SOURCE: Tip stick for transmission
It does not have a dipstick.To check the fluid trans fluid has to be warm then you take the allen screw out of plug in pan, see 1st pick and you should have a steady drip from the hole. If you have to add fluid you would need the special tool shown in second pick and a tool to pump fluid in.

The best way to change it is to flush it out You can do it yourself, but I do not recommend. A shop that is good like a Monro or Firestone usually charges about 100 bucks to flush and that includes the fluid. If you do it yourself, you will save about 60 dollars, but you risk damage to your radiator.
you will need a hose and an adapter. you back out the lower, or upper cooler line for your trans, whichever is the easiest to get to, (Some trucks have an auxiliary engine oil cooler, but make sure you are flushing the trans lines) put the adapter into the rad where you removed the line, and put a hose from each one down into a bucket. Have about 14 qt's of ford trans fluid ready. Put the funnel into the trans dip stick, and start the engine. pour the qts into the dipstick tube while the old fluid is pumped into the bucket. When you have about two gallons pumped into the bucket shut the engine off and reattach the line into the radiator. start up the engine and check your level. Fill with additional fluid if needed.
note: some say you should drop the pan. two things, you only change half the fluid when you do it that way, and second if you need to change the filter because it is clogged, it is too late for the transmission. The filter is only there to protect the valve body, not keep the fluid clean.
Hope this helps

looking under the hood on left side of the engine you should see a dipstick tube pull out the stick similar to the oil stick except its tube is wider,once you have it out look at the tip of the stick it has the marks in which the fluid has to be within.

The fluid level and fill is on the transmission itself, small plug on the drivers side. There is no dipstick for checking transmission fluid level.
