Smile stickshift tranny fluid service

Hello I'm going to do my tranny fluid/filter service will be my first with this new truck of mine, is it the same ordeal as working with the auto trannys on these 6.0? internal filter and external? also I want to know the best fluid to put in this may sound stupid but i did a brief look in the engine where is the tranny filler tube? lol ALSO on a side note my truck engine/undercarriage is absolutely disgusting, lots of dirt whats the best way to wash the engine? undercarriage I'm not worried its going to rain all week but engine I would like to touch up theres dirt everywhere

Standard trannys don't have filler tubes. there should be a drain bolt on the bottom of your tranny and a fill bolt on the left side a believe is where it is... And i don't think they have filters....

How often do u need to check ur tranny fluid? and how do u do it cuz it don't got a dipstick... cuz in my truck *(idk if this is the problem) but, when i shift into third, if i don't wait for the rpms to go down, and a like 5 seconds before i shift, it makes a wierd whining/squeling noise like something slowing down as it goes into gear... idk what it is, and was wonderin if i need more tranny fluid???

it's supposed to be changed every 55k miles i think? But i'm NOT positive. if you check your owners manual it will tell you. to check it just crawl up under your truck. remove the FILL bolt from the side of your tranny and dip your finger down in there and pull it out and look at the fluid. if you stick your finger down in there and can't get any fluid on it then your low.... fill to the bottom of the hole where the fill bolt goes to top it off. but best bet is to just drop the drain bolt and replace all the fluid in there....

And your welcome hank
