I merely wanted to test your level of senility, Brockman. I knew you were wandering into a Lowe's...well, at least you said you were.
But, it sounds like your mental status is better than what your wife claims, so all is good. For now.


Maybe if we start telling people that the brain is an app, they will start using it?

Tonight I rolled in from a 686 mile round trip run delivering two gooseneck trailers from Somerset, KY to the retail store in Marietta, GA. White Lightning is at 153,632 miles, so itís just a little overdue for the 30k drain and fill.

When I got home, I left the truck idling, kissed the wife and daughter, changed into some work clothes, and gathered up my drain pan and wrenches. Within 45 seconds of shutting off the truck, my drain and fill was underway.

Iíll leave it draining overnight, although on most of my previous drain and fills, very little additional fluid came out after the :30 mark. When dropping the sump filter, more fluid drains for an extended time whenever the sump filter is out.

Due to the drain plug location of the PML pan, it will be interesting to see if I get the P0868 code, like I normally always got with just the sump filter replacement.

Since this is my first drain and fill with the new pan, I will need to measure the fluid drained. Iím expecting to replace between 10.0 to 10.5 quarts or so.

Well....the results are in.

Looks like I was off a decent amount in regards to the amount drained. According to my empty containers, I drained 12.0 quarts of old Mobil 3309.

Attached are pictures of the magnetic drain plug and my 3 (1) gallon containers of verified Mobil 3309 drained. Yeah.....it was just a partial / half-azzzzzzzzed drain, but my AS69RC thanked me for it.

Additionally......I feel the additional fluid drained is due to the pan design. The OEM pan is angled, keeping the sump filter submerged. The new pan is more flat, and deeper, allowing the sump filter to drain freely after the drain plug is removed.

With that being said....PML touts a 3 to 4 quart increase over the stock pan.

On my OVERNIGHT drain, I will be seeing a 5 quart increase.

Thank you @gsbrockman for the great posts! This is exactly the sort of "bolt-on" stuff I love to do to my truck.
That pan looks great and will probably be my next expenditure!

I just hope it turns out better than the Mag-Hitec rear diff pan I proudly installed (and then un-installed) shortly thereafter.

Thanks again GSB, your posts were great!

Brockman, did you borrow my diff plug for that photo?

Actually, there was very little on it when I checked before this trip. I'll pull the cover when back home and see how much the external magnet it put on the cover has picked up.
Plus, by pulling the cover I can get rid of any chunks too large for the magnets to hold.

Maybe if we start telling people that the brain is an app, they will start using it?

Nope......I swear thatís my transmission pan drain plug.

Where are you off to now? Is CA calling you home?

Okay, good, I really didn't want to see that much crap on mine again. But now I need to get a mag plug on my tranny pan...that looked, umm...not perfect for piece of mind.

No, I'll lazy out and put a couple of strong magnets on my stock pan instead. Less work, same result...maybe.

Yep, at an event in CA after a 10 year absence. Based on what people here are saying (not a true cross section of CA voters in general), this state will lose another several thousand citizens real soon.

Define “this”......
  • Drain and fill -OR-
  • Sump filter and fluid change
