I'm guessing your talking about an automatic, as only autos have transmission fluid and differential fluid. Here goes (per Haynes):

Transmission Fluid (Dexron II):
Fluid Change - 3 Quarts
Complete Fill - 6.9 Quarts

Diiferential (90W) - 1.05 Quarts

At this very moment I'm drainin & refilling my differential. Autos only have a fill hole (17mm Allen wrench needed). I had to use some vinyl tubing drain it... Very slow going... Been like an hour only about 1/2 way done..

Well that's not fair. There must be a drain hole somewhere. How else would they expect you to get the metal filings out?...

There we go, checked the factory manuals, the reccomended procedure for changing the fluid is removing the pan on the bottom, and changing the filter while you're in there.
You will need a new gasket for the pan, and a new filter.
Reminds me a lot of a chevy van I worked on...
It says to unscrew the lines from the fluid resevoir before doing this?... I'm not 100% familliar with the auto transmissions, this may or may not be necessary.

No sense in just changing the fluid if the filter is full of crap.

Yup Zero, easiest way to do the ATF is with removing the pan. Did mine back in the summer, dont remember off the top of my head if I had to remove the reservoir line. I do not believe so though.

The differential fluid was a snap. The biggest PITA was letting it drain. Next time I'll use a big tube to drain it. The stuff was like mud in there, definitely didnt get the whole quart out. I'll let the new fluid mix for a few days and use it like a flush, redrain (hopefully faster this time) and refill.

Had to bump for transpan drops, because they pay me the most at work:-D

Make sure you have a big pan to catch the fluid in.

Why don't you get a vaccum pump and pump the diff?
