Hello 
i have a question about adding levels in Revit MEP 
i open Mechanical template and when i add levels it only shows in Mechanical Discipline and i can only create floor plan view in Mechanical Discipline
when i open Plumbing elevations it shows the levels but i can't create a floor plane view for the new levels in Plumbing Discipline 
i only can do it if i uncheck the ( do not duplicate exiting views ) box
how i can make floor plan view for the new levels in Plumbing Discipline without duplicating the view ???
or i should dublicting the view and change the discpline from properties ???

That is what I would do. Duplicate your new view and change its properties (and assign new viewtemplate if needed).

Do not think so. You would have to resort to programming, using the Revit API. However your best option would be to use project templates. Take one time to prepare a good template with (if needed) many levels and many views and you can reuse it in future projects.
