It has been too long since I did this work, but here is a tip: Go to Auto Zone, or one of those parts houses, and they will probably have a tool for this, I can't say for sure, but I believe it will be something to release the connection so it will come apart.

Small lower hose line attached to radiotor. How do I remove it? It is not the Lower thick Coolant Hose, It seems like the transmission or something else...? Do I just Yank it or pull it out or is there...

there is a quick connect tool made to release the fitting so that the fitting can be removed from the line that comes out of the radiator. You should be able to find it and any good parts store. If my memory is correct its a 5/16" line and the 5/16" quick disconnect tool that is needed.

2001 Jeep Grand Char., trans slips when making left turn only , 144000 miles, filter and fluid was changed

theres not much you can do about a slipping trans. its probly more noticable when you turn left because your left rear wheel is your primary drive wheel, it takes more force to move your car from the inside corner than the outside. be gentle on it and it may last you a while

04 grand cherokee V8 all wheel drive ,trans oil in rad and trans slipping where vehicle will not move?

Transmission oil in the radiator: Suspect you may also have water in transmission.

Likely culprit is the transmission has a small line that runs transmission fluid thru the radiator to cool the transmission fluid. It is supposed to be a closed system. Sounds like your radiator failed. Would expect with this kind of failure, you should replace and not repair the radiator. Then you need to flush and replace fluid & filter in transmission.

Where are grill bolts on a 1997 jeep grand cherokee

You don't get there that way. remove the six or so bolts that attach the rail above the radiator to the front trim, and, remove the bolts that hold the same rail to the radiator and rail extensions from the front fenders (including latch loop) also remove the electric fan. once you get the top rail off remove the air box, lower hose and trans cooler lines. Radiator lifts straight up.

Gear problem

OK, slipping is an internal transmission problem. If the vehicle has not been on the road for a long time, I suggest that you at least change the trans fluid. Depending upon what year the vehicle was made, electronics play some part in trans operation (later years more so than earlier ones) but from what I understand from your post, it seems more likely that internal transmission clutches are not getting adequate apply pressure, and are therefore slipping. Using lower transfer case gears puts less load on the transmission therefore making it easier to get the vehicle moving, but the slipping is likely still there.If when you remove the trans pan you find a large amount of debris in there (either metal or clutch material), or any gummy residue this will verify that the problem is inside the unit. On some transmissions you can change pressure, but in most cases this does little or nothing to help the problem.

Automatic transmission - radiator line leak

The cooling system is pretty much self explanatory hoses go from and to the most obvious places...(you wouldn't try to stretch the lower hose all the way across to the upper hose connection). The trans cooler in the radiator can actually be connected either way. It is non-directional, being a simple coil inside the radiator tank. If you want to install an external trans cooler, that's a bit needs to go on the outflow side of the radiator so it can further cool what the radiator has already cooled down. An easy way to find out which side is the return line, simply take one fitting off the radiator, remove the coil wire so engine dosen't start and "bump" the engine over till trans fluid comes out. if out of radiator nipple you are on the correct side, out of hose, install on other side. Leaking lines can be partially replaced using brass compression fittings made for this. Only use them on straight clean runs, not on heavy rust or bends.

Transmission fluid leak

Transmissions can leak anywhere there is a seal, fitting or gasket. Most common leaks are at the trans pan gasket and fittings.. However, to find a leak the only way is to get under there and look. A mid sized leak will clean off road debris and leave a track. Keep in mind that all leaks run down and that while driving this can be blown towards the rear of the vehicle. If you find a suspicious area, clean it off with a rag & some solvent and run that area for seepage. Also check cooling lines to radiator. Fluid coming from inside bellhousing indicates a bad front seal (requires trans removal to repair) Fluid should be (for aw4 units) Mercon, or any quality synthetic that covers mercon application.

Usually, the trans connect to the radiator is a "quick connect" type of fitting. You should buy a quick connect tool at autozone or somewhere similar...They usually have these tools.
