Sound like the tube that connects your heater core to the water supply from radiator. On Fords these tube are metal and very oftern rust out and need to be replaced. This is located behind and to the right (passenger) side of the engine.

What are the chances that transmission fluid could get into your oil on a 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

Not that good although it could happen
You would need a leak inside the radatior between the oil colling system for the transmission and a leaking intake manifold gasket that is letting collant leak into the engine that has trany fluid nixed with it .Of coruse you would see oil floating on top of the antifreeze if you removed the radiator cap or the fluid res
. Also look at the engine oil for white foem this also means collant is getting into the engine oil white smoke out the exhaust sure sign you have a leak someware .

If there is a crack in the head leading into the crankcase the water could be dumping into the oil. Look at the dipstick. Also, water could be dumping into the exhaust ports. I think you need a mechanic smarter than you or me.

My freeze plug is leaking. 2002 Explorer Sport Trac ... where is it? how can I do it on my own? I am college student with no resources - so i really need some free help here.

Drain the coolant first. Then remove the old freeze plug by drilling a hole in the center and pop it out. Then put a new freeze plug with RTV around the the edges of the new plug. The best way to install the plug is to get a socket that fits inside the freeze plug to drive the plug in. (Make sure you drive it in straight) otherwise it will leak. This will take about 45 minutes to an hour. The RTV you can buy at a local parts store with the freeze plug.

1999 trans am loosing anti freeze no signs of leak

Not good. If you are loosing a measurable amount, with no apparent leak, 2 things could be happening. #1, you are loosing anti-freeze into your crankcase. To check for this, pull out dipstick. If you have coolant in your oil, the oil on the end of the stick will have a milky white tinit to coffee with cream, except thicker. The other possible way to loose coolant is thru the exhaust. You can check this by seeing if you have moisture dripping from the tailpipe, or by holding your hand at the exhaust termination. If moisture forms on your hand, then you are loosing coolant thru the exhaust. These 2 conditions are caused by either a blown head gasket, or a cracked head.
