    automatic transmission cooling lines

    i got my new radiator and started to take off all the lines.. when i got to the 2 metal lines the top one came off fine but the bottom 1 broke off.. so i was wondering how to take it off the transmission... do you have to drop it or can you just jack the car up and take it out...

    I would remove the line. Just put a hose barb on the radiator and use a fuel line hose to go from the hose barb to the trans line. Slap on some hose clamps, and you have a permanant fix. This is exactly what you would get in an external trans cooler kit, so it will work fine for you.
