All the info I can find says it's by the oil pan drain plug. (Automatic) But there's also a plug towards the front of car, Driver side, just below the transmission coolant lines where they enter the block. Is this the correct plug?

the picture enclosed is the view if you are standing on the passenger side of the car. It is called in this picture Fluid Level Screw. I think a 10 mm socket is what you would need to remove it. The transmission fluid must be in operating temperature and the engine must still be running before removing the fluid level screw in order to check the level. Unless you can fit under the vehicle you would have to put each wheel on jack stands, so that the car will be level.
