SOURCE: transmission fluid change
More than likely, like most automatic transmissions, yours does not have an oil plug. You need to drop the transmission oil pan to drain the old oil... You need to buy a transmission filter/pan gasket kit. The filter is located on the bottom of the tranny. You will see it when you remove the pan. Replace the filter, thoroughly remove any traces of old gasket material, clean the mating surfaces, and reinstall the pan with the new gasket. Torque the pan bolts to the manufacturers spec (you should be able to get this where you buy the filter/gasket kit). Refill the transmission through the dipstick (Capacity for the Voyager is 4 quarts, make sure to use ATF Plus (Type 7176) for your particular tranny, NOT Dexron, Mercon, or generic automatic transmission fluid, Chrysler transmissions do not like any other kind and tend to fail quite quickly with the wrong fluid). Fill to the full cold level. Start the engine, move the shifter through all gear ranges, and put it back in park. Leave the engine running and refill to cold full. Drive the car for 5-10 minutes and, with the engine still running and the car in park, fill to Hot full. You should be ready to go!

Your vehicle has no transmission dip stick, here is the procedure from Lincoln.
Use a OBDII scan equipment to monitor Transmission Fluid Temperature, start the vehicle and run engine at idle until fluid temperature is between 80° to 120° F (27° to 47°C). Shift through gears slowly stopping in each gear allowing it to engage. Put in PARK position. With engine running put vehicle up on hoist level as possible. Hold the larger drain plug with a wrench and remove the small center plug. Allow the fluid to drain, making sure that the fluid is between 80° to 120° F (27° to 47°C). If the fluid comes out as a thin stream or drip, the fluid is at the correct level. Reinstall the small center plug and tighten to 7 ft. lbs. (10 Nm).

Is the fluid full enough? there should be a dipstick to tell where the level should be. Also is the belt tight enough? Wires loose?

you need to find which pulley is the belt tensioner. use a socket and a breaker bar to lift the tensioner. once the belt loosen, slide the belt off one of the pulleys close to you. then slowly release the tensioner.
