Is my oil pan a deep or shallow oil Pan on my 2006 Silverado HD 4x4 Duramax.
If it's the original pan it's shallow...
It is shallow. Let me know if you need a filter or fluid for you project.
You can look up all your filter and fluid needs here: Online look up guide
I'd recommend keeing the stock pan. I have heard that the deep pans actually make it harder for the oil to be pumped. At least do a good search before you swap it if thats what you're thinking.
Deep pans are good for the Allison. There are no problems with the fluid being pumped that I have ever heard. I am on a Duramax forum also and there are tons of people with the deep pan and swear by them. I am going to get one for my truck before it's plowing season again.
Thanks guys mine is a shallow pan. Just needed to know because of the choice of the internal filter,which i change last wekend.
