I had the same questions, I contacted Izuzu and it is not servicable by you and I. It has to be checked by the service center by raising the vehicle and removing the bolts as in replacing the Transmission Fluid. This was on the 97-99's. They have gone back to dipsticks but unfortunately we are stuck with the service center. YES you can do it!! Be careful not to overfill but do as follows to check the fluid. As you don
how do you find out how to check the transmition in a isuzu rodeo
The check trans light may light up in an Isuzu Rodeo, because there are problems with the transmission, The light will show up on the cars dashboard.
if it is an automatic then yes, if it is a standard transmission then no
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.
yes the system is sealed, which means there isn't a dip srick on the side of the motor so you can check the level of the transmission fuild like you would check your engine oil , also owner of 2001 Isuzu Rodeo Sport V6 Automatic.
there is 2 plugs on the bottom pan of the trans. With the engine running pull the plug that is higher up. Fluid should just trickle out.
== == == == There isn't one! Nor is there a way for you to check the level yourself- you must have a mechanic to do it.
I do believe that if it's a sealed transmission then you have to pull the check plug from the trans to check it its just like a fill plug believe its on the left side of trans.
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.
A code 37 on an Isuzu Rodeo means to check the transmission. This could mean that a short is occurring between the Transmission Control Module and the Electronic Computer Unit. Check all wires going from the transmission to the computer. If no short is found, a tube might be placed over the wires to prevent them from accidentally coding for no reason other than magnetic interference.
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. Transmission fluid level: As you don
There is not a dipstick. There is a plug in the side of the transmission case and the mechanic has to remove it and use a gauge to check the level.
I know true 95's have a dipstick for the automatic transmission. I also know 96 rodeo's do not but instead have an oil check plug in the transmission oil pan. Isuzu also came out with a 95.5 because all vehichles produced halfway through 1995 legally had to have airbags. So it has the 96 interior but the engine is same as the 95. I do not know if the 95.5 had a transmission dipstick. Mine is a stick.
disconnect the battery
My check engine light has been on for one month but last night my check trans light flashed off and on about 3miles till I was home. Why and what do I need to do? I have a 2000 Isuzu rodeo.
sending unit in tank
The check engine light for the 2001 Isuzu Rodeo often comes on because of a sensor that is damaged or malfunctioning. The most common sensor is an oxygen sensor and when reset, this often allows the light to be reset.
possibly a transmission code from the ecm. i would have this checked soon. transmission damage possible.
Unfortunately you do it with difficulty. Isuzu maliciously decided not to have a transmission dipstick on the transmission so the average guy cannot check it easily. Per the book, the transmission must be warmed to a precise temperature and then an overflow plug on the transmission is taken out. Fluid is added until it starts to flow out of the overflow plug and then you know it is full. it obviously must be done from under the vehicle. I would not have bought mine had I known this.

You can get a diagram for the driver door lock mechanism for a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo at various auto part stores. You can also check in the owner's manual.
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
get a new one
Check the Rodeo choke to make sure that is closes when its cold. A bad choke will give you starting problems in the cold.
