2017 Explorer platinum
I have a 2017 platinum which has the same ptu setup as the sport. I have a drain plug but no fill hole. In place of the fill hole is a temp sensor with heat shield. I tried to drain the ptu and fill using the vent tube, but no matter what I tried I couldn’t remove the stock vent tube to access the nipple. So my question is this: has anyone removed the temp sensor and filled through the fill hole? If so, is there enough room or do I have to remove the cat?
