Off topic but what would happen if I took a shotgun to the engine? Im talking 12 guage single shot with the hood open and about 10 feet away aiming for lower intake? For some reason I doubt it would do much except for maybe crack the UIM and maybe cut a few wires.
This, children is why we don't do drugs.

If you really want ot change the fluid, you need to get it flushed. Draining the pan doesn't get all of it out. There is still quite a bit of fluid in the clutch packs and cooler. A full flush will take about 12-18 quarts. Not sure about just dumping the pan though.

Glorkar is correct. My suggestion is a FULL flush. Take the output line off the transmission cooler [located on the radiator.. at lest for me, unless you have an aftermarket unit]. Then get some tubing from AZ or wherever, thread that **** on, and have a pan ready.. start up the car, and have a friend hold the brakes, and run the car through the gears, while slowly pouring in new, fresh fluid. Do this until the colour of the fluid coming out, is that of the fluid going in. Shut the engine off, wait 30-60 minutes [crucial], then jack up the car, drop the pan, and do the regular changing of everything, like already mentioned. This way you have completly fresh fluid all around, and no worries
