I need to change the transmission oil and filter as well as the rear differential fluid on my 2008 Explorer Sport Trac, rear wheel drive; 4.0L V6; according to the door code "V", it has the 5R55S transmission and the 3.73 rear differential ( door code 46). I've changed transmission oil and filters on my previous vehicles; however, this will be the first time with a transmission without a dipstick. I know how to drain the oil, but what do I need/do regarding refilling the transmission?
Also, with the rear differential, do I remove the cover to drain the fluid or is there a drain plug?
Any help and pictures will be most appreciated.
