I need to replace radiator for STS 2001. It requires to open the transmission oil cooling line at radiator. A repair manual says to use Cooling Line Quick Connect tool. I went to a Pepboys. They were not aware of this
quick release tool. I understand that there is a pin that needs to be pulled out and then just pull out the transmission cooling oil pipe. Is this tool like a screw driver with some pin to remove the Pin. Can a screw driver be used for removing this pipe. I will appreciate your ideas.

Thanks
John

There are no special tools required. One line is removable with a wrench, the other only requires a small flat head or pick to remove a small wire c shaped retainer from around the quick disconnect fitting. If you stare at it for a second it should be self explainatory. I didn't take pictures when I did mine but it's not difficult once you figure it out.
