Paste the following expression in a notebook and evaluate it.

FrontEndExecute[
FrontEnd`HelpBrowserLookup[
"Graphics`ContourPlot3D`"
]
]

This will summon the documentation for the standard package
Graphics`ContourPlot3D`.  Loading the package into the kernel
will add a definition for a function named ContourPlot3D[].
This function should do what you want.  The default behavior
is to generate the level surface f(x, y, z) = 0.
