You didn't say what kind of trans. Go to www.TCIauto.com then scroll down to "technical" and hit "cooler fittings" all kinds of info.

The line coming out of the transmission that is closest to the pump will be the pressure line. On most current transmissions, that will be the front line.

Great Advise!!!

I want to thank you. I used the link you provided, and found the answer to a question I have been pondering for 2 days! I have a TH350, but this site helps with almost any transmission you may have!

Check my 'about me' thread I started, I am new to this type of web activity (this is my first posting.)

looking it up is no fun at all!!!
ya gotta do it the macho "male" way!!
(we never read no stinkin' instructions!)

disconnect just one line at the rad....
have your wife crank the motor with the ign killed....
if the open tube makes a big mess on the floor that's the pump side....
if the rad makes a big mess that's the pump flow side.....

now spend 30 minutes plus "trying" to clean up the PITA slick as hell ATF off the floor and all your tools....

cause',,,, you weren't smart enough to use 2 clean jars and some hose pieces to catch the fluid so you could dump it back into the tranny (tranny pump is low psi and gpm)....

I don't have any fluid in the system yet, rebuilt trans., new radiator, and lines. I could fill it up and try it that way, but the info is gonna save a whole lotta mess.

Have a good day, and keep of that slippery garage floor- trans. fluid can stay slick for a long time. On second thought, maybe you could use it to get the hole-shot started with the family minivan???
