Drain all transmission fluid

Unfortunately, there is no plug to pull for the torque converter or the transmission pan. All you can do is drop the transmission pan, change the filter and replace the transmission fluid. Never get a transmission flushed as it will cause problems. So it would take around 4 to 5 quarts of fluid to refill. There is a procedure my trany guy does to flush the transmission without using any pressure if you like to know how. But it requires a lot of fluid to do this.

The transmission hose that connects to the ac condenser on my 2015 gmc sierra 4x4 was loose and it fell off while driving. Luckily, i was a few hundred feet away from my house when the truck started acting up and as i went to my nearest oreilly store to buy more transmission fluid, i saw the leak start not too far away from where i stopped. My question. Because of the big leak, will my transmission be damaged?
