The holding tank for the transmission fluid is on the right by the brake fluid. There is no dipstick.

    Sorry buddy, i was looking for Axiom myself when i saw yours. just noticed you have a trooper not an axiom



You can't check the transmission fluid on this vehicle. It's got to be done by the dealership.

Where to check tranny fluid, cant find dipstick??

1999 Isuzu Troopers w/automatic transmissions do not come with a dipstick. It is a sealed transmission just like a manual transmission. The fluid must be checked by removing the fill plug. Emergency brake on, engine running,warmed up ,vehicle in neutral. When removing the fill plug ,which is on the side of transmission- at the top, fluid should slightly drip out. If fluid doesnt drip out you need to add fluid. You will need a small hand pump to fill it.

How do i check/add transmission fluid in my 1991 trooper II?

Similar to the oil dipstick, there is another in the back of the engine, it is coming from the transmission. Usually there handle is painted RED, but that can vary...

Once you locate this, you'll want to have the engine running for about 15 minutes in order to get a correct reading at the reccomended operating temperature,

Remove the Transmission dipstick from the tube and wipe it off with a cloth, paper towel, etc...
Reinsert it in the tube and seat it before removing it again and veryify the level is in the correct range... (Usually noted on the dipstick.)

Not all, but most vehicle manufacturers reccomend checking this while the vehicle is in neutral, so be sure to have the parking brake on and be careful with any loose clothing or shirt sleeves as you dont want to get caught up in a rotating fan...

The tube in which you find the Transmission dipstick, is also the location you will need to add any new fluid through... You'll need a transmission fluid funnel... If you dont know which is which, simply ask to verify this at the part store...

BTW, You could simply drive to a part store such as Napa, Oreillys, Autozone, Shucks, or whatever is available in your neighborhood and ask someone there to help you locate it... as well as the correct fluid...

Hopefully you will find something of use in this.

Good Luck and Happy Motoring...

Another question on a 2000 Isuzu Trooper-re/ transmission fluid. To either add or change the fluid, Is this something I HAVE to take to an Isuzu dealer to do??

Adding fluid is easy, you only need a long, clean funnel to insert into the dipstick tube. You check it when the engine has been warmed up and the car has been driven a few miles, check it on a level surface, engine running. Changing is a little more involved, and can be messy-you remove the pan, bolt by bolt, working around the bottom until it starts to drip, then pour fron the trans. It is a lot of fluid (about 6 quarts) so you need a large and wide drain pan to catch the trans fluid and rags to mop up what misses the pan. Remove the pan, and pull down the filter, it is just press fitted into the valve body. Use a lintless rag to clean up the bottom of the valve body, then install a new filter. You normally do not have to install a new pan gasket, but the kit you get with the filter will include one-if your gasket looks at all like it is compromised, replace it. After it is all buttoned up, you fill it with fluid through the dipstick, and if I removed 6 quarts, I add 4, start it up, then add in increments of 1/2 quart until it is within the hatch marks on the dipstick. It is not a difficult job, but it is messy and time consuming.

Where is the dipsick for transmission fluid located?

Hi, I don't believe you have a dip stick on that truck, the check/fill plug is underneath on the transmission pan, the bottom plug would be for draining and the upper one for checking and filling, check only with engine running on level ground, parking brake on, with fluid warm, not real hot, move shift lever through all gears then back to park, idle about 3 min. and remove plug use little finger to check ,it should be up to the bottom of plug hole, if needed add recommended fluid in plug hole with a simple pump or squeeze bottle. Fluid should be a reddish color with no burnt smell! Have a pan and rags ready!

How can i put transmission oil in a izuzu trooper

At transmission pan, there will be two drain plugs, the up most drain plug is where you fill it and check level, to check level, with engine running and in park, unscrew up most plug on transmission pan, if fluid come's out, level is good, if no fluid come's out need to add transmission fluid in that drain plug.

I do not have the owner's manual and need to know how to fill the ATF resorvoir.

ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid) is added to the transmission through the dipstick tube. First make sure that you are checking the fluid level correctly:

Start the engine and let the engine warm up for a minute or two.
Then pull the dipstick from the ATF dipstick tube and wipe it clean; reinsert it back into the tube, paying close attention that you are inserting it all the way down until the tube is sealed again.
Then remove the dipstick and check the level of fluid on the dipstick, with attention to the fluid level markings on the dipstick.
Do this several different times to make sure you are getting accurate readings, as some transmissions make it difficult to REMOVE fluid, in case of overfilling.
If you DO add any, add just a little at a time, and permit time for the fluid to settle, so you can get accurate readings of the dipstick fluid level.
Constantly recheck to make sure you do not overfill your transmission.

Hope this helps.

Cannot find the transmission fluid port to add fluid.

Hi Clark,

The Transmission Fluid goes in the tube that houses the transmission fluid level dipstick.

I know, looking at the tube, it sounds insane. A long narrow funnel made specifically for this purpose is sold at auto parts stores.

Dont know the location for the auto transmission ckeck/fill dipst

Unfortunatly you cannot check the transmission, or add fluid yourself. You have to take it to a dealer, or a transmission specialist. That's not strictly true. The Trooper uses a GM "closed" transmission system. Its possible to do it yourself, but a real pain and requires some kind of pump system to pump in the fluid from below the vehicle. There are 2 filling bolts on the transmission pan, the lower one is the drain, the higher one towards the pan corner is the fill/level plug. You must remove the fill plug and pump fluid into it until it starts to run back out. Run the engine to distribute and warm the fluid, then check the level again, topping up if necessary. Replace the plug using new seal.

Please don't forget to rate!
