Question about 2006 Ford Mustang
Peterc759: Unfortunately, this is a procedure you are not going to be able to do your self. There are not even that many shops out side of the dealers who can do it properly without the proper special tools.
The car must be hooked up to a diagnostic monitor which can read the transmission fluid temperature. Most shops who are up to date probably own the scanner which will plug into the diagnostic port and read that information. BUT, from there the car must be put on a lift or raised up high enough and kept level, to access the transmission filler and drain plug. There is a special tool which is inserted in the transmission through the filler plug "while the engine is running and the transmission fluid has reached a certain temperature. At that point the tool is inserted to take the fluid level reading.
I hope I have answered your question even if it is not the answer you would like to have heard.
