Best Answer

Sure it can be done at home, but if you shop around you can often find a transmission shop that will be quite inexpensive. You'll need to drop the transmission pan, and be careful to not spill oil all over the driveway or garage floor. Examine the contents of the pan and look for large quantities of sediment. If you see much more than a tablespoon of metal and clutch fiber material, the transmission is just about done. If the pan was reasonably clean, carefully clean the inside of the pan, both the pan gasket surfaces and the transmission gasket surface so that the new gasket will seal well. Remove the filter and install the new one; they're different for each kind of transmission, so whatever it takes. Then align the new pan gasket and put it all back together. It isn't high tech, but you need to be careful so that it doesn't leak when you're done. Just a little attention to detail can go a long way.
