4.5 Quarts. But put 4 quarts in first, then start up the car and let it idle then check fluid and add fluid if needed.

It really should be changed every 30,000 miles. It is cheaper than a transmission overhaul.

Low of A/T fluid, clogged filter, or worn bands.Low of A/T fluid, clogged filter, or worn bands.

You do this by pouring transmission fluid into the tube that your transmission dipstick is in. To check for fluid level, drive the car for a few miles to make sure everything is warmed up, then park on a level spot, with the engine running, put the transmission in drive, then in reverse, then in park. With the engine still running, remove the dipstick and wipe it clean, and reinsert it, then remove it again and check the fluid level.

Some say that only a Ford dealer could change fluid. Most all new vehicles are sealed and need to be changed every 30,000 miles. However, any well equipped transmission shop can service late model Ford transmissions, and usually for a lot less than the dealers charge. If you research this a bit on Google you can even find out how to do it yourself, but you would have to be a pretty good mechanic to do so. To change the transmission fluid on a Ford Explorer XLS you first have to jack up the vehicle and under the transmission pan there is a bold with a screw in the middle, you have to have a special tool to remove it, has a strange pattern. Once you remove those, if fluid flows out a bit, the level is fine, if none comes out you can stick ur finger in there to see if it gets wet, if not you have to pump transmission fluid into that hole until some fluid starts to come out..once that happens you plug it back up.

where is the fuel filter located on a 2003 ford explorer

Why don't you look it up on the vehicle manufacture manual,it won't kill you;if your that lazy then any trans fluid will do but it's recommended you use what the manual commend!

Underneath the Explorer , below the drivers door , in the frame rail

nothing , just a trim level , like XL , XLS , XLT , Eddie Bauer , Limited are different trim levels this can also mean the Microsoft exel extenstion

the difference between the two is the interior and exterior accesories, the xlt has an upgraded interior and may have exterior items that are only available on the xlt and not on the xls

There is also the possiblitly of the valve body gasket blowing out and causing loss of vacuum in the tranny. That is what happened to mine @ 100,000 miles. Transmission problems are best left to a pro. The basic thing you should concern yourself with is the transmission fluid. A higher, or lower level can cause shifting problems. Or of course, if the transmission fluid is dark or burnt, that can mean transmission problems too. But make sure the level is ok. If the fluid is ok, i'd get it inspected at a trusted transmission shop. Usually problems in transmissions start small, and if you catch them they can be remedied. Best of luck.

You can change the light bulb by this method.

.054 inch , according to

In the front passenger's footwell , by the kick panel

4 bottles (quarts) of fluid. I have a 1999 XLS, & I recently changed transmission fluid. Transmission was drained with removing coolent connection etc. (complete removal). I Dexron VI can be used, instead of the original Dexron III (original fluid - again Dexron III was a cutting edge when 98 Avalon was released!). Dexron VI has many advanges over Dexron III. Consult a knowledgeable mechanic, & use the proper Dexron VI for your vehicle.
