Question about 1996 Pontiac Grand Am
Loosen the rear bolts slowly on the pan. Start there and loosen towards the front and let the fluid drain until you can get the pan completly off and drain the rest of the fluid

With no dipstick, you should find a plug,( 7/16",under vehicle to see it) on the backside of casing near right axle, for checking/filling fluid, but other than that, remove the pan. Might want to do filter as well, when pan is off, if it hasn't been done in a while.

Heres the best solution....take off bolts around transmission pan. drain fluid, put in new seal and filter then bolt back up to torque specs. step 2. add fluid start engine. your next job is to drain the converter so you have fresh and clean fluid throughout the whole tranny. so heres how you do that. the bottom transmission line enters your radiator at the bottom this is the "retun line". loosen this line up and get a clean piece of hose that slips over the line snuggly. you will need about 4 feet of clear hose (can get at autozone or lowes or home depot) and a bucket/clear jug (about 2 -3 gallon clear jug. next ask a buddy to start the engine put their foot on the break and put tranny into drive while holding the foot on the brake. the torque converter will start pumping the old/black fluid out. watch the fluid till it starts turning a fresh red color. when that happens you have now flushed the system totally. during this procedure you may have to add fluid as the torque converter continues to pump out old fliud. when fluid starts running red then stop car engine put back in park and reconnect lower tranny line to radiator. you just saved yourself 200-300 bucks. a real easy job but can be a little messy. i just did this to my sons grand am. good luck!!!
