First, jack the front end up of the car using jack stand and try to remove the transmission plug.
Drain the fluid from the transmission and reinstall it.

Find the transmission cooler line which is connected to the radiator. Commonly you can see these connections at the bottom of the radiator, remove the connections and place it in 5 gallon bucket under it.

Crank up the transmission so that the fluid comes out and falls in the placed bucket. Stop the car after the fluid comes out. Reinstall the connection to the radiator. Add fluid slowly into the transmission with the funnel. After you full fill the fluid upto three quantities then again strat crank the car and keep the engine at rest. Take the jack stands and go for another drive. Check everything for leaks.
