Unfortunatly you cannot check the transmission, or add fluid yourself. You have to take it to a dealer, or a transmission specialist. That's not strictly true. The Trooper uses a GM "closed" transmission system. Its possible to do it yourself, but a real pain and requires some kind of pump system to pump in the fluid from below the vehicle. There are 2 filling bolts on the transmission pan, the lower one is the drain, the higher one towards the pan corner is the fill/level plug. You must remove the fill plug and pump fluid into it until it starts to run back out. Run the engine to distribute and warm the fluid, then check the level again, topping up if necessary. Replace the plug using new seal.

Where to check tranny fluid, cant find dipstick??

1999 Isuzu Troopers w/automatic transmissions do not come with a dipstick. It is a sealed transmission just like a manual transmission. The fluid must be checked by removing the fill plug. Emergency brake on, engine running,warmed up ,vehicle in neutral. When removing the fill plug ,which is on the side of transmission- at the top, fluid should slightly drip out. If fluid doesnt drip out you need to add fluid. You will need a small hand pump to fill it.

Where is the dipsick for transmission fluid located?

Hi, I don't believe you have a dip stick on that truck, the check/fill plug is underneath on the transmission pan, the bottom plug would be for draining and the upper one for checking and filling, check only with engine running on level ground, parking brake on, with fluid warm, not real hot, move shift lever through all gears then back to park, idle about 3 min. and remove plug use little finger to check ,it should be up to the bottom of plug hole, if needed add recommended fluid in plug hole with a simple pump or squeeze bottle. Fluid should be a reddish color with no burnt smell! Have a pan and rags ready!

I have a 1997 Isuzu trooper-limited. Where is the transmission dipstick

There isn't one. You need to climb under it and remove side filler plug on trans (with vehicle warmed up and on level ground) Correct level = dribble of trans fluid from fill hole.

How can i put transmission oil in a izuzu trooper

At transmission pan, there will be two drain plugs, the up most drain plug is where you fill it and check level, to check level, with engine running and in park, unscrew up most plug on transmission pan, if fluid come's out, level is good, if no fluid come's out need to add transmission fluid in that drain plug.

Cannot locate the filler plug for the transmission. need to know where to add tranny fluid to

usually there is a dipstick for the tranny fluid. if you can find that you add the fluid through there with a funnel. other wise you will have to look on top of the tranny for a check plug.
