need help asap

Ok so I just did some work on my truck, replace the Y pipe in the back what a nightmare that was, any how I removed the radiator to replace the water pump and thermostat, and when I removed them the trans cooler lines were rusted up pretty good, ok so I just put the radiator back in and now I have a leak from the passenger side trans cooler line on the radiator, Now a black o ring did drop out and I put it back into the nipple coming out of the radiator but I still have a leak, any ideas this radiator is a year old i sure hope I dont need a new one.

Ya don't unscrew the fittings out of the radiator if you did most likley your screwed and will have to either replace it or have a shop pull the lower tank and reset the fittings. I learned the hard way, cost me a new radiator, the trans coolin lines unsnap and they be a major ***** to unsnap with out a special little tool. I made my own after messing up my fittings and finding out how they come apart. Good luck to you. Oh the little o ring goes on the tube that unsnaps and slips out.
