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.

After we flushed tranny and cleaned out gunk, it ran good for a few weeks. now it will run good for about ten minutes, then it will not pull in Drive. is there a solution better than a new tranny?


When you say flushed out the tranny, was this done by flowing fluid through or by removing the transmission pan and draining the oil. has the filter been changed? Is the transmission fluid up to the right level?

Why when truck is running transmission stops working


You may have a clogged tranny filter. It is internal, so if you aren\'t a wrench, you\'d better take it to a transmission shop for a tranny-fluid change..

I replaced valve body gasket on my 2001 ford explorer now it wont go in gear at all what could be the problem


Check your transmission fluid level. If you changed out the gasket more than likely you had to drain alot of fluid. Most people say 7-8 quarts but it takes more than that.

How do i check the transmission fluid?


If its a manual transmission it should have a drain and a fill pug on the side of the tranny. usually u should take the top drain plug out n if any oil comes out the the oil level is fine if not add more. If the transmission is automatic then it should have a dipstick on the tranny itself.(dont confuse it with the engine oil dipstick)

the is a drain plug on bottom of tranny. Remove all tranny fluid. Then remove bolts on the tranny pan, remove pan. Remove couple filter bolts and change filter. Replace new gasket and tranny pan. Fill up tranny with 8 quarts or whatever your user manual says with correct fluid.

I need change the automatic transmission fluid Explorer 2002 E.B.


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) !!!!!!
