Transmission cooler line replacement
Hello all, I was sent here by WilliamE because the other forum I posted on could not answer my questions. I am really hoping for some help with transmission cooler line replacement. My 98 Grand Prix GTP is leaking transmission fluid from the lower line (or fitting/o-ring) on the radiator. The fitting on the radiator is pretty badly rusted, as is the line. I have read that the O-ring in the fitting has a tendency to leak so I was planning on replacing the fitting, o-ring, and the line. Also, the fittings are pretty cheap so I figure I may as well do it while I am in there. The problem is, the hayne'* manual doesn't cover how to perform the repair, and I can't see the clip that holds the line to the fitting due to the rust. I do have the gm disconnect tool (little 3/4 circle device that has a fin on each end to squeeze together), which is the only oddball tool I have seen any reference to. Any advice you folks can give as to which fittings I need and tips on how to take care of the problem would be awesome =) Pictures or diagrams would be great too. Thanks in advance!
