Re: 2005 envoy SLT 6 cylinder

Why do you want to take the trans lines out of the cooler? They are not hard to take out, the problem is getting them back in.

They have a little plastic piece that wraps around the line, I'm guessing to help prevent corrosion in this area. Slide that back, then they have a three sided spring clip in a groove, use a pick or small flat head to pop it out. And done.

Now to put it back in, the O-ring should be changed. I have pulled it out and not replaced the o-ring and regretted it due to leaks after breaking the seal. Then you have to put the line back in and reinstall the clip and hope you have it in the groove on the trans lines. I thought I had it in one time, turns out only two of the side sat right. Week later the wife called in a panic that smoke was coming from under the truck and it was shifting weird. Line popped half was out not allowing enough fluid to shift right and burning the fluid up on the exhaust.

Even with removing the quart of oil in the cooler, you still have 5-6 in the trans that will not come out without taking the trans apart. Others might disagree but I don't think its worth the extra headache.

A set of picks or small flat head is all you need. But I would suggest getting a set of O-rings for the lines you pull off.

Not sure if it will work on the (I'm assuming) 4L60E, but with my Duramax, (after I did a normal fluid change) I pulled the lines off the side of the trans. Ran the return line into a bucket and the feed line into a gallon of new fluid. Start the truck up and let it push most of the old fluid out of the trans, toque convertor and cooler.

As stated, you just need a 'pick' type of tool to remove/pull the retainer clip out of the fitting to release the fluid line.
You might want to pick up some new/spare O-rings also - they are #5 and you can find them at many auto parts or hardware stores.

Here is YouTube with the type of fittings you are dealing with, only on the rad. vs. the trans ...

It's not a hard job, but the 'messy' factor can get out of hand real fast - keep 'kitty-litter' handy
