Transmission Line Tool

Hi Guys I need to replace the transmission line from tran to cooler and I found out I need a miller 8875a which is $85.00. Is there any other tool that will work?

Found it for 60 bucks at:

That at least saves some money!

I think you need the 9546 not the 8875 if you have a JK...
I found one at toolsource for $51.28 http://www.toolsource.com/disconnect...-p-114435.html

Transmission Line Tool

I got the miller tool and used it but it was nightmare to separate the lines. I did use also the pick method and it works better. Once you remove the clip then you can pull and twist on the lines to get them apart. With the tool it is hard to use it and remove the lines. I would say they are a quick connect and a real animal to disconnect. For information if you lose a clip they cannot be purchased separately you have to buy the fittings which are ten dollars each.

Found a cheap alternative tool

I just replaced the transmission cooler lines on my 2009 JK and used an Autocraft tool #AC3400 from Advance Auto Parts. It is normally for a Ford fuel line disconnect but works great on the Jiffy Tite fittings. Cost - $5.

The dealer price of the two lines together used to be $35. Now I believe it's well over $100.

They are about $85 from some of the vendors.

Yeah, what really got my goat was the original labor was $75 last year, now it is $130...how do you explain that? That is why I was wondering how hard it is for a shade tree mechanic like myself to fit that tool in there and get the lines out without screwing things up horribly

Last year I installed a Mopar accessory trans cooler on one of our club members '10 JKUR. I have a quick disconnect set but no matter how I fussed with it it wouldn't release the clips. I finally just popped off the plastic caps ih a small screwdriver, then carefully removed the little metal retaining clips with a stiff pick tool and some needlenose pliers. Going back together everything just snapped & clicked into place.

(Not to change the topic, but the Mopar trans cooler for pre-2012 JK automatics is an outstanding piece. Highly recommend.)

It sounds like you were trying to use the tool before you slid back the plastic retainers?

No, we had them pushed back, my tools just wouldn't get the wire retainers spread enough to release. Was pretty easy just to use a pick tool and pliers.
