Really in order to change the filter and gasket.

Get car lifted.
Remove trans pan. All Fluid will come out
You will see the filter.
Remove filter.
Remove old rubber gasket from trans pan.CHECK FOR BITS OF METAL IN THE BOTTOM OF THE TRANS PAN. METAL=WORN TRANNY.
Add New filter.
Add new gasket.
Bolt pan back on,alternating bolts. Do not bolt the right side then left side,that will make the tranny leak prematurely.
Fill car back up with tranny fluid.

DONT ALWAYS JUMP TO THE MOST EXPENSIVE REPAIR. IT IS FAIRLY COMMON FOR THESE 10+ YEAR OLD GASKETS TO FAIL. RUBBER+OIL=WEAR OF RUBBER
