COULD BE LOSS OF ALL TRASMISSION FLUID, BROKEN HOSE, BLOWN PUMP,BURNT TRANSMISSION RINGS( HOW DID THE TRANNY OIL SMELL?) BURNT TRANNY FLUID OR A COMBINATION OF ANY OF THE ABOVE. IF IT JUST QUIT, YOU PROBABLY HAVE A SERIOUS PROBLEM THAT WILL REQUIRE A REBUILD OR A SALVAGE TRANSMISSION FROM A LOCAL WRECKING YARD. THE LATTER BEING THE CHEAPEST AND AT TIMES THE BETTER DEAL ALL AROUND, TIME WISE AND MONEY. VERSUS A REBUILD THAT REQUIRES NEW PARTS, BANDS, PUMP, SEALS AND ON AND ON PLUS HOURS OF LABOR TO FIX EQUALS ONE BIG BIG BILL!BEING A 2001 A TRANNY FROM A WRECKING YARD ISN'T GOING TO HAVE THAT MANY MILES ON IT EITHER SO YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIND SOME PRETTY DECENT ONES. THAT'S THE ROUTE I'D GO, BUT YOU'RE FREE TO CHOOSE EITHER CHOICE. I DON'T ENDORSE OR CONDEMN EITHER ONE, JUST POINT OUT THE GOOG AND THE WEAK IN EACH FOR YOU TO DECIDE! GOOD LUCK!

No, As Most Automatic Transmissions DO NOT have DRAIN PLUGS, You Must Remove the Transmission OIL PAN to Drain, Done this way Because When it is Drained it It Is FOR Servicing the Unit, This entails
1. Remove Pan w / Fluid And CLEAN PAN
2. Remove and Replace Trans. Filter
3. Be sure Gasket Surface IS CLEAN VERY WELL On Pan AND Transmission
4. Install Trans. PAN With Gasket Carefully
5. Refill Trans With Recommended Transmission
Type and Quantity of Automatic Transmission FLUID.
Usually Approx. 5-7 Qts.

The filter is inside the transmission. You need to take the pan off the bottom then you can replace the filter and the pan gasket.
