Your vehicle has no transmission dip stick, here is the procedure from Lincoln.

Use a OBDII scan equipment to monitor Transmission Fluid Temperature, start the vehicle and run engine at idle until fluid temperature is between 80° to 120° F (27° to 47°C). Shift through gears slowly stopping in each gear allowing it to engage. Put in PARK position. With engine running put vehicle up on hoist level as possible. Hold the larger drain plug with a wrench and remove the small center plug. Allow the fluid to drain, making sure that the fluid is between 80° to 120° F (27° to 47°C). If the fluid comes out as a thin stream or drip, the fluid is at the correct level. Reinstall the small center plug and tighten to 7 ft. lbs. (10 Nm).

    You will need a special fitting available from Lincoln and screw it into where the fluid level indicator was. Add new transmission fluid to a suction gun, attach the gun to the fitting and add fluid in 1/2 pint increments, wait one minute, if the fluid comes out in a thin stream or drips the level is correct. If not add another 1/2 pint.

Can I add non-slip transmission additive to Lincoln ls

Absolutely not

You don't add anything like that
to any automatic

I used to own a trans repair shop

You only use the correct fluid

If you have shift issues and I know
you do,you change the solenoid
pressure control pack,after you
change the fluid 3 or 4 times.

Change ---never flush

The ONLY THING- EVER to enter a
trans would be RED Lubgard,by
International Lubricants,avail at parts store.

You MUST,ALWAYS change trans and power
steering fluids every 30,000 miles on ALL
your vehicles,you NEVER go over 3 years
