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: 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

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 need to re[lace my radiator on my cobalt ss,


Whoa. The best thing for you to do is get a Haynes Manual from your local part store as to this will show you the steps (along with pictures), to remove and replace your radiator as well as coolant amount and other things to do when replacing it. A little secret for you: When you open up the petcock on the bottom of the old radiator, Leave the Radiator Cap on and your coolant recovery jug will empty out first. Then remove the radiator cap and remove the rest. This procedure will keep you from pulling your coolant recovery bottle off separately with old coolant in it.

Most new radiators require you run distilled water through your cooling system first to get their warranty, but if you go to the Prestone site, it will explain the cleaners as well as other useful pointers in adding the proper amount of coolant. Most people don't know that if you use a 50/50 mix of Dex-cool® anti-freeze (the orange kind, and mix it with distilled water (instead of tap water), you'll never get corrosion in your radiator again for tap water has minerals in it that slowly deteriorate your aluminum parts, whereas distilled water doesn't. (smile)

I Hope this has Helped,

"00 Buck"

PS. The Haynes Manual for your Vehicle is #38017. This will help in calling around to see if they have your manual. (smile)

Need to locate and replace coolant sensor


If you are refering to the coolant level sensor (causes low coolant light to turn on), it is located on the radiator near the battery on the passnger side. It is on the radiator tank, just below the radiator cap and the upper connection for the transmission line. Heres a picture of the sensor on my 2002 Impala when I removed the radiator (it's the square thing in the center of the picture):

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.
