btw for checking it...if its an auto sadly you don't get a dipstick (thanks ford)..
as for actually changing it. if it's a 5 speed at least in my old GT ('04) the easiest way to fill it was by pull the shifter out and pouring into the top of the trans. i don't know if s197s can do the same
I almost didnt buy mine because of the dipstick issue,,I think thats crazy,,but you can get a pan with a dipstick on the 05 06 models,,I think from AM

If your just doing a filter and refill,,I would do it now,,If you drive her hard I would change the fluid around 30000,,your only taking out about 5,, 6 quarts,,so I would change it more often,,
