Prity simple job
I would replace the line much better fix then splicing it.
dis connect the line from the radiator then trace it back to the transmission and disconnect it there,
take the old line in to a auto parts store to compare to the new one,
you will loose a bit of trans fluid so check it after you replace the line.
Let me know how it goes

How to install a harness for trailer lights on a 1993 honda accord station wagon

The SIMPLE way to do it is...

You can buy replacement taillight bulbs with wiring pigtail wiring hanging out of the side of the bulb. You'd use them to replace your existing taillight bulbs and connect your trailer harness to the pigtail wires. You may need to drill through the taillight housing to get the harness wiring in to the bulbs - if you have to do that, seal it back up around the wiring with RTV silicone.

That's a lot easier than tracking down each wire, probing it to find out what it does, and splicing into it with pinch splices (which aren't very reliable), then periodically replacing the pinch splices that've gone bad and made your trailer lights fail. You can make a pretty good splice to the pigtailed taillight bulbs, and it's really easy to tell what each pigtail does - brake/turn or park light.

Brake line routing diagragm

If the lines are that bad, there is no simple cure but to replace them!
Check with a dealer (I know, I cringe at this thought,too! LOL) if a kit of preformed lines is available for a reasonable price; otherwise, you or somebody else, will have to remove each line separately to replace it. You would need a bender and the proper flaring tool and wrenches to do the job right... some of the fitting nuts may be unique to those connections so far as size goes. If you have the time and patience and a helper, you can save the labor costs. You will also need to find out the proper way to bleed the whole system once you have finished!

Where are the fly wheel bolts on a 98 dodge neon

On the motor where it connect to the tranmission. You have to back the tranmission off the motor to access it. You also gone have to remove the starter too.It should have three or four bolts in it. You can also free the motor from the tranmission but i found the first way a little more easier. Hope that way helps you just much as it did me!

Best way to repair rusted main brake line to rear of car. do i have to replace the whole line or can i splice it? its rusted above rear axel

It is best to replace the complete line, if it is rusted and you splice it , another leak spot might spring a leak, when you last expect it, better safe than sorry.

well, you drop the pan. This job is tricky to have not leak. I suggest that you go to a lube shop, and have them flush the system, then change the filter, in the trans.

Flushing gets the fluid in the torque converter, cooler, lines and the rest of the trans. Nothing is as complete. My fav. is the t-tech machine...What they do is open the cooling line, run the engine and flush new fluid in while allowing old to exit. They do this until clean fluid comes out...

Cool process.

On my 99 saturn sl 1.9, I have a bad transmision fluid leak from the oil cooler line at the transmision end, what kind of fitting is that? do I need to replace the hose assembly or can I just replace the...

Hi Bob and welcome to Fixya. Most of those lines are a standard line that just push on and you clamp them in place. Go to any auto parts place tell them your make and model along with the issue that you have where the cooling line mates to the tranmission. NAPA and Auto Zone have computerized images that you can actually point to the area where you have the leak.

I am most certain they will be able to solve your problem with the correct parts without much expense in no time.
