1991 GMC Sonoma p/u tranny fluid

My truck's tranny has been acting a little funny lately, and I figured before I take it into the transmission guy, I add some of that no-slip stuff. I don't know if I'm gonna keep the truck that much longer and just need it to last a little longer. My only problem is I need to drain off some tranny fluid before adding the no-slip. It may sound stupid, but what's the easiest way for me to drain off some fluid. I was just underneath looking around, and only saw one thing that looked like a plug, I believe it was on the back side of the torque conv. Cooler lines look to be plumbed to the top of the tranny.
Oh yeah, its a '91 GMC Somona p/u 4X4, automatic trans

Any help would be appreciated.
thanks

Easiest way would be the cooler lines where they enter the radiator if they're not too badly rusted/corroded.

Don't be surprised if the mechanic-in-a-can doesn't help any.

Try stopping by a repair shop and see if any of the tech's have a mityvac or other similar device. The fluid can be sucked out right through the dipstick tube with no mess. I use this method before changing the filters.

Good luck,

Johnny
