PML designed this transmission pan for 1981 to 2014 2WD & 4WD Ford trucks and SUVs with automatic overdrive 4 speed transmissions. This pan features extra capacity, cooling fins and strong cast aluminum construction.
The first version of this transmission (the AOD) have one bolt hole in a slightly different location than the 1992/93 and later versions (AODE, 4R70, 4R70W, 4R70E, 4R75E, 4R75W). Be sure to select the correct one when you order.

Cars, such as Mustang and Thunderbird and Lincoln Mark VII, may need PML's stock capacity pan because many cars do enough ground clearance for a deep pan.
Lincoln Town Cars and limos based on the Town Car have installed this pan. Work vehicles like limousines appreciate the easier maintenance and extra capacity for cooling to extend the transmission life.
Trucks and SUVs, such as F150, Expedition, and Mountaineer, offer more clearance and can benefit from the extra fluid to aid in reducing fluid temperatures.
1992 to 1993 F150 trucks generally have the AOD transmission.
1994 to 2010 F150 trucks, Expeditions and Explorers with the Ford 4 speed transmission generally have an AODE, 4R70, 4R75 transmission.
There are many configurations so please check your vehicle to verify transmission and clearance.
Installation Note: On some vehicles, the transmission cross member and mount must be temporarily removed so that you can drop the stock pan and install the PML pan. After installing the PML pan, be sure to reassemble. Thanks to Rick who provided this tip after installing this pan on his 2002 F–150 with the 4R70W transmission.
Shift Lever Note: A customer with a 1967 Ford F-250 TCI AODE transmission noticed that thickness of the PML pan did not allow the shift lever full range of motion. He took the lip back about a 1/4 inch across a 1.5 inch line to get full range of the shift lever.
Filter and Gasket
PML recommends an aftermarket gasket (rubber, cork or similar) designed to work with the stock pan.
Filter requirements for these Ford transmission pans:
Deep filters have metal pick-up tube.
Information for reference only. Installer should verify appropriate transmission and filter and fitment based on the individual vehicle.
