Removing radiator

Hi Guys,

I have a '99 TJ.

i have a small pin-hole leak in the top of the radiator.

I'm gonna remove it myself, and take to the ( ...I'll find somewhere... )

I'm comfortable with the cooling systems, but the (i assume) trans-coolers is also in the radiator.

How do i remove these tubes...?
How much oils will i lose...?
will i get air in my trans, and is that a problem...?
what other issues will i encounter...?

I do computers not mechanics... but I;m a fast learner....

Cheers

just FYI sometimes they can fix that crimp. I thought i had a pinhole leak on the top too. Turns out it was my top radiator hose. My mech was going to charge me 100.00 to pull the radiator. I found a new one locally for under 200.00 if they cant fix yours

I pressure tested it, and it leaks on the opposite side to the radiator cap...
about an inch in...
where the body of the radiator crimps on to the cap

Do you think they might be able to fix the with the radiator in...?

If it was metal you could probably weld it. But im guessing its like mine and its plastic. you could always try JB weld?
