How do my transmission cooling lines go back on ?

(1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera)
in Remus, MI on July 27, 2014
I replaced my send and return trans cooling lines and did not mark them. trans has top and bottom ports/holes and radiator has top and bottom lines, don't want to cross them up. Looks like top goes to top but not sure.

If you still have the old lines, try them back to see how they go without forcing them to fit!!

no can do! they were rusted out and fell apart. Besides, they looked the same, about 6in long and 90
degree bends. I wish I knew someone with the same car!!! thanks anyway----------Dan

I'm 90% sure that if you have someone start the engine while you look at the fittings, the one that the fluid starts pouring out of goes to the top!!! Won't take long to see this so won't have to run it for long at all... Just be a little mess to clean up, not much though. Also, any GM A body car will be the same... ie,,, Chev Clebrity... Pont 6000... Hell, maybe try google images...... One reason I can't tell you for SURE... I always try to remember or mark the old ones SO I remember!!... Had to throw that in there!

you cant throw that in there if I already admitted the fuck-up! Thanks, I ran the engine for 10 seconds, juice came out of the bottom port of tranny, hooked it up to the top line of radiator, so far so good!
