You can purchase a filter and gasket kit from your local auto parts store. Then using a wide drain pan, drop the transmission oil pan, change the filter, reinstall the pan and refill transmission with aprox 4 qts of ATF. Doing this only changes about half of the fluid, the rest of the old fluid stays in the transmission. If you want to change all the fluid it will take a shop with the right equipment to flush the transmission completely.
