Cooling transmision lines

Ok on this cooling line from radiator to transmission I need to remove it because I hit something on the road and now is leaking but the line has a plastic cover seems it is just a dust protector so the cooling line needs to get disconnected from the radiator and the transmission as well is there a special tool to remove it because it does not have treads so I can use a regular wrench seems that the line is just inserted on the transmission. thanks miguel.

Make sure that you use thee correct tools when removing the hose. Important to keep in mind that these lines seize up so you may need to heat the fittings.
When installing new line, good idea to use a little anti-seize and then top off transmission fluid with vehicle running and it has reached operating temperature.

SOURCE: do I need any special tools to remove driver side cv

nothing "special", but there may be torxs bit bolts on the caliper. I've had mine a really long time so to me they arent special anymore.Other than that it's all wrench and socket stuff.

SOURCE: Help I need help on how to fix a gas line leak on

Go down to your nearest auto parts store, they should have what you need. Might be as simple as cutting the line and using a rubber sleeve around it with a couple hose clamps.

SOURCE: need to replace the transmission cooling lines

they are a type of quick connect fitting. There is a special tool just for these types of fittings. If you remove the plastic cover that goes over the fitting you will see a metal clip in a groove. You can use a small pick to carefully remove the clip (they go flyin and get lost easily but they are available from your local GM dealer or parts store). Once the clip is removed you will be able to pull the line out of the radiator/transmission fitting.

Reinstall the clip after you remove the line. The new line will slide in and click into place.

Why would there be transmisson fluid leaking out of radiator?


Radiators on automatics have a separate reservoir for transm. fluid cooling purposes. Didn't you remove the transm. fluid cooling lines from the radiator-a feed line to the radiator and a return line from radiator to the transmission? They are small steel lines that connect on the end of the radiator.

    How do you remove the lower transmision cooler line from the radiator


    • Hi, I can help.
    • Part of the cooler liner is built into the radiator. It does not remove flush like the top line does. The first few inches of the transmission line is built into the radiator itself.
    • So when looking at the line move back a few inches to that coupler and take the smaller version of a 3/8" gas line tool and remove it from there. I prefer the metal gas line tools.
    • Set it on the radiator side of that line and come down and press into that coupler.

    • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
    • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

    Removing the transmission cooling line fron


    These lines just run straight through the radiator to provide cooling. You can bypass the radiator by adding a transmission fluid cooler, during the cold weather in a pinch, a replacement transmission hose with 2 clamps can be connected between the 2 transmission lines to correct leakage, but in warm weather, the fluid suffers if it doesn't get the benefit of a cooler.

    Aftermarket coolers are relatively inexpensive, especially compared to the long term benefit of keeping the fluid degrees cooler, prolonging the life of the trans.

    I HAVE A 95 FORD AEROSTAR AND MY PROBLEM IS THAT THE TRANSMISION FLUID IS SOME HOW GOING INTO THE MOTOR IS THAT POSSIBLE AND IF SO WHAT MIGHT BE THE PROBLEM THANK YOU FOR HELPING


    It sounds like you have a leak inside your radiator, if you have an automatic transmission the fluid needs to be cooled on long trips, hard loads (towing etc) or on hot days, this is accompished the same way your engine is cooled, by running lines from the transmission then through the radiator, the air going through the rad and also the coolant from the engine cools the tranny fluid then routes the cooled fluid back to the transmission. If the lines that run through the rad have a hole in them the fluid will leak out and into the engine coolant (antifreeze) and the fluid will make it's way into the engine through the engines cooling system, the other side of this is that engine coolant is possibly making it's way to your transmission and this is an even bigger problem as the coolant does not have the lubricity properties needed by your transmission and you are soon going to have operation problems with your transmission. You need to get this fixed soon and have both the engine cooling system and the transmission flushed to remove the cross contamination.

    What is the hose that runs from the transmision to the radiator called on a 1 991 mercury gr. m arquiss? ds_moss@sbcglobalnet.


    It's a line that feeds transmission fluid up to the radiator. Most automatics have radiators that also incorporate a transmission cooler (heat is the #1 killer of auto transmissions). That line allows the fluid to move to the radiator for cooling.
