Transmission Pan, GM 6L90, 6L90E Deep, As-Cast
PML transmission pans feature sand-cast aluminum construction with raised fins, thick walls to add strength to the transmission case, and a machined gasket surface for a secure seal.
Because the pan is deeper than stock, the pan has filter supports cast in. A deeper filter or extension is not needed since the transmission fluid is at the same level with a PML pan as with the stock pan.
Volume: 2 1/2 to 3 quarts over stock
Dimensions: Click here for dimensions in a new tab or window. The truck stock pan is about 3 1/2 inches deep so the PML pan is about 3 inches deeper than the stock pan. Note that the 6L80 transmission pan is similar in shape but the 6L80 is shorter at 17 1/2 inches.
Number of Bolts: 18 (there are 20 holes, 2 holes locate the gasket and 18 holes for bolts to hold the pan to the transmission case)
Description and Applications
PML designed this pan for 2007 and newer heavy duty Chevrolet and GM trucks and SUVs. This pan features:
- Extra capacity, fins and aluminum construction to dissipate heat from transmission fluid
- Drain plug for easier maintenance
- Thick walls to add strength to the transmission housing
- Thick gasket flange, machined flat, for a leak-free seal
- Step in the back to clear exhaust
This pan fits the GM 6L90, 6L90E transmission, typically found on these vehicles:
- Silverado 2500 and 3500 HD, 6.0L, 2007 to 2015
- Sierra 2500 and 3500 HD, 6.0L, 2007 to 2015
- Tahoe 6.0L, not hybrid, 6.0L, some models starting in 2008
- Yukon HD, 6.0L, not hybrid, 6.0L, some models starting in 2008
- Express Van 2500 and 3500, 4.8L or 6.0L, 2010 to 2015
- Savana Van 2500 and 3500, 4.8L or 6.0L, 2010 to 2015
Trucks and SUVs have a variety of configurations. Look at yours before you order to verify your transmission and clearance. Vans especially should check for clearance.
Cadillac CTS-V, 2009 to 2015, and some new CTS and Camaro ZL1 models have the 6L90 transmission. This pan will fit the transmission but is probably too deep to maintain clearance. We are considering a low profile, stock capacity pan for the 6L90. Also, some of these vehicles need a fill hole on the pan. Let us know if you are interested.
In many cases, you will need to drop the exhaust to install this pan. You would need to drop the exhaust to service the transmission with the stock pan as three bolts are not otherwise accessible. See installation images below that show the routing of the exhaust.
