o-rings for quick disconnect?
I replaced the radiator a couple of days ago as well as the steel trans coolant lines that plug into it. I also used new plastic clips for those so-called quick disconnects.
Yesterday one of the fittings came loose and I found a green o-ring protruding from the female end of the connector. Now I've looked in the FSM, and had Napa took a look on their system and it doesn't seem to be required. OTH, without it the connection went together far more easily, and it's leaking a small amount.
So, does anyone know if this o-ring belongs there? I can't find any mention here in the forums, although I read that I could have just replaced the ends with hose and clamps. Wish I had known that sooner!
