I assume you know what your doing around cars, but you should know you have to fIrst you have to safely have the car up in the air at all 4 corners. Remove the fluid via the drain plug, remove the pan and replace the gasket and old pan. You might want to replace the trans filter while your at it, if your car has one. Then fill by removing the fill plug on the side of the transmission with a fill pump until the fluid starts coming out. Replace the plug, drop the car, warm it , go through the gears and jack it back up to recheck the fluid level.
