Question about 2000 Buick Century
Ok on this cooling line from radiator to transmission I need to remove it because I hit something on the road and now is leaking but the line has a plastic cover seems it is just a dust protector so the cooling line needs to get disconnected from the radiator and the transmission as well is there a special tool to remove it because it does not have treads so I can use a regular wrench seems that the line is just inserted on the transmission. thanks miguel.
You do need special tools. You can purchase them at AutoZone or similar. Not? that expensive use caution when disconnect lines very easy to repair.

Make sure that you use thee correct tools when removing the hose. Important to keep in mind that these lines seize up so you may need to heat the fittings.
When installing new line, good idea to use a little anti-seize and then top off transmission fluid with vehicle running and it has reached operating temperature.

nothing "special", but there may be torxs bit bolts on the caliper. I've had mine a really long time so to me they arent special anymore.Other than that it's all wrench and socket stuff.

Go down to your nearest auto parts store, they should have what you need. Might be as simple as cutting the line and using a rubber sleeve around it with a couple hose clamps.

they are a type of quick connect fitting. There is a special tool just for these types of fittings. If you remove the plastic cover that goes over the fitting you will see a metal clip in a groove. You can use a small pick to carefully remove the clip (they go flyin and get lost easily but they are available from your local GM dealer or parts store). Once the clip is removed you will be able to pull the line out of the radiator/transmission fitting.
Reinstall the clip after you remove the line. The new line will slide in and click into place.
