    Dimensions: are in this pdf file. This pan is about 5/8" deeper than the 3.3" stock pan.
    Number of Bolts: 18 (there are 20 holes, 2 holes locate the gasket and 18 holes for bolts to hold the pan to the transmission case)

    PML designed this transmission pan for 2006 and newer Cadillac, GMC, and Chevrolet cars and GM trucks and SUVs with the 6L80, 6L80E transmission. Features:

    • Maintains ground clearance or clearance to skid plate, only 5/8 inch deeper than stock
    • Heavy duty sand cast aluminum construction
    • Finned to dissipate heat from transmission fluid
    • Drain hole and magnetic drain plug for easier maintenance
    • Fill/level check hole and plug for filling the transmission through the pan
    • Thick walls to add strength to the transmission housing
    • Thick gasket flange, machined flat for a leak free seal

    There is a fill/level check hole for vehicles without a dipstick, such as some Camaros. The fill/level check is 5/8 inch below the flange. Check that your stock pan is the same. See Applications for more information.

    If the exhaust crosses underneath the stock pan, you may need to drop or lower the exhaust to install this pan. Three bolts are difficult to access and there is not any space to manuever the thicker PML pan on to the transmission housing.

    PML also makes a GM 6L80 deep transmission pan with extra capacity. It is part number 11025.

    This pan will fit the GM 6L80, 6L80E transmission found on many configurations of GM, Cadillac, Chevy and Hummer H2. Some possible vehicles:

    • Camaro 2010 to 2015, V8 6.2L
    • Hummer H2 2008 to 2009, V8 6.2L, with undercarriage protection (check clearance)
    • Trucks and SUVs needing more ground clearance than with the PML deep pan (such as those that are lowered or have skid plates)
    • Chevy/GM cars with 3.3" stock pan and similar level check

    Check these items before ordering:

    1. Verify transmission is a 6L80/6L80E.
    2. Measure depth of stock pan since this PML pan replaces 3.3 inches deep stock pans.
    3. Check that there is clearance for a pan about 5/8 inch deeper.
    4. If vehicle requires use of fill/level check on pan, the fill/level check hole on the PML pan must be at the same location relative to the flange. Most trucks and SUVs have a dipstick and a stock pan without a fill/level check. Read this PDF for more information on the fill/level check in the pan: Verify Level Check.

    Configurations vary and PML cannot guarantee fitment.

    Some Corvettes and Cadillacs may not be able to use this pan. Check the stock pan. If the stock pan is GM part number 24239529, this PML pan cannot replace it since the fill level is different.

    Outside of stock pan 24239529 looks very similar to stock pans this PML pan can replace. The fill level height is the difference.:

    Gasket Information

    PML designed this stock capacity transmission pan for GM 6L80 transmission to use the stock OEM gasket. The stock OEM gasket is reusable. Make sure the gasket is clean and free of any holes or nicks to avoid leaks.

    Filter Information

    PML designed this stock capacity transmission pan for GM 6L80 transmission to use the stock OEM filter.

    Check your stock pan depth. We based our design on a stock pan that is 3.3 inches deep. The filter is held in place by the bottom of the pan. Some stock pans are not 3.3 inches deep. For exapmle, the pan for a Pontiac G8 is 2 1/4 inches deep. This pan probably cannot replace that stock pan.

    No filter supports or extensions are needed since this pan is the same internal depth as the 3.3 inches deep stock pan. On the outside, this pan is larger than the stock pan. If the stock pan is not 3.3 inches deep, there will be problems with the filter.

    The stock GM filter is "GM Part No. 24236517" and the AC Delco box has part number "24236933".

    Optional Machining For Temperature Sending Unit

    Optionally, this pan can be machined for a temperature sending unit.

    If you would like PML to drill and tap hole, the machining charge is per hole. A plug for the hole is included.

    The standard size is 1/8 NPT. Call or email if you need a different size.

    Drain Plug and Bolts

    This pan includes a magnetic drain plug and mounting bolts.

    The drain is on the driver's side.
