Question about 2000 Daewoo Nubira
The gasket is easy to find at any Autozone. Seal it with a little Permatex (blue) for insurance.
*remember to scrape the lip of the pan well, and wipe with a clean cloth. Stagger your bolts on replacement (like mounting a wheel) to get an even seal. Don't over-torque.
A cracked pan can be repaired 2 ways without welding:
Liquid Metal or Permatex.
Liquid Metal is a resin-based epoxy that is sold in auto-parts stores (like Autozone) and will set quickly to a patch that can be sanded, drilled, and painted.
For a tranny pan, heat and pressure are fairly low-level concerns, and LM will do fine.
...if you can't find Liquid Metal (or it's competitors)...
Permatex makes a full line of adhesives and sealants, so get the counter-jockey to help you pick the right model for your application (but double-check his choice before you leave the parking lot, just in case he's an moron...rare, but it happens).
You want the permanent sealant, with mid-range pressure properties.)
Tranny fluid is fairly caustic, and between the 2 options above I would prefer the first for a longer hold.
You will eventually replace the pan, but ther LiquidMetal patch will hold the fluid until you can find a new pan.
For either repair method, a large (thin and wide) magnet to cover the patch is a good idea.
Pick up a bottle of alcohol and a cheap toothbrush at the drugstore, and after you pull the pan you'll scrub in and around the crack with these to get a good seal.

It depends what your skills are. working with cars Yes is a job that you can do, there is few steps that you have to follow to do the job right first make sure that the part your removing is the one your going to fix locate the problem to remove trans pan bolts start from the sides and finish on the center of the pan mean, unscrew bolts from bth side of the pan and the last ones to unscrew should be on the center ones of the pan(do not use any silicone on the gasket, gasket only.) when bolted back start from the center of the pan and finish on the ends of the pan on cross maner and if you know the torque spec would be great if not well can i say, dont go too hard on the bolts. Hope this will help you
