On my 04', if I remember correctly, which I think I do, you need to remove the flexible rubber mud guard inside the wheel well to change the plugs, basically the only way. The front plug is a real pain but between working through the wheel well and from up top, its possible.

Sometimes when your changing the plugs you have to use extensions, swivels in either 3/8 or 1/4 with an adaptor to use the 3/8 socket. or you can purchase a special spark plug socket that swivels on its own. and then there are those vehicles that you have to tilt the motor to get the back spark plugs out and in.

I have a 2004 ford explorer xlt v6 4.0l gas. need a o2 sensor diagram. I need names and description. for example bank 1 sensor 2 after catalytic converter

Hope this helps

Bank two are the even cylinders. Follow exhaust manifold on the side. You will find an O2 sensor just after or on the manifold, before the catalytic converter. Then, look after the catalytic and you should find another O2 sensor, this is the one you mention in your post.

Se me kedaron las llaves dentro de mi explorer 2004 tiene botones en las puertas cual es la clave

I'm not completely sure I understand the question, but here's my best guess!

Open the right/rear door. Pull the body weatherstrip back a little. Fold down the right/rear seat back. Pull the panel where the right/rear seat belt anchors to the top, with the sliding height adjuster. Pull back the lower panel just until you can see the Vehicle Security Module with the three electrical connectors colored green, blue, and grey. There is a label with the number 5L2T-15K602-EA. You will also see FIVE numbers. That is your five digit keypad entry code.
