    New 2005 Magnum RT Owner

    Used to be a Challenger owner, but couldn't resist this beauty @ only 38K miles. My first two orders of business: Crank Position Sensor needs replacing, can probably do that myself. However, I want to install a K&N Deep Oil Pan and replace fluid of course. I'm thinking dealer for AT service, any thoughts?

    Why do you think you need a deep oil pan?

    The original owner gave it to me along with the appropriate corresponding gasket and filter. He claimed it would lower the fluid temperatures within. Since I need to have the fluid changed anyway I might as well have the new pan and filter installed while I'm at it. Couldn't hurt, right?

    By the way, yours looks great! I'll take some pics under the hood of mine soon.

    Welcome to the forum!

    We have a 2005 RT Magnum, too

    IIRC, the crank position sensor is behind the starter. Kind of a pita. Had to do this on ours, a few years ago.

    There's really no reason to go with a larger oil sump, if your driving street. We tow a camp trailer, to the Eastern Sierras, with no problems. Bone stock.

    If you do your own maintenance, download your maintenance manual:

    Enjoy!

    Yes that is the one, also came with the Wix 58845 filter and gasket. Thanks for catching the typo! The original owner never got around to installing it.

    Thanks for the greetings everyone.

    IMHO, you cannot have too much tranny fluid. I have a pan like this on my 01 2500 4x4 Cummins with the notorious 48 tranny. 18 years, 100K mi. hauling horses at 7000' and up. Tranny is still intact.
