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.
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.
I have a 1994 Isuzu Trooper and it has issues upshifting at lower speeds. How do I check the fluid level in the transmission when there is no dipstick?
if it is an automatic then yes, if it is a standard transmission then no
How do you change the transmission fluid on a 2001 4x4 Isuzu trooper
1999 Isuzu trooper
When changing the filter and fluids of a car, it is important to know the fluid capacity. A 2000 Isuzu Trooper uses 9.1 quarts of transmission fluid.
Same location where you pour the motor oil
Yes. The tranny will not have enough fluid in it!
check your tranny fluid first
how do you find out how to check the transmition in a isuzu rodeo
If auto--through the dipstick tube If standard through side plug in transmission
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.
