special tool for disconnecting trans fluid lines from radiator?
Replacing the radiator in dad's 2000 taurus se (3.0L vulcan). It started spewing coolant from the reservoir...we have changed the reservoir, heater core and t stat before due to the "red death" issue with the vulcans...so I think the rad may be the culprit since the water pump seems to be fine.
Reading the hayes manual it says there is a special tool for the trans cooler lines at the radiator....is there such a special tool? Looks like a regular box-end wrench will do. IF someone can confirm the size it would be greatly appreciated...just ballparking by eye looks to be a 20mm
