This heavy duty, extra capacity PML transmission pan fits the Ford 6R80 transmission.
PML designed this 6R80 pan for:
We designed this pan for the 6R80 but it has also been installed on the similar 6R60, 6R75, and 6R100 transmissions. Some vehicles with the Ford 6R80, 6R75, and 6R60 transmissions are:
Configurations vary so always check your vehicle. Verify what transmission you and and look for ground and clearance and interference from frame cross members or exhaust.
6R100 transmission: We have heard that in 2017 and newer F250 gas engine trucks, Ford switched to a new 6R100 TorqShift transmission, which is similar to the 6R80. Stock pans are the same. Check clearance and fitment carefully.
Explorer owners should plan on temporarily removing the cross member.. On the Ford Explorer, the pan is a very close fit and two bolts are difficult to access because of the cross member and the transmission cooler lines. Many customers have temporarily removed the cross member to gain access. A ball head t handle hex wrench might also work. See installations below.
Inside of PML 6R80 Pan

This image shows the inside of the stock and PML pan and the Ford 6R80 transmission with filter. The pickup of the filter sits in the deep area of the stock pan.
The deepest part of the PML pan is the same as the deep part of the stock pan so fluid pick up is at the same level with a PML pan or the stock pan. The fluid level is at the same place also.
Filter and Gasket Information for PML 6R80 Transmission Pan
PML design this pan to work with the stock filter and gasket. Filter supports on the bottom of the pan keep the filter in place (see above picture with stock pan and transmission). The transmission fluid is at the same level with a PML pan as with the stock pan and the pick up point is at approximately the same as with the stock pan.
A customer provided possible filter part numbers:
For the gasket, a composite or flexible rubber cork gasket will work well with a PML pan. Hard rubber gaskets with ribs can be easily damaged and leak or keep the bolts from tightening. Some folks like to use RTV but you have to be very careful not to get any inside the pan The stock aluminum gasket with rubber trim can be used if it is clean and free of nicks.
Drain for PML 6R80 Transmission Pan
PML placed the drain hole on the left (driver side in US) near the rear of the vehicle.
A magnetic drain plug is included with the pan and all the mounting bolts. The side location is safer since there is less chance for damage than on the bottom. There is still easy access for maintenance. A boss on the other side of the pan in an alternate location.

Optional Machining for Temperature Sending Unit
Drilling and tapping for use with aftermarket sensors and gages is an option. This pan has a location on the passenger's side of the pan that can accommodate from 1/8 to 1/2 NPT. PML has a machine shop on site and can machine a pan to your location and thread specifications. There is a $45 machining charge.
Brian installed this PML 6R80 transmission pan on his 2016 F150 4WD with the 5.0 Liter engine. He reported that the installation was straight forward and he had no problems with clearance.
Steve installed this PML 6R80 pan on his 2013 F–150 V8 XLT. The installation was a simple bolt-on process. Even thought this is a deep pan, the exhaust and frame are still much closer to the ground than the pan so there are not any clearance issues. Our thanks to Steve for installing our pan.
Watch a video of the installation of this pan on a F–150.
Steve also installed a PML differential cover on his F–150. He used PML part number 7092 (click on link for information and images). The PML YouTube Channel also has a video showing the differential cover installation.
Chris installed the PML transmission pan for the Ford 6R80 on his 2011 F150 5.0L 4x4 truck. Chris reported that the pan fits well without any clearance issues. He used the OE pan gasket. Our thanks to Chris for his feedback and pictures.
2010 Sport Trac with PML Transmission Pan
Mike installed this PML 6R80 transmission pan on his 2010 Sport Trac. The clearance on the driver's side front cross member is very close (about ¼ inch) and accessing some of the bolts was difficult. He found a ball head t handle hex wrench was a big help. Another customer temporarily removed the frame cross member to get the pan installed.
Mike wrote up his installation on the Explorer forum: ExplorerForum.com.
2007 Explorer Sport Trac
These images show the installation of this PML 6R80 deep pan on a 2007 Explorer Sport Trac with the 4.6 V8 engine. Jeff, the owner of the Sport Trac, painted a cast finish PML pan black before he installed the pan.
Jeff took some notes of his installation. He found the transmission cooler lines run close to front cross member so he could not access three of the front pan bolts. He ended up removing the cross member to remove the stock pan and replace it with a PML pan. This doesn't sound like a big issue unless your vehicle (like his) resides in the rust belt and "it didn't want to come out that easy." Jeff reported the fit is tight but clearances were good all around. Many thanks to Jeff for this pictures and comments.
2013 Mazda BT50 with PML Transmission Pan
John from Australia installed this PML transmission pan on his 2013 Mazda BT50 with the 5 cylinder 3.2 LT Puma motor. The BT50 trucks are similar to the Ford Ranger T6/PX and to the F150 in the US.
The installation went well. The only issue was the selector cable bracket has to be partially removed to allow the pan to go up. It is also in the way of any subsequent draining but careful use of a disk grinder might solve that. It took 9.2 quarts to refill. Many thanks to John for purchasing a PML pan and providing us with these pictures.
