on some of the newer cars they dont have dipsticks they have a plug near the pan that you have to pull on the trans to check the fluid level and to fill it there is a cap hidden on top of the trans by all the stuff you have to try to bend a funnel around to get in it. dont you love the engineers

Draining the system is easy,,It can be messy,, loosen the transmission oil pan bolts slowly allowing the pan to drop down fluid will spill out ..Checking the trans fluid , The transmission and fluid must be at 80 degrees celcius..and the car raised level and remove the 10 mm threaded plug at the passenger side of the trans on the tailstock end and if fluid comes out then its at the proper level..add fluid at the red cap located on top of the trans..at the drivers side....good luck

Transmission fluid does not have to deal with nearly the number of problems engine oil has to, with heat, water, acids, grit, etc., so it is not at all critical. In the old days, Ford always had a different fluid because they used different material for seals. But these days the all the fluids sold are great.
As to how much, that depends. There will only be about 4 quarts in the pan and transmission, but the total is more than twice that, and it can very anywhere in between, depending on how much fluid drains down from the torque convertor. It has a little flap that is supposed to stop drainage, but it always leaks down slowly anyhow. So there is never any set amount. You just have to estimate how much came out, put that much in to start, and keep checking and adding, with the engine running.

You need to open the oil pan under neath the transmission, once done you can see the oil filter and dismantle it very easily. Good luck
