Some transmissions have drain plugs. On some transmissions, you loosen the bolts and fluid spills over the side.

there is a drain plug on the side of the trans. you will need to open the drain plug and use a hose and hand vaccume to remove the old fluid. make sure you get the proper gear oil. then replace the fluid. this is on a manual transmission though i am not sure offhand how to do the auto trans. any decent service manual should tell you and you can get one for around 30 bucks. well worth the investment.

if you want to DIY, go under the car and look the "screw" with a square indention. loosen that and the fluid should come out, that or that is the fill plug and only FILL IT UP TO THAT LINE.
