There are two drain plugs on the bottom of the pan. remove the lower one to drain the trans fluid. To refill, use a pump and pump the fluid into the upper drain plug until it seeps out and re-install the plug, similar to refilling a manual trans.
Once this is done, Start the vehicle and run it for about 3 minutes, shifting through all gears (do not drive vehicle Remove the upper drain plug and let any excess fluid drain out. Done. This is as per Mitchell OnDemand.

Hello, Unfortuanetly the Rodeo does not have a dipstick and you must have a service technician check your transmission fluid by removing bolts on the tranny as if your were going to drain the transmission. I hope this helps you with your problem. A technician should not charge to much to do this for you either.

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't have an ATF dipstick, you will have two plugs facing down on the trans pan. The plug higher up on the pan is the fill/level check (stamped/recessed into the rear right corner of pan). ATF should just drip from this plug on a hot, idling truck, in neutral on a flat surface. The lower one is the drain. The one at the back of the pan in a recess is the filler. You need a squirt pump or something like one to fill it with the engine running.

I am assuming your rodeo has the V-6 engine, like the one I used to own. Your drain plug is located on the engine oil pan, along the rear side of the oil pan. this is located in the center of your rodeo, about 3 feet back from the bumper!
