2 options...remove transmission pan and change filter and gasket along with 1/2 to 3/4 of the fluid or take in to a shop to have them use a machine that exchanges ALL the fluid. I do not recommend changing trans fluid if it has been more than 75,000 miles since your last fluid exchange unless you are currently having problems with your trans.

It's ok to change trans fluid, have the pan taken off and get a pan gasket,pickup screen, and fresh dexron fliud.......don't flush it and don't exchange it....just a plain old fashioned fluid change

have you changed fluid and filter in any other car? buy filter it comes with rubber gasket. git big drain pan. bag of rags. drop pan off transmission.. fluid will start coming out before all pan bolts are out if not leave 4 in the corners and pry with flathead. clean out pan with rags.scrape off old gasket material. wipe clean with rags. change filter.install pan. put gasket on pan using bolts push them threw rubber holds them in. don't over tighten and kill pan gasket.
