Flush it with BG product. They disconnect the transmission cooler lines from the transmission to the radiator and connect a BG machine that contains replacement fluid. Your car's transmission pump forces the old fluid out of the transmission and the torque converter and the BG machine replaces it with the new fluid. There are 2 fluids that BG uses to complete the process. First fluid is a cleaner and the 2nd fluid is a conditioner for the new transmission fluid. DO NOT just drain the transmission fluid, but do a flush.

Sorry, I do not know. You just pull a drain plug to drain the transmission.

Your fluid must have shown sign of overheating for him to suggest that. Good/smart mechanic. Need more like him.
