Different Trans pans....

Just thought I would let you all know....The transmission pans from a 2000 4R100 and a 2001 4R100 are different. Maybe it is common knowledge and I just didn't catch that tidbit, but mean4.6 on here just got a new to him 2001 F250 and did a filter change and found that the tool that put the pan on prior to him overtorqued the bolts and bent the sealing surface and since I had my old pan from my trans I just gave it to him to use. Went to put it on tonight and they are definitely different and NOT interchangeable. I will post pics in a few.

Here is the picture.....The 2000 pan is on the left, the 2001 on the right....The 2000 pan won't fit over (actually, I guess it would be under) the filter/pick up. Go figure.

You know...I was just looking at this picture and realized that his pan on the right says metric on it, while my old pan on the left does not. Is that significant? If so, what is the difference?

The one on the left when I gave it to him didn't have a magnet, that is the one out of the one on the right. We didn't realize they were different until we went to put it up. (I don't know why the drain plug being in a different spot didn't tip us off) The drain plug is in the center of the magnet of the left one. I don't know if mine (on the left) originally had a magnet or not, since I got a mag hytec pan when Suncoast did my trans. They just gave me my pan and bolts back. Maybe it is in the mag hytec pan??

I seriously doubt it. The guy I bought mine from, said the transmission never had any work except for one fluid change before I bought it. I can't double check because he still has the pan, but I think it says "Ford" on it too.

Mine is a 2001 and it has the metric written on it... That is just strange... I even interchanged pans when I installed my BTS, hopefully there wasn't a difference..

Depending on what you interchanged with, I don't think it would matter. Any of the deep pans should work just fine. If you would have had the wrong one on I am pretty sure you would know it. Mine physically would NOT go on his.

Ok...I was meaning to check this anyway....I just went to Autozone.com and found that in 2000 they offered two different filter kits P/N TF325 for a deep pan and TF350 for a shallow. In 2001 Autozone only shows the TF325. Interesting little tidbit.
