probably not this sounds like something a mechanic would need to look at but i would be present and look into the pan when they remove it to see if there are signs of metal this indicates some internal parts are breaking. but if it is only clunking when you first put it into gear check the u-joints if it is a rear wheel drive car if it is a front wheel drive look at the motor while some one puts it into gear you may have some worn out motor mounts which are cheaper to replace than a motor.

If the transmission would not go into gear before changing the transmission fluid, then the fluid change was for naught. Hopefully you changed the filter in there, too. If the tranny was busted before the oil change, then simply changing the oil is not going to fix the problem.

How can you drain all the transmission fluid from transmission?

Find the drain plug on the tranny oil pan. Loosen it and the fluid should start to drain - remove the plug all the way and let the contents go into a pan. When doing this, one also needs to change the tranny oil filter - this is accomplished by removing the tranny oil pan and changing it.
