This heavy duty transmission oil pan fits the Nissan RE5R05A transmission and is designed to clear the frame cross members on Frontier, Pathfinder, Xterra and similar vehicles AND work with most skid plates.

Benefits

  • Frame clearance
  • Skid plate clearance with overall height of 2.8 inches (enough for many skid plates)
  • Extra capacity, fins, and aluminum construction for cooling transmission fluid
  • A drain hole and magnetic plug for easier maintenance
  • Thick walls and gasket flange to add strength to the transmission case and provide a secure seal

Applications

PML designed this pan for 2005 and newer Nissan Frontier, Xterra, and Pathfinder:

  • Frontier, 2005 and newer
  • Pathfinder, 2004 to 2012, with V8 5.6 or V6 4.0
  • Xterra, 2005 and newer
  • Suzuki Equator, 2009 to 2012, may also be able to use this pan
  • Other vehicles needing frame clearance with the Nissan RE5R0RA transmission

Note: We cannot guarantee that this pan will fit. Many skid plates are available and configurations vary so always check your vehicle to verify transmission and clearance. There is a restocking fee for returns. This pan has been installed on Frontiers with several skid plate models without a problem. See Installations section below for examples and pictures.

We have two other pans for the Nissan RE5R05A transmission, a deep pan that is 3.5 quarts over stock and a low profile pan for 350Z and Infiniti vehicles and trucks needing clearance.

The 2013/2014 version of this transmission pan had slants on the front and rear and was 4.1 inches deep.

Filter and Gasket Information

The filter on the RE5R05A is a screen, and it bolts on to the valve body of the transmission so no filter supports or extensions are needed.

This transmission pan works with stock gaskets. These are usually about $25 from your local Nissan dealer.

Machining for Temperature Sensors

The pan has three locations that can be drilled and tapped for an aftermarket gage or sensor. Two locations are on the passenger's side and one location is on the driver's side toward the rear. If you would like PML to machine the pan, the machining charge is $40 . The boss can accommodate a 1/8 NPT hole.

2006 Frontier Nismo Shrockworks Skid Plate

Cody installed this PML transmission oil pan on his Frontier. He has a Shrockworks skid plate, which cleared the PML pan but doesn't fit his truck quite right yet. Cody also helped us with the design of the pan by providing dimensions to the frame and available clearances. Our thanks to Cody to working with us.

2014 Xterra Pro 4x P&P Engineering Skid Plate

Lester installed this PML transmission pan on his 2014 Xterra. Our thanks to Lester for the pictures and feedback. He had these comments on the installation:

The installation of the pan was straight forward, took out the 22 bolts that attach the oem pan. Didn't need any special tools. The hardware that you guys provided I just used a regular allen wrench attached to my 3/8" socket driver. The pan cleared my aftermarket skid plate, which made by P&P Engineering. I also installed a glow shift tranny gauge so I could monitor the temp. during my offroad trips.
