04 indy, not sure if I should buy the 1st of 2nd design Neutral (hopefully 2nd as they're much cheaper).

You will need to find the build date for your car.

built before February 1, 2004 = first design

If you can't find it, just PM me your VIN and I'll look it up for you.

DAMMIT Sticker says 1/04, of course it's the more expensive part.

Is it not possible to use the 2nd design lines then? What's the reason if not?

You cant use the 2nd design without replacing the fittings at the transmission where the lines connect to. Or,... you can get the 2nd design and cut the pipe a bit shorter so it will go in the fitting properly. But I wouldn't recommend it. Laughing

Neutral

I just dont want to buy a crummy part that'll fail quickly, unless I'm mistaken, it feels like buying plastic intake gaskets when you know there are metals ones out there.

You got 8 years out of the first set of tranny lines. I wouldn't worry about it.

Alright, am I going to lose a lot of fluid when the lines come off, or will it just be whatever's in the lines/tranny cooler?

Alright thanks. Still waiting for them to get here, in the meantime I was going to try to disconnect them, but I"m having a terrible time. Was starting with the top one. The plastic piece came off easily, but getting the retaining ring off: I don't understand this. The directions I found was to insert a screwdriver into an open end and rotate the ring. Unless I'm doing something wrong, I can't get the ring to rotate more than it does on its own. Are there any tricks to this? Is this the same type of connection on the tranny side as well?

Take a small flat head screw driver to the end of the clip. Pry one end out and rotate it off. Its the same type of connection on each end of the line, try doing one of the Trans side first as they are more easily accessible. The radiator side is a little more obscured and trying to get them off without knowing how will be more difficult.

Ah my problem might be the screwdriver I'm using is too big. Time to hit the dollar store.

Update: the parts came in, but I'm worried abouta 90 degree bend. Does this look right to you guys?

I'm probably going to get chastised for asking this, but would cutting out the rubber portion (it's leaking at the crimps) and just hose clamping a piece of tranny oil hose in its place, fine for this? Seeing as how I'm going to return the hoses I got since I don't trust that 90 at all, I could probably save some money.

The bend is fine. Cutting out the crimped hose section and replacing it with a rubber hose and hose clamps to save $45 is ridiculous.

It'll work though, correct? I'm just worried about that bend, it's so thin and flat. The last thing I want to worry about is the tranny overheating because of restricted flow.

Its not going to hurt anything. Its a higher pressure system so there isnt as much flow. My stock lines were bent worse than that.
