Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
First check the level indicator rod and see if the fluid is still red if its black or contaminated, its all ready bad news, i hope its not bad, then do these test: measure the level with the engine off see or mark exactly where it is, then start the engine and aply it to drive, then to park again, now measure the level (engine on) check where it is, it should be about half or 3/4 of an inch lower these indicates torque converter and pump are working ok, if the level its in the same place you have to repair your tranny, abaout flushing it, I often use a big reservor or bowl put right under the carter and start taking the bolts off frpm front to back then i let 2 bolts one front one back and loosen the front one carefully ant the oil starts falling in the bowl then i lossen the last one after the oil drains and be carefull the carter still hold about a liter, i hope these helps good luck
