If this is an automatic transmission, the pan must be removed in order for the fluid to drain. In addition, there may be a plug in the torque converter to facilitate fluid removal from it. When removing the pan for a fluid change, the standard procedure is to remove all but a few of the bolts holding the pan on, leaving several at opposite corners finger-tight. When ready with a pan in place to catch the fluid, these are carefully removed in turn, allowing the pan to drop down at one corner, draining the fluid. Once most of the pouring has stopped, the few remaining bolts are slowly removed, allowing removal of the pan and access to the filter. NOTE: If all you need to do is drain a small amount of fluid due to overfill, it may be possible to use a length of tubing fed down through the filler tube and siphon it out. jb

Do NOT use transmission fluid in your power steering. It is designed for automatic transmissions, and a few rare manual transmissions only.
