You have to remove your glove box and it is behind there. Here is a picture of where it is. This particular picture is from a 4 X 4 so if you don't have that it won't have the 4X4 part. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

It is inside the left frame rail below the drivers door, you need a special tool to release the filter from the line. filter just snaps into its metal holder. Good luck and you can get the fuel line quick release tool at most Auto Parts store.

Generally when the OD light flashes its stating that theres something wrong with the transmission.
Explorers were notorious for their transmissions having problems after wear and tear. Being 10 years old i wouldn't doubt that the valve body is going on it. I'd get the valve body checked out.
Be weary, if the car starts feeling like it cant accelerate but the RPM is increasing, that means your transmission is going bad.
Check Fluids for volume and color. If it looks really dirty or low, i'd add some fluid or get it flushed and see if that helps. If it doesn't the transmission will need to have its trouble code checked and have valve body looked at.
