How can you change the transmission oil in a 1997 Isuzu Trooper with automatic transmission?
Simple answer is take it to an auto transmission shop. They have all the gear and replace the gasket and internal filter for little more than it would cost for the bits. I gave up doing this years ago.
To change the transmission fluid, jack up your SUV to have enough room to get under the vehicle comfortably and safely. Find the transmission and have a drain pan under it. Remove the drain plug and allow fluid to drain. Remove all of the bolts and lower the transmission pan. Remove the transmission filter and replace if needed.
1998 4x4 Isuzu trooper with a automatic transmission the 4wd button on the dash has auto 4x4wd can anyone tell you what auto means?
there is a drain plug and a fill plug on the underside of the transmission. you need to use the fill plug. You can not fill the transmission fluid or check the level, any other way.(it is a ridiculous design, i know.....) go to autozone.com look under Isuzu repair info, then choose the year and choose "trooper".then look under "fluids" the info will be there.
The Isuzu has a sealed transmission. It has a transmission fill plug on the side of the transmission above the pan, I believe on the right side of the trans case about midway the case body. Take the pan off remove and change filter. Add fluid by using an inexpensive pump until the fluid starts to run out the fill plug hole. Replace the plug. Job done.
