Hello. was this oil, or transmission fluid? Have you checked your oil level? Trans fluid level? This sounds as if it may be a transmission cooler line..
Your truck uses mercon LV, which I have seen turn very dark in as little as 20k miles. The fluid level on your transmission can be checked but you are correct in that there is not a traditional dip stick like you would be used to seeing. There is a fill plug on the transmission just above the pan near the exhaust pipe which has a fluid level indicator built into it. You would need to screw the plug out and look at the indicator with the transmission hot to check the fluid. Here is a link to the transmission lines. Your truck doesn't have an oil cooler, so no oil cooler lines.
Hi Robert. Did you get this taken care of?
Ok. If you need anything, let me know.
