If you look in your owners manual you should find your answer.

The transmission fill is on the bottom - that drain plug you removed is a two piece plug, the inner section comes out and you put a tool from OTC ( http://www.amazon.com/OTC-6604-Trans...8116814&sr=1-1 ) to pump fluid up into the transmission. You can do it with a ****** brass connector since you need to do it right away - take the plug down to Auto Zone or the like and find one that will screw in.

You will need to put a hand pump on a quart of transmission fluid bottle and pump it up into the trans. Keep doing it until fluid starts to come back out. Put the center plug back in and start the car up. Let it run for a bit, move it through the gears. Once it is warmed up, get back under the car (watch the hot parts!), put your filler back in the center and pump more fluid up until it starts to drain back again.

It will probably take about 7 quarts.

Ideally you pump fluid up into the trans while it is running, but if you are on jack stands that isn't a good idea. So take it to your friendly dealer and ask them to double check and top off the transmission.

I believe that there is a write up on how to do the transmission fluid change here, or over at www.mustangcollective.com

Weird, not sure why the site would censor that word - the censored word was just

Do you have a manual or an auto?

When I change the tranny fluid on the manual, rather then spend the money on the pump, alot of which dont work to well, I let gravity do the job for me. Get 3ft of .5" hose and a funnel that will fit in the hose. Run the hose from the engine bay to the fill hole, careful not to melt it on the cats/ exhaust if theyre hot. just pour the fluid in untill you hear it dripping into the pan.

I dont know if that would work on the auto, but it does on a manual and its a thousand times easier than dicking with a hand pump

Won't work on the automatic. The fill port is on the bottom of the pan so you have to pump up to get it in the transmission. Gravity won't do it unfortunately.
