Adding transmission fluid to an Isuzu Rodeo involves removing the bolt to the transmission case and pumping the fluid in by hand using a pump. This is the only way to add fluid, since there is no valve under the hood to facilitate the process. Transmission fluid, a ratchet and a small hand-pump are the only materials necessary to complete this task.Continue Reading
On the underside of the transmission case, there is a bolt towards the rear, right corner. Using a ratchet, remove the bolt. Catch any transmission fluid that leaks from the hole.
The pump has a long tube at one end and a short one at the other end. Insert the short tube into the hole of the transmission pan and the long tube into the container of transmission fluid.
Squeeze the pump to suck the transmission fluid out of the bottle and force it into the transmission case. Since there is no dipstick to check when there is enough fluid, keep pumping the fluid until it begins to leak out of the hole. When it begins to leak, there is enough fluid to protect the vehicle's transmission.
A transmission oil cooler works first through the transmission, engine or power steering pump heating the fluid that flows to the cooler lines. Air moving across the fins of the cooler cools the fluid, then routes it back to the transmission, engine or power steering pump in a constant cycle through the return line.Full Answer >

Look on the transmission case to locate a Chevy transmission serial number. The numbers are usually located on the transmission housing's middle to lower side, although the exact locations of the numbers vary depending on the application. Every cylinder block and transmission of most late model Chevrolets have vehicle identification numbers and serial numbers stamped on them. The VIN is the same as the instrument panel's stamped vehicle serial number but without the four digits indicating body style.Full Answer >
