I'm in the process of removing my automatic transmission (I believe it's a C4). The manual says to spin the crank until the torque converter drain plug shows up. I've removed the drain plug cover plate thing so I can see the torque converter bolts, but I can't find my drain plug. All the bolts seem to be the torque convertor bolts to bolt it to the flywheel. Is it possible my converter doesn't have a drain plug?

Yes, if it has been replaced via an aftermarket version it is possible. It is not a big deal, just that when you remove the converter from your transmission it will be heavier and messier, fluid will spill.
