trans pan drain plug

Has anyone ever put a drain plug on their trans pan? Gonna change fluid and filter tomorrow. Its usually a mess. I use a masons mix tub underneath to catch it all. A plug like the oil pan drain plug would be sweet. Less mess with plug let it drain then drop the pan to swap out filter. Anyone?

I'd guess that a 4R100 pan is not the same as a E4OD?

It is a e4od. Looks like theres a spot to drill out and put one.

No I'm asking is the pan and bolt spacing the same between 4R100s and E4ODs? If so, just get a 4R100 pan and use it.

Found a universal kit from advance auto for $7 bucks. Says you just have to drill 1/2" hole in pan to accebt the bolt set up. Seems plausible. I' ll check the inside of the pan again tomorrow..... its been 30k since I last saw it.

Those things always leak.

Buy a pan for a 2000 F350 4x4 with an auto from the ford dealer, it doesnt cost a lot, and get the gasket since its reuseable.

It comes with a drain plug.


The E4OD and 4R100 share the same pan IIRC

Last time I had my pan off, I drilled a 1/4" hole and welded in a nut. Its not high flow, but its a way to get the oil out.

From what I understand, the pans for a 4R100 and E4OD are the same, but I havent actually tried to swap them.

yes they are the same...just find a new one w/a drain plug and you are good to go.

I drilled mine on my first OBS and put a plug in there (there are a few kits floating around). My kit has some seals, nuts and bolt or something like that.
