    need some pointers. dropping out the transmission99 v6 3.8L

    I have gotten some difficult bolts out throughout this process in some hard to get to areas, but this one seems to take the cake i have no clue how to get the bolt for the transmission dipstick tube out so if anyone has any easy ways to do it that would be greatly appreciated.

    Also. the coolant lines on the top of the transmission are giving me a bit of an issue... any tips on getting those out. i pulled the plastic piece back im not sure if you are suppose to get a wrench up there as there is not much visibility so im having a hard time telling whats going on up there. And i cant seem to find anything in the manual about removing them.

    Anyways thanks in advance for the help.

    On the LS1, the dipstick tube is bolted to the engine block. Once unbolted things come apart easily. The clips on the cooler lines are kind of funky. I was going to post some pics from when I swapped out our transmission, however, Photobucket is being a bit bitchy this morning. As I recall, there is a metal clip that retains the line in the plastic fitting. There is a procedure for removing and installing them. Let me go find my installation thread and I will link you to that.
