Transmissions don't usually have a drain plug. You have to pull the pan and replace the filter while the pan is down. Always replace the gasket when you pull the pan.

If it is automatic, you should be putting the manufacturer recommended ATF (automatic transmission fluid) into it, NOT gear oil. There will be a plug on the bottom somewhere to drain it, and you will likely fill it from the dipstick tube in the engine compartment. Check your owners manual, or find it online, or call and ask a dealer about what you should be putting in the transmission and where.

Where is the transmission cap for a 1999 Toyota Camry?

If the vehicle is an automatic transmission then you will find a DIPSTICK inserted in a filler tube that goes down to the transmission . Locate the tranny in the engine bay and you will find it. It IS IN THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT and is very similar to the OIL dipstick but it IS LONGER. If the vehicle has a MANUAL (w/clutch) tranny then the only way to check it is from underneath the vehicle by unscrewing a drain or drain/fill plug. This is always on the SIDE of the transmission and looks like a HEX bolt.

To change the transmission fluid, jack up your SUV to have enough room to get under the vehicle comfortably and safely. Find the transmission and have a drain pan under it. Remove the drain plug and allow fluid to drain. Remove all of the bolts and lower the transmission pan. Remove the transmission filter and replace if needed.

How do I find the drain for the oil pan in a 1996 Olds Cutlas Supreme?

The best way I have found to locate drains for oil pans on unfamiliar cars is to just get underneath and look around. It ~has~ to be located somewhere on the bottom of the oil pan. Make sure when you find said drain, that it's not the transmission drain, and you accidentally drain the transmission!

it depends - if it's an automatic transmission you can add directly to the dip stick tube - if it's a manual transmission you can find a plug underneath the vehicle on the side of the trans (usually there is a drain plug and an add plug) - best bet is just take it to an oil change shop - they can probably do it in 5 minutes.
