I am really going to say this w/o being a jerk...take it somewhere.

but if you must do it yourself..find the oil pan and follow it till you see a bolt. they are generally in the bottom "hump"

Go buy a Haynes or Chilton manual. I prefer Haynes w/better pictures.

Yeah, take it to a shop, ask if you can watch them change the oil, then next time around do it yourself. I hope you filled the tranny fluid back up after you drained part of it.

If you run your hand along the back edge of the oil pan, you will feel the oil plug. It's on the back edge of the oil pan.

Agreed. I don't want to come off as being rude but if you need to ask this question you should probably have assistance from someone who is experienced. Do not take these as negative comments. Everyone has to learn. No one is born with the necessary knowledge.
