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!

How do add or change the transmission fluid in 1997 isuzu rodeo ?

Locate the transmission resovioure, put a pan under it, uncap the bottom first, then the top. Let fluid drain. You can flush with running water from a hose or a gallon jug filled with water. Then flush with a new bottle of fluid by just putting it in there and letting it drain. Then cap the bottom, pour in the new Bottle of fluid and cap it off. You're done.

I cannot find where to put the transmission fluid in my 1999 Isuzu Rodeo. There is not an area on top to put more fluid, let alone check the fluid.

I have a 1995 rodeo with an automatic. the fluid level is measured on the dipstick, which is next to the oil dip stick on the v-6 anyway. you add fluid by removing a plug unedr the vehicle mounted up near the center of the transmission.

Transmission fluid

There is no dip stick. there are a upper and lower bolt on the trany you take the top bolt out if the fluid is up to the top it is full. The manual says all checks and service should be done by a shop. hope it helps
