Automatic transmissions in todays cars are the most complex and sometimes the hardest things to fix in your car.The transmission depends on so many things outside of the trans itself to work properly.
If anything goes out of the normal in the computers mind it will say 'what the?' and put the trans into a thing called 'limp mode' to help you get the car to a shop for repair.
Sounds like your car may have a sealed trans,that means the trans fluid is a special type that does not need to be changed for a long long time.That does not mean that the trans cannot be opened and repaired.
In your message it sound like your mechanic is just that,a mechanic,a guy that gets paid to change parts and wreak things.You need to find a Technician,a person trained to diagnose then repair if needed.
I'm one of those guy's and if I was experiencing your problem I would find a shop that only works on isuzu that employs only guys factory trained at a dealership.Or I would take it to the dealership.Reason being that unless you have a supercomputer for a brain you cannot know how every car works and repair them,It's better to focus on one car line.
That said,take you broken isuzu to an expert and get a expert repair.
As for the 'mechanic' who 'repaired' your car,do'nt waste any time or money with that guy or his shop.Call the bbb and If you live in california call the bureau of auto repair.And move on,find a good technician and only let that one guy work on your car.

#65 of 167 tranny noises/ clutch assembly?
Apr 27, 2010 (12:56 pm)
i recently built a 2.6 (4ZE1) 4 cylinder motor for my '89 trooper. i have about 10,000 miles on the rebuilt motor. i installed a new clutch with the new motor. i have recently been hearing a chirping noise coming from the bell housing of the tranny. pushing in or releasing the clutch does not effect the sound. i hear it at idle. when i raise the rpm's abit it seems to go away? (not to say that engine noise is now masking it?) and it only does it after its been driven for awhile. not imeddiately after its been warmed up. anyone ever experience this befor? i re used the old tranny and the miles were at 228,000 when i rebuilt it. shifts fine, runs fine, i re did all gaskets on tranny (no leaks) and its full of proper oil.

Jun 23, 2010 (2:27 pm)
i have a 2000 isuzu trooper and i need to change the plugs. its been acting up. i pulled the plugs to check them and they are all different. when i drive sometimes it doesnt want to rev up and it causes the transmission to act up. now my transmission light is on. can bad plugs cause your transmission to act up?

My first thought is no, but with all the electronics I guess that would be possible. The plugs are critical to the Trooper running correctly. Use the wrong plug and it WILL cause issues. I have this note from when I change my plugs several years ago, almost time to think about doing it again since I am around 150K miles on my 2000 Trooper LS.
Trooper spark plug Denso
I used the RC10PYP4 Champion plugs, seems they were around $4 each at WalMart 3-4 years ago. It turned out my Trooper had those plugs installed at the factory. BTW, if you have trouble getting the rubber boot off the plugs, a little shot of compressed air will pop them right off.

i think my trooper needs transmission fluid but i cannot find where to add it. Do i have to take it into a mechanic to have it done?

There is an access plug on the side of the transmission. Difficult to get to and I could not find a diagram last time I looked for one on-line. The trick seems to be.. with the transmission warm, engine running and in neutral, using a flexible hose .. add tranny fluid into that top access hole until it starts running back out and it is full.
