Yep, that's the liquid A/C line coming from the condenser. The transmission cooler lines should be underneath the truck.

It was my understanding that when someone flushes the transmission lines and sump, they disconnect it at the cooler and start the engine. I'm not sure how it works but one of the lines then pumps out old fluid and you put the other line in a bucket full of new fluid and it draws it in, letting the engine do all the work.

I recommend you look at this thread by [MENTION=90306]Especial86[/MENTION], and do what he says by dropping the pan and installing a drain plug and doing a few fluid exchanges.

Thank you for the idea of two buckets one with fresh the other for old. i also know that it should pump out 1 quart every 15 seconds or there could be a clog.
