Same as muffler bearings...
why not find where it leaks first.
i guess its and automatic, transmission?
and has 4wd and with a transfer case (it too can leak)
imagine its box. a box has 6 sides.
one cleans it and then drives, and find which side leaks.
only evidence works here, clean, drive , find. location.
the other way, is to use the dye, kit and light.
add dye to oil/lube, then drive, then come home
and use the light (comes with the kit) and find it.
or get the car fixed, this is what they will do..... pay them.

leaks have many causes.
1: bad gaskets. or vents blocked,
2: loose parts.
3: bad o-rings, seals.
4: bad castings, called porosity failures.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casting_defect
5: and more, cracks.? warpage,,,, ext, dampage
even road collision damage . or things you hit in the road.
we can't just guess , any of this, only tell you , the car needs service. and why ask the blind?

I find all my leaks, by , clean,drive ,look repeat.
works every time, but takes hard work.

SELCO.
my wild guess, that is someone told you
in a wild and useless guess, not inspected.
the shift selection shaft seals leaks.

good luck and remember you never told us what drive line is in your car. not one word, all we know is the body shell name. (mostly useless)
nor if in usa, they have rodeo's in Australia too.
some there chock full of HOLDEN parts.

ALL car work, diagnosis , is a hand on deal.
using real mechanics and all that.
Many cars leak oil, and is ignored.
Some are very hard to find,.
may are cause by lack of service.
when you service a car the mechanic's looks over
the whole car (you didn't) and he sees,omg, the trans tail shaft leaks oil. (only it is wet)
so tells you, that it leaks, ATF fluid. (pink ,/red)
and needs a new seal,
see?
then you ask how much is that?,
then he or she says.
if just seal, it's $15+ 1hr labor
if the yoke is damaged, and 1hr, and $100
if the last joker damaged the tail other housing at the seal, the cost is a new housing.
that joker never heard of proper seal puller.

not any of which can be guessed at. ever.
one must take it apart and see what is up.

that is what the mechanical world is like.
unless a new $3000 tranny is in the cards, just for one leak.

the common leaks (means nothing really)
are:
tail shaft seal.
front seal.
pan gasket leaks due to last service, done wrong.
pan drain, if it has one, the seal ring bad. o
(front ,rear, bottom are the common sides.)
and the shift manual selector shaft seal bad.

SOURCE: how to check transmission fluid on 2001 isuzu rodeo

There is no dipstick on your auto trans. Checking it is a real PITA The trans pan has 2 plugs in it. The one on the very bottom is the drain. The one in the corner, up higher in a recess is the check/fill plug. To check, the engine must be warm and running, tranny in P. Remove the plug and fluid should dribble out. If it doesn't it's low, fill until it dribbles out, while engine is running. Obviously the truck must be on a lift or up on jackstands.

SOURCE: How to check transmission fluid

Easier done on a lift, but you need to start the vehicle and let it warm up and then remove the fill plug not yhr drain plug, (with the vehicle running) the plug will be found on the transmission pan but it is NOT the one on the very bottom of the pan, there is another plug up in the corner of the pan on the passenger side. Remove this plug carefully, for the fluid will be warm to hot, if a little runs out of the hole your ok, if nothing comes out with the plug completely removed you need to add a little at a time thru this hole until it runs back out. DO NOT SHUT THE ENGINE OFF WITH THIS PLUG OUT, fluid will run out if you do.

To get fluid in the hole, attach a small hose to a filler top off of a gear oil bottle and put that top on your tranny fluid bottle, turn it upside and squeeze the fluid in using the hose to get it into the pan. If you have a fluid pump it would be better but if not this will work.

SOURCE: 2001 Isuzu Rodeo transmission

under the truck you will see the large trans fluid pan. there are two 3/4 inch bolts. one recessed about 2 inches and one flush with the bottom of the pan.  The recessed one is the fill tube and the non recessed one is the drain.  You will need a pump of some sort to pump the fluid in the fill tube until it starts draining out.  I think if you start the truck the fluid will lower and you can put more fluid in until it drains again.  I dont know yet what kind of fluid to use.

SOURCE: transmission fluid level

I have a 1998 Isuzu Rodeo however when I purchased the vehicle I managed to obtain a service manual on mine.
Mine is a V-6 3.2liter engine with automatic transmission and it took me a while to find out where I added transmission fluid at too.

It is located under the vehicle on the Passenger side of the vehicle and it is located on the transmission just before the transfer case. There is like a eye beam across one side to another then there is like a Indent the lower one is for drain and the upper one with a larger bolt like plug is the fill hole. I used a turkey baster with a large bulb like affair to **** the transmission fluid in to it from the bottle then I inserted the baster up and into the hole vacated by the plug. Then squeezed the fluid into the transmission and kept at it till the fluid dripped out on its own. I hurried and inserted the plug into the hole and screwed into it and tightened it up and lowered the vehicle down checked after the vehicle had been warmed up and re jacked the vehicle up and rechecked and all I needed was a small squirt into it and it was full and since then it has been running really well since.

How much transmission fluid do you need to fill a 2002 Izuzu Rodeo


in the absence of car manual, fill initially with one liter/qrt of transmission fluid. check for leaks and start engine. with transmission in park, slowly add transmission fluid with engine at idle. constantly monitor transmission fluid level with vehicle on level position until fluid level in "cold", then drive vehicle approximately for one mile until fluid is warmed up or hot. recheck fluid level with engine idling and on park. Add if necessary until fluid level in Hot position in dip stick. then your done. write down how much fluid you added for future reference.

2001 isuzu rodeo transmission leaking


That is a common problem on this transmission. You can get one from a transmission parts supply company. It is held in with a snap-ring and it has a big spring pushing it out towards the snap-ring. It must be pressed in while the snap-ring is removed. Its best you get someone that has done this before. It is a servo cover, looks like a small hockey puck. Replace and fill fluid and drive on.

whats the fluid smell like? when was the last time it was serviced? where is fluid on stick when hot? low on fluid could do what you discribed, but chances are trans needs rebuilt. if fluid smells burnt, rebuild or replacement.
