First off what do you mean you need replacement parts or you need to locate them on the vehicle? If your talking about locating them on the vehicle that is the most straight forward easy thing to do. the oil pan plug is located on the rear bottom of the oil pan. The oil filter is easy to spot as well just by doing a visual inspection.
Here is a link to help you find the oil drain plug.

What would cause transmission to shudder first thing in the morning when you start the engine and put it in reverse on a 2004 ford explorer v8 4.6


If car has high miles, trans wear could cause this. I would try removing 1 quart of new fluid and replace with Lucas trans additive.

I need to find the oil drain plug on a 92 ford explorer eddie bauer.


Hello, it on the side or bottom of the oil pan. The oil pan is the bottom end of the engine. This is were the oil is stored and were the oil pick up the oil for lubrication of the engine. It is a 5/8" plug with a copper or fiber washer. If you are changing the oil make sure that drain plug has it copper or fiber was on it. If not, the plug will leak little droplets. GB...stewbison

clean the srea and watch, tracing back to the source. The oil can leak from the front seal, rear main seal,Pan gaske, or come from the top of engine. Chances are greater it's coming from the front because of fan draft. good luck

Need to know how to put a oil pump in a 1998 ford explorer xlt 5.0 liter


The oil pump is internal.Unless you can get the oil pan off,you can't do the job.I'd think you'd have to pull the engine on the explorer especially if it's 4x4.Thats a tight fit.Hope this helps!
