    1997 Isuzu Rodeo Suv. My brother just bought this truck and I was trying to change the Auto Transmission fluid but I couldn't find the dipstick tube where I can refill the ATF fluid. Anyone knows the location I really appreciate any feedback, Thanks Joe

    It doesn't have a dipstick..It has a fill plug down by the drain plug..you fill it like a rear differential....Jim

    make sure the engine is running when cking the fluid level.......the fill plug removed & add fluid til it runs out.

    Pardon my ignorance. My brother bought the 97 from me and has the same problem. Where is that located, exactly?

    Pretty sure its the same, going by memory and on my daughters Trooper, get under it and on the transmission pan on the rear of the pan on the drivers side you will see 2 plugs, the upper one is the one you want to fill with the engine running.
