Nothing too serious here. Make sure you have the transmission pan securely bolted back up. Make sure & cross tighten the bolts. You refill by removing the transmission dipstick and inserting a small necked funnel into the dipstick tube. Be careful not to overfill. As it will say on the dipstick, " check fluid level while in Park and idling"

How do we check the transmission fluid in our Isuzu Rodeo?


Best time to check your transmission fluid is....let it sit over night so it has time to cool down. In the morning start it up...Let it run for about 6 or 7....To warm up transmission fluid temp.
your transmission fluid temp should be about 100 to 125. you have to craw under your rodeo to your transmission plug...not your drain plug.....Take your plug out, If fluid drips, More then likely you don't need fluid....but use your fluid tube to add a little in...If it start to run back out, Your fluid level is good.

How to check tranny fluid in a 03 Saturn vue 4 cylinder 2.2 liter


if you cannot find a dip stick near the engine or the transmission then it will not be an open system. transmission dip sticks are coloured red/yellow and have trn on the handle. If it is a closed system then there is no way of checking unless there is a oil change done in which case the pan is removed and refitted and the correct amount of fluid is sucked back into the transmission.

How to check fluid level transmision


If it is an automatic transmission, you have to check it underneath the car at the transmission pan. There are two transmission pan on this car, it's the bigger pan. With engine and trans in normal operating temperature, and car on level ground, take off the transmission oil level plug (it's the bolt that is higher up on the pan). I thinks it uses a 17mm socket to remove it. Both the 'fill' bolt and 'drain' bolt looks similar. Double check to be sure. Remove the higher bolt and if alittle bit of fluid comes out, it is at the normal range. If nothing comes out, you need to add some more fluid... I think it is just dextron II fluid. Now to fill it..... You will need a pump... There are many types sizes and shapes, just go to the local auto supply shop and you can pick one up. Use your best judgement. Now with the pump, one end goes into the fill hole and the other end into the fluid. Pump till fluid flows out of the fill hole... Then screw the bolt back in hole.. It's messy, time consuming and confusing... I would suggest bringing it to a autoshop. By the time you get all the supplies, its probably cheaper to go to an autoshop

Need to add tranny fluid to '99 Rodeo, but where??


CAUTION: DO NOT OVERFILL.
Overfilling will cause foaming, loss of fluid, abnormal shifting and possible damage to the transmission.
1. Park the vehicle on level ground and apply the parking brake firmly.
2. Check fluid level with engine running at idle.
NOTE: Be sure that transmission fluid temperature is below 30degrees C (86degreesF).
3. Move the selector lever through all gear ranges.
4. Move the selector lever to “Park”.
5. Let engine idle for 3 minutes and open the overfill screw (1).
6. Add released transmission fluid until it flows out over the overfill screw opening.
7. Let engine idle until a fluid temperature between 32C (90F) and 57C (135F) is reached, then close the overfill screw (1).
Torque: 38 Nm (3.9 kg·m/28 lb ft)
NOTE: To prevent fluid leaks, the overfill screw and oil drain screws gasket must be replaced each time these screws are removed.

CAUTION: Do not open overfill screw with engine stopped.
CAUTION: DO NOT CHECK FLUID LEVEL UNDER THESE CONDITIONS:
 Immediately after driving at sustained highway speeds.
 In heavy city traffic during hot weather.
 If vehicle is towing a trailer.
If the vehicle has been operated under these conditions, shut the engine off and allow the vehicle to “cool” for thirty (30) minutes. After the cool down period, restart the vehicle and continue from step 2 above.

How do i put transmission fluid in a 1996 isuzu rodeo? where is it located?


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!

No transmission dipstick 2003 mercury mountaineer


I have recently changed and added fluid to my 2003 Mercury Mountaineer with help from a Chilton manual. None of the answers posted so far are quite correct...and since I researched this for months before finding a proper solution I figured I would let everyone know how to do this.

Tools needed: Mercon V trans fluid, torx head socket to remove trans drain/add plug, an adjustable wrench to loosen the main bolt on the drain/add plug, a pump to add fluid back in, and (if possible) a temp gun like a service station would use. Last, but not least, you will need a special nozel that fits in the bottom of the drain hole to add fluid back in with. (I could only find this at OReilly's. It was a special order from 'OTC' <OTC Part No. 6604>

In my opinion this is a terribly designed transmission. To add, remove, or check fluid follow these steps:

1. Heat fluid to 180 degrees F.
2. Raise entire vehicle using a level to make sure the vehicle is completely level.
3. With foot on break, shift through all gears, place back in park.
4. Go under transmission pan, and by using torx head socket (and PB blaster or you'll break the socket), Loosen the middle plug on the main trans drain plug. (There is a larger bolt head on the drain plug with a smaller plug inside it)
5. Replace center plug with OTC part No 6604.
6. Loosen, (but not all the way) the main bolt plug.
7. Now, this will tell you your fluid level. (Per Chiltons manual: If fluid pours out your trans is overfilled. If fluid drips out the level is ok. If no fluid comes out, add and repeat until you get a slow drip, indicating the proper level.
7B. If you need to add fluid, at this point you would use the pump. They make plunger pumps for differentials that are supposed to work well, but I used a simple $3.99 bulb pump just fine.
8. When level is correct, tighten main bolt.
9. Remove OTC No. 6604
10. Replace center plug with torx head socket.

That sounds complicated but it's not bad once you have what you need. The BIG problem is that this IS a sealed trans. Ok for BMWs...not so good on a Ford products! SO, if your fluid level begins to become inconsistent be vigilant. Because there is likely an underlying problem causing this.

Temp Gun Note: The temp gun is to make sure your fluid is at 180 degrees. However, Chilton reports that this is about where it would be after driving around the block a couple times. Since I'm not a pro, and don't have one, I did the latter and it worked fine.

HOPE THIS HELPS!!! This was tough for me to research, but my Mountaineer runs fine (relatively speaking :) and I know very little about fixing cars. Just researched it till I found the correct fix.

Peace, and good luck!
