Yes you will need a gasket and if you go to the parts store they will sell you what you need. Just tell them what you have and they will give you the filter and gasket. I am not real sure on this year if there is a bolt holding the filter in place and I have looked in all my books on this one but can't seem to find out. If there is a bolt there will only be one more then likely but i really dont think you have a bolt. Just take the pan down and see if you can gently pull down the filter. Most of the time they are just up there with a O-Ring to hold them in.

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) !!!!!!
