2003 VUE 3.0L
Question Transmission oil cooler lines

I have a 2003 VUE AWD 3.0L. It has 126K on it with the full monty at 100K (mechanic was impressed with condition at 100K) At any rate, have noticed a drip of trans fluid at the point where the oil lines attach to the transmission. The oil lines end in a plate (of sorts) which is attached to the trans with one stud/nut combo, at this attachment point there is a gasket, which I believe to be the leak source.
Question: Where do I find information for changing said gasket, and will it involve a major fluid change? I'm hoping for a quick change with a minor top off of fluid
Please bear with, as I'm a new-B here on the forum with minimal mechanical knowledge of the Saturn.
Thank You

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Review the attached screen-shot - and if it depicts the general area of concern - I'll email service manual extracts to repair (by the way - I'd most definitely refresh the ATF).

You can left click on my screen-name - select send private message - include an email address and we'll go from there.

I try to visit forum often but suggest you use private messages if in a rush (comes to cell) and include email address for extracts. I seldom check visitor messages so please don't use.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
