If your trooper has an automatic, there will be a separate dipstick like the engine oil you can check.

If it is a standard, you need to get under the vehicle and there will be a bolt plug on the side of the engine, (refer to Haynes manual for specific place). You pull the bolt and put your finger in and the fluid should just be at the tip of your finger.

I have a 2001 Isuzu Trooper with an automatic transmission and the present answer doesn't help me. I do not have a separate dipstick for the Transmission Fluid as I have found on my other cars.

There is no dipstick on your auto trans. Checking it is a real PITAThe 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.

Thanks for the information also.. I have a 98 Trooper w/auto. trans. This type is called a close case which GM put in the small caddies.

Where do you fill the transmission fluid on an Isuzu Trooper 1998?

1992 - 2002 Isuzu Troopers have the GM 4L30E transmission. There is no dipstick. There is no fill tube. The only way to add fluid or check the fluid level of the transmission is through the fill plug in the transmission pan. The transmission fill plug is situated above the fluid level of the "sump" area of the pan. Add fluid by pumping it into the fill plug and let any excess drain out. You'll know it's topped off when the fluid stops pouring out.

How do you know if the transmission fluid is low on a 2002 Isuzu Trooper or if the transmission is going out When starting off the vehicle is jumping?

when accelerating, if the transmission seems to "jump" or "slip" and is fine after that, it's probably low on fluid. while the trooper is on and in park, pull out the transmission dipstick to read the fluid level. wherwe is the dip stick 2002 Isuzu trooper,thank you the 2002 trooper has no tranny dipstick, you need to check it from under the car. on the tranny pan are two drain plugs. one to drain, one to fill. you need to pump the fluid into the fill plug hole. this is best done at a shop that has a pump . fill it up until the fluid runs out the fill hole. quickly replace the plug. do this on a level surface.

Where is the transmission dipstick of an Isuzu Axiom located?

I heard someone comment that it has a "sealed" transmission, therefore, a dealer has to add fluid. I own a 2002 Isuzu axiom. they don't have a dipstick but they do have a holding tank on the right side you check and add fluid there.

Where do you add transmission fluid in a 4x4 2002 Isuzu trooper?

There are two plugs under the transmission (on the fluid pan) the lower one in the center is the drain plug, the other (upper) in the pan corner that is the fill plug. Make sure the fluid is properly warmed up car parked on a level spot then open up the fluid check / fill plug (upper in the corner). You will have to use a fluid pump to fill the transmission pan until the fluid runs out of the fill / check plug. Close and tighten the plug, warm up the fluid and check level again!
