How do you disconnect transmission cooler lines with quick connect on 05 Chevrolet Cobalt?
1 person found this useful
there is a tool yo do it or you can use a very small screwdriver to pull the retaining wire out. be carefull not to bend it so much that it permanitly distorts. then the line …just pulls out. all the wire does is hold the line in place there is a bulge in the line that it catches on then an o-ring that makes the seal. one last note if you have to replace the transmission fluid use atf+4 or you will destroy it.
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….
Answer . Buy Quick Diconect tools At a parts store.They come on a strip in various sizes.
Usually, the line feeding the recepticle has a collar that simply slips back away from the recepticle (You may have to push the line forward and then pull back on the collar.)… Then it should release.
How do you disconnect a quick connect gas line? It depends on the type that is used. There appear to be at least 5 different kinds but the one used on Saabs needs a GM disco…nnect tool that you can purchase from Harbor Freight or Autozone for under $10 bucks. The Saab quick connect has a rubber stopper / bushing that fits into the end of the metal quick connector. The bushing's purpose is to keep debris and dirt from getting into the connector. To Disconnect a Saab fuel line from the Fuel Rail: Grab one of the 3 rubber tabs that stick out perpendicularly on the side of the bushing and pull it toward the fuel rail. (You need to get the bushing up over the flair that keeps it in place.) All you want to do is get enough space between the bushing and connector so you can insert a small box wrench between them and use the wrench to pry the bushing up over the fuel line flaring. Once you have the bushing up out of the way, insert the disconnect tool into the end of the quick connector and push the quick connector up toward the tool. (The tool looks kind of like a pair of scissors that when closed form a 3/8" tube on one end and a 5/16" tube on the other end...). There are 4 metal tabs inside the quick connector that bend inwards toward a flaring that prevent the connector from coming off. By pushing the connector onto the tool, it pushes the 4 tabs back out of the way so they won't get caught on the flaring when you attempt to pull the connector off the line. With the connector pushed up onto the tube of the disconnect tube, you will then push both the connector and the tool away from the fuel rail. You might need to wiggle it back and forth but if you have the connector pushed up onto the tool far enough, it will provide enough clearance for the tabs to clear the flaring and the fuel line will disconnect from the fuel rail hard line.
You need to take it to a repair shop that has the equipment to properly repair it.
hold the washer at the end of the coupling (use a tool if necessary) - push it inwards (opposite to the direction you want the water line you want to come out towards) and pul…l out the water line. That's it..
Does the lower transmission cooler line on a 2000 Impala with 3.8 liter engine and radiator with quick connects require a seal or Oring be installed on the tube before sliding into the quick connect?
If it is similar to the 2003 Bonneville with the 3.8L engine, then the answer is no. There is an O-ring inside of the quick disconnect, about 1/8" beyond the flare face that t…he tube pushes up against. You'll notice that there is about 3/8" of tubing between the flare and the end of the tube. The O-ring inside the quick disconnect fitting seals the tube at about the mid point between the flare and the end of the tube. I'm not an expert, but I'm guessing that the design of the fitting allows the ATF pressure to push the O-ring to a tight seal against the tube. There is not much pressure on the flare, it is just held in place by the snap ring, so we can be pretty sure that the flare is not really providing any oil sealing.. Ed. Clarkston,MI
The answer is on the Price-Pfister website https://pricepfister.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/pricepfister.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=833 (Answer ID #833). The plastic collar …needs to be pushed down against the Diverter Tee (Quick Connect) as you firmly pull out the hose, pipe, etc. Update: On Price Pfister Website, see Video on "how to remove a sprayer hose connection for the Price Pfister" http://www.pricepfister.com/about/sprayer.aspx
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.
Easy use a quick disconnect tool or a small screwdriver
In Chevy Cobalt
checking the transmission fluid involves lifting the vehicle andremoving a plug on the transmission, it is quite difficult andmessy if you don't have access to a lift, the veh…icle has to belevel and at operating temperature in park, there is a small plugon the side of the transmission near the passenger axle shaft.remove the plug slowly, i believe it is an 11mm bolt, if fluiddrips out, the level is ok, if no fluid comes out, there is a smallplastic screw on cap on top of the transmission itself on thedriverside near the oil filter cap, add fluid slowly untill fluidstarts to drip out of the plug hole, once the fluid starts to drip,insert the plug and tighten, don't overtighten, just snug itup.!!!make sure you use the right fluid, this is important!!! ibelieve your fluid is dextron 6, double check in your ownersmanual, the use of any other fluid will cause damage!!! also, donot remove the small plug on the front of the transmission, that isthe pressure plug, all the fluid will shoot out with force if thatplug is removed.
In Chevy Cobalt
There actually isn't one. It's a sealed system. There is a cap tofill the transmission directly on top of the transmission. If youneed to check the level, lift the car in the …air and there is a11mm plug on the bottom of the transmission. With the car running(Warning: The car must remain running while plug is out!) take theplug out, the fluid should trickle out of the hole. If no fluidcomes out add fluid. Don't shut the car off while it is running orelse fluid will pour out.
This took me a while to figure out, There are 2 different styles at least. The ford style is similar to AC lines etc and there is a tool for this. FIRST clean the line b the f…itting. Then you insert the tool which is a 1.5 inch or so round knob with a small notched piece sticking out of the end. You insert this and turn it a quarter turn or so and the line should wiggle on out. Clean and reinsert when ready to reassemble. GM has a dorman style fitting which has a metal clip which can be CAREFULLY removed with a very small screwdriver to get the line out as above. On my 02 Rendezvous there is a small plastic doughnut sleeve thing that covers the end of the fitting that I BELIEVE is supposed to keep dirt out. I have searched the web for the past 2 hours and have found no information on this so I'm just giving this my best shot. I looked up a picture of the replacement fitting and this white "doughnut sleeve" is not pictured so my best guess is that it is not an actual part of the fitting. Is sneaky GM trying to keep folks from trying to work on these fittings? Hmmmmmmm;)
There is a plastic fitting or tool that goes around the line and you push into the fitting to release it. Push it in and pull out the line. You can buy a set of 5 for around $…8 to $10 U.S.
Any work under the hood of a car could be a technical process. See related links for instructions. ANS 2 You should take this opportunity to totally change the transmis…sion fluid. To do this properly, first raise the front of the car about 1 foot, brace it up on blocks (I won't insult you by explaining simple stuff like that ) then disconnect the lower trans coolant line from the rad. Put a 5 gallon bucket under this line. now start and idle the engine in 'Park' . Fluid will slowly pump out into the bucket as the system empties. Takes 10-15 minutes. When no more fluid comes out, shut off engine and drop trans pan, remove and change filter and gasket, replace pan and bolt up carefully using opposing bolt method. Now disconnect both coolant lines from transmission and fit the new ones. When all is together, lower the car and pour in new fluid, EXACTLY the same amount as came out into the bucket. Have 2 litres spare fluid handy. Now switch on and idle the engine again, when engine/trans is warm measure fluid on the dipstick. Now add to recommended level on dipstick. This method replaces the fluid from the convertor, that never normally gets changed when you just do the trans pan. Now you've done a simple job that would have cost you 3-400 at the garage !
