Question about 1997 Isuzu Rodeo
To replace the oil on your transmission is not that hard but as a auto technician I should advice you that if on any vehicle the transmission oil has never been changed and is a high millage vehicle by changing the oil the transmission can slip or go neutral you should take your vehicle to a transmission shop and have the oil changed there with special oil changing machine that would clean the transmission and converter while it replaces the old oil and if there's a risk on damaging the transmission then they will tell you before changing the oil on your transmission and if they change the oil and any problems should happen then they are responsible for your transmission but if you insist to change it your self by removing the oil pan on the transmission you let all the oil out some of these Japanese vehicles have a drain plug you can take the brain plug out then remove the oil pan once you remove the oil pan then you'll see the transmission filter with socket wrench using a 10 mm socket remove the filter and the same way replace it with the new filter don't over tork the screws tighten to 15 lb. then remove the old oil pan gasket and make sure by doing all this process everything is extra clean, clean out oil pan and replace gasket and install oil pan then after you finish pour in 3 qt. of good quality transmission oil then turn on engine and take the shifter to R then D and last N and with engine on check the level and add as needed good luck

If you know how to disconnect the transmission to the car. Then you just have to look for the drain plug , which is located under the oil pan.Now as a mechanic this is how to disconnect the transmission. The transmission is connected to the engine , if you disconnect it to the engine . First you have to loose the bolts that connect the transmission to the engine .from there you will see a clutch disc,disc plate.After this disconnect the transmission to differential , after disconnecting it to the differential .Then find a table that is strong to hold the transmission then .Make sure that the drain plug will not be blocked so that you can drain it easy . make sure that the transmission stand the way it is when its been placed to the car . So that it will be easy to drain ,now the drain plug is located under the oil pan .To open twist the drain plug counter clockwise to open .But before draining make sure the oil which is inside the transmission will spill on an other or extra oil pan so that it will not go to the floor . And will make the floor slippery .Then clean first the transmission by lubricating it with gas or a lubricating oil to clean the transmission .After that place back the drain plug twist it again but this time clock wise .then look for the cup which is placed on the side or on the top of the transmission .Open it then place the new transmission oil, then place back the transmission to the car. Place back the clutch disc and the disc plate to the transmission. Then connect the transmission to the engine by means of the bolts and differential also.But if you don't have time to do it , then find the best car mechanic . You will see this is what they mostly do.But if you can do it that some body will help you to assist you to change oil then you can save hundreds of money .
