A PML A340 pan would be similar to our transmission pan for the AW4. It would be a "no dipstick" design, slightly deeper than stock, and finned.
The A340 (A340E, A340F, A340H) and the AW4 are sister transmissions. The AW4 is commonly found in Jeeps, such as 1987-2001 Cherokees. PML makes and sells and AW4 pan. See PML AW4 Transmission (see PML Part Number 11076) for that transmission pan.
The A340E, A340F, A340H transmission is found in Toyota cars, trucks and SUVs and a few Mitsubishis, Kias, Lexus cars and SUVs, and Volvos.
There are 9 different stock pans. These 9 stock pans have 4 different depths and 7 different dipstick receiver heights and angles. The dipstick receivers complicate the design and manufacturing. There are 13 different filters and 15 different valve bodies in addition to 9 different pans.
Because different models have different the stock pans and dipstick receiver tubes, PML would replace the dipstick and receiver tube with level check/fill holes on the pan. This means you would no longer use your dipstick. The transmission fluid level would be checked from pan.
Some models of these vehicles have an A340 transmission:
- 1992 to 2010 Toyota 4Runner
- 1992 to 1998 Toyota Supra L6 3.0L without Turbo
- 1993 to 1998 Toyota Supra L3 3.0L with Turbo
- 1993 to 1998 Toyota T100
- 1995 to 2017 Toyota Tacoma
- 2000 to 2004 Toyota Tundra
- Some 1990 to 2005 Kia, Lexus, Mitsubishi and Volvo
- Some international vehicles, such as Soarer
The related AW4 Transmission (see PML Part Number 11076) is found mostly in Jeep vehicles. Some early 4Runners MAY be able to use Part Number 11076 but you would need to carefully check that the filter, stock pan and valve body are match those used by PML to develop the AW4 pan.
