Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport
I dont see a plug for my automatic trannie on my transmission. I just want to change my fluid,it is not red anymore.
2001 Ford Explorer,depending on the engine option,will have either a 4R70W or 5R55E model transmission.Neither trans has a drain or fill plug in the pan or case.Changing the fluid is achieved either by removing all the pan bolts,removing the pan and fluid,then reinstalling and adding fluid through the filler tube,or by a shop that has a total flush machine that usually hooks into the cooler lines.I also change the filter on both transmissions as part of the fluid service.The 4R70W trans has a gasket that is reuseable for the life of the vehicle.The 5R55E pan requires a new gasket if dropping the pan.
