    How to remove transmission line to radiator

    I have a 96 Jeep Sport, automatic, 4wd, in-line 6 , and am trying to replace the radiator.

    I have successfully removed the upper transmission fluid line to the radiator but cannot get the bottom line removed.

    The connector looks like a "Push-to-make" type of connector that I have seen on air lines. This is probably not the correct analogy but is the best I can come up with.

    My question is what tool do I need to remove the bottom transmission line?

    If you could take a pic. of the connector it would be great. i dont remember which one of the quick disconnects was used on those. I thought for sure that it had a nipple on the radiator side and a clamped hose on the line.

    See the attached picture of the connection. The from of the vehicle is to the bottom of the picture.

    It looks like a high pressure connector.

    Go to a napa or a local parts store and ask for a quick disconnect tool. If i remember correctly, its a 3/8.
