This is a very good answer below but it does NOT apply to a 1999 Isuzu Rodeo. The Rodeo's transmission is sealed, you cannot check fluid levels at home, you must take the vehicle to an authorized Isuzu mechanic so they can check the tranny fluid for you. Transmission: Keep an eye on your oil level, as it can get low on you real quick, especially on long hi speed highway trips. There are ways to remedy this. If equipped with an AT, your rodeo has a 4L30E GM trans. You should change the ATF. BMac- for the ATF leak thing, check the accumulator piston cover on the pass side of the trans. VERY common on the 4L30E. Leaks? How about the accumulator cover? It's on the right side and it's round. Check this: Accumulator repair: before trying to remove the snap ring you need to push the accumulator cover in then remove the cover don

It's underneath the engine. You would need to lift the car. I'd recommend getting it professionally done.

A 1998 automatic transmission may not work very well on a 1999 Isuzu Rodeo. This is mainly due to the incompatibility of the two engine systems and some modifications may need to be made.รŠ

Yes, but you don't want the 2001 engine, it has more issues than the 1999 engine.

Underneath the engine. You would need to lift the truck to have access to it. It's difficult to add more fluid on your own. I recommend getting it done by a professional.

These transmissions do not have a dipstick, the fluid level is checked by removing a fill plug on the case, similar to a manual transmission.

The shift lock solenoids are located on the valve body on a 1999 Isuzu Rodeo. There are two shift solenoids.

I am presently going through the samething. Try changing the trans fluid and filter, it is most times recommeded after 100,000 miles.

No they do not match. the 1999 uses and AISIN transmission and the 1995 uses a JATCO transmission.

It depends where it's leaking from. I have had two previous cases of my truck leaking transmission fluid and both consisted of the pressure lines not being properly clipped on or a bad hose. It could be a old or faulty gasket inside the transmission box. Either way it would need replacing of the hardware. only way to fix it.

== == Depending on the type of manual transmission you have (MUA, RMN, or Borg-Warner T5), a 1999 Isuzu Rodeo (4 cyl or V6) will require either Synchromesh fluid, or Dexron III (yes, that's technically automatic transmission fluid, but certain manual transmissions such as the Borg Warner T5 actually do call for DEXIII ATF). MUA or RMN transmissions: Manual Synchromesh Transmission Fluid, 5W30 viscosity. It's a light amber-colored fluid.. Synchromesh fluid is also available in other brands, such as Pennzoil, Royal Purple, and GM. Vehicles with MUA or RMN transmissions will need 3.15 quarts of fluid. Borg Warner T-5 transmission: Dexron III ATF. This is a reddish colored fluid. Vehicles with this type of transmission will need 2.2 quartsof fluid. Your next question is probably, "So how do I know which type of transmission I have?" In our experience, the MUA transmission has been more common. However, you'll want to verify; perhaps you can call the dealership with your VIN number and they can decode what type of transmission you have. Perhaps someone with more experience or resources can chime in...

you can see the transmission level and quality by opening your hood. it's located in the upper right of the engine. Its in a clear like container revealing its level. You can open the top cap to get a better look at the quality of the fluid. To add more fluid the whole truck would need to be lifted. The equivalent of a transmission dipstick is found underneath. It can be cumbersome to add on your own. I recommend a professional do it.

Transmission fluid is inside the transmission.

A 1999 Isuzu Rodeo that starts and then dies is not getting enough fuel, or the fuel mixture is off. It could be a clogged fuel line, dirty fuel filter or the fuel pump. It will need to be serviced.

I know very little about any of this, however I just bought a 1999 Trooper and asked my mechanic exactly this question. Unfortunately, he told me that it has to be checked under the vehicle.AnswerGo down to where do you pour trans. fluid in a 1996 Isuzu rodeo in this forum AnswerWell let me add my 2 cents. If the vehicle has an automatic transmission, there will be a transmission dipstick tube probably on the left hand side of the engine bay. It would look like an oil dip stick set up.If the vehicle has a manual transmission (stick shift) than those are filled by removing a bolt from the side of the transmission, putting your finger in to check the levels.Answer1999 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.

The 1999 Isuzu Rodeo uses 5w-30 motor oil. The oil should be changed every three months or 3000 miles of use.

Under the intake manifold, its very difficult!

Some causes for a 1999 Isuzu Rodeo to stop running include a lack of fuel, a bad battery, or defective spark plugs. There can also be a combination of issues which would need to be diagnosed by a mechanic.

This is for a 1999 v6

If it is a manual trans it has no dipstick. Auto Trans. Rodeo has no dipstick. Fluid levels must be checked from underneath the vehicle on a lift at the shop. It can only be filled from underneath the vehicle as well. Great idea huh? Just traded in my '01 rodeo with 160,000 miles, tranny had failed completely, started experiencing major problems at about 35,000 mi. BUYERS BEWARE!!
