That seems to me to be the real problem. Of course, I have a 2wd with Rack and Pinion, that might have made it harder. Please let us know what we can do to achieve this goal. Make sure the new lines are clipped in tight and that the plastic disc if used is pushed all the way on to keep them in place. It looks like the exhaust is in the way, along with a metal shield on the side of the trans.
Thanks a bunch, sure looking forward to that one. Transmission model 4L60-E or 4L65-E. What's worked for all of you? It's not the nice metal one I saw somewhere on this site. That's a real slow leak, but still, pisses me off. Dealer said not part of the Drive train warranty. I did pull the fittings on the trans to check the o rings.
U can use a pick tool on those clips quite well I dont know if you vehicle is 4x4 but if it's the case I usually take the front diff just about out. A new line is desirable because a used part may contain contaminants. The line will simply pull once this is done. I dropped tranny as low as she would go then pried it over and was able to get my hand up in there to feel with the jiffy tool and popm them out. That job actually looks worst than it is. I have a tool that releases the clips.
How much access did it give ya lowering tranny? You can even shop with AutoZone online and benefit from home shipping. Unfortunately, you may have to have the transmission rebuilt. I couldn't believe they'd say that. It was cramped but doable. Put a transmission line pressure gauge or visit a local trans shop, on the pressure test port and go for a drive to verify proper line pressure.
I just took a beefy hose clamp and put it on the metal part that goes over the rubber hose, it slowed it down alot but it does still weep. It was actually leaking where it goes into the external cooler. On a Chevrolet truck or car running a V6 or V8 engine, a set of transmission cooler lines typically runs from the front of the vehicle by the radiator into the transmission. Please call for customer service and availability at 1-800-858-7269. What have you experienced with those? I removed the metal cover on the side of the trans pan, and can get my hands up there barely. There is a special tool for them but I have never seen one that works worth a crap.
Chevrolet Silverado automatic transmission parts from AutoZone bring back that smooth power transfer you need when you are digging in and working hard. I actually gave it some thought of cutting them near tranny somewhere and flare the ends and do same with my new ones flare ends and hose them. Since 1918, Dorman Products has supplied the automotive aftermarket with high-quality replacement parts, hardware and fasteners. You can tell that you need Silverado automatic transmission repair when the gears slip instead of shifting smoothly, and it's best to plan for a repair then. Posted on Nov 13, 2009 Not everyone may agree with my answer but I have a 1999 Ford product and tried a Salvage yard for a similar part. Or am I over thinking this.
Two main lines weren't bad getting back in. Just had my engine oil cooler lines replaced right before Xmas on my 2010. I broke the external cooler because I thought they were the standard flare fittings like they used to use. I actually gave it some thought of cutting them near tranny somewhere and flare the ends and do same with my new ones flare ends and hose them. I don't know if I should take them out and try and clean them up, or if that is inviting trouble.
I had my tranny lines repaired in the engine bay last Summer. Left the radiator ones alone. I wasn't sure if you can use different fittings on the radiator so I could use double flair fittings. Mother nature hasn't been nice. Do you guys recommend replacing the o-rings? If reverse is slow to engage, and line pressure does not come up to at least 130psi in reverse, replace the boost valve with a Transgo 0. About 6 years ago I replaced the entire transmission and I got them off when the trans was lowered a bit. It takes time for vibrations, corrosion and things like that to damage them.
That's how I got the others off. The best way is to lower the trans by removing the rear mount and support. Do you just press it inward to release the clip and then pull the line out? May 12, 2014 1870 is a transmission error code which indicates excessive wear in the valve body and is usually accompanied by unusual shifting. A leak involving transmission fluid and they just wanted to let it go??? I broke the external cooler because I thought they were the standard flare fittings like they used to use. I picked one out of the other fittings, and it seemed ok, but i'm worried i might be nicking them when I get them out to check them. We'll make sure you're ordering the correct part and we can take your order for you too.
They don't look too rusty on the trans, but the ones on the radiator are. They talk about all this safety crap. So I ended up getting all new lines from the dealer. Transmission cooler lines typically last for years. Then you wouldn't need 14 airbags in your vehicle for a crash! After looking at how this line is ran I'm half wondering if I shouldn't just cut the line and run rubber hose the whole way. On the passenger side of the radiator you can see where two metal lines connect to the radiator. Thought I would let everyone know I was successful.
