    I get my plugs from NAPA because they stock them, but I would think most any FLAPS should be able to order them.

    Or you can get Ford p/n F8UZ-7A194-AA...otherwise known as the "U-Haul" pan...it's identical to the factory pan, but with a drain plug already installed.

    So speaking of transmissions I noticed a small leak on this plastic piece with a cap screw. It was loose so I tightend it. What's it's purpose? Drain hole?

    please chime in, thank you

    Looks like an opening for a speedometer drive gear / cable.

    That's the port for the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) that in 2003 was eliminated from transmission tail housing (speedometer now gets speed data from PCM).

    Rather than cast a different tail housing, a plug was used to block-off the port.

    Hi,

    Time for a fluid change at 26k miles.

    Does anyone know if the "U-Hall Pan" is standard capacity or extra capacity?
    If it is extra capacity, does it present an extra possibility for damage by a rock or the like?


    Edit, After re-reading RF's post he says "...identical..." to factory pan so no problem.

    Thanks,
    Jay
