    So guys, i picked up a 2001 Ram 1500 with the 5.9 the other day, and first thing i noticed is it has a brand new radiator, but only the external transmission cooler is hooked up. So i went to the dealer and bought the trans cooler hose, and the quick disconnect coupler...

    Hose P/n : 4883317ab
    connector P/n : 52028625AC

    i slipped the connector onto the hose, and now it won't come off.

    my question is, does this get crimped like the other side of the hose, or not?

    The dealer couldn't answer me, because they had never seen this before. But yet i bought it from them, oem mopar parts.

    Thanks

    No it does not get crimped like the other end, once its on you need a disconnect tool to remove it from the line.

    thanks, already have the disconnect tool. next question, the fitting is missing the 'spring' clip thingy that goes inside it. any idea where to get that?

    thanks for being the only one to respond to my previous question :party36:

    Hi guys,
    New here, I just picked up a 99 1500 5.9, and trans fuild is leaking from the passenger front, which seems to be the lines from the trans to the trans cooler or rad.
    What tool did you get the disconnect the lines? Did you rent it?

    Maybe a picture will help, there really isn't a lot in those connectors.

    i found a clip. i had to buy a complete other connector and steal the clip from it lol. its the 4 prong clip inside the connector that mates with the ridge on the 3/8" transmission line

    Hes referring to the retainer clip. However I would advise not hooking that cooler line up. What probably happened was the truck suffered a catastrophic transmission failure and debris got all inside the cooling system. So the stock cooler was bypassed and am external cooler hooked up in its place.
