How do you disconnect transmission cooler lines 05 chev cobalt?
checking the transmission fluid involves lifting the vehicle and removing a plug on the transmission, it is quite difficult and messy if you don't have access to a lift, the vehicle has to be level and at operating temperature in park, there is a small plug on the side of the transmission near the passenger axle shaft. remove the plug slowly, i believe it is an 11mm bolt, if fluid drips out, the level is ok, if no fluid comes out, there is a small plastic screw on cap on top of the transmission itself on the driverside near the oil filter cap, add fluid slowly untill fluid starts to drip out of the plug hole, once the fluid starts to drip, insert the plug and tighten, don't overtighten, just snug it up.!!!make sure you use the right fluid, this is important!!! i believe your fluid is dextron 6, double check in your owners manual, the use of any other fluid will cause damage!!! also, do not remove the small plug on the front of the transmission, that is the pressure plug, all the fluid will shoot out with force if that plug is removed.

How do you disconnect the transmission fluid cooler lines from the transmission on a 1992 Jeep Cherokee?
Answer Those transmissions have whats called a "QuickConnect" fitting. There are little plastic tabs on the fittingsthat must be pushed in so that the line can be pulled out….

Remove the old oil filter. Drain the oil and remove air cleanerhousing. Place the car on Ãa jack. Loosen the engine mounts. Raisethe engine and loose the bolts on the motor… mounts. Remove theengine shock and the two brackets securingÃthe oil lines. Removethe oil cooler lines.
The line probably goes from the transmission to the radiator. The engine isn't involved in the process of cooling the transmission fluid. Replacement would be as simple as rem…oving the old one and installing a new one.
You can disconnect the 1996 Jeep transmission lines with a 9/16open end wrench. Be prepared for transmission fluid to come out ofthe transmission lines.
they make a tool for it but where the line goes in trans there is a white band plastic push in band with screw driver all the way around line and pull it should come off
There is a special tool that releases the wire clips that hold them on.
The transmission cooler lines are located coming from the radiator on the bottom. One is for the sending and the other for return. The lines are high pressure, just as your ra…diator hoses are when the car is running. The lines go from the radiator to the top of the transmission.
Easy use a quick disconnect tool or a small screwdriver
If you look down the side of the radiator facing the engine, you will see 2 metal lines screwed into the radiator. You may need to use a crows foot or flared end wrench to in…itally break them loose (they are a metric size). Prepare to catch and properly dispose of any fluid that comes out. Use an open end wrench to remove them from radiator. Follow the lines to where they attach to trasmission, remove any fasteners that may be holding lines in place. Remove from transmission, if you must raise vehicle, ensure it is PROPERLY SUPPORTED before going under. Install new lines, use open end wrench and just make them snug, do not overtighten, it's not necessary to use a crows foot or flared end wrench to install. Re-attach any clips or brackets that secure lines. Ensure transmission fluid is at proper level and you are done!
Transmissions do operate with a lot of pressure. Most of the time using rubber hose and clamps to repair it will only be a temporary solution. Use some fuel injection fuel lin…e hose and double clamp each end with some good quality clamps. The cheap ones will not work well.

I would buy a set of flare nut wrenches. They have an open side to fit over the line so that you can get on the flare nut going into the transmission and radiator. Get a pan t…o catch the tranny fluid that is going to run out when you break the lines. There are 2 lines going into the tranny and 2 lines going into the radiator. Before you take the lines loose identify their position on the radiator and tranny with masking tape.
You didn,t say what year so that makes it hard to answer. I hope this helps, In the late 80s Chevy quit using transmissions that had a modulator valve too shift there transmis…sions and went to a computer controlled transmission that had no vaccume lines for the transmissions.

Gently pry back the plastic cover to expose the "C" clip that retains the line into the radiator fitting. Using a small pick, remove the "C" clip, now you can gently wiggle th…e cooling line out of the radiator fitting. Replace the "C" clip into the fitting before you reinsert the cooling line back in place, then snap plastic cover back in place.
