Applications for This PML Transmission Pan

Many Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Mercedes vehicles have the NAG1, 722.6 (W5A580, WA580, W5A380, W5J400) transmission so PML has designed three different pans for the transmission.

Some vehicles which typically can use this pan are:

  • Jeep Grand Cherokee (SRT8, Laredo, Limited, Overland), 2006 to 2013
  • Dodge Magnum, Charger, Challenger, 2006 to 2013
  • Chrysler 300, 300C with 5 speed transmissions, 2005 to 2012
  • Mercedes (several models/years, sound plate may need altering, see Installations below)

Always check your vehicle to verify transmission and clearance as configurations vary. Scroll down to the Installations section at the bottom of this page for pictures of vehicles with this transmisson pan.

This pan is available in three finishes. Learn more about finishes and construction of PML parts.

Benefits

  • Cooling — extra capacity, fins, and aluminum construction for reported temperature drops of 10 to 30 degrees
  • Clearance — step to clear frame
  • Drain — on the side for safety, pan includes magnetic drain plug and mounting bolts
  • Secure seal — machined flat flange, no more retaining clips and formed gasket
  • Strength — high quality, thick walls

PML makes three pans for the NAG1/722.6 transmission. Need help figuring out which pan you need? Check out this video or see our NAG1/722.6 Transmission Guide for help.

Gasket

PML gasket for our 722.6, NAG1 heavy duty transmission pans

PML offers a cork and rubber gasket for $18 for those who prefer a gasket over RTV.

PML's pan is not compatible with the stock gasket. PML's gasket is not compatible with the stock pan.

You can add this gasket to your order when you purchase this pan.

PML design this pan to work with the stock filter. The Mercedes part number on the filter PML used during design and development is 140 277 00 95. There are filter supports cast into the pan to hold the filter in place at the same level as the stock pan. The filter supports eliminate the need for an extension.

Dipstick and Transmission Fluid Level

The fluid level should be at the same level in the stock pan and a PML pan. On many vehicles, the dipstick uses the bottom of the pan as a stop. PML pans have a ledge where the dipstick hits at the same level as the stock pan even though the PML pan is larger overall. In the above images of the inside of the pan, you can see the square ledge near the filter supports.

Many vehicles with these transmissions do not have a dipstick and the correct fluid level is based on temperature. The cap for the transmission fluid fill and level check can say "See Dealer". The installer of a replacement pan needs to have the correct tools to replace the transmission fluid according to the factory instructions. PML does not provide a dipstick.

Shield on Passenger's Front Corner

Some vehicles have a shield that attaches to the retaining clip at the front, passenger side corner of the stock pan.

Pans available since March 2016 have a tab for the shield to bolt on to. If you have an older pan, you will need to fabricate a connector or slightly bend the shield to bolt onto the PML pan.

Drain

PML placed the drain hole on the driver's side, near the rear of the vehicle. On a few of the first parts we made, the drain is near the front.

A magnetic drain plug is included along with new mounting bolts.

Side locations are safer than the bottom and have easy access.

Optional Machining for Temperature Sending Unit

This pan has three locations that can be machined for a temperature sending unit. One location is on the driver's side and two are one the passenger's sideof the pan. These locations are circular bosses and can accomodate between 1/8 NPT and 1/2 NPT. PML can drill and tap the hole to order for a $40 machining charge.

PML Transmission Pan on a 2005 Sprinter 2500

Sprinter vans with frame cross members under the front and rear of the stock pan need to use PML Part Number 11124. This Sprinter could use any of the PML 722.6/NAG1 transmission pans. There is plenty of clearance to the frame and to the ground.

PML Transmission Pan on a Mercedes C55

Damian installed this PML deep 722.6/NAG1 transmission pan on a 2005 Mercedes AMG Class C55. The pan installed easily, fit great and did not reduce overall ground clearance. The PML pan does not allow for the undercarriage sound dampening plate to mount as designed so he cut out the bottom of the plate below the pan. This also aids with air flow and cooling. Although the PML pan is too deep to not hit the plate, the exhaust hangs down further than the PML pan. Our thanks to Damian for the pictures and comments.

PML Transmission Pan on a 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8

George installed PML's transmission pan on his 2006 Charger. He added 1.5 quarts more fluid then went to the Dodge dealer to get the fluid level checked. Before removing the stock pan, he supported the transmission then removed the transmission support brace. This gave him access to all the bolts.

PML Transmission Pan on a 2006 Magnum SRT8

Stefan installed the PML deep pan for NAG1/722.6 transmission on his 2006 Dodge Magnum SRT 8. Here is a link to more pictures posted on Facebook: PML Pan on Dodge Magnum. He had these notes on the installation:

  • Removed the cross member for access to the two rear bolts
  • Used Chrysler AT RTV to seal the pan to the transmission
  • Cross member fit with the PML pan, no clearance issues
  • Stock fluid was 4.8 quarts, added 1.7 more quarts with PML pan for a total of 6.5 quarts
  • Used chart to get accurate read for fluid level at a temperature (chart found on-line or in Hanes manual) while car in reverse or drive
  • A special dipstick is needed (can be ordered at dealership, local parts store or Amazon)
  • Drain plug in the rear works well

Our thanks to Stefan for his comments and pictures.

PML Transmission Pan on a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee

HGM Transmission Controllers installed PML's 722.6/NAG1 transmission pan on a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo V6 3.7L. The installation was a simple bolt-on process. Even thought this is a deep pan, the exhaust and frame are still much closer to the ground than the pan so there are not any clearance issues. Our thanks to HGM for installing our pan.

PML Transmission Pan on a 2007 Grand Cherokee 3.0 Diesel

Robert installed PML's deep pan for the NAG1/722.6 transmission on his 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the 3.0 diesel engine. He is very happy with his PML Pan and reported that "The directions were well written and easy to follow. The bolt hole depth check was a very important detail. The fit and finish of the cast pan was excellent. There was tons of room for the pan to clear the exhaust and drive train." He added 1.75 quarts more than stock. Our thanks to Robert for email us his pictures and comments.

PML Transmission Pan on a 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

Troy installed this pan on his 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8. The design of the Jeep makes for a close fit and the passenger side bolts were difficult to reach and he recommends a long allen head sockets. He reported about 0.300 inch clearance between the PML pan and the catalytic converter. From the exhaust hanger to the PML pan, he has 0.070 inches. He removed 5.5 quarts and added 8 quarts. He used RTV. No leaks and shifting is good.

Troy took fluid temperatures using the Torque Pro app and reading the PIDS input from the transmission directly. He saw about an 8 degree F lower termpature in daily driving and the extra capacity takes a little longer to get hot, which is perfect for his racing.

PML Transmission Pan on a 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

Randall reported that his transmission fluid was 190 degrees after 30 min of driving before installing this PML pan. After he installed the PML pan and driving for 30 minutes with the temp outside at 90 degrees the fluid temperature was at 170 degrees. He removed about 4 quarts and added 1.3 gallons plus half a quart. He purchased a Dorman NAG1 transmission level dipstick from O'Reillys so he could check his fluid level.

For the filter, Randall suggests checking that the o–ring from the old filter is removed and that the new filter seats correctly in the slot in the valve body (see image at left).

He did not have any clearance issues from the larger PML transmission pan. It cleared the frame, exhaust and skid plate.
