Transmission gasket leaking on 97 GC.

I just called 2 local dealers to see how much it is for a transmission flush. Well one dealer doesn't take the pan off on a flush, but to flush it and take the pan off they said around $160-180. The other dealer doesn't do flushes, but just drains the pan. They said $80. Can I just drop the pan myself to replace the gasket? I need some recommendations.

My GC is a 97 model Laredo 4x4. 135,000 miles.

Unless you're getting a "power flush" or whatever that one company calls it, all they're doing is pretty much only changing what's in the pan anyway. So the job is entirely a do it yourself kind of deal.

Also, I have to question the competence of any dealer that would change the fluid without taking off the pan to change out the filter, since that's typically a well-neglected filter for most people.

If you have questions on the process, lemme know. It's pretty easy to do.

80 bucks is not a bad deal.

You will probally spend $50 on filter, gasket, ATF.

If this is the first time to remove the gaskett be prepared mine was one of those gork gasketts took forever to get all of it off of the pan.

Other than that it is an easy job.

It costed me $17 for 5 quarts of fluid and the kit which includes the filter and gasket.

I bought all my stuff from the dealer. Big difference. I needed a crank position sensor.
