Dizzy URGENT: Help Needed!

i hate my life.

to make a long story short i'm in the process of replacing my radiator and the bolt on the end of the small metal tube on the lower left (drivers) side (ATF tube?) is totally rounded off. I cant get a grip on it with any tool i have, so im going to need to just break it off and get a new one. Does anyone know the part number, or where I can get the part (the whole tube or the end, or whatever), and can anyone explain to me how to disconnect the opposite end (which appears to go into the engine block) so I can run down to saturn, get the part, and replace it?

Thanks!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Have you tried the Craftsman Bolt out kit?

I have gotten some bolts out where I rounded the head off completely..

The bolts pictured below was that from an exhaust manifold that snapped off on me. I had to drill out the nut and slide it over the bolt. Weld the nut to the bolt and take it off with the Craftsman tool. The set cost 12.00 at Sears and if it wouldn't have worked, I would have had to take the block to a machine shop to get tapped out.

The tool is worth it's weight in gold.

Thanks for the help Grid.

I called up my local Saturn and my service manager was more than happy to tell me what the part was, and he set one aside for me.

I forgot how amazing and friendly my dealer is.

Thank you, Saturn of Rochester.

Sounds like the trans cooler line. Common enough for them nuts on the line to rust and sieze up. To get it off of the trans squeeze the plastic clip together (into the line) and pull it out of the fitting. Lube the new one with a bit of trans fluid before installing into the trans.
