Your 2004 Explorer does NOT have a conventional transmission fluid dipstick to check level with. It uses what's called a two stage drain/fill plug. If you remove the entire plug, you end up draining the pan. So, to remove the fill plug, use a 7/8" backup wrench holding the drain plug, while loesening to Torx TX-30 inner plug. Use ONLY Ford Mercon V fluid.
