what pan is this , and does it have to be refilled


Asked by Jan 06, 2015 at 12:34 AM about the 2001 Isuzu Rodeo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

have 2001 isuzu rodeo 2.2L automatic, and im currently replacing the transmission
gasket for the pan that  has the drain plug and fill plug, upon me doing this i discovered
another pan that sets infront of this pan except it just alot smaller and has a
rectangluar shape. I see they make a gasket for it and they call it the transmission oil
pan.. since i dropped my transmission pan and replaced gasket does that affect the
smaller pan if i choose not to replace the gasket and what are the contents in the
smaller pan?

So it's not this? http://www.amazon.com/FT1170-Internal-Transmission-Cartridge-Filter/dp/B000C33L42


I think I know what you're referring to. It's the valve body of the transmission, what I like to call the brain. There are probably a dozen bolts holding it in place. It has channels, holes, pistons, springs, check balls, etc that guide ATF through it which enables the transmission to shift.
