Most GM Transmissions don't have a drain plug. Need to slowly remove pan bolts starting at one corner to remove fluid. Gasket will need to be replaced once you pop the pan off.

How to flush ford falcon 4,0L engine automatic 1996 model transmission


I'm not familiar with your vehicle, however the principle is the same for virtually all auto transmissions.
Get underneath your vehicle and look on the transmission fluid pan. Somewhere at the lowest point you will see a drain plug.

The plug may either be a nut or a recessed square, or even a hex recess.

Undo the drain plug and allow the transmission fluid to drain into a large plastic dish/container.

The link below shows you generic images of drain/filler plugs. It is not your vehicle:
auto transmission filler plug Google Search

When drained, replace the plug.

Then look for the filler plug. It will be higher up on the transmission case than the drain plug. Again, it may be a nut or a recessed square/hex.

You then have to use bottles of transmission fluid to refill the transmission. It can be messy ... The small bottles of transmission fluid - they have small tubes attached - can be very awkward to turn upside down when you're under the vehicle.

Alternatively, if you have a a long tube and a funnel you can use it to refill the transmission via the transmission dipstick tube. It can take a while to fill it as the fluid is slow to go down the tube.

Be prepared to get transmission fluid everywhere ...

Replace the same amount of fluid that came out. Start the car and move it through its range of gears. Check the fluid level.

It's not a difficult job. The link below is an easy guide:
How to Add Transmission Fluid
The job is worth doing. It will extend the life of your transmission. Most people never bother. Transmission fluid is supposed to be changed every 20,000 miles.

Hello / I have a car maintenance workshop Question / How change Automatic oil gerbox Renault Megane 2005 Thank you


You need to get under the car, identify the transmission oil pan and look for the drain plug:

Locate the filler plug - it will be on the side of the transmission, higher up. Use bottles with spouts to fill with the correct amount of transmission fluid .. or .. possible .. fill with fresh transmission fluid via the transmission dipstick.

Where is the location on a 1994 honda civic ex that i would fill the manual transmission with gear oil?


Hello,
Manual transmissions have a fill plug and a drain plug on the side of the transmission. The fill plug is a little above the drain plug. Pull the fill plug and fill the transmission until the transmission fluid just barely seeps out and re-plug the transmission. That is the proper way to fill it. You will need a long stem funnel to give you the room you need to fill it. Your transmission requires a 10W30 weight motor oil, just like your engine. If you have a little time and 3 or 4 quarts of oil laying around you can pull the fill plug first and THEN the drain plug and let all the oil drain out. Then plug the transmission and re-fill it with fresh oil and this is a transmission flush for your transmission. You just saved $70 shop charge doing this. I say pull the fill plug first and THEN the drain plug because the last thing you want to do is pull the drain plug first and then find out the fill plug has welded itself and won't come out and now you can't fill the transmission. Fill plug first always.
Regards, Tony

no drain plug, no car or truck has had a drain plug for decades, reason? they want the filter changed with the fluid, so they make you pull the trans pan to drain the fluid, one very messy job.
