To change it you need to drop the transmission pan and drain also change the filter. If your gasket has brass inserts in it you can reuse it if not you can buy one. Then to check it there is a plug on the side of the trans that you pull then you fill till it dribbles out when it's full. I cant remember the location of the plug off the top of my head.
