So I recently bought a 2005 Ford Explorer XLT, 4.0L V6. I noticed it doesn't have a transmission dipstick. I couldn't beleive what my eyes were seeing. So I have to say, great move ford... So I'm curious at when I'm supposed to change out my transmission fluid. The old chrysler deal I bought this car from said it had a full synthetic blend of transmission fluid and doens't have to be changed until 100K miles. Is that right? Or when should I get this changed out?
