Contrary to what the manual says, there is in fact a transmission dip stick present on the 6R80. Thanks to GasGasMan for this excellent drawing, here's where you can find it; its located underneath the truck, directly above the transmission fluid pan on the passenger side:



FYI: According to the 2010 Raptor Supplement, the automatic transmission fluid and filter should be changed at 60k mile intervals.

Does the Raptor come with a special book besides the 2010 F-150 owners manual?

So is this here you can service it as well? Or is it just for checking the fluid levels?

You might have to pump it in.
I think when you get it changed at a garage, they pump it in with one of the cooler hoses.

You add fluid here with a pump/hose. The hand pump auto parts stores sell that screw to the top of the bottle will work or anything with a hose to reach up in there. You have to drop the pan to remove fluid.

How many quarts does it takes if I drain it by removing the pan and refill it from the fluid level check hole with a pump?
