If the transmission is low on fluid then the pump that circulates fluid through the transmission and gives it the hydraulic pressure that allows it to work will cease to function. If you are low/out of trans fluid you should empty it completely and change the trans pan gasket and trans filter while you are at it (usually less than $15 if you are doing it yourself).

If you continue driving the vehicle without trans fluid it will break the transmission.

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.
