Default radiator replacement: 95 Accord EX Auto

I am doing a radiator replacement on a 95 Accord EX automatic. I've done
many standard shift radiators, but very few automatics.

There is a transmission oil cooling circuit running through the radiator.
When I disconnect the oil lines, will tranny oil pour out of a line(s)?
Should I plan on plugging these lines while I remove the radiator? If I
lose much oil, is topping off the auto trany as easy as pouring the correct
oil into the dipstick tube, or is there a more complicated fill procedure?

I'm hoping the oil lines are empty with the engine off. Can anyone let me
know what I'm in for?

thanks,

Andy

get some small plastic(like plastic bags, real little ones.. and some
rubber bands to hold the plastic onto the metal tubes... when out take
one off the tube is pulled out and you put the plastic bag over to tube
with the rubber band over it to hold it on... do this to each and you
will hardly loose any oil, just whats in the line.....the only way you
gonna get much oil out is if the motor is on pumping the oil....
and never put the old oil back in the transmission.. you might check
your oil level when finished and it might either need some or might not,
probably none needed...
