Transmission Filter pan gasket

Does anyone know if the factory Motorcraft 5R110 transmission pan filter comes with a pan gasket and if not, whether the factory one is reusable? I'm going to be changing both filters as soon as mine come in later in the week and want to know whether I have to go to Ford and order the gasket too.

Anything special I need to know before swapping fluid and filters? Or is it similar to the way I did it in my F-150?

the factory pan gasket is a reusable gasket.
I just check on this last night as i have to drop my pan and change the tranny temp sender in the valve body under the pan. They told me i do not need a pan gasket.

your gasket is reusable. there is no need to replace it. If you do make sure its a ford reusable. otherwise it wont seal right and it will leak

Thanks. At least that's one part I don't have to buy. Man, they're proud of that Mercon SP stuff.

Guys, I did mine to have a look in 06, and it is a really good re-usable gasket.

Look at the bolt holes to make sure nothing is over tightened or anything to crush it on re-use... The pan is only tin, and if the bolt holes are dimpled in just give them a light tap back out flat, so the bolts do not crush the gasket on re-use... Tighten lightly all the way around once at first, and then more firmly..

But I bought a spare and never used it on my 06 here in OZ...

Not likely to buy another spare one for my new 07 King Ranch FX/4 CC LWB F-350...

I went away, and did an 08 Silverado... Nice car, but light and tinny..

And now I am back home with an 07... The last of the Saddle Leather look King Ranch... Home to stay I think.. The new 6.4 has too much of everything and a bit gay of a maroon leather. An old horseman like me can't go past my new 07 King Ranch F-350 with only 10,000 miles on the clock..

Most places seem to be at least 5 bucks a quart online. The dealer wanted 8 something. It takes something like 20 quarts, so that gets really expensive really fast. I've looked at all the auto parts stores online, and none list it for sale, but I might drive by tomorrow and see for sure. Advance stocks a lot of Motorcraft parts.

You'll find that you don't need near that much when you change it. I bought 20 quarts and still have 6 bottles left. The torque converter and tranny cooler/plumbing is likely responsible for the other 6...
