For information on differences between AOD, AODE, 4R70 (4R70W , 4R70E), and 4R75 (4R75W, 4R75E) transmissions, click here. Select AOD or AODE, 4R70, 4R75 when you order.
This transmission pan fits 1981 and newer 2WD & 4WD Ford vehicles with automatic overdrive transmissions such as Mustang, Thunderbird, F150, Expedition and Lincoln Mark VII. There are many configurations so please check your vehicle to verify transmission and clearance.
Lincoln Town Cars and limos based on the Town Car also have installed this pan. Work vehicles like limousines appreciate the easier maintenance and extra capacity for cooling to extend the transmission life.
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.
PML recommends an aftermarket gasket (rubber, cork or similar) designed to work with the stock pan.
