I have looked a few times for a level dip stick, was told the trans may be sealed, but I see everyone talking about trans maintenance. I have around 140k ( 2013 Lariat )
Question,
Where the hell is the dip stick ?

Man, have you searched google or youtube?

passenger side. You need a 19mm wrench i think it was. Pull pan, clean magnet and put in new filter. Fill cold to between the a and b hatch mark.

I just did mine, got the fluid from the local dealership, mine took mercon LV. I would highly suggest some sort of vaccum pump, pull the dipstick out, suck out a few quarts before you drop the pan, makes for a lot cleaner job. I believe the one I got was like $20 on amazon, I believe I searched for pneumatic brake fluid bleeder. When you drop the pan it should take about 7 - 7.5 quarts back. I also did mine twice as I wasn't sure if it had ever been done and I had 155k on it. I dropped pan, refilled, drove truck around town to get warmed up, dropped pan again and changed filter and refilled again.

You can do it all at home. None of it is very difficult. Visit this guy and he has all the videos you'll need: https://www.youtube.com/user/FordTechMakuloco
I bought most of my Motorcraft fluids from Rock Auto and to do front/rear diffs, transmission fluid & filter and transfer case as well as Permatex for the rear diff cover it was about $140. I also bought a transmission pan with a drain, from Dorman, and it was like $30.
