I have an Olds Achieva 96, which uses the same platform as Grand Am.The way to change Transmission Fluid is to take off the bottom drain pan, about 20 bolts all around it. While you're at it, change the filter and gasket too, which are sold in Autozone as a kit.

Further - refilling fluid is a chore. Refill is directly below the master cylinder on the 4cylinder. You have to move a wiring harnass to see a red cap. Just unscrew it and wala. Also, need to have a funnel with a long spout @ 18" at least - preferrable flexable to manuver through everything. Fill it up.
