    tranny fluid change - any special instructions

    tranny fluid change - any special instructions

    Thanks Glacier. I am curious about the recommended fluid change interval. The posts that were linked above referred to the 5R55W transmission.

    tranny fluid change - any special instructions

    Yes, the 2002 model w/ the 5 speed auto is a sealed unit with no dipstick. So it can't be filled from the engine compartment. There has to be a fill plug on the tranny somewhere. I thought I might try to find out where it is before I crwal under and look. It does not have a cooler. Thanks.

    How to change mirror light

    The light bulb on my driver's side exterior mirror is burned out. How do I remove the lens cover? Do I just pry it out, I don't want to break it.

    Transmisson type & fluid change interval

    I have a 2002 EB Explorer with a 4.6 L and the 5 speed auto transmission. The order sheet shows transmission type is 44R. The scheduled maintenance guide only refers to transmission types AX45, 4F50N, 4R100, 4F27E. The fluid changes are recommended at 30,000 miles. How often should I change...

    Anyone know if 2003 running boards.....

    for an EB Explorer will fit a 2002 EB Explorer? The guys in the parts dept at my local Ford dealer can't tell me. I'm looking for part #'s including brackets. Also, do you know of any online service manuals or some other source of (exploded assembly) drawings?
