That is a common problem on this transmission. You can get one from a transmission parts supply company. It is held in with a snap-ring and it has a big spring pushing it out towards the snap-ring. It must be pressed in while the snap-ring is removed. Its best you get someone that has done this before. It is a servo cover, looks like a small hockey puck. Replace and fill fluid and drive on.

Whats the Selco on Isuzu Rodeo 2001,transmission fluid leaks only when driving and I read to check Selco. It is often the problem. Where is it?

same as muffler bearings...
why not find where it leaks first.
i guess its and automatic, transmission?
and has 4wd and with a transfer case (it too can leak)
imagine its box. a box has 6 sides.
one cleans it and then drives, and find which side leaks.
only evidence works here, clean, drive , find. location.
the other way, is to use the dye, kit and light.
add dye to oil/lube, then drive, then come home
and use the light (comes with the kit) and find it.
or get the car fixed, this is what they will do..... pay them.

leaks have many causes.
1: bad gaskets. or vents blocked,
2: loose parts.
3: bad o-rings, seals.
4: bad castings, called porosity failures.
5: and more, cracks.? warpage,,,, ext, dampage
even road collision damage . or things you hit in the road.
we can't just guess , any of this, only tell you , the car needs service. and why ask the blind?

I find all my leaks, by , clean,drive ,look repeat.
works every time, but takes hard work.

my wild guess, that is someone told you
in a wild and useless guess, not inspected.
the shift selection shaft seals leaks.

good luck and remember you never told us what drive line is in your car. not one word, all we know is the body shell name. (mostly useless)
nor if in usa, they have rodeo's in Australia too.
some there chock full of HOLDEN parts.

ALL car work, diagnosis , is a hand on deal.
using real mechanics and all that.
Many cars leak oil, and is ignored.
Some are very hard to find,.
may are cause by lack of service.
when you service a car the mechanic's looks over
the whole car (you didn't) and he sees,omg, the trans tail shaft leaks oil. (only it is wet)
so tells you, that it leaks, ATF fluid. (pink ,/red)
and needs a new seal,
then you ask how much is that?,
then he or she says.
if just seal, it's $15+ 1hr labor
if the yoke is damaged, and 1hr, and $100
if the last joker damaged the tail other housing at the seal, the cost is a new housing.
that joker never heard of proper seal puller.

not any of which can be guessed at. ever.
one must take it apart and see what is up.

that is what the mechanical world is like.
unless a new $3000 tranny is in the cards, just for one leak.

the common leaks (means nothing really)
tail shaft seal.
front seal.
pan gasket leaks due to last service, done wrong.
pan drain, if it has one, the seal ring bad. o
(front ,rear, bottom are the common sides.)
and the shift manual selector shaft seal bad.

I cant open my door from the inside of my 01 isuzu rodeo. Opens fine from outside but not the inside.

You need to remove the door trim to expose the inside mechanism that opens the door from the inside, look for a broken cable or a missing link to the inside handle, your problem will be there.

I need the diagram of the transmission of my 2001 isuzu rodeo

Given the age and possible mileage on the unit, you will be money ahead if you order a rebuilt one that has a warranty. There are too many items that need to be inspected and replaced if worn on that transmission. There are seals, bushings, clutches, orings, etc.

I have a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo 4x4 with 3.2 dohc. Transmission is leaking, I brought a oem gasket for the front and back replace the filter. The front pan is still leaking. Try different silicone base gasket...

Yours is leaking from the round side servo cover. A quick fix for someone that knows the correct way to put them in. It is held in by a snap ring and a big spring is underneath it pushing it out. So it must be pressed down to remove and replace the snap ring. A common problem for these vehicles. They will drip on the edge of the pan and make it look like it is leaking.

I have an 2003 Isuzu Rodeo automatic 2wd when ever i take off from a complete stop going in to 2nd gear it sounds like ****, like the transmission is slamming into gear or struggling to. There also is no...

Look at the passenger side of the trans, toward the front. There's a black plug, about 2 or 3 inches in diameter that commonly leaks. They only leak when the truck is in 4th gear so it won't appear to be actively leaking, although if it is there will be fluid all over the bottom of the trans, and will probably be almost coffee brown in color. The part is called an transmission accumulator cover, and is available for relatively cheap. It's not an easy fix, though.

Speedometer/Odometer works only intermittently

You need to replace the speedometer gear. Its on the passenger side of transmission at the rear, not the magnetic sensor on top. That one is for the computer not the speedometer. Unscrew the sensor and unbolt the gear housing to get to it. I worked for an Isuzu dealer and have sold many of these gears. You can go to section 2-25
