1997 Isuzu Rodeo- What tool/pump is needed to add trans fluid

1997 Isuzu Rodeo- What tool/pump is needed to add transmission fluid through the "fill" plug in the transmission? The transmission was slipping, replaced a leaking line, now it only slips around sharp curves/turns, or accelerating from a stop on uphill slope. Any suggestions of tools or other things to check is appreciated!

    It's a V6 3.2....the fill plug is on the side of the transmission, we tried a funnel- mostly just ran to the floor, but it's not full....thought there might be a special tool to make it easier.....

What size engine?

Usually you just fill with a funnel, unless it is at an awkward position.

    Yes, use a funnel with a flexible plastic or rubber tube jammed on the end. Get the tubing from your local auto parts store that will fit your funnel.

Need to locate auto trans dip stick tube to add fluid,for a 1995 isuzu trooper v6


I'm pretty sure that year does not have a dipstick or dipstick tube. Instead there will be two drain plugs on the transmission pan. One is the drain plug and the one more to the rear and to the side (i'm going off memory here so I might be wrong) if the fill plug. The engine will need to be running when you remove the fill plug. I will warn you that it is common for the nut for the fill plug to break loose inside of the drain pain making it impossible to remove. The fix for this is to replace the pan. If you get the plug out you will need to use a pump to add fluid to the trans until fluid starts to come out of the fill hole. When the fluid is done draining back out the trans fluid is full and the level plug can be reinstalled. Have a drain pan under the trans before you start removing the fill plug to catch any fluid that may come out or any fluid that comes out after you fill the trans. If you have any questions i'll be happy to answer them.

Where do i put transmission fluid in a 2002 Isuzu rodeo


As far as I have found the 02 Isuzu Rodeo does not have a transmission fluid dipstick you have to in fact go under your vehicle to check, change and fill your transmission fluid. Transmission fluid level: You will have two plugs facing downward on the larger trans pan. The plug higher up on the pan is the fill/level check (stamped/recessed into the rear right corner of pan). ATF should just dribble from this plug on a hot, idling truck, in neutral on a level surface. The lower one is the drain. The one at the back of the pan in a recess is the filler. You need a hand pump or something similar to fill it to overflowing then top it off with the engine running. Make sure you shift through the gears a couple of times when topping off.

Fill tube for the transmission location


Hahaha..! Thats a funny response, but not a solution.

Assuming you're talking about the automatic transmission, there is no fill tube for your transmission. To fill the transmission, check the fluid level, or top off the fluid level, you will need a few different (non-traditional) tools. You will need some way to pump fluid up into the transmission from below due to the fill port being on the bottom of the transmission fluid pan. A bottle of transmission fluid (Dextron III) and a screw on fill tube from WalMart or Autozone can be used to fill the transmission with fluid.

Service to this transmission can be a fairly messy task. Operating temperature must be attained prior to fluid level adjustment. Once operating temperature has been achieved, two drain plugs should be located on the main transmission fluid pan. One plug is positioned vertically higher than the other. With the engine idling, remove the higher plug. When this plug is removed, fluid shouldn't flow from the hole profusely. If it does, then that's an idication that the unit is overfilled. If no fluid flows from the hole at all, then it may be an indication of a low fluid level. Use the desired devised method to pump fluid into the higher plug hole until fluid begins to leak from the plug hole. Once this occurs, then the plug must quickly be reinstalled.

It's messy and inconvenient; I know. Thank you to the General for the transmission and adventures with hot trans. fluid. Gee.., another good example of why Toyota passed ya up

Can't find the oil or transmission dipstick on my '99 rodeo.


The oil dipstick is on the driver's side of the engine. Look a little low. There is no transmission dipstick. There is a plug on the transmission pan that has to be removed while the engine is running to check the fluid level. A special tool is needed to add fluid to the transmission.

2001 Isuzu Rodeo transmission


under the truck you will see the large trans fluid pan. there are two 3/4 inch bolts. one recessed about 2 inches and one flush with the bottom of the pan.  The recessed one is the fill tube and the non recessed one is the drain.  You will need a pump of some sort to pump the fluid in the fill tube until it starts draining out.  I think if you start the truck the fluid will lower and you can put more fluid in until it drains again.  I dont know yet what kind of fluid to use.

How to check transmission fluid on 2001 isuzu rodeo


There is no dipstick on your auto trans. Checking it is a real PITA The trans pan has 2 plugs in it. The one on the very bottom is the drain. The one in the corner, up higher in a recess is the check/fill plug. To check, the engine must be warm and running, tranny in P. Remove the plug and fluid should dribble out. If it doesn't it's low, fill until it dribbles out, while engine is running. Obviously the truck must be on a lift or up on jackstands.

Is there another tool besides a hand pump that we can use to put transmission fluid in the fill plug?


use an old school oilcan...the type you fill with oil of your choice, and has a finger pump action (like a squirt bottle). you should be able to pick one up with a flexible spout at any reputable auto parts suppliers.
