I want to change the automatic trans fluid in my 98 vette, but I don't know if I have a shallow or deep trans pan. How do I find out which one I have.

Thanks for your help :thumbsup:

Unless you're wanting to upgrade from a shallow (stock) pan to a aftermarket deep pan you really don't need to know what you have. Dropping the pan to change fluid only rids part of the fluid. To properly re-fill the trans you must check the fill level after you run the trans through the gears and while the motor is running.
(No exact way to tell how much fluid it will take to re-fill.)

OK does your pan have a drain plug? If so, you have an aftermarket deep pan.

Stock pans don't have drain plugs.

Post a pic of the pan.

actuly every parts place i go to asks questions like that if you have a 4l60e or 80e..... basicly if its a car its a shalow if its a truck its a deep...at leaste thats where i see these types of pans....the difference is the filter and a couple of quarts of fluid
