    No, there is no drain plug. You have two options:

    Have somebody hook up an "inline" machine so it can install new fluid as it extracts old fluid.
    -or-
    Drain fluid by removing pan, refill, start vehicle & repeat two more times. not as effective but will eventually get most fluid out.
