Bet you know this already...You need to remove the transmission, clutch or converter and flywheel. Replacing the plug itself is just pry it out, put another back in. I suggest you change all the plugs back there unless you want to do the job again in a few weeks/months. There is no easy way to do this job and sealers will not work.
I've seen many people having trouble replacing the automatic transmissions on those so it may be wise to have a shop do this work for you.

Where is the freeze plug located


The engine in your Ford Explorer has freeze plugs, also called expansion plugs, mounted in the sides of the block. Freeze plugs are supposed to protect the engine block if the water in the engine freezes -- the expanded water is supposed to push out the freeze plug, although that doesn't always happen. Freeze plugs are made of thin steel compared to the engine block, and even with an anti-freeze mixture the plugs can rust out and require replacement.

There is a Freeze plug. Located at the rear of the engine.Also approx six more on the block. You will need to remove the tranny to replace it, The replacement part costs $5.00 The labor should be about 2-300 Go to a local tranny shop not AAmco They will rip you off. Change all the freeze plugs at the same time. If one is going out the others will follow soon. Do it soon. John

If you have a vacuum modulator on the trans,it could have a bad diaphram and **** trans fluid into the engine.
Now I do not know what model or unit trans you have. No vacuum mod,then the dealer is correct.
You can look just above the trans oil pan, near the rear, for that part and easily change yourself. Get at auto parts store. It will be the thing with a 3/16 vacuum hose on it,going to a port or vacuum switch on intake manifold

Leak


it is most likely the hose that goes into the heater core next to the firewall hard to see it though. The things have a tendency to leak form the bottom of the line. more so when on, and circulation less.
