All you can do in your driveway is drop the trans pan, replace the trans filter, replace the trans pan gasket, install pan (no gasket sealer needed or required!) and refill what fluid drained out in the process which is aprox half of the fluid the trans holds. Take it to a trans shop if you want a complete fluid change. They will have the equipment to do a trans flush.
Is it a manual or automatic gearbox? Both the automatic and the manual require Dexron/Mercon.

The trans fluid will take on a pink, milky look.
Auto trans fluid.
Depends a bit on if it's a manual or automatic transmission.On a manual trans, you'd have to ride the clutch to get it started. And you'd probably glaze the clutch quite soon.On a manual trans, take-off would be slower but otherwise no big deal.Metal shavings from damaged parts could contaminate the trans fluid and further damage could happen.
In the manual transmission. Look for a bolt/plug that unscrews from the side of the trans case most of the time manual transmissions don't take fluid if its grinding when you shift try adding clutch fluid the place for clutch fluid is right in front of your steering wheel on the firewall just use dot3 brak fluid for that it says so on the cap if you don't believe me or if it does take fluid on the side of the transfer case if its four wheel drive lok for a boltplug to add there good luck
