Transmission fluid level: As you don
I own a 1998(automatic) 3.2L V6 4x4 Rodeo,and I follow the service manual which says to use DEXRON II auto transmission fluid.
In my 93 Isuzu Rodeo you have to add your transmission fluid buy poring it into the the transmission fluid dipstick.
I believe its a synthetic trans fluid it should tell you in your owners manual
The 2001 Rodeo has a sealed transmission. The only way to change it is to pump out the old fluid and refill it via the route. This is not for the weekend mechanic and I suggest that you have a dealer do it.
what type of transmission fluid used for a 97 Isuzu rodeo
Fluid is burned due to overheating Change fluid and filter Fluid is burned due to overheating Change fluid and filter
how do you find out how to check the transmition in a isuzu rodeo
There is none. The 2001 Rodeo has a sealed transmission. The only way to change it is to pump out the old fluid and refill it via the route. This is not for the weekend mechanic and I suggest that you have a dealer do it.
In 2001 rodeo, it has the 4l30-e transmission which is made by GM. You have two possible problem. One your clutches are getting bad or two you are leaking transmission fluid. If you are leaking transmission fluid, you will have to pump the fluid back into the transmission. The most like spot for the leak is in the accumulator area.
it is on the underside of the motor.
On the 2002 Rodeo the transmission is sealed and is non servicable by the owner. You cannot even check the fluid level so I advise taking it to an Isuzu repair shop.
The manual transmission that came in 1995 Isuzu Rodeo was 21.9 US gallon engine which was ranked as 18mpg-US. This has been modified over the years with most models having automatic transmission.?æ
The same place you check it.
drain plug or take the whole transmission pan off and you can change the filter too and put new gasket on
Yes if the engine's are the same
5 quarts is recommended....
My 1998 Rodeo transmission fluid is filled, by removing a filler nut on one side of the transmission (from below) .. with the other filler nut removed on the other side. When the fluid flows out, it is full. This is what a local service station told me. For a few years Rodeo's did not have a filler in the engine compartment.
I just looked it up on autozone.com and two results came back. You can use Dextron III/ Mercon or ATF+4. But you can call them to be sure.
== == 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...
While the original answer below is true, a 1994 Rodeo does have an transmission fluid dipstick. It is right behind the oil dipstick and is where transmission fluid it added. Many vehicles are being manufactured without a transmission dipstick. Transmissions are being held to a quality that has minimized the loss of transmission fluid to the point that manufacturers no longer feel that it is necessary to routinely check the fluid levels. The philosophy has changed. If you follow the manufacturers recommended service schedule the transmission fluid and filter will be serviced before you should need to be concerned about fluid levels. You can change the filter and fluid yourself by dropping the pan, removing and replacing the filter, replacing the pan and adding fluid through the side fill/test hole in the transmission.
The Rodeo tranny is completely internal, so you can either go to a dealer/shop to change it, or find a pump of some kind to fill through the overflow hole on the right side of the tranny body. Not the best design.
The way to check the transmission fluid level is you run the vehicle in park until operating temp. When operating temperature is reached then there is a plug in the transmission pan pull out just the middle of it to check fluid.
it depends if it is an automatic tranmission then you would add AFT (automatic transmission fluid) down the dip stick hole (where you check the level) if it is a manual transmission you will find a bolt on the side of the transmission that is reffered to as the check plug when you take this plug out you should be able to touch the fluid when you stick your finger in the check plug hole. any further questions email me at email@example.com This is incorrect aas there is no dipstick hole on these Rodeos.

MUA and MSG models use SAE 30 or SAE40 motor oil. BW model uses Dexron II or III.
