    It should have been changed every 30,000 miles
    Unless it leaks there is no reason to check it

2005 Ford Expedition Transmission will not move in any forward gear. It will move backwards. I just replaced the transmission speed sensor. It still will not move forward.

I had the same trouble with my 2004 Ford Explorer everyone told me I was going to need a new transmission even had a dealership tell me that sight unseen. I ended up hauling it in to another dealership expecting the worst. I got the call a week later to come pick it up. I asked what the problem was they had said that my transmission fluid need changing it had A LOT of debri in it keep it from working properly and it happended all of a sudden. I felt so relieved. From that pooint on I made sure the transmission fluid was changed every 30,000 miles. I put another 100,000 miles on it before trading it off and getting a bigger SUV. I sure do miss my Explorer I took care of it. :) Good Luck!

Can not shift to reverse/park

Transmission is probably out or on the verge of going out. Or if it is an automatic and the shifter lever itself is hard to move first check transmission and then check gears and components inside steering column.

2002 Ford Expedition motor runs but wont move at all ?

Automatic? Check your transmission fluid. If its low then add to it. If its dark and/or smells burnt then the transmission may have just gone south and needs replaced or rebuilt.

How do I add transmission fluid to a 1999 Ford Expedition

The vehicle should have a dip stick where you can check the transmission fluid, that same place where you pull the trani dip stick out is where you refill it. Remember to keep the vehicle running for a couple minutes before checking the level and do not turn it off, unless you filling it up or adding some fluid. If there is no dip stick then you will most likely have to go to the dealorship and have them take a look, in some cases depeding on model the dip stick will not be there.

Hope this Helps!

How do i check tranmision fluid on a 2004 ford exployer xlt. It has no dipstick to check level or to add fluid.

On transmission pan drain plug will have a small hex screw in the center of drain plug, with engine running and in park remove little center screw, if fluid comes out, transmission level is good, of no fluid come out, will have to pump fluid in that same little plug hole, till fluid starts to come out.

Transmission is stuck in 4 x 4 low

If it is an automatic, check the fluid level. If a manual, climb under it while someone tries to move the transfer case lever. Look for something binding or hanging up

Brownish fluid leaking from the small mannifold on the passenger side of the car in front of the this transmission fluid?

Good chance it's the transmission fluid. The passenger side of the radiator is the transmission cooler side and the coolant is leaking from the transmission lines. There should be two lines, one on top which is the inlet and the bottom one which is the return line. Check to make sure there is no corrosion along the lines or that the line has not come loose at the radiator. Locate the leak and repair or replace the lines. Good luck and take care not to run low on transmission fluid, low fluid in the system will cause the transmission to burn out.
