I have a 1998 Isuzu Rodeo however when I purchased the vehicle I managed to obtain a service manual on mine.
Mine is a V-6 3.2liter engine with automatic transmission and it took me a while to find out where I added transmission fluid at too.

It is located under the vehicle on the Passenger side of the vehicle and it is located on the transmission just before the transfer case. There is like a eye beam across one side to another then there is like a Indent the lower one is for drain and the upper one with a larger bolt like plug is the fill hole. I used a turkey baster with a large bulb like affair to **** the transmission fluid in to it from the bottle then I inserted the baster up and into the hole vacated by the plug. Then squeezed the fluid into the transmission and kept at it till the fluid dripped out on its own. I hurried and inserted the plug into the hole and screwed into it and tightened it up and lowered the vehicle down checked after the vehicle had been warmed up and re jacked the vehicle up and rechecked and all I needed was a small squirt into it and it was full and since then it has been running really well since.

I believe you have a sealed trans. There is small window on the trans to check level. Not real useful though.

ill read you the official service bull. TSB

4L30E/4L60E Transmission Fluid 2003 publ.

The correct fluid to use in all Isuzu vehicles equipped with the 4L30E or 4L60E automatic
transmissions is DEXRON®-III with a G-License Number (G-34318), Isuzu part number: 2-
90531-815-0 or equivalent (see figure 1).
When checking for correct fluid level, follow the procedures in the appropriate Workshop
Manual.
NOTE: Incorrect fluid or incorrect fluid level may cause shift complaints and/or transmission
damage.

that means use DEXRON VI now. DEX 6. what is seen on the shell NOW, 2016.
dex 3 is obsolete.


holds 18 pints, dry, fill
way less, simply drain in place. 6 pints falls out
if levels is ok now.
what you do measure what came out, drained and put back that exact amount.

How much transmission fluid do you need to fill a 2002 Izuzu Rodeo


in the absence of car manual, fill initially with one liter/qrt of transmission fluid. check for leaks and start engine. with transmission in park, slowly add transmission fluid with engine at idle. constantly monitor transmission fluid level with vehicle on level position until fluid level in "cold", then drive vehicle approximately for one mile until fluid is warmed up or hot. recheck fluid level with engine idling and on park. Add if necessary until fluid level in Hot position in dip stick. then your done. write down how much fluid you added for future reference.

WHERE DO I PUT THE TRANSMISSION FLUID IN MY ISUZU RODEO 1998 4WD V6-3.2L ENG. WHERE IS THE FILLER???


stevenhurc_15.jpg most didnt have dip stick for auto trans, fill through fill plug shown then start and run through gears to circulate oil then remove fill plug while engine is still running and topup until oil just trickles out of filler plug hole. It is a bit of a pain to fill and can get messy depending on what you have available and be careful of the hot exhaust as you fill and top up trans level.

How do you check the transmimission oil fluid on my 1998 isuzu rodeo


If you find no dip stick you need to raise it off the ground preferably on a lift and check the side plug on the transaxle, open it locate the level should be slightly dripping out of the hole when opened, that is full.
If its a standard shift use 80 w gear oil, if its automatic use dextronll transmission fluid.
Have fun.

How do you check the transmission fluid


On a 2000 Rodeo there is no dip stick, you have to warm the rodeo to normal temp then remove the drain plug on the transmission if fluid comes out it is ok if not you have to pump some into it with a oil can or some other pump I have one it sucks !

What kind of transmission fluid do you put in a 1998 Isuzu Rodeo?


hello. I recommend Mobil 1 transmission Fluid. Since you do not have a dip stick on this model, Isuzu recommends that you let the service center do this work but; YES you can do it!! Be careful not to overfill but do as follows to check the fluid. As you don?t have an ATF dipstick, you will have two plugs facing down on the 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 drip from this plug on a hot, idling truck, in neutral on a flat surface. The lower one is the drain. The one at the back of the pan in a recess is the filler. You need a squirt pump or something like one to fill it with the engine running.

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.

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.

Transmission oil


I don't know exactly. I've seen them accessible from right under the hood and I've seen them down just on top of the transmission (very short stick). The best thing for you to know exactly where they are and to fix anything else on your ride is to get a Haynes Repair Manual.
