Our 2006 Expedition is coming due for its 1st Transmission Fluid
change. I have a Pickup truck (different make) where I do the
transmission fluid change myself, so I want to go ahead and do it
myself on the Expedition as well. Unfortunately, there is no repair
manual available yet for the 2006 model, except the shop manual which
is quite expensive and if I can avoid buying it, then I would prefer
to do so and wait till a Haynes manual is available.
Therefore my question here if there is anything special to consider
when doing the transmission fluid change on the 2006 Expedition.
Is the filter accessible when I drop the pan? Is there a special tool
needed? What is the torque for the filter screws and the pan bolts?
Anything else to be aware of? I googled around, but nobody has
documented this procedure yet.
Thanks in advance.
