The best way to remove the tranny cooler disconnect clips is with the tool available at an auto parts store for disconnects. The tool is cheap, or even loan-able. Doesn't use a wrench....don't use a wrench.
No you absolutely don't need to *burp* an open
cooling system. It's open to the air with a pressure valve (the cap) to the overflow tank and burps itself during normal operation in four or five drive cycles. Do
keep an eye on the overflow tank and top off as necessary for the first day or two of driving.
Spec for coolant is 12 qts. of 50/50 coolant and distilled water mix, including the overflow at mid line. I usually end with a quart of coolant left over.
