The normal process for filling the transmission would be through the dipstick tube. This will normally be located on the back side of the engine, near the firewall (rearmost part of engine compartment). Check the fluid first with the engine at normal temperature, while running, and in park. If the fluid is low, fill it to the required level with the manufacturer's recommended fluid type. Use caution to not over-fill.
Be wary, some of the transmissions Ford placed in the Explorers do not have a dipstick tube. These transmissions were designed to be sealed when manufactured. Should any problems arise with the transmission, service or overhaul will be required by either the dealership or a qualified transmission repair facility.
