Does anyone know if our E4OD's have the port for this or was that introduced in the 4R100?

If yours is the same as my 99 tranny, there will be a drain plug right above the tranny linkage on the drivers side. Unscrew that plug and the temp probe will screw right in its place. You will probably only lose a drop or two of fluid. Hope this helps.

No need to drill the pan just remove the plug as stated above. Its a pressure port same size as the sender.
