Question about Isuzu Trooper
You have a 10 year old car that has been driven an average of 3,600 miles per year. It has been doing allot of sitting around which may have cased the seals to harden. This is a more than likely a minor problem. Crawl under the vehicle and tighten all the transmission pan bolts snugly. Do not over-tighten them. Wipe all the fluid off the bottom of the transmission so you can see later on where the leak is coming from if it reappears if you cannot already tell. It is going to be a leak at the pan gasket or the front or rear seals. If it is a front or rear seal leaking, there are products to help stop a minor leak. Trans-X is as good at stopping leaks as any product and is what I would recommend you use if you see it is a seal leaking. You can get it at almost any auto parts store. Follow the directions on the can. If that does not stop the leak you will have to live with it or have the seals replace by a professional. Be sure and check the fluid level and add the correct fluid as listed in your owner's manual. Do not over-fill. Keep the transmission above the add mark at all times.
