there is no oil pan gasket on this car. it sealed with a silicone type sealant. the trans. does not have to come out. the front exhaust pipe does though, as well as a bracket located on the front side of the engine, and the transmission lower cover plate. (thats probably why you thought the trans. had to come out). once those things are out of the way the bolts are easy to remove and the pan just needs to be pried off the bottom of the block and resealed with a suitable sealant. If you have a V6, you can easily remove the lower pan by removing the bolts and prying the pan off the aluminum case. reseal it in the same manner.
You need to check the transmission gasket between the transmission pan and the body. If it's leaking you have to replace it.
The housing needs to be removed. Check for scratches on the housing or engine. Make sure that all of the old gasket is removed before using gasket sealer to help seal the new gasket.
you do not need to change gaskets just a good flush will do the trick If the transmission pan has been removed, then you should replace the gasket. The only other reason for changing it is if it is leaking transmission oil from the gasket. Otherwise the above answer is good. Just watch out that whoever does it doesn't over tighten the plug. Toyota overtightened my wifes and trashed the threads. Had to replace the whole pan and Toyota wouldn't fess up to their mistake! There goes another couple hundred bucks!
NEVER flush a transmission with an internal replaceable filter. The pan should be dropped, the gasket removed and replaced and the filter carefully removed to replace (do NOT leave the filter neck seal in the valve body chamber when removing the original filter). You can flush the rest of the fluid with the new filter installed, but why?
The transmission pan has to be removed. There is no drain. lower one corner to let fluid drain into a pan. After the pan has been removed, take out the filter and replace. Reinstall the pan with a new gasket.
When you are facing your car radiator look under the car at the exhaust system. On the right side of the exhaust system you will see the transaxle fluid stainer. The transmission gasket is between the stainer and the transmission body. Carefully inspect your stainer if it's clean and doesn't have transmission fluid stains you don't need to worry about. If your gasket or stainer has wet region you have to replace the gasket. Be carefull working close to the exhaust system.
It will be on the bottom of the transmission

Faulty transmission Pan gasket
The 1994 Buick Century 4 cylinder head gasket will have to be removed and replaced. The head has to be removed, along with anything that is physically in the way of removal, before the head gasket can be removed.
No, Fluid, filter, and gasket
The torque is 89 inch pounds or 7.41 foot pounds. You should never reuse a transmission gasket. If you are doing work on the transmission, replace the filter, it usually comes with a new gasket.
if it's the same as a 95 lt1 engine and you drained and dropped the pan and replaced the gasket and filter, then it is 4 and a half.
Replace the head gasket is the only fix.
No, do you not need a gasket, don't be ignant.
You have to remove the transmission pan. Once removed clean the old gasket from the lip of the pan and insall new gasket. you can purchase a gasket and filter kit for under 20.00 at an auto parts stoe ie:Pep Boys,AutoZone. Mine as well replace the filter anyway since it's visible once you remove the pan. Hope this helps you out firstname.lastname@example.org
This question is incomplete but I will offer some thought. The transmission filter purchased from the local auto parts store has a rubber gasket attached to the tube which sticks into a port on the underside of the body of the transmission. The factory original rubber gasket tends to remain inside the port. I was told that the gasket on the replacement filter could be removed and the original gasket could remain in place to seal the replacement filter. The factory original gasket appears to be an aluminum ring overlaid with rubber and would likely require a special tool to remove. My experience with this situation is very limited and perhaps someone with better knowledge can give a more professional answer or offer advice for removing the factory original gasket. This is a completely separate issue from replacing the pan gasket.
Average cost to replace a head gasket is $1000
were do I start
Yes, it does.
Most of the automatic transmissions of this vintage (cars or pickups) on US-made vehicles that I have seen are lacking a transmission drain plug, which unfortunately makes changing the transmission fluid a potentially messy proposition. You can start by removing a few of the bolts holding the transmission fluid pan to the underside of the transmission, which will likely allow some of the fluid to drain out. While carefully holding the pan in place, remove the rest of the bolts, and remove the pan. It may be stuck to the transmission pan gasket. You can carefully pry the pan off, but be careful not to gouge the transmission housing, or bend the transmission pan. Once the pan is removed, there will be a transmission filter that should be replaced also. Don't forget a new transmission pan gasket. Make sure that all the old gasket has been carefully removed from the transmission housing and/or the transmission pan. Oftentimes when purchasing a new transmission filter, it will come with a transmission pan gasket- but be sure. One final note- removing the pan/draining the fluid will not remove the old fluid which is still in the torque converter. To do this, you'll need to have the transmission flushed by a transmission shop. It can be done by a DIY'er, but involves removing a line from the transmission cooler, and can get a little complex for the average in-front-of-the-garage-on-a-Saturday-afternoon-type repair. If your transmission has 100,000 miles on it and has never been flushed, flushing it may do more harm than good, as sediments can be dislodged within the transmission that could get lodged in the small orfices in various valves within the transmission.
