Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
Hmm sounds bizarre, I had a '96 exploder with 4wd. my forward drive shaft U joint went bad on a longer than usual trip and vibrated the tail shaft of the transmission until it broke the case. I strongly recommend against any do-it-yourself remedies, What did the adjuster determine? I took the vehicle to a reputable shop to have the tranny repaired, (re-built) $3000+ New case. Two years later it went out again, and another $1500 rebuild. They need a special tool to install some o-rings and it costs over $1000. If it is worth it to you I recommend taking it to a major Ford Factory Certified Shop, (dealer) and having a New Transmission installed, (not rebuilt, re-certified, or any other term for Not New) Make sure it has a nice long warranty period.

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) !!!!!!
