PML designed this deep pan to help the TorqShift 5R110 transmission better handle the high stresses of towing and hauling. It fits the 5R110 automatic transmission used in the F250, F350, F450, F550, E350, and E450 with these engines:

  • 2003-2007, some 2008 and newer, with 6.0 Power Stroke diesel
  • 2005-2007, some 2008 and newer, with 6.8 V10

2008 and Newer Ford Trucks

In 2008, Ford added a new style of transmission pan and filter. The new style has a larger transmission pan and a filter that is internal, located inside the pan. 2008 is a transition year. Newer vehicles can have either the a "new style" transmission pan with an internal filter or the "old style" pan with an external filter. Please check which you have before ordering.

External Filter Style Pan
Pictured at left is the old style stock pan and external filter. The middle of the pan is about 3 inches wide. If you have an external spin-on transmission oil filter near the bell housing (as shown), this PML pan, part number 9973, is for you.

The Ford logo is on the side.

Internal Filter Style Pan
Pictured at left here is the new style stock pan. The middle is about 4 1/2 inches wide. It is larger to accommodate an internal filter. If you have this larger pan with internal filter, PML's new TorqShift transmission pan, part number 11049, is for you.

The Ford logo is in the middle.

Excursion and F250 with 5.4L Owners

Some models of the Excursion and the F250 with the 5.4L gas engine have clearance issues and cannot accommodate a deeper pan. A larger aftermarket pan may or may not work on your vehicle. Using the dimensions above, check your vehicle before ordering. Look for clearance problems especially with frame cross members and the exhaust.

These images show the stock pan and exhaust routing on a 2005 F250 5.4L gas engine truck.

The exhaust is routed too close to the transmission pan to allow for the larger PML pan.

Optional Machining for Temperature Sending Unit

Drilling and tapping for use with aftermarket sensors and gages is an option. This pan has two locations that can be machined, one on the driver's side and one on the passenger's side. These locations 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.

About Filters

PML 5R110 TorqShift Pan Interior

PML designed this pan to work with the stock filter.

The pan has cast-in filter supports inside the pan (see image at left). The fluid level is at the same place with the PML pan as with the stock pan. The pick up for the transmission fluid is at the point with the PML pan as with the stock pan. A filter extension is not needed.

About Gaskets

PML recommends a flexible cork or cork composite gasket for this pan, such as this:

This cork gasket is a replacement for Ford OEM part number E9TZ-7A191-A. We ordered it from and their part number is 3072A. This gasket will work with E4OD, 4R100 and 5R110 transmissions.

We do not recomment hard, reusable gaskets for our pans. These gaskets work best with stamped steel pans.
