    Is it located under the hood? I looked in that area and could not find it however I took my vehicle into a repair shop several months ago and wonder if they did not put the dip stick back after checking the fluid. Would I be able to see the metal tube where the dip stick goes?

    1997 - 20002 do not have dipsticks and you can not check the levels yourself.

    The trooper has no dipstick for trans its a sealed system on the trans pan you will find a fill plug and a drain plug the one on top in recess is the one your looking for with the truck in park running remove fill plug fluid level should be just below that hole you can use ur finger to tell

    Sorry forgot that some of the troopers do not have dip sticks.

How do I check the transmission fluid in a 2000 Isuzu trooper?

A/t or M/t FLUID? ATF or GEAR LUBE (main transmission or the transfer case????????????
auto or stick????????????
we cant guess transmission options
if you have 4wd, it has 2 transmission devices.
main box.
the car is A/t it has no dip stick, you looked and didn't say that in your post ,right>?
so it has unique fill plugs, and special rules.
the 4L30E manufactured by GM.
the old car book shows DEXRON III
mark 3 is no longer made or legal to make, its been decertified.
that means run DEX VI Dexron 6
DEX 6 is downward compatible (and many times better)
it runs hotter with no damage to it . see?
but Dexron is never upward compatible ever. dex3 in new cars never...!!!!
and DEX1 is whale oil so forget that.

easy peasy japaneezy, right.?

if you learn to google you can find out facts like this.
lost operators guide.
or cant find a FSM for 2000 trooper?

they made all this harder so typ, owers will leave to the mech to do this right, many owners burn up transmissions!!!
by overfilling or using wrong AFT or both. vast causes.
ATF means automatic transmission fluid.. if you wonder.

on newer cars the oprators guide, will show
Nothing for transmission service, (like all older cars had)
or will just say get car service, by a professional for all transmission checks.
If really curious, all this is covered in all cars made in the big book, called a FSM ,(SM) factory service manual.
it's all there, read it.
or go to, mitchels or chiltons on line. and read the (near) FSM on line.
same answer for all cars made, read the FSM
then ask questions.
if you need the quoted book, steps the link above has it.... from a poster, hope he posted the right pages, and for right car.
using rumor to fix cars is HIGH RISK.
best best is to read the real OE book from ISUZU.
ever price a new transmission..... ???

on even newer cars the level is set using
a scan tool that can read transmission temperatures. (good luck doing that... on your next car)

let me now explain correct. per the trans makers.
correct why:
they want the pan dropped, and filter new.
they want all that ccrraapp in the bottom of the pan removed, for sure.. and off all magnets there.
the want the right fluid there, not a mix of gawd knows what or some walfart trans additive magic snake oil; melting all the seals and o-rings inside.
they want the newest DEX in there, all DEX6 NOW.
and filled to the correct level hot, never under-filled or over filled.
deleting this dip stick, forces most owners to get it done by a pro, and longer life and no warranty work at vast cost to makers.
that is how the story goes, it's no secret.
this car is and early adopter of this method and I'm sure GM had a hand in this...100%

How do i find the transmission fluid dip stick on a 2001 honda passport?

There is no dipstick. The engine and transmission was designed by Isuzu up till 2002, and the automatic transmission was a sealed, no-maint. transmission. You will either need to purchase the special tools needed, or...........that's right, go to a transmission shop!!!

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.

2001 4WD Automatic 6 Cyl transmission problems

The transmission in your vehicle is a 4L30E model,manufactured by General Motors,and used in vehicles from BMW's to Cadillacs,Isuzu's and Honda's.The transmission is BASED on the old Chevette Turbo Hydramatic 180 model.The 4L30E is basically a TH180 with an overdrive unit added on.I rebuild transmissions for a living,and have seen the 4L30E over and over with the same failures,inherent weaknesses,and every transmission model has them,just in different areas.The 4L30E failures are nothing new,so don't despair.Hopefully the trans currently in your truck will be problem free.
