Question about 1998 Isuzu Rodeo

1 Answer

I believe that I have a transmission leak and I am low on fluid but I have no idea how to put it in. Also I used to have an isuzu trooper that took 5W 30 oil instead of transmission fluid is that the case here?

Probably not the case on the oil. If you're not certain about the oil, I would call a dealership to find out. Most vehicles use Dextron/Mercon and you have to use a funnel and put it in through the dipstick tube. Hope this helps

2001 Isuzu Trooper 4wd automatic trans. It will shift ou of 1st at about 20 mph into 2nd then loses power, rpm's drop until it slows to about 10mph then down shifts back to 1st. Any ideas why?


Sounds to me that your transmission is put itself into what is call (Limp Mode). This happens when the transmission fluid in the trans hydraulic valve body located on the bottom and in the trans pan are not within the parameters of the transmission computer. You can remove the trans pan and gasket to check for metallic material in the bottom of the pan. There is normally a strong magnet in the pan catch the material so I can't move freely through the transmission itself. It only takes a very small piece of foreign material to stop the flow of the valve body fluid. I would first take it to somewhere that had a automotive diagnostic scan tool that can read transmission codes to see if there are any active codes. Next you can drop the transmission pan yourself and look for material in it. Basically do a visually inspection and service the transmission fluid, gasket, and filter. Remember, all a automatic transmission is a extremely complicated fluid pump. If its pumping trans fluid properly it's probably working just fine. Been when the trans fluid gets hot, scorched, and stops moving. It will not work. Hope this helps

Transmission leak Isuzu Trooper


Tighten then in an X pattern working outward to about 12 foot pounds. Do not over-tighten, use a rubber/cork composite gasket if available.

I NEED PUT TRANSMISSION OIL I HAVA 1995 ISUZO TROOPER AUTOMATIC I DONT FIND THE LOCATION WHERE I CAN PUT SOMETING IOL PLEASE CAN YOU TELL ME


there is a plug in the pan, with engine running , fluid should barely come out, if not, its low and you will need to "pump" it in, a repair shop may be best to check the fluid level.

Leak from transmission hose


I'm assuming your talking trans fluid is leaking out a vacuum hose. If this is the case the modulator it plugs into is leaking. Replace the modulator. if this is not what your talking about then more info is needed.

Check light on dash panel under the torque on demand diagram and where do i add transmission fluid


I have the same problem with my '98 Trooper - the TOD light, that is. Took it to a good shop for diagnosis. They said the TOD sensor was bad and it would cost abot $480 for the part. We were looking at a hefty bill, so decided to do without TOD for now. Manual 4WD still works fine. They said that Isuzu's arrogance that the transmission wouln't leak leaves us with a tiny 1/4" check port to fill through. We got concerned enough, and had over 180,000 miles, that we took it to a transmission shop and had it flushed and refilled correctly. To be honest, we now have 230,000 miles and don't really see any ATF leaks.

The transmission filter is located inside the transmission pan. Should take you around an hour or so to drain and drop pan replace filter and replace pan. Thanks for using FixYa!

Where do you add transmission fluid


i believe your trooper is like my isuzu rodeo which have a sealed transmission which could be checked by yourself by srewing off the bolt on the top of the tranny, or take it to a transmission place and they will charge you about $140 to replace the fluids on it

There was a problem on the late 80s - early 90s Trooper transmissions that whenever the system electrical voltage in the car drops below 14.0v the transmission goes into what automotiveforums.com has dubbed "limp mode" which is what you all are familiar with. (yes, I'm familiar with it too, it's my indicator of when I need to stick my battery on my charger)
Go buy a battery charger and charge your battery for a few hours at the appropriate setting when this occurs, you'll find that the problem will go away for a while (or until you use ALOT of electricity again)
You'll also find that it worsens during the winter and at night (when your headlamps and/or heater are on)

I hope this enlightens the situation for you all. Took me 4 years to find this answer.
