Read your manual/service book.

It will detail what needs to be done at each interval.

There is a long thread here on changing the auto fluid in VEs with lots of comments by RICEY. No pictures though.

Servicing the VE auto is not as easy as changing the engine oil so unless you have the right gear and skill I would definitely recommend not trying to do it yourself especially as it is not something you have to do every 10 - 15000 kms.

Take the car to a competent auto Transmission specialist and have them service the transmission for you (or to Holden).
