i agree with what timmy said, except that these trucks need the trans fluid level checked with the engine running/transmission in PARK. Neutral will give you a false reading.

also, look up the spec for a full fluid change including dropping the pan and draining the converter. i always like to just fill it most of the way up before starting it so the trans isn't starved for fluid at all when you first start it.

and that dipstick tube is long, it's going to take a long time for the fluid to drain down, so you will get bogus readings due to the fluid still draining down the sides of the filler tube. thats another reason why i look up the spec and dump most of the ATF in before i do my final top off and fluid check. saves a lot of time.
