For most models, the trans dipstick is on the passengers side in back by the Firewall. The later models used a stub on the trans housing which needed a 1/2 socket and had the dipstick similar in length to a Power steering dipstick. The latter needed to be accessed from underneath the vehicle.

For these, it may be useful to have a Quick change oil place to check it. This is done by request as the bolted-units are considered maintenance free.

mark, you should see about pulling the engine light code. you may get a code like 1756 or 0700 but you need to see whats there and reference fords chart. it can be a simple bad transmission position switch or a big headache. either way it starts with pulling the code. there are code readers at parts stores to buy or you may be able to get the code from a repair shop but they might charge you. i purchased mine for about $100 and use it often.

Mke sure your battery is sending black wire to the chassis with a multi meter. One probe on - on battery and other probe on chassis. Or one pone on + and other probe on opposing side of main fuse. Should read a continuity reading, if not, tighten the earth strap or change the main fuse

it sounds like you may have two issues... Your difference in temperature inside is most likely caused by a bad temperature door actuator. The poor cooling issue is either an incorrect charge in the A/C system(i know you said it was full but im not sure how you determined that) a weak a/c compressor, or a restriction in the A/C system.

Yes when you park on an incline you should always put your emergency brake on before shifting to park. Then whenyou are ready to move again put you car in gear before disengaging the emergency brake. this will remove the stress from the transmission.
