Default Trans pan with drain plug

I have an 03 GT Turbo. Will be changing trans filter again. I remember on here somewhere, someone posted where you could purchase a trans pan with a drain. Anyone remember where? Did a search could not find it.
Thanks Larry

Nobody has come back to answer you and I personally don't know of a pan with a drain plug. I know you can buy removable plugs and have someone tap the right size hole if you really need to do it.

I'm not really looking for one but it's a good thing you didn't send him any money. I have mine flushed every 50,000 miles, don't need a plug to drop only a couple of quarts between that.

The pan with built in drain plug I installed was made by Dorman. Many online vendors sell it. Here is just one example: 2001-2009 Chrysler PT Cruiser Automatic Transmission Pan - Transmission - Dorman 01-09 PT Cruiser Automatic Transmission Pan - 1535-07012375 - PartsGeek

Be aware that the plug and gasket that it comes with will be a joke and will never seal. For about $5 you can get a Motormite replacement at O'Reilly's or Pep Boys with a gasket built into the flange. That will work. I think it is a 14 mm by 1.5 thread, but take the worthless plug with you to be sure.

When you change it out, be sure to also change the transmission filter with a MoPar filter. And be very sure to get the pan and transmission surfaces clean with alcohlo before mating them together with the RTV glurp.

I agree i just did mine for the 3rd time and really don't plan to do it again and then the other thing is you can drain the fluid but you cant change the filter

my Chevy duramax has a external filter and a drain plug and a whole lot of red stuff in there

That was Quick!!!!!! Ordered the pan on Monday night & it was delivered today with regular shipping. It is a good thick metal & is straight. Will install it when the weather warms up. Then no more trans oil baths. Thanks again Matt42.
