The transmission is bolted to the engine and if you drained fluid from a single drain plug, you probably drained the engine oil out, especially if it was black.

The transmission fluid, if Dexron II or equivalent, is red in color.

Check the fluid level of your engine to see if you drained the engine oil by mistake.

Usually, transmissions have several everal bolts that hold the drain pan and filter on.

Good luck, to you.

Where do i check transmission fluid for 1989 isuzu pickup and how do I drain and refill fluid?

Hi, Generally, the transmission dip-stick is located in the rear of the engine compartment by the firewall. Unfortunaltely, the only way to drain old transmission fluid out is to remove the transmission pan on the bottom of the thrans itself. Be careful because it is a very messy job. Good Luck!
