it is like 40 bucks or so along with the [email protected] nissan dealer..it is deffinitely DIY! a little tip that i did when putting the pan back on was to use 2 pieces of tape to tape the gasket to the pan..as i got one side bolted up i removed one of the pieces of tape..other wise the damn gasket moved around and was a little bit of a biatch..be sure to take magnet out of old pan..there wasnt one in the new pan that i got??

Same thing happend to me like 2 weeks ago. I woke up and went to drive my car and it acted like it was in neutral. Came to find a small "river" of tranny fluid along the curb. I paid a total of 51.53 for pan and gasket. As mensioned above, dont forget to take out the magnets, I almost forgot mine. Clean them real good before you put them back in, mine were filthy. Definatly a diy job, mine took a total of 2 hours to put in and I was back on the road driving. DONT tighten the pan bolts too tight, they WILL strip out. I stripped one of mine but still holds fine cuz theres like 21 bolts holding it in. Any more q's dont hesitate.

You should've done it yourself, its really easy. It only takes about 2 hours for the whole job. See if you cant get it back b-4 they start working on it and charge you out the a$$!
