Saturday, I dropped my transmission pan on my truck. One of the shift was definitely bad since I could see the coil inside of it. The other shift solenoid was also bad, tcc solenoid might be bad, range selector is bad, and the trans. temp. sensor is bad, which I had to buy a new internal wiring harness since you can't buy the sensor by itself.

Also added a drain plug to the transmission pan.

I installed a mirror from a Saturn Vue. It took a little work as it has the 16 pin connector. I couldn't get the pins out of the connector, so I made an adapter. I think I'm going to have to get the sensor from the Vue because the temperature don't work right. I guess each sensor is calibrated to the mirror from the vehicle it came from, but I'm probably wrong..

Where are you buying the transmission pans with drain plugs? I have seen aftermarket differential covers with drain plugs, but not transmission pans.

I drilled and tapped the regular transmission pan for the 4L80E. Then used a 3/8" Grade 8 fine thread with a lock washer, 3 washers, and a rubber washer.

I almost drilled a hole then welded a nut on to the pan.

I'm not sure which vehicle you're looking for, but I think for almost any RWD GM transmission they probably make one.
