I would not reccomend changing transmission fluid yourself. do not do it!!!

to change transmission fluid and filter, you have to take the tranny pan off the bottom of the tranny and it will make a mess of fluid. then you have to carefully remove the old tranny pan gasket, which is best done with a special machine. if you fail to remove all of the gasaket, or damage the lip of the pan while removing the gasket, then the new tranny seal will leak, and the tranny will not hold fluid. tranny fluid and filter needs to be done in a professional shop where they have the correct equiptment.

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.
