How do I check level of transmission fluid correctly and add what's needed
You have to warm up your truck and leave it running. On the back of the engine you'll see the dipstick in a long tube that goes to the transmission. You check that with the engine warm and running. The ATF should be in the crosshatched marked area on the dipstick. Fluid should be a bright red. You need a funnel and the correct ATF fluid for your truck. If the fluid is dark red, recommend fuid and filter change...(very messy). If it's amber or darker, you need it checked.
