This PML pan fits many models of rear wheel drive cars with 4-speed automatic transmissions. GM used this transmission from 1982-1990. Examples of vehicles using the 200-4R transmissions are:

  • Buick Regal T Type
  • Grand National
  • Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS

The 200-4R (also know as the 200 R4) transmission is popular replacement transmission for high performance applications.

PML designed this pan to meet the demands of high performance cars that require a lower profile than our extra capacity 200-4R deep pan. The pan has several improvements over a stock pan: stiff construction, fins and aluminum material for cooling, drain hole, temperature sensor boss, thick machined gasket flange for a secure seal, and filter supports

The four rectangular areas on the bottom of the pan are the filter supports. The drain is at the top, right of the picture.

Filter Information

This PML pan works with stock filters. Example part numbers are: AC Delco TF234, Fram FT1057B, Fram FT1057C, Hastings TF60, Purolator P1194, Wix 58896

PML 200 4R transmission pans have filter supports so a filter extension is not needed.

The supports hold the filter at the same level as the stock pan. The distance from the bottom of the stock pan to the top of the flange is 2.4 to 2.6 inches. The distance from PML filter supports to the top of the flange is the same. The stock filter is about 4.8 inches tall.

Some customers have reported to us that a 700R4 filter may also work with our 200 4R transmission pans. PML does not have any experience with this or recommend this.

Filter information is provided for reference only. Installer should verify transmission, filter and fitment based on the individual vehicle.

PML GM 200-4R drain and temp sending unit locations

Drain Location and Optional Temperature Sending Unit Machining

The PML 200 4R transmission pan has two bosses (thick areas) on the casting for drilling and tapping.

The location on the driver side is drilled and tapped for the drain. A magnetic drain plug is included with each pan.

The boss on the passenger side of the pan is not machined. If needed, it can be drilled and tapped for a temperature sending unit. For PML to machine the hole, there is a $45.00 charge.

1970 Corvette

Dave in New Zealand has a 1970 Corvette TT2 with a GM 200 4R transmission.

Dave needed to fabricate a bracket to hold the shifter cable because the original one would not fit with the heavy duty PML pan. The middle picture (left hand side of the car) shows the bracket. He took the picture without the exhaust pipe fitted to get a good view.

1964 El Camino

Avery installed this PML transmission pan and PML Small Block Chevy valve covers on his 1964 El Camino.

Avery’s El Camino has a custom crossmember about 1/2" too far forward, but this PML pan dropped right on. He said it was actually easier to install the PML pan than the stock one was to remove!
