Should be even with the filler plug on the side of the case.

Page 285 in the manual.

Ok, is that located under the truck on the transmission it self? I was looking for a dip stick or so under the hood to check the fluid level for the tranny.

it has no dipstick. You have to crawl under the truck with a 3/8 ratchet and pull the upper plug to check the level. Usually labeled FILL. Fluid should be right at plugs threads.

Try the wrecking yard. Its possible the dealer may be able to order one but chances are slim

F6TZ-7A020-GA is the part number it took me almost a year to find one. they are discontinued. Best bet is finding a parts truck somewhere.
