Explorer Trans Flush

I am going to be changin the trans fluid in my moms '04 Exploder and was wondering if there is anything special about doing this job. Is the procedure the same as our trucks? As in disconnecting the cooler return line and stuff. Any tips?

I have never flushed my transmissions (including my explorer) and have never had a problem.

I don't mean flush like a machine or anything, i think that is pointless and can actually create problems. I just wanna change out all the fluid including the TC and cooler.

I would assume it would be the same. Instead of using a separate pump, you are using the internal transmission pump...

I am going to say the theory is the same. I would go with that. Just take one line off and just keep filling while it goes out.

I've done it on several vehicles. I just pull off the easiest line I can get to and connect a rubber hose to that and run that into a bucket. Then I start the vehicle and steadily pour in new atf while watching for the old fluid to start turning the clean red. I usually stop about 1/2 way and put a couple quarts in so the trans doesn't get really low on fluid. You really need 2 people to do this if you've never done it before because it's kinda hectic when your trying to do so many things at one time.
