I need to reconnect the transmission cooler line (lower) to the new radiator I just installed on my 1998 Dodge Ram 1500. Is there a special tool I need? No matter how hard I try to push the hose in, it won't connect.
Thanks!

Still having trouble with it. Temped to cut the line and just use a clamp.

Sometimes I have taken the one fitting out of the old radiator and put it into the new radiator if that one seems to work better. It sucks reusing from the old one, but I have needed to do this before with aftermarket radiators.
