It sounds like something hit the pan and caused your leak, as I am sure you observed. Check with your local dealer for a price on a new pan, or call your local junk yard for a used pan. A new pan is not availible from the aftermarket. I would go with a good junk yard pan myself, the difference in price may be shocking. Transmissions can be very tempermental. When you go flushing them out, they can act up. Removing the pan, installing a transmission filter kit (which will include the pan gasket), and adding replacing the transmission fluid will be fine. Unless you have been having mechanical trouble with the transmission, do not mess with it by flushing it out. You can open up a bad can of worms. Also, check the level of the fluid now; make sure the fluid is not too low as you are riding around getting parts. Low transmission fluid will destroy any transmission in no time at all.
