    PA68404 - Performance Automatic Locking Transmission Dipsticks is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No regrets. Awesome upgrade to Expedition I keep my vehicles forever and I could not keep an eye on transmission fluid level. This changes that. I now can easily check color and level of fluid in seconds. Love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fills a definite need This is a well made product that I most heartily recommend for any Ford 6R60 or 80 transmission not equipped with a transmission fill tube and dipstick. There are two elements of the design I would recommend revising, but Lokar has a good product and will probably not do so. However I will list both. 1. The adaptor is round and has a super smooth shiny surface with no way to grasp it to snug it down. This could be resolved simply by making the piece from hex bar stock. It would add slightly to manufacturing cost due to the additional time required for polishing, but given the somewhat high cost of the product already I think it could be absorbed with minimal pain. 2. The adaptor would be better if it had a groove, for the seal, trepanned into the mating surfact where it meets the transmission. You have to use your original plug seal and it tends to "mush out" when installed. I suspect this adaptor is made on a c/nc machine so this would be a piece of cake. I have designed and manufactured in the past so I know whereby I speak. It would be great if Lokar would include an instruction sheet with the kit. It is not rocket science to install it, but there are a couple of wrinkles that could be avoided with a few instructions. One is to pull the top hat seal from the tube and install it in the adaptor then insert the tube into the seal. Secondly, route the tube between the floorboard and the oxy sensor. This keeps it at the maximum distance from the cat. The tube has a bit of a memory curve to it where it was slightly rolled up for shipment and by keeping this curve toward the floorboard it provides a natural positioning of the tube. Can't speak for all Fords, but for my Expedition this was the best route. This is an attractive component that adds to the underhood appearance and does not detract, in any way, unless you are a stock appearance purist. One thing I do not undersatnd is the cost disparity between the F150/Expedition kit and the Mustang kit for the 6R transmissions. 90 bucks for a few more inches of tube and dipstick kind of rankles. To sum it up, I like it. I definitely would not burn the back of my hand or wrist intentionally for any amount of money, but did so trying to access the original dipstick, so the somewhat high price is worth it. Hats off to Lokar.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what Ford didn't Easy 10 minute or so install. Looks good, nice quality. Price is why I didn't give it 5 stars.

    Will this a s197 Mustang with a 6r80? More specifically a 2013 auto gt.

    Asked by: Lv24
    The #PA68401 is a few inches shorter making it more suitable for cars like your Mustang.
