    Remove the line from teh radiator or simply loosen it with the engine running, then shut it down, tighten it, and clean up the mess.

    just loosen one of the tranny cooler lines while the truck is running and let the fluid drip out until the level is correct.

    I've heard of guys disconnecting one of the tranny cooler lines at the radiator and putting it in a bucket(an extension hose is needed)and then firing up the rig and this pumps fluid out to flush the tranny. Maybe someone with more knowledge of this will chime in!!Good Luck!! /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    Yeah it;s the lower line on the radiator. I just did a flush like this. About 20 seconds and 2-3 quarts comes out.
