Hey Guys,

Couldn't stomach the dealership quote of 448 to change my PTU fluid in my 17 explorer ecoboost...  Here's my video, it wasn't that tough at all!

Good video. You think you may lose some fluid through the vent if it heats up?

A piece of aluminum foil over the exhaust pipe will save you some grief next time

FWIW, you can get Amsoil 75w-140 in a bag and just pop the tubing onto the end of the nozzle on the bag and squeeze. Skip the transfer pump altogether.  Once about half empty fill from another bag or conventional jug.
