i got the top one secured in there but the bottom one for the life of me wont snap into place. it seems impossible to get in there?
Or do an LS swap.Sharp ridges on the collar on the trans line will give you fits trying to get them to snap in place, as you have figured out.
So, what's worse - dealing with these or cross-threading a fitting that you can't get to line up just right?
Either way often deals out just about as much frustration as a man can stand. If he doesn't have his fill yet, he should consider getting married, that'll do it!
okay im not driving it until i add ATF mercon 3. so basically what happened was top one was snapped on securely and i thought bottom one was too but as soon as start and got out of car to observe fluid started leaking and turned car off popped hood and seen bottom one loose. so that was when i had to do all that with the pick to get the clip around the line then wrench it in to the radiator. quite the job i hate that clip design i get that is probably really secure but i wish they had an easier way.
hey i finally got it but had hard time with it basically i put the line in the fitting, then took a pick and was able to attach one end of clip and then pull with the pick the rest around it to where it secured and the line was stuck in there. then i wrenched the fitting with the line attached onto the radiator. thank god all that is done with but i learned a lot and i believe fixed a transmission leak.Don't over tighten the fitting into the radiator, could crack the radiator will cause a mixing of coolant with trans fluid and then by by trans.
