you can peform the oil change rather easily on your truck. just make sure you have a flat pan or some other form or plate to deflect the oil into your catch pan. then just remove the old filter and make sure the gasket is removed as well. then wipe done the filter baseplate to make sure it will have clean contact with the new filter gasket. lube the gasket on the new oil filter and just tighten the filter until it's snug. all is left to do is add oil which should be five quarts. i would recommend 10w30 oil if there's more than 100,000 miles on it and either a high mileage oil or a semi synthetic oil. . steve

NOTE: Most Ford Explorers (including '97 specifically as titled here) require 5W30 not 10W30, which is most common in passenger vehicles.

I believe that is in the center stack of the dash and that the radio has to be removed if you need to change the GEM

Drive to Ford dealer. Tell them you want the oil changed. Sit in waiting area and read a magazine. When they tell you your Explorer is ready, pay bill and drive off.
