Auto or manual tranny? V-6 or 4-cyl? It matters.

Passenger side like businessmanph said. Make sure to use a long handled ratchet...

bad idea actually, most people use a long rachet and turn it slowly, because the metal to metal contact it's easy to stripe the bolt that way.

use a regular size handle and give it a quick blow, one good yank will break it loose

What metal to metal contact are you talking about? Not trying to sound dumb or nothing but I don't see what you're speaking of...

well...the drain and refill was a complete success...thanks to you guys for helping me out...the lug came out with one great big jolt...i used the regular size ratchet. came out like a champ. looks like the person who owned the car before me had atleast 6 1/2 quarts of tranny fluid in before....but now i drained all that crap out and filled it with 4 quarts of Honda ATF...car runs alot better and shifts silky smooth....

thanks again to all that helped me...

I used another ATF brand, do you guys think that can be a reason it's shifting hard?

Fill whatever amount makes the correct level on the dipstick. (Car warmed up, shift into park, turn OFF the engine.) Don't simply go by quarts. The tranny & torque converter have something like 7 or 8 quarts in there, but only 1/3 or 1/2 of it can drain out.
