There is a drain plug on the transmission pan at the bottom of the transmission; should be 19MM and the gasket is Nissan # 11026-01M02. I'm not sure if the Lucas additive is a good idea, but if you are going to install it, why not do a drain and fill service at the same time? Don't use Dexron III/Mercon ATF, as it has been known to cause valve sticking in Jatco automatics. Rather, go with Nissanmatic Type "D" ATF or synthetic, aftermarket ATF like Valvoline Maxlife Full-synthetic ATF or Castrol Transmax Multi-import ATF. Typically, you'll need around 4-1/2 quarts during a drain and fill. Make sure there are no stored codes; transmission issues aren't always caused by something in the transmission itself.
