Check the fluid after your vehicle has reached normal operating temperature, which is reached after driving approximately 32 km (20 miles). Add fluid in .25L (1/2 pint) increments through the filler tube until the level is at the correct area on the dipstick. If an overfill occurs, excess fluid should be removed by a qualified technician.

SOURCE: how to bleed braked on 1998 ford explorer

OK, there are little nipples or bleeder screws that when not rusty and new can be turned with a small wrench or socket.

The problem is that when they get old and rusty, they can shear off or round off the hexagonal sides and corners of the bleeder screw.

Therefore, you sometimes need some oxy acetylene torch heat pinpointed on the bleeder screw to let air and brake fluid out of each wheel's bleeder screw (through the hole in the center).

If you only add brake fluid, then air bubbles can still exist in the sensitive brake lines, causing a spongy pedal and endangering anyone who drives it.

One wants a hard pedal that pumps up in a couple of tries, not a spongy pedal that goes to the floor board, which doesn't generate much braking force.

FIrst, pump up the brakes to maximum pressure by pumping the brake pedal up and down.

Then, on the down cycle (a friend or assistant can do this), open the bleeder screw counter clockwise until fluid comes out. Don't allow any in your eyes. Then tighten the bleeder screw and ask the assistant to pump up the brakes again, and then repeat the cycle on the 4 different wheels, until it has a 'hard' pedal and not 'soft.'


I wish you luck on bleeding your brakes.

SOURCE: Location of Speed Sensor 1998 Ford Explorer XLT

If it has RWAL only, the sensor is in the rear end. If it is ABS brakes, there are speed sensors on the front wheels as well. If there is in fact a speed sensor in the tranny, it is most likely internal.

SOURCE: 1998 ford explorer is having a transmission slip

Shift solenoid is typically WHEN to shift, not slipping.
Bands and fluid are slipping (and sometimes pump).

Cheap test, remove old, install new fluid... test.
If it works - congrats.
If not, AAMCO or other transmission place for a real test.

How do you know when you need to change your transmission fluid in my 2002 ford explorer


This is in the owners manual pages 269 and 270. TRANSMISSION FLUID
Checking automatic transmission fluid (if equipped)
The automatic transmission does not have a transmission fluid dipstick.
Refer to your scheduled maintenance guide for scheduled intervals for fluid checks and changes. Your transmission does not consume fluid. However, the fluid level should be checked if the transmission is not working properly, i.e., if the transmission slips or shifts slowly or if you notice some sign of fluid leakage.
Transmission fluid should be checked and, if required, fluid
should be added by a qualified technician.
Do not use supplemental transmission fluid additives, treatments or cleaning agents. The use of these materials may affect transmission operation and result in damage to internal transmission components. Checking and adding manual transmission fluid (if equipped)
1. Make sure the vehicle is on a level surface or level hoist.
2. Clean the filler plug or dirt and debris.
3. Remove the filler plug and inspect the fluid level.
4. Fluid level should be at bottom of the opening.
5. Add enough fluid through the filler opening so that the fluid level is at the bottom of the opening.
6. Install and tighten the fill plug securely.
Use only fluid that meets Ford specifications. Refer to the Lubricant Specifications in this chapter.

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.
