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) !!!!!!

If you can not find a Haynes or Chilton Manual for sale in your local parts store, you should check your local library, they may have the manual or repair (shop) manual that you can copy pages from for your use. This way you will have pictures.

There are 2 different 4.0L type engines on Ford Explorers if it is the VIN letter E (8th number reading left to right) then yes it has a timing chain on the back and there are 3 timing chains on the front. You will need special tools to hold the timing in place whille you change the chains. You can buy them from several different tool manufacturers. I bought mine from Snap-on but it was several hundred dollars and came with many different adapters for several different engines. But be prepared to spend a little money they aren't cheap even the small sets. Depending upon how much you'll use them you may want to see how much it would cost to have it done or try to find someone to loan you some. If you do then it's just a matter of following the procedure in the maintenance manual. As far as how hard is it? It isn't rocket science but I would make sure you read over the procedure in a repair manual, see if you can get the special tools you will need and depending upon your mechanical aptitude determine if it's something you want to tackle yourself. Good luck.
