Question about 1998 Isuzu Rodeo

1 Answer

I need a diagram on where to fill the clutch fluid on my 1998 Isuzu Rodeo. It is a manual transmission. Also, do you put clutch and transmission fluid in different places?

I'm having a hard time shifting in my 1998 Isuzu Rodeo. It's a manual transmission. This started to happen almost immediately. It wasn't a progressive thing. I bought clutch fluid and can't seem to find where to put it. I also was wondering if clutch and transmission fluid are installed in the same place?

Clutch and tranny fluid does not go in the same place whatever you do don't mix them as for where to fill the clutch fluid, believe it or not some of the clutch share a resovoir with the brakes but others have a smaller resovoir right next to the break master cylinder, but that's only if you have a hydraulic clutch some where actually cable so it wouldn't take hydraulic fluid at all.. I hope this helps

SOURCE: how to fill transmission fluid 1999 isuzu rodeo ls

Lee2fixit doesn't know what he talks about on 99 Rodeos.

There is no dipstick tube - there are two access holes on the side of the transmission. The bottom one is to drain it out. The top one is to fill it back up. It is full when the fluid comes up to the bottom of the top hole.

Or you can take it to a dealer or service center to have it done.

under the truck you will see the large trans fluid pan. there are two 3/4 inch bolts. one recessed about 2 inches and one flush with the bottom of the pan.  The recessed one is the fill tube and the non recessed one is the drain.  You will need a pump of some sort to pump the fluid in the fill tube until it starts draining out.  I think if you start the truck the fluid will lower and you can put more fluid in until it drains again.  I dont know yet what kind of fluid to use.

SOURCE: transmission fluid level

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.

Hello smeet3992: The transmission uses 5w-30 for tempretures up to 95 degreese in tempreture. Uses 15w-40 for all tempretures greater then 50 degreese. If you are in an area that has extreme fluctuation in tempretures I would use the 15w-4o engine oil. I also senrt a picture of where to check the oil at. Make sure you pull the right plug. The reverse idler pin has the same size bolt head.

SOURCE: can't find location of the transmission fluid dip stick ...

It has to be checked by the service center by raising the vehicle and removing the bolts as in replacing the transmission fluid. This was on the 97-99's. They have gone back to dipsticks but unfortunately we are stuck with the service center.

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 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.

I have a 1999 isuzu rodeo and it has a sealed transmission, and it needs to be filled, are there any diagrams or help to fill this?


Hi,
If your transmission is automatic, you could use a funnel that could fit in the dipstick tube. You could fill an appropriate ammount of fluid in the dipstick via that funnel.
If ur transmission is manual, you have to use a lifter and you could fill it in the transmission inlet by removing the inlet bolt on the side.
Hope that solves your problem!

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.

It has to be pumped in from the bottom. If you see the bottom of the pan you will see a drain plug and a fill plug that is higher up. The truck must be running and at operating temperature.

How to check transmission fluid on 2001 isuzu rodeo


There is no dipstick on your auto trans. Checking it is a real PITA The trans pan has 2 plugs in it. The one on the very bottom is the drain. The one in the corner, up higher in a recess is the check/fill plug. To check, the engine must be warm and running, tranny in P. Remove the plug and fluid should dribble out. If it doesn't it's low, fill until it dribbles out, while engine is running. Obviously the truck must be on a lift or up on jackstands.
