This PML transmission pan fits the GM 700R4, 4L60, 4L60E transmissions.

PML designed this pan as a heavy duty, extra capacity replacement for the GM shallow pan that came with vehicles model year 1998 and older and a few vehicles, such as Camaro and Firebird up to 2002. The stock GM shallow pan and the stock GM deep pan are shown in the picture below.

The key distinguishing feature between the stock GM shallow pan and the stock GM deep pan is the step at the back of the pan. (Click on image to view larger.)

Note there are two versions of the stock GM shallow pan. They have the same depth. The older version is primarily found on 700R4 transmissions. This PML pan, part number 8650-1, can replace either style GM shallow pan.

You should always check your truck, SUV, or van to see which stock pan you have and look for clearance with exhaust and frame cross members. Generally, here are some examples of vehicles that this PML pan fits:

  • Blazer (mini), 1988 to 1998, i4, 2.8, or 4.3 engine
  • C10/K10, 1986 to 1987, 4.3, 305, or 350 engine
  • C1500/K1500, 1988 to 1995, 4.3, 5.0, or 5.7 engine
  • C2500/K2500, 1990 to 1999, 5.0 or 5.7 engine
  • Express, 1996 to 1998, 4.3, 4.8, 5.0, 5.3 or 5.7 engine
  • S10, 1988 to 1998, i4, 2.8, or 4.3 engine
  • S15, 1988 to 1998, i4, 2.8, or 4.3 engine
  • Savana, 1996 to 1998, 4.3, 4.8, 5.0, 5.3, or 5.7 engine
  • Sonoma, 1991 to 1998, i4 or 4.3 engine
  • Suburban 1500, 1986 to 1991, 350, 400, or 6.2 diesel engine
  • Suburban 1500, 1992 to 1998, 5.7 or 6.5 diesel engine
  • Tahoe, 1995 to 1998, 5.7 engine
  • Yukon, 1992 to 1998, 5.7 engine

These are the earlier models of these vehicles. The later year models have exhaust or frame cross members running under the pan and our later model year pan, part number 9427, is designed with a step for clearance on those vehicles.

Filter Information

The filter supports are the three cylinders in the middle of the pan on the inside. These filter supports are designed for the 700R4 and shallow 4L60E filters.

Optionally, this pan can be machined for a temperature sending unit. The pan has bosses on the passenger's side and the driver's side that can be machined. PML has a machine shop and can drill and tap to your specifications. Please call to order machining.

The drain is on the driver's side.
