Your Ford has no drain plug, to change/drain the trans fluid u must remove the transmission pan, u may be able to lower fluid level with a fluid siphon pump (rated for oil) through the dipstick tube, harbor freight tools sells a pump for this purpose.

Of course you can, in any vehicule either automatic or manual, you can replace the transmission oil easily. The only thing to be sure is to have a new filter and gasket ready to replace the old ones if you have an automatic, and with a manual you usually just drain it and fill it back up since there is usually no filter or pan. And in any case, you need to know just how much oil has to go in it too so that you don't over fill and cause damage, or underfill and also cause damage. If you have no idea how much oil you need, just call up your local dealer, garage or parts store and by telling them what year and model car you have, they will be able to tell you just how much oil you need. Be sure to ask them also what TYPE of oil you need, as it's not the same oil in manual or automatic, and also even in an automatic, most fords need a special type oil, and there are also a few other models like some mitsubishis and BMW and Mercedes and the like which also sometimes need special oils.

If the transmission is over full this will happen, if the transmission overheats this will happen, check the level carefully by the instructions on the dipstick to ensure that it is filled properly. There is also a vent on the top of the transmission, a favorite home place for dirt wasps, make sure it is clean. If you think this problem is over heating, check the oil cooler for obstructions pinched lines etc., I put an external oil cooler on my transmission to provide more cooling capacity, though it is not truely neccessary. Hope this helps, let me know.

Do you know where the dipstick for the transmission is? I assume you do if you know you need to add it. That is where the fluid goes. Stick a small funnel in the hole after taking dipstick out and pour the fluid. Remember don't overfill. Transmission fluid gets bigger when heated so always check when transmission is warm. Hope I could be of some help.
