According to the Owner's Manual, this procedure has to be done by the dealer. There is no dipstick.

Here's a picture of the ST transmission. The dipstick is under the orange plug shown on the driver's side of the transmission case. Most owners aren't going to be interested in going under their Explorer to check the transmission fluid level, ergo Peter's post.

Check while running or not? I assume there is a warm and cold level on some sort of mini dipstick there under that cap.....

Here's a picture of what it looks like although this isn't the exact part. Can't help you on the proper procedure for checking. :dunno:

From what I gathered. Check when trans is at normal operating temp. While running. Small capped dipstick on Pass side, set fluid to the B level. Highly recommend to do on a lift.

I'm very interested in the trans, ptu and rear diff oil check and replace. On the 15' escape they under filled all from the factory. So you'd get some odd behavior early on.
