Benefits

PML designed this 722.6/NAG1 transmission pans with these features:

  • Cooling — extra capacity on deep models, fins, and aluminum construction for reported temperature drops of 10 to 35 degrees
  • Clearance — deep middle to clear cross members on 2007 and newer models
  • Drain plug — on the side of the pan for safety
  • Secure seal — machined flat flange, no more retaining clips and formed gasket
  • Strength — high quality, thick walls

Applications for This PML Transmission Pan

PML designed our deep middle NAG1, 722.6 (W5A580, WA580, W5A380, W5J400) transmission pan for:

  • Sprinter Vans, 2500 and 3500 with the W5A380 transmission, 2002 to 2013
  • Sprinter Vans (Mercedes), 2500 and 3500, 3.0 diesel with 722.6, 2WD, 2010 to 2016
  • Jeep, Dodge, Chrysler, and Mercedes vehicles with 722.6/NAG1

From about 2002 to 2013 Dodge, Mercedes and Freightliner all made Sprinter Vans with the W5A380 transmission. 2007 and newer models have cross members running across the rear and front of the stock pan. PML put a step in the front and rear of the pan to clear these frame cross members.

T1N Sprinters: 2002 to 2006 T1N Sprinters may not have cross members below the stock pan and may be able to use our stock capacity or deep pan.

NCV3 Sprinters: 2007 to 2013 NCV3 Sprinters usually have cross members below the stock pan and will need this pan with the steps in the front and back for clearance.

Sprinter with Winnebago: The Sprinter cab and chassis is used under many Winnebago models, such as View and Navion. This pan has been installed on several of these. We have had a customer report that with the hydraulic jack system by HWH for leveling there is still clearance for this PML pan. The leveling kit is toward the rear of the rear cross member and does not create any additional clearance issues.

4WD Sprinters: The drive shaft may be too close to the pan. PML pans have thick walls. Jason tried to intall this PML pan on his 2015 Mercedes 3500 Diesel Sprinter 4WD and the side of the pan hit the drive shaft.

Always check your vehicle before ordering to verify set up and clearance.

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

Our thanks to the Sprinter community for their help with this pan design.

We think this pan will fit Mercedes G55 AMG Wagons but have not yet had an installation.

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'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.

From left to right: inside of PML pan showing filter supports, stock filter

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 bottom of 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 image 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.

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.

PML added a tab for the shield to bolt on to in July 2018. For pans without the tab, you might need to fabricate a connector or slightly bend the shield to bolt onto the PML pan.

Drain for PML 722.6/NAG1 Deep Middle Transmission Pan

PML NAG1, 722.6 Sprinter transmission pan drain hole

PML placed the drain hole on the driver's side, near the rear of the vehicle for part number 11124 (as shown in picture).

A magnetic drain plug is included with the pan and all the mounting bolts. The side location is safer than the bottom since there is less chance for damage than on the bottom. There is still easy access for maintenance.

Locations for Optional Temperature Sending Unit Machining

This pan can be drilled and tapped for a temperature sending unit. There are locations on the driver's side and the passenger's side of the pan. In the above picture, see the round, cylindrical shaped features. These areas can be drilled and tapped to specifications from 1/8 NPT to 1/2 NPT.

PML has a machine shop in the building and can drill and tap to your specification for $45 per hole. Machining usually takes about a day. Choose this option and specify the size in the shopping card or when you call to order.

Installations

We appreciate all those folks that email us about their installations and send us pictures. Many thanks for these images and for selecting PML transmission pans!

2006 Sprinter, Winnebago Navion 23H

Jonathan Dwight in Washington installed this transmission pan on his 2006 Dodge Sprinter Navion 23 H with Mercedes 5 cyl. diesel engine and transmission.

The bell housing has humps which hang down. These humps are on 2006 and older Sprinters. PML and Jonathan worked together to make sure the PML pan fit without any interference.

2007 Winnebago View Coach with a 2006 Sprinter Cab/Chassis

Charles in Georgia emailed us about his installation of this PML transmission pan on his 2006 Dodge Sprinter cab/chassis with a 2007 Winnebago View coach on it. This is a T1N Sprinter with the 5 cylinder diesel.

Charles used Mopar sealant (no gasket) and cut the heads of some long 6mm screws to use as alignment pins to make the installation easier. The Mopar and screws are shown in the picture below. Charles installed a transmission fluid temperature gauge and sending unit in the PML pan. PML machined the pan for the temperature sending unit on the driver's side, toward the front. The drain plug is towards the rear.

Charles let us know about some small humps on the bell housing that hit the front of the pan. These humps are only on certain models. Charles filed off a little material from the front edge of the pan and everything fit fine. PML has adjusted our pan so no modification is needed on future installations (reported to PML on April 2017, fixed June 2017).

2007 View 23J on a 2006 Mercedes Benz T1N Sprinter Chassis, WA380 Transmission

Roger installed this pan on his 2007 Winnebago View coach in June 2017. He does not have a leveling system. This is a T1N Sprinter with the 5 cylinder diesel and bell housing "humps". Our pan bolted on without any issue. Here are his comments:

Excellent instructions and illustrations. Installed with your gasket using center bolts first to center gasket and pan. Did not really pay attention to front where it abuts bell housing but slowly, progressively snugged up all 6 bolts in crisscross pattern. Pan and gasket aligned PERFECTLY. Torqued progressively to 90in.lbs and all is good. Looks too purdy to be under the vehicle and out of site.

2013 Sprinter 3500 3.0

Dean Stewart Construction uses this Sprinter 3500 3.0 as a mobile office. To keep the transmission in better shape, the PML pan adds extra capacity and a drain for easier maintenance. Dean had PML drill and tap the pan for a temperature sending unit so he could monitor the transmission fluid temps.
