shallow or deep pan transmission?

Went to get an auto transmission filter and gasket and was asked this. I have no idea how to tell what I have. Any ideas?

you can run the deep pan, you just need the deep filter, check out my 2wd to 4wd thread in the project forum.

Theres a deep sump pan for the A4LD that will fit. It really depends on if you can get a 4wd pan for cheap. however the flat bottom pan will be easier to do a trans swap later down the road.

http://www.partshp.com/Pans.htm scroll down abit

Adds 3 quarts uses 4wd filter.

thats the answer I needed! I got up way to late to make it to the junkyards AND get the filter/fluid changed. So I still have not done it. Should be the next few days or so.

thanks again 04!
