First go to the part store and have them check for codes on the computer. Check spark plug and wires. Hook up a timing light to each spark plug wire and see if the light skips. If so then change coil packs.

You have NO reason to top off ANY fluids,if you think about it. If you had a leak,you would repair it. Fluids don't get consumed. You can do whatever you want,it is your vehicle. On the LS and most fords the instructions are on the bottom of the trans oil pan. The fill,is the plug on the tail housing. You have,to have the correct filler container and a compressor,to blow it in, or make up one. Mercon V -on the fluid. You have to put the car on 4 jack stands,to get under it, and better know where to support it. I have a 2004 LS and it isn't very easy to work on. I assume you have issues,or the trans shop wouldn't have been mentioned. The solenoid trans pack,fail on these, as well as the TPS,EGR,and many Ignition coils. Change/flush the Power Steering Fluid. Regular Mercon, not V. Don't forget the Cabin Filter,under the plastic wiper cowl cover,pass side. Gas filter behind driver side wheel well, plastic cover,remove tire first. Push on release with fingers,don't pry up with screw driver?

SOURCE: Where is the dipstick to
Check the automatic transaxle fluid level at least every 15,000 miles or 12 months. The dipstick can be found on the left (driver) side of the engine compartment. The fluid level should be checked only when the transaxle is hot (normal operating temperature). The transaxle is considered hot after about 20 miles of highway driving.
Fig. 2: The dipstick is easy to read and well marked. Do not add if level is in the crosshatch area

Drive the car for several miles or until the engine has reached its normal temperature, as indicated by the temperature gauge. Position the vehicle on a flat surface, shift the transmission to the "Park" position and apply the parking brake.Raise the hood and allow the vehicle to idle.
Withdraw the transmission's dipstick. The dipstick features a T-shaped handle with the words "Trans. Fluid" stamped into the top of the handle.Wipe the dipstick clean of any transmission fluid with a clean shop rag. As the vehicle is driven, transmission fluid may splash onto the dipstick, resulting in a false fluid level reading.Insert the dipstick into its tube until the handle rests securely against the top of the tube, then withdraw the dipstick and note the fluid level. The fluid level should be at or just below the "Warm Full" mark stamped into the dipstick. If the level is low, fluid must be added.Add Mercon V transmission fluid in small increments to avoid overfilling the transmission. Insert a funnel into the top of the dipstick tube, then pour the transmission fluid into the funnel, periodically checking the fluid level on the dipstick.
