Where to begin? There are several things and areas that can leak oil or cause an oil leak. Super easy first, when changing the oil if it becomes overfilled it can seep from the seals, the dipstick, out the fill tube, through the gaskets, etc. This can be a permanent issue even if it only happened once or twice and the only repair is to replace the affected seals. Several other options for a variety of vehicles are as follows. Rear main, timing cover, crank seals, cam seals, valve covers, oil pan gasket or puncture, crank sensor, oil pressure gauge fittings, water pump mount (engine specific), head gasket, etc. Also transmission or transfer oil can push past bad seals or gaskets and bad transfer bearings can promote leakage in some models. The amount of oil leaked and location are key to identifying causes. If you are a "do it yourselfer" I recommend putting the vehicle up on ramps, wiping off excess oil with a cloth, then pressure washing (with degreaser for embedded road grime etc.) After the vehicle completely dries slide underneath with a very bright drop light and inspect thoroughly for drips or seepage. Always use proper safety precautions! If you cannot find the leak, start the engine and let it idle for a few minutes then shut it off, allow it to cool and re-inspect. There are several vacuum, gasket, valves, bent cam, and many other internal issues that can cause leaks as well. Hope you find this helpful, feel free to narrow it down for more focused help on this issue.

When the car is first started the engine idles

If the throttle plate is closing completely, then this seems to be temperature dependent. Probably the intake manifold gasket. These GM engines were extremely prone to that. When the engine warms up, metal expands, and seals the leak. A good mechanic can check out the usual other culprits: cracked vacuum hoses, bad pcv or egr valve, idle air control motor, etc. Then, maybe a smoke test, when the engine is cold.
There was a giant class action suit on these engines for that problem, but payments ran out 2008. So, use high quality gaskets, (FelPro is excellent) the newly revised torquing procedure, and precoated bolts from GM. Don't use the GM orange coolant. It dissolves the gaskets. Good luck

What do i need to do to change the transmition fluid

Buy a new gasket and screen. Get under there with a bucket and unscrew all the bolts holding the tranny pan up. Try to let one corner down first, so it drains into the bucket. It will be real messy. Put in the new screen and gasket. Be sure the bolt holes on the pan are flat. They get pushed in if tightened too much. Bolt up the pan again, tightening the bolts evenly and not too tight. Add six quarts of tranny fluid. Run it and check for leaks. That's it.
