Question about 2000 Isuzu Rodeo
You do not check it when its hot ! There are two bolts on the drivers side of the transmission. The one on the top is for filling and the below is for checking your fluid level or emptying. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE PARKING BRAKE FIRMLY IN PLACE WHILE DOING THIS. Only use dexron3 transmission fluid if you need transmission fluid. It is recommend not to mess with the transmission yourself since it is a sealed transmission. The dealership is supposed to do this.

You don't have a dip stick. You check it by pulling the top plug out on the transmission pan. If it dribbles out it's full. I'm not sure if you check it hot
and running. i think so but call the dealer and ask for the service department to make sure.

Drive the car for several miles or until the engine has reached its normal temperature, as indicated by the temperature gauge. Position the vehicle on a flat surface, shift the transmission to the "Park" position and apply the parking brake.Raise the hood and allow the vehicle to idle.
Withdraw the transmission's dipstick. The dipstick features a T-shaped handle with the words "Trans. Fluid" stamped into the top of the handle.Wipe the dipstick clean of any transmission fluid with a clean shop rag. As the vehicle is driven, transmission fluid may splash onto the dipstick, resulting in a false fluid level reading.Insert the dipstick into its tube until the handle rests securely against the top of the tube, then withdraw the dipstick and note the fluid level. The fluid level should be at or just below the "Warm Full" mark stamped into the dipstick. If the level is low, fluid must be added.Add Mercon V transmission fluid in small increments to avoid overfilling the transmission. Insert a funnel into the top of the dipstick tube, then pour the transmission fluid into the funnel, periodically checking the fluid level on the dipstick.

Pull out the dipstick.
With the gearshift in Neutral or Park and the parking brake on, let your engine run. Be sure the engine is warm when you pull out the dipstick. (Don't turn off the engine.)
Check the fluid.
Dip the tip of your index finger into the fluid on the dipstick and rub the fluid between your finger and the tip of your thumb. The transmission fluid on the dipstick should be pinkish and almost clear. If it looks or smells burnt or has particles in it, have a mechanic drain and change the fluid.
Wipe the dipstick with a clean, lint-free rag; then reinsert it and pull it out again.
If the transmission fluid is clear but doesn't reach the "Full" line on the dipstick, use a funnel to pour just enough transmission fluid down the dipstick tube to reach the line. Don't overfill!
