I have the 1998 Taurus SE with a 3.0L. My boyfriend is trying to replace my radiator and he has run into a snag. I've tried helping to no avail. Here's the scoop. He wants to know if anyone can tell us how to remove the transmission lines from the radiator. We have bought the so-called special tools to remove the lines, but it doesn't work. Does anybody have any ideas or know the best way to remove the lines without cutting the metal tubing, but would do so as a last resort. Would appreciate any help in this matter. Thanks in advance.
