Take it to a shop, worth the little bit extra you will pay. Mine cost about 95 bucks to get changed.

It is a little to late, I replace the line to the cooler that was leaking an fluid is out, the last thing I did was look for the converter plug and it was not there and the lowest price around to do everything not including fluids was $ 130. I had no choice

If you have already drained the pan, then put back in the amount of fluid you already drained. The you can remove the return line from the cooler at the trans. put some tubing on line and put it in a bucket. Have someone run the truck and shift the gears while you add more oil as the trucks internal pump gets the old oil out. When you see clean oil coming out then its flushed. The just have to get your fill level correct.There are some really good writeups on this with detail and pics. I flushed my 99 this summer with Amsoil doing that process and it worked out good.

Wish one is the return line on a 2000? The one that connect at the front of the transmission or the one that connect on the back of the transmission?

The return is at the back on the trans. When you take that one off it may lose a little bit of fluid but not much. When the truck is running though it shouldn't have any coming out.
