I have a 2004 Rodeo 3.5DI with 140K and I am pretty sure the trans fluid has never been changed. I see that our trans takes a special fluid not easly obtained anymore and I am wondering what is a replacement that we can get here in the states?

Brydon, how is your transmission doing ? Have you changed the fluid or else ?

Uh, well no :( Not yet, I had a free diagnosis from a local transmission shop. They seem to think it's electronic (range sensor, TPC, or TCU) so after I get all that straightened out I am going to change my fluid out because I know it needs to be done. I will actually be doing a bit today, and this weekend. I will let everyone know my results and ect with some decent feedback, thanks Holger.

I cannot imagine a reason why anybody who has to work for living would use a non-recommended fluid for the auto transmission. The AT is so expensive to fix, and it usually is getting broken in the most unexpected unfortunate moment.

Aisin AT in '03-'04 Isuzus requires 3309/Type IV fluid. A few of us are so fortunate to have a "normal" reliable AT. Let's not screw up this one.
