  • 727, A727 (36RH, 37RH)

PML designed this pan to work with a variety of vehicles with these Dodge TorqueFlite transmissions. PML added capacity and fins for cooling. This pan is only one inch deeper than the stock pan to maintain clearance on most vehicles. Dimensions are provide in above link and you should always check your vehicle for clearance before ordering a larger transmission pan.

For 2007 and newer 6.7 Cummins diesel trucks, please see our Dodge 68RFE transmission pan.

Four wheel drive Durango & Dakota will likely have exhaust and frame clearance problems with a deeper pan.

Filter and Gasket Information

PML designed this pan to work with the stock filter and gasket. A filter extension is not needed with a PML pan. This pan is one inch deeper than stock and there is plenty of mixing of fluid due to vehicle movement as well as the fluid being sucked into the filter and returned from the oil cooler to prevent a stagnant layer at the bottom. The filter and oil level are at the same location with the PML pan and the stock pan.


The drain is on the driver's side of the vehicle shown at right. A magnetic drain plug and all mounting bolts are included with the pan.

A hole for a temperature sending unit can optionally be machined also on the driver's side a few inches toward the rear of the vehicle from the drain plug.
