans., and one for filling the trans. this is not the easiest of repairs and it is quite messy. drop cloths or some kind of catch would be wise. first drain the pan by removing the lower bolt. allow the fluid to completely drain and reinsert bolt. next remove the larger (valve body) pan. there is a filter that you will see is held in place by 3 bolts, remove filter and replace with new one. clean mating surfaces of all debris and fluids. next apply the gasket to the pan you just removed and cleaned. fill the empty pan with about 3-4 quarts of new ATF. a second pair of hands here is recommended. together realign pan to trans. careful not to spill fluid! apply a few bolts to allow for free hands. insert all bolts DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN BOLTS! this is very important, only tighten bolts until gasket just starts to squish. over tighten and you risk a new leak.
now the messy pain in the **** part. in oder to check fluid level, you need to have car parked on level ground. remove the upper bolt from the pan you just reapplied. You will need some sort of pump and a few feet of hose to complete the filling process. fill until fluid runs back out the hole, quickly insert bolt, tighten to specs. and wipe exterior of pan to see for any new leaks.
this should solve any trans. slips do to ATF seepage.
best of luck
