How do I get the bottom transmission cooler lines to go back into the radiator?

There is a rod running in the bottom of the radiator that the two transmission lines plug into. The rod moves back too far for the lines to screw into.

SOURCE: how do I replace the transmission coolant lines

Take a small 90 degree pick. Inspect the fitting closely. Use the pick to "roll" the retaining clip off the fitting. The line will simply pull once this is done. U can install the clip first on reinstallation (inspect them closely) and then simply push the line into the fitting. It will "click" into place. Note u will have to orient the line perfectly to push in.

Is it posible for the transmission atf to leak inside the radiator. because i dettect water inside the transmission and oil in the radiatorssion smission

most cars have a transmission cooler that runs through the radiator. Most often the coolant goes from the cooling system to the transmission and then quickly ruins the transmission..
you should get this fixed asap, hopefully you can avoid a transmission failure. A quick remedy would be to un hook the transmission cooling lines from the radiator then cap the ends on the radiator and then mount a separate transmission cooler.
The big problem is that you will need to flush that transmission as soon as you can. Get the trans oil changed pronto!

Where are the transmission coolant lines

A500 & A518 Overdrive Automatics (and the 904, 727 and other variants) run the Transmission Cooler Lines out of the Left side of the Transmission, near the Shifter Linkage & Kickdown linkage.
The lines then run along the side of the transmission, along the side of the engine oil pan, to the bottom tank of the radiator (or external cooler, if the truck had an external cooler installed).

Antifreeze is spraying from right above the transmission pan...right where the two lines run from the radiator all the way to that area..

Hi, the leak is actually transmission fluid, and it sounds like the transmission cooler lines need replacement. You should not drive this, as transmission damage could occur. Good luck... Coop

Water in trans in a c6

Water in transmission is a bad radiator and it needs to be replaced or you can by pass the radiator and buy a transmission cooler instead of running the transmission fluid through the radiator. The transmission cooler is built in to the radiator on the passenger side, the high line is on the top and the return will be on the bottom. Good luck and hope this helps.

Brownish fluid leaking from the small mannifold on the passenger side of the car in front of the this transmission fluid?

Good chance it's the transmission fluid. The passenger side of the radiator is the transmission cooler side and the coolant is leaking from the transmission lines. There should be two lines, one on top which is the inlet and the bottom one which is the return line. Check to make sure there is no corrosion along the lines or that the line has not come loose at the radiator. Locate the leak and repair or replace the lines. Good luck and take care not to run low on transmission fluid, low fluid in the system will cause the transmission to burn out.
