    There is no drain plug on the transmission, you remove the entire pan. But first you need to identify the source of your leak. Put the vehicle on jack stands and dry off all the wet fluid with a rag. Repeat the procedure you followed to top off the fluid level. Get under the vehicle and look for the leak points. Have a friend shift through the gears while you observe. I would focus on some common leak points. First, the hoses that carry the fluid for cooling to the radiator. Secondly, where the dipstick enters the transmission. Lastly around the edges of the pan. 90% chance one of these three areas are the source of your trouble.
