It sounds like a transmission with injection. You may have a stopped up line.

No forward engagement in drive position


If engine revs go high and no forward movement you most likely need a new transmission

I have 2002 Isuzu trooper 4X4, on a dashboard 2 lights are on, Engine Check and CHECK TRANS blinking every 2 seconds. Car itself operates very well, shifts gears etc. when I drive around town it works...


Have you checked for Diagnostic Fault Codes yet? Have your local auto parts store check for codes if you don't have access to a code reader. New Bluetooth OBD readers (ELM327) that pairs with your smartphone or laptop and a free app. (Called "Torque") Great reader for under $20 in most cases. Start there first. Is there a Temp Gauge for coolant? If so.......what is the operating temp doing during those highway trips? If the coolant is overheating, it may be heating the transmission too.
1. Check for codes.
2. Have cooling system checked, cleaned, flushed, and new coolant installed.

I can't locate where to fill the transmission fluid. Any tips?


Remove the transmission dipstick and add fluid in the tube. Use a funnel and add small amounts at a time with the engine at operating temperature. Re-insert the dipstick after adding each small amount to check the level. DO NOT OVERFILL.

My 2004 pontiac montanas tranny slipes occasinally when taking off from a stop light.


the cause of this is either low fluid in the trans or a leaking internal seal in the trans, this causes a loss of hydraulic pressure and then the resaulting slippage

Can't locate fluid eservoir to add trans fluid


Here how to do it: If you see no signs of leaking from the transmission then the level is probably not low, take it to a transmission shop, transmission repair on this car is not for the DYI.

Ensure that the transaxle case temperature is 70° to 90° F (21° to 32° C). With the engine running, shift transmission through all gears. With engine idling in PARK, remove the check plug from the transmission. If transmission has been overfilled, allow fluid to drain out. If no fluid drains out, add fluid through the TRANS FLUID fill cap under the hood on the driver side in 1 pint (0.5 liter) increments until it slightly flows from the check plug. Reinstall the check plug.

Transmission Component Slipping (TCC Stuck off)


code p 1870 refers to transmission component slipping
That can be from dirty oil or a clutch pack or band slipping or low oil pump pressure in the transmission
you say that it occurs on highway driving after 2 hours and that slipping will add friction heat to the transmission oil bringing on the oil temp light
take it to an accredited transmission professional service center that works on your make of vehicle , have the oil changed which require the pan removal
at the same time that will allow the adjustments to be done
when reassembled and refilled , have a pump pressure test done

Transmission


The trans is directly behind the engine, there is no place to add fluid, the trans is a factory sealed unit, crazy but true.

Gear fluid


Most automatic transmissions do not have a filler plug or cap. The transmission fluid is added by using a long-neck funnel, which is placed in the tube the dipstick for the transmission sits in. Be sure to test the level while the engine is running, with the transmission in either park or neutral. Be very careful not to over fill the transmission, and make sure that you have the right kind of transmission fluid for your vehicle.
