I just finished a flush and fill on my 2011 5.0 and wanted to offer three observations: 1 - Do not think the final step of bringing the car to operating temp, trans at 95* and removing fill plug to check level and add more fluid can be skipped - I tried it and was wrong. During my simple drain and fill I thought I had added enough fluid in while the truck was off, it looked liked I had filled in close to what I had drained out right? Wrong - when I removed the fill plug while the truck was on and trans at 95* temp I had no fluid dripping out like when the truck was off and cold. I proceeded to add over 3 quarts of fluid! This is after thinking how much more could it hold, I've already filled it until it started dripping out - that is cold, the last step of checking and adding while the truck is running is not a step to skip. 2 - For all those that say don't change the fluid on an older vehicle with a lot of miles, my truck has 164,000 miles and the old tranny fluid looked like dirty motor oil. I used Ford Mercon SP fluid and the trans feels incredible now, it's admittedly a short sample size but that's where I'm at. 3 -Damn that exhaust is running close to where you have to put your hands to reach the fill plug and operate a hand pump to add more fluid, be careful and take your time before launching on this job. Although I didn't buy the new pan and filter and swap those out I want to thank those on this thread who did and took the time to illustrate the parts and the job, that's why these forums are invaluable, I tip my cap to you.
