    I believe that it is the same size as the cooler line o-rings.

    Yep. ATF cooler line. Thereís a small o-ring there. O-rings get old, and shrink, crack, or whatever, then leak.

    So, clean the area, pull the line out, replace the o-ring. Itís probably a .25...

    I've done just one throttle body, in my three Volvos, and I simply went through Xemodex. Pure plug and play. No issues. A few more dollars, but worth it, when you're worried about programming.

    I think the manual states 350# on the tongue and 3,500# total. Thatís a lot for a vehicle the size of the XC and I wouldnít do it without a transmission oil cooler.

    I would also use a xw40 oil,...

    At that mileage, you might consider replacing the collar sleeve. Angle gear has to come out, so you might as well do the seals on it.
