^^^^ Agree 100%. Quick connect on the assembly line, Major PITA disconnect 15 years after the car was built.

Well I just left it alone and removed the pulley from the tensioner assembly. I was able to access all necessary bolts for the tc. I had to drop it out of the bottom though. Once I removed the wp from the tc the inside fins fell out. So my wp failed which I think made the tc gasket fail quicker. I'm also just gonna do the oil pan gasket as well since I'm down there. A thing else I should be concerned with? My car over heated very quickly which is why I'm doing all this in the first place. I'm almost certain it isnt a head gasket. I'll see more of what the oil looks like once I drain and remove the pan.
