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.

SOURCE: my transmission line that connects to the radiator

The easiest fix is to get a transmission fluid cooler & use it to replace the fan connection completely. Basically you'll just shorten your lines a bit to clamp a hose over them & connect both lines to the 2 lines on the cooler. the cooler installs onto the front of the radiator with push through connectors that makes it easy to install & it will provide you even better trans. cooling in the warm months.

I have seen people use just a hose to connect the 2 lines & not have any problem in the cooler months but you really do need the trans fluid cooled during the warmer months to prevent trans damage.

check you fluid & top it off properly after making the repair!

Good Luck

SOURCE: removing the transmission cooling line fron

These lines just run straight through the radiator to provide cooling. You can bypass the radiator by adding a transmission fluid cooler, during the cold weather in a pinch, a replacement transmission hose with 2 clamps can be connected between the 2 transmission lines to correct leakage, but in warm weather, the fluid suffers if it doesn't get the benefit of a cooler.

Aftermarket coolers are relatively inexpensive, especially compared to the long term benefit of keeping the fluid degrees cooler, prolonging the life of the trans.

good luck

Oil in the radiator


oil in the radiator is from a failed transmission oil cooler that is in the radiator tank. You will also have water in the transmission oil as when you shut off the engine the coolant pressure may enter the oil lines through the crack in the cooler.

How do i drain the radiator on 1997 rodeo i don't see the drain plug


If this is a 1997 Isuzu Rodeo with a 3.2L engine, this is where the drain plug is. You will have 2 transmission coolant lines attached to the bottom of your radiator. The drain plug is approximately 2-3 inches from the coolant line that is closest to the drivers side of the car. Real hard to see. It may be partially covered by the rubber padding that the radiator sits on, but it is right there by the transmission coolant line that is closest to the drivers side.

New tranny in my 92 ssei now it has tranny fluid in the rad ???????


The transmission and engine are there own entities. Unfortuantly the radiator in some vehicles cool the tranny fluid. Its possable when the coolant lines were disconnected from the transmission or from the radiator, the seal was broken on the radiator where the line goes in from the radiator, so you wont see it because its internal. This will allow trans fluid to enter into the radiator. Be careful with trans fluid mixed with the coolant may cause engine damage. Your solution to the problem if this is infact the source would mean replacing the radiator, if you do this be sure to flush the coolant system to rid trans fluid.

I have a 2004 Cherokee and there is coolant in the transmission. Any idea how it got there?


No coolant is suppose to be in transmission. How it got there is easy, you radiator has transmission lines running through the bottom of it. Your radiator has an internal leak into those trans lines. You'll probably find oily substance in coolant also.

I pulled my radiator out to change my water pump and flushed it at the same time. I had to take the coolant hoses off and two smaller hoses for tranny fluid. Do I have to bleed the tranny fluid lines or...


nope just reconnect it all up, the tranny lines are only an transmission oil cooler, it is not under pressure like the brake lines. system will be fine. when you put the hoses back on and fill the system up leave the cap off while running the car making sure the coolant is at the top of the radiator, this will flow through the entire system and force any air pockets out of it once all bubbling has stopped and fluid is still at the top put cap back on and your set. air pockets can cause the car to heat up.

Dissassemble of Radiator


Instructions
Things You'll Need:
  • Resealable container
  • Wrench
  • Replacement hoses, if necessary
  • Replacement radiator
  • Engine coolant
  • Distilled water
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable before you begin the process of replacing the radiator. Then, remove the plug on the underside of the radiator and let the engine coolant drain into a resealable container.
  2. Remove the upper radiator hose and lower radiator hose. Inspect the hoses, and if they need to be replace, this is the perfect time to do it. Unfasten all of the bolts with a wrench, securing the grill reinforcement panel, and take off the panel.
  3. Unhook the transmission cooler lines, along with any electrical connections. Take off the radiator mounting support bolts, and remove the radiator support. Remove the bolts holding the radiator in place, and lift out the radiator.
  4. Slide the new radiator into place, and tighten the bolts according to specifications. Reattach the radiator support and the radiator mounting support bolts.
  5. Reconnect the electrical connections and the transmission cooler lines, and replace the grille reinforcement panel. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
  6. Fill the radiator with a mixture of half engine coolant and half distilled water, pouring slowly to avoid excess air.
  7. Start the engine and let it run for several minutes with the cap on very loosely to bleed air from the system, then top off the engine coolant mixture, if necessary. Replace the radiator cap securely.

  • Don't waste good engine coolant. If the coolant is clean, it can safely be reused. If you're unable to reuse it, take it to a garage or a hazardous waste facility for proper disposal.
  • Be sure the engine of your Jeep Grand Cherokee is completely cool before replacing the radiator because the hot liquid and steam can cause serious burns. Put a thick towel over the radiator cap and open the cap very slowly to allow any steam to escape. It's also a good idea to wear gloves and protective clothing.
  • Remember that cats and dogs are attracted to antifreeze, which can be fatal if ingested. Clean up any spills as soon as they happen.
Also, can review the service repair manual for 1995 Jeep XJ Cherokee (Section 7 Cooling System)

I hope help you with this (remember rated this help). Good luck.
