Changing transmission fluid in 200- ford explorer

Found a small yellow piece that has a black rubber gasket on it . It was lying in the bottom of the pan when we removed it and we can't figure out where it goes. It is plastic and looks like a plunger.

Explorer 2000 transmission fluid leak


have the seal at the bottom of the cable replaced

How do you change transmission fluid on a 2007 explorer with no dipstick


WRONG! At least CHANGE the FLTER and 6.75 quarts of MERCON V transmission fluid, not anything less!! $ 5.50/quart at Advance Auto. Get a Haynes manual or similar - it's NOT clear, what to do either! AT LEAST do what's being described for this "life-time sealed A05 Automatic transmission! Now if you have the BMW car A06 speed (so-called) transmission - YOU"VE got a REAL PROBLEM + use MERCON SP fluid ($ 10 per quart).

NOTE car MUST be SAFELY, up at least 18" from the ground and LEVEL. Parking Brake ON and BLOCK front and rear of ALL tires! To CHECK fluid level Trans must be at least 80 degrees F and ENGINE RUNNING = DANGEROUS !

The problem is you need a screw in fitting to properly fill and check the A05 speed Automatic transmission ADAPTER (up to 100 dealer) 9 at Amazon worked for me. A small pump with hose (similar, but larger than what hand soap uses) (from $ 6 Amazon to $ 32 - $ +9 at the car stores). A new filter ($ 18 to $ 100). WARNING some filters say they come with a Gasket, the don't! The gasket is special metal and silicone should be reusable IF you don't tear or over torque (tighten). REMOVE Drain plug, the trans pan 15 small bolts, take off pan CLEAN WELL, remove magnet CLEAN, remove two small bolts on filter, LET DRAIN 20 plus minutes. Wipe with clean, lint free cloth ALL of the bottom of trans - then LIGHTLY clean the gasket surface. bolt up the new filter. Lightly install all bolts. Then LIGHTLY with a short 1/4" ratchet tighten all of them.- NOT TOO TIGHT!

Remove the Torx screw/plug from the middle of the Drain Plug - screw in the Adapter, put pump hose onto it - pump 5 quarts into pan. Start engine, pump the next 1.75 quarts into transmission. Using another CLEAN transmission bottle, remove the hose AT the top of the pump - put into the bottle, when about a 1/4 th of a quart drain out on its own - remove the Fill adapter - reinstall the Torx Plug. WIPE all off evidence of oil - drive! Check for leaks the next day!

While doing this, why not protect your investment AND SAVE MONEY? Change the Oil, Oil Filter, Fuel Filter? Use Purolator or Ford Brand Filters ONLY! Use 15-40 Chevron Delo Diesel Grade Oil or Shell Rotundunda . In 500 miles or less I would suggest replacing oil and filter - NEVER MIX OILS. (or use WD40 (designed for arthritis - it's fish oil with water IN it! Destroys engines! Factual Opinions' count, feelings base on LIES, don't!

How do i check tranmision fluid on a 2004 ford exployer xlt. It has no dipstick to check level or to add fluid.


On transmission pan drain plug will have a small hex screw in the center of drain plug, with engine running and in park remove little center screw, if fluid comes out, transmission level is good, of no fluid come out, will have to pump fluid in that same little plug hole, till fluid starts to come out.

Ford econoline 350 87 i need to change


the only difficult part is catching all the fluid, i would recommend doing the filter while your at it it is extremly easy, if you can change your oil you can do a filter and a gasket,
one recomendation though put the bolts through the holes in the pan and through and the gasket before you put the pan on the gasket will hold the bolts in place and you wont have to try and line up the rubber gasket to the holes lying upside down under your van

I need change the automatic transmission fluid Explorer 2002 E.B.


There IS a transmission drain plug on the 2002 Ford Explorer! It is, however, difficult to get the fluid back in as there IS NO dipstick (tube) to refill it. I installed the pan bolts far enough to hold the pan up (level) and then stuck a hose (attached to a funnel at top of engine compartment) through the opening between the pan and the bottom of the transmission. I was able to put five quarts in that way - no more as it will overflow (trust me). You can check other sites on how to check to see if that's enough and how to add more as needed. That's not simple either. Great idea Ford Motor Company (sarcasm) !!!!!!

Where is transmission drain plug 2001 FRD Explorer Sport


2001 Ford Explorer,depending on the engine option,will have either a 4R70W or 5R55E model transmission.Neither trans has a drain or fill plug in the pan or case.Changing the fluid is achieved either by removing all the pan bolts,removing the pan and fluid,then reinstalling and adding fluid through the filler tube,or by a shop that has a total flush machine that usually hooks into the cooler lines.I also change the filter on both transmissions as part of the fluid service.The 4R70W trans has a gasket that is reuseable for the life of the vehicle.The 5R55E pan requires a new gasket if dropping the pan.
