1. Replacing the timing chain in a 06 LJ

    I知 in the process of replacing the timing chain in a 2006 LJ with a 4.0.
    At this point I知 having trouble getting the automatic transmission cooling lines removed from the radiator.
    I致e tried the quick disconnect tools made for fuel lines but can稚 seem to get them off.
    Is there a special tool or a trick to this?
    Thanks so much,
    Jake

    I'm not sure if you got this squared away or not, but for those that come later, here's a link:

    Curious as to why you are changing the timing chain? And if you are awre of the ODPA issue with 05-06 TJs that result in worn cam gears and timing issues?

    No I was not aware of the ODPA issue or what it means.
    I was in the process of replacing a rusty oil pan and noticed a lot of play in the timing chain.

    Ok I thought of you were chasing a timing issue you might not have heard of the issue with 05-06 tj. Here is some info for reference if you or others need:
