2002 Explorer Trans Drain/Fill
Okay, I am pretty certain I been losing some trans fluid. I've been thru this in the past so know the drill.
My issue is I am unable to get the fill plug open so it looks like I have to pull the full drain/fill plug. Simple enough but I what I am finding for a replacement doesn't seem to match what is in there.
This is for a 2002 Explorer with 4.6L V8
What I am finding is this one.
I got one, and while the outer bolt size is the same, the diameter of the fill plug in the center is different than the existing one. It is obvious my fill adapter will not fit this. While I could probably find a fitting to fit it, what I don't know is if the drain threads will match or if it will yield the same fluid depth.
It also appears the fill plug on this one is pretty loose and I can't see how it makes a seal. It seems the threads go down and then just stop.
Does anyone know what the story is on this? Can it be used? Is there a different one I need to get?
