A transmission flush is a bad idea. A complete drain and refill is a good idea. A Google search will give detailed instructions.

Why would a Toyota automatic transmission fail 80 miles after a transmission flush?

My research (and experience) indicates that on higher mileage (80,000+ miles) Toyota transmissions, if the fluid has not been changed previously, the friction caused by the fine metal particles in old/dirty transmission fluid help make the transmission work. As metal parts wear down this extra friction becomes necessary to transfer power. Putting in slick new clean fluid cleans out the particles and causes the transmission to slip soon after. So you may not want to touch higher mileage Toyota transmissions if you don't know the fluid flush history or if it was not routinely flushed.

How do you change the automatic transmission filter on Toyota Celica 2000?

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.
