I think the primary transmission used on the 02 was the 5R5S. I believe some of them were also made with 4R70W transmission. Either one would fit, but if you get the wrong one then the computer will be very confused and it won't run right. If you take your vin to your local dealership and ask them to, they should be able to run a report on your vin and tell you what transmission is in your vehicle. As for putting a different one in there, the only thing that I know of that would fit is the M5OD-R1 which is a manual and would require a lot of extra work to install the floor shifter and clutch assemblies.

Will the parts from a 2002 Ford Explore interchange with a 2001 Ford Expedition???

If you're referring to the engine some v8s are interchangeable as well as some electrical parts but most explorers are equipped with v6s and all expeditions are v8s explorers are mid size expeditions full size. I usually look for part numbers on and check for vehicle fitment by swithiching the vehicle selection on the drop box visit the page and you'll see what I mean.

Change oil transmission ford explorer 2002 4x2

i know you cannot check your transmission fluid like years prior to the 2002 they made this model so you have to take it into the shop/dealership to have them check your levels, and change the transmission. They are trying to eliminate the backyard mechanic from doing maintenance on the vechicles
