Question about 2001 Isuzu Rodeo
Under vehicle, passenger side, below seating area, front of fuel tank, mounted on frame in fuel line
Fuel filters and elements are serviced by replacement only. Some vehicle manufacturers recommend fuel filter replacement at 30,000 miles (48,000 km). Always replace the fuel filter at the vehicle manufacturer's recommended mileage.
The fuel filter replacement procedure varies depending on the make and year of the vehicle and the type of fuel system. Always follow the filter replacement procedure in the appropriate service manual. The photo sequence below shows a typical procedure for relieving fuel pressure and removing a fuel filter.

Installing Fuel Filters
In-line fuel filters are installed in the fuel line. In carbureted engines, the in-line gasoline filter is usually installed between the fuel pump and the carburetor. In vehicles with a fuel injection system, the location of the fuel filter is determined by the manufacturer. An arrow on the filter shows the direction of fuel flow.

Passenger side of vehicle. Look under vehicle around the rear door area. Inline filter.
Buy the Haynes or Chiltons. Well worth it for the vehicle. Also hondaautomotiveparts(dot)com can get you decent prices on some items. Isuzu Rodeo and Honda Passport are the same car (made by Isuzu). It atleast has a good breakdown of parts with pictures.

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.

It's located just under the driver side door, and then behind the outermost frame bar. The new one will denote which direction to install it. I recommend grabbing some rubber sheathed hose clamps from the store while you're there.
First locate the bleeder valve on the fuel rail.
It's just underneath the plastic cover on the engine, follow the silver rail that runs across the front and goes back on both sides, it's on the right side, just under the left-side blue refrigerant valve cover. Open the cover (black) and be sure to have a rag under and on top of it as you use a screwdriver to release the pressure on it - just push the pin in the valve. Air will come out, then a little gas, so be ready. Replace the cover.
Open your gas cap. Now the pressure is off of both sides.
Use the clamps to close the lines going into it, in and out. Clamp them about 3 or 4 inches from the filter, to leave yourself room to work.
Remove the bolt on the mounting bracket, it will take a socket to get it, as salt and other road juices will have rusted it pretty well since the last time it was changed. Please don't try to use an adjustable wrench, unless you really want to punch the underside of your car.
Factory hose clamps, self explanatory. Vice grips are good for this.
Use the vice grips to gently wrench the hose from the filter. This will take some work, it's on there very tight from the existing pressure in the lines. just don't clamp them so tight that it might tear them. Just hand tight and wiggle back and forth.
When it comes off, gas is going to spill out, be ready. Quickly replace the filter and replace the factory hose clamps, remove yours, and remount it in the bracket.
Close your gas cap!
Start your car a few times to get the pressure back in the lines, and you're all set.
