2016 Nissan Frontier V6 4.0L
Carlos installed this pan on his 2016 Frontier Crew Cab SV V6 4.0L truck. The installation was straightforward, no issues. He added almost two additional quarts of fluid. Watch a video of the installation:
2006 Frontier Nismo Shrockworks Skid Plate
Cody installed this PML transmission oil pan on his Frontier. He has a Shrockworks skid plate, which cleared the PML pan but doesn't fit his truck quite right yet. Cody also helped us with the design of the pan by providing dimensions to the frame and available clearances. Our thanks to Cody to working with us.
2014 Xterra Pro 4x P&P Engineering Skid Plate
Lester installed this PML transmission pan on his 2014 Xterra. Our thanks to Lester for the pictures and feedback. He had these comments on the installation:
The installation of the pan was straight forward, took out the 22 bolts that attach the oem pan. Didn't need any special tools. The hardware that you guys provided I just used a regular allen wrench attached to my 3/8" socket driver. The pan cleared my aftermarket skid plate, which made by P&P Engineering. I also installed a glow shift tranny gauge so I could monitor the temp. during my offroad trips.
2014 Frontier SV V6 4x4 Hefty Fab Skid Plate
Tyler installed this PML pan on his 2014 Frontier with his full set of Hefty Fabworks Aluminum skids and Whiteknuckle sliders. He added 6 quarts of fluid total, which is 1 1/2 quarts more than stock. There is plenty of clearance between the PML pan and the skid plate, as shown in his pictures. Our thanks to Tyler for choosing a PML pan for his Frontier.

Filter and Gasket Information
The filter on the RE5R05A is a screen, and it bolts on to the valve body of the transmission so no filter supports or extensions are needed.
This transmission pan works with stock gaskets.
These are available from a local Nissan dealer or auto parts store.
Image shows the driver/left side of the pan where the drain is located. The drain is toward the front of the vehicle.
PML includes a magnetic drain plug and all mounting bolts with the pan.
Optional Temperature Sending Unit Machining
Image shows this transmission pan with a temperature sending unit installed on the driver side of the pan.
Optionally, this pan can be machined for a temperature sending unit. The pan has three locations that can be drilled. Two locations on the passenger/right side of the pan and one on the driver/right side of the pan.
If you would like PML to drill and tap a 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.
