PML designed this Chrysler/Dodge transmission pan for these transmissions:
- A904: 40RH, 42RH, 42RE, 44RE
- A904: 30RH
This pan may also fit:
- A998: 31RH
- A999: 32RH
- Extra capacity
- Fins for cooling
- Drain hole and magnetic drain plug
- Heavy duty sand cast aluminum construction
- Machined gasket surface for sealing securely to the housing
- Works with stock filter and gasket so no custom parts needed
- Internal baffles
Always check your vehicle to verify transmission and available space. Configurations vary. The exhaust system and frame cross members are the primary concerns with this pan.
- 1994-2001 Dodge Ram 1500 with 3.9 V6
- 1995-2003 Dodge Ram Van 1500 with 3.9 or 5.2
- 1988-1994 Dodge Ram Van 150 with 3.9 or 5.2
- 2000-2003 Dodge Dakota with 3.9 (4WD Dakotas will need to have cross member loosened to install pan, 2WD and 4WD should check ground clearance)
- 1987-1999 Dodge Dakota with 3.9 or 5.2 (Check exhaust routing and 4WD Dakotas will need to have cross member loosened to install pan)
- 1998-2003 Dodge Durango with 3.9 or 5.2
- 1999-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 4.0 (may also have AW4 transmission)
- 1993-1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 4.0 or 5.2 (may also have AW4 transmission and may have clearance issues with stock exhaust)
- 1987-2001 Jeep Cherokee with 4.0 (may also have AW4 transmission and may have clearance issues with stock exhaust)
- 1993-2002 Jeep Wrangler with 4.0 (may have clearance issues with stock exhaust and the frame crossmember)
Dodge and Jeep uses both Chrysler and Aisan Warner transmissions and route the exhaust in a variety of ways. Check your stock pan against the PML pan to verify that the shape of the pan perimeter and the bolt pattern are the same as the PML pan.
This pan can also fit the 30RH transmission, also called the A904. Dodge introduced this transmission in the 1960s and it is found in light duty applications.
This pan may also fit 31RH and 32RH transmissions.

2002 Dodge Dakota
John installed this PML transmission pan on his 2002 Dakota V6 to help with the heat dissipation while towing. He emailed us that the installing the pan was easy and the pan fit like a charm.
2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0
Scott installed this pan on his 2000 Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0 4WD. He said the PML pan is a "great product, easy to switch out.".
1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0
As part of a project to breath new life into this 1999 WJ, this PML transmission pan and front and rear PML differential covers were installed. The transmission pan was a simple bolt on replacement. For the rear cover, the sway bar needed a spacer to increase clearance. See PML Dana 35 cover part number 5062 and for the front PML Dana 25, 27, 30 differential cover part number 5058.
Watch this video to see the transmission pan installation on the 1999 Grand Cherokee.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0
Joshua installed this pan on his Grand Cherokee and emailed us to say "it was easier installing this one than taking the old one off."
1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Exhaust Bulge
On a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0, the customer moved the part of the exhaust that conflicted with the pan.
1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited ZG 5.2 V8
Istanbul is the site of this installation of a PML transmission pan. Our thanks to Murat for purchasing a PML pan and for the pictures.
1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV 4.0L
The customer installed this PML transmission pan on his 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV 4.0L. However the exhaust did not fit with the new larger pan, so he had to modify the exhaust to fit the new pan. Steps he took to modify the exhast were: 1. Cut the 2-1/2inch pipe, had to move forward about 3 inch, had about 6 to 8 inch of straight pipe be for the CAT and cut it in the middle of this. 2. Cut the 2inch pipe at the first bend coming down from the header. 3. Took about 1-1/2 off the 2inch pipe that was just cut. 4. Cut the 2inch pipe off at the reducer and used that as new elbow. 5. Then added about 1inch of 2inch pipe to both sides of this elbow. Pictures of modified exahust below.
1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee
George Goss installed this PML transmission pan on his 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0L ZJ. He had no interference or clearance issues. This is the picture he emailed us and what George said in his email:
"I have to say that the PML transmission pan is a beautifully engineered & manufactuired product and I find it great for my Jeep. Not just because I like the added fluid capacity & drain plug (and commensurate reduced transmission operating temperature with easier maintenence), but also importantly because of the stiffness it remains planar when installed and prevents fluid leaking that the flimsy stock pan has a problem with. I hope you will share my feedback with other potential PML customers since I am happy with this harware addition to my vehicle."
Filter and Gasket
PML designed this pan to work with the stock filter and gasket.
The filter bolts on to the valve body. There is no extension needed. The filter pick up and fluid level are at the same location with the PML pan as with the stock pan.
PML recommends a gasket made of cork, rubber/cork, or similar flexible material.
Bolts and Drain
PML includes a magnetic drain plug and new mounting bolts with each pan.
The drain hole is on the driver side of the pan.
Bolt Note: Vince with a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee emailed us to let us know that the pan fit fine but a couple of the bolts we supply are too long for some of the holes on his Jeep. Some through holes hit the tail housing before they compress the gasket enough to prevent leaks. He added a couple washers to get the bolts to pull the cover up.
A stock bolt is pictured. PML's bolts are longer to accomodate the thick flange.
The pan has cast-in baffles to reduce sloshing.
Baffles also act as a heat sink to reduce fluid temperatures.
Optional Machining for Temperature Sending Unit
This pan has a location on the driver side that can be machined for a temperature sending unit.
If you would like PML to drill and tap the hole, the machining charge is per hole.
The standard size is 1/8 NPT. If another size is needed, please call or email.
