2002Ls430 Base Model Has Transmission Gasket Leak

Recommended Posts

This question also Posted on Club Lexus.

2002 LS430 base model. 100k. Bought new and dealer serviced every 5k. Garaged, well maintained. Appears to have developed a slight ooze from the front of the transmission pan gasket. Have gotten a tad miffed at my local Lexus service dept, so am having an outside certified Lexus mechanic fix this problem.

For my general information, what besides the gasket and fluid replacement need doing? Filter, etc. Helpful hints, no-no's, etc would be appreciated.

Am not real familiar with the Lexus and Toyota and other recent transmissions. The last tranny I rebuilt was a 1953 Packard Ultramatic, but have serviced my own 454 GMC, 3800 Buick, and several manual VW's dating back to a 1959 beetle. So any comments would be appreciated.
