Number of Bolts: 16

This PML pan fits GM 4L60E, 4L65E, 4L70E, and 4L75E transmissions.

PML designed this pan as a heavy duty, extra capacity replacement for the GM deep pan that came with vehicles model year 1999 and newer. The step at the back of the pan matches the step at the rear of the stock pan to clear the exhaust pipe or frame cross member.

The stock GM shallow pan and the stock GM deep pan are shown in the picture below. Please use this image to help identify the pan currently on your vehicle.

Note there are two versions of the stock GM shallow pan. If your vehicle has a shallow pan, other than the few exceptions noted below, please see PML deep pan, part number 8650-1, or PML low profile pan, part number 9297.

Applications

With GM/Chevrolet vehicles, there are many configurations and options, so you should always check your vehicle to verify which transmission you have and look for clearance with exhaust and frame cross members for a larger pan before ordering.

Typically, this PML pan fits these vehicles:

  • Avalanche, 2002 to 2009, 5.3 or 6.0 engine, 4 speed transmission
  • Cadillac Escalade, 1999 to 2006
  • Envoy, 2002 to 2009
  • Express, 1999 to 2014, 4 speed transmission
  • Hummer H2, 2003 to 2007
  • Isuzu Ascender, 2003 to 2009
  • Saab, 9-7, 2005 to 2009
  • Savana, 1999 to 2014, 4 speed transmission
  • Silverado 1500, 1999 to 2013, 4.3, 4.8, 5.3, or 6.0 engine, 4 speed transmission
  • Sierra 1500, 1999 to 2013, 4.3, 4.8, 5.3, or 6.0 engines, 4 speed transmission
  • SSR, 2003 to 2006, 5.3 or LS2 6.0 engine, automatic transmission
  • Suburban 1500, 2000 to 2009, 5.3, 6.0 engine, 4 speed transmission
  • Tahoe, 2000 to 2008, 4.8 and 5.3 engine
  • Tahoe, 2009, 4.8 engine
  • Trailblazer, 2002 to 2009
  • Trailblazer SS, 2006 to 2009
  • Yukon, 2000 to 2008, 4.8 and 5.3 engine
  • Yukon, 2009, 4.8 engine

Some 2007 and newer vehicles have 6 speed transmissions. See PML 6L80 pan or 6L90 pan for those applications.

Note to H3, Colorado 4WD, Canyon 4WD: Some 4WD Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon as well as the Hummer H3 and H3T models have the 4L60E transmission. The front drive shaft on these vehicles is too close to the side of the transmission pan to allow the larger PML transmission pan to be installed.

Do not use this pan on a 700R4 or 4L60 transmission (vehicles about 1993 and older) due to filter incompatibility.

Stock GM Shallow Pan, Exhaust Under Pan, and Want a Deep Pan?

The following trucks and SUVs came with the stock GM shallow pan and may have an exhaust pipe close enough to the pan to prevent the installation of PML deep pan, part number 8650-1. This PML pan, part number 9427, can be used for these applications if you switch to the filter for the GM deep pan. See the section on filters for more information.

  • C1500/K1500, 1996 to 1998, 4.3, 5.0, or 5.7 engine
  • Suburban 1500, 1992 to 1999, 5.7 or 6.5 diesel engine
  • Tahoe, 1995 to 1999, 5.7 engine
  • Yukon 1992 to 1999, 5.7 engine
If you have the stock GM shallow pan and do not have the exhaust routed under your stock pan, then see PML deep pan, part number 8650-1 or PML low profile pan, part number 9297.

Filter Information

PML designed this pan to work with the 4L60E filters that fit the stock GM deep pan. Please see our Filter Guide for PML Part Number 9427.

Filter Supports, Temperature Sending Unit Locations and Drain Hole

This transmission pan has cast-in filter supports as shown in image. A filter extension is not needed.

The drain hole is on the driver's side, which is the top of the image.

Optionally, this pan can be machined for a temperature sending unit. The pan has bosses on the passenger's side and the driver's side that can be machined for aftermarket gages and sensors. PML has a machine shop on-site and can drill and tap to your specifications between 1/8 NPT and 1/2 NPT for a $40 machining charge.

Avalanche 1500 PML Transmission Pan Install

In the Chevy Avalanche Fan Club Forum, a 9/14/10 post described the installation of this PML transmission pan on a 1500 Avalanche.

We have summarized his steps below and here's a link to the whole write-up.

  • Removed skid plate
  • Removed the engine mount bolts and jacked up the back of the transmission
  • Put in the PML pan - a long handled ball-tip 6mm hex key recommended
  • Refilled with 6 quarts of fluid (drained 4 out plus 2 more for the deeper pan)
