goin to be putting in my gauges soon and i bought the hot line with the gauge port in it for the trans temp sender. how much fluid am i goin to lose when i pull the old line off? im thinkin it cant be more than a couple qaurts because most of the fluid will be either in the pan or torque converter, but just want to know for sure so i can have some new fluid on hand if needed.

I lost a little under a quart. Remove the upper end (at cooler) first. There are two nuts on the bottom end (tranny) connection. Only remove the outer nut. Use two wrenches.

Nah! No problems. Just make sure you clean the mess with carb cleaner and check for leaks after install a few times.
