The transmission pan that is used in your transmission is like an old pan that sits at the bottom of the transmission which holds the most part of the transmission fluid. This device is useful since it is where the transmission oil pick up is placed, and from where the transmission goes. Underneath, you may also find here a filter and other useful components. This transmission pan is also considered as an access port for any repair works to be done. One of the most trusted names when it comes to transmission pans is B&M.
