FYI-5r55s tranny fill

To all who own the famous sealed transmission Explorers. If you chose to change transmission filters, solenoid block,valve body or any other major component, it may be a good idea to have a servicable spare drain plug handy! On instict before replacing my plug I made sure this (inner fill plug) was servicable before replacement on the pan and found that the inner fill plug had seized inside of the outer drain plug. With it on some models being a T-30 Torx head, there wasn't a lot of give to it. I would certainly recommend having a new one to replace it with if your one of the unlucky ones like myself. It beats rebolting it all to the transmission pan only to find that you can't budge the inner fill plug!!! BTW...It's not an expensive part at most dealerships $10-$15 tops.
