PML designed this pan specifically for C5 Corvette owners who push their Corvettes to the limit and for owners who just want to take care of their Corvettes.
This pan allows for adding transmission fluid through the pan as required by 4L60 transmission in the C5 Corvette. The fill hole is on the driver's side. A plug is included with hardware.
This pan is designed to fit 1997 to 2004 C5 Corvettes with the GM 4 speed automatic transmission. Please check your Corvette as configurations vary.
The drain hole and magnetic drain plug allow for easy transmission servicing to keep your Corvette running smoothly.
2005 C6 Corvette with 4 Speed: This pan may work. There may be a clearance issue with the cradle. Check carefully before ordering.
We have one of these pans on SPECIAL.
The fins on the bottom of the pan and the extra capacity assist with cooling the fluid. Cooler running temperatures reduces wear and tear on the transmission.
PML designed this pan to work with the stock filter for the C5 Corvette 4L60E transmission. The pan has cast-in filter supports so no filter extension is needed.
Please see our Filter Guide for PML Part Number 8650-3 for suggested part numbers and additional information.
Drain and Fill
The fill/level check and drain holes are on the driver's side.
The fill hole functions the same way as on the stock pan.
A magnetic drain plug, fill plug and new mounting bolts are included with each pan.

To avoid problems with filter extensions, PML cast filter supports into the bottom of the pan. See the section on filters.
Drilling and tapping for use with aftermarket sensors and gages is an option. This pan has three locations cast into the pan that can be machined, one on the driver's side and two on the passenger's side. These locations can accommodate from 1/8 NPT 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.
Shift Cable Bracket
You may have to modify your shift cable mounting bracket to use this pan. If the trans pan mounting bolts hold the shift cable bracket on, please reference this article from Vette magazine for details.
This Corvette transmission pan works with inexpensive stock gaskets, such as those made of cork or a rubber cork compound. The gasket flange is machined flat for a secure seal.
