Re: AUTO TRANS OILCOOLER HOSE
Do u need to replace a damaged or rotted section of trans. coolant line? If that is what u are asking, just purchase a section of rubber gas line and hose clamps, cut out the damaged section, install hose and clamps. Works great.

The passages that the oil runs through inside the oil cooler have likely become corroded and are allowing oil out/coolant in. This has been an ongoing issue with vehicles using extended life antifreeze, particularly Dexcool. The antifreeze becomes corrosive and rapidly wears components that it passes through, i.e. radiator, heater core, oil cooler, etc.
I hope this is a routine maintenance replacement...Ask to see the radiator hoses at your local parts store...the exact replacement is best used for a perfect fit...in rare cases the replacement has to be slightly modified...(usually length) be sure the fit clears all fans...etc...there are 2 hoses involved, called the upper, and lower radiator hoses...the upper attaches to the water inlet on the motor...and the upper radiator connection...the lower connects to the water pump, and the radiator...when removing expect a major water spill...try to catch with a trash can lid under the front of your Acura...use new hose clamps in re-assembly. Hope this helps.
Hello What happened is the tube that goes thru the radiator sprung a leak and coolant is getting in the trans and visa-vera so the answer that you got is 100% correct. But you have to change trans fluid and coolant and do NOT drive or you will be buying a new trans. Thanks
I doubt this is the overheat problem especially if you've been keeping the oil level up in the trans. If the steel line is leaking you can cut it and slide a few inch long piece of hose over the line in between the cut and use two small band clamps on either side of the hose.
The overheat problem could be due to a headgasket(which this car is famous for) or thermostat or maybe the radiator itself is cracked and the coolant as well as trans fluid are leaking out.
remove upper and lower hoses
remove 2 10 ml bolts on top lift rad out and insert new rad
if there is auto trans remember to undo the lines from the rad
allways replace ruber bushings if the fall our or are missing
u just don't hook up anything to the cooler fittings on the radiator, it installs just like a standard radiator. All after market replacement radiators have fittings for automatic trans cooler lines, they don't make a manual trans radiator, u just use the auto trans one.
You have to remove the bumper and remove the radiator from the front, first time I did it it took me many hours but with practice, I replaced mine thrice and might have to again, it goes quickly. Is your car an auto because there is a auto trans cooler that you have to disconnect.
