Question about 1997 Nissan Maxima
Yes. You will need a new pan, filter kit, and about 2 gal. of transmission fluid. Check your owners manual to see what type of oil to get, or just ask at the auto parts store. Raise the front end of the car up until you can get under it comfortably. Secure it with jack stands. Get a pan to catch the transmission fluid, as you take out the pan bolts the fluid will begin to leak out so take your time or it will get really messy. After you have removed the pan, change the filter and make sure the gasket sealing surface it clean and free of the old gasket. Make sure the pan is clean and if its a used one, make sure the gasket surface is clean as well. Put the gasket on the pan, put a couple bolts through it to keep it in place and attach it to the transmission first by installing all the bolts and then by snugging them down. Do not over tighten or you will damage the gasket. Then add about a gallon and a half of transmission fluid, start the car and check for leaks. If no leaks are found, lower the car and top off your fluid level to the cold level on the dip stick.

There is nothing in the way to do this other than removing about 16-18 bolts around the pan itself-it is a messy job, though, so have rags, a catch-pan, and you will need to jack it up so you have room to work.
