SOURCE: Transmission cooling lines leakage

first check to see if they are loose then check to see if you have a hole in your lines if they are loose then just thighten them up not really tight just snug them up if you have a hole in your line you can replace it with a new one you can find them at any auto parts store also make sure not to cross thread the lines when you put them back on if you replace them or take them off

SOURCE: 1990 Nissan Maxima transmission top vacumn line

I believe the line you are talking about is a vent line not a vacuum line. It should go tp a metal tube that is in a "U" shape. This bolts to one of the bolts on the transmission.

SOURCE: ATF leaking from Cooling line connectors at Transmission

Please trace the leakage before you are sure of what to replace. But I bet you will have to replace the entire hoses that distribute the ATF in case of rust or expirt.

Good luck.

rate this please.

SOURCE: my 2002 chevy impala is leaking transmission fluid

The line could need to be tightened. Tighten it with a 1/2" line wrench.(I think thats the right size for your car) Then check the trans fluid level to be sure its at the right level.

SOURCE: 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.

good luck

Is it posible for the transmission atf to leak inside the radiator. because i dettect water inside the transmission and oil in the radiatorssion smission

most cars have a transmission cooler that runs through the radiator. Most often the coolant goes from the cooling system to the transmission and then quickly ruins the transmission..
you should get this fixed asap, hopefully you can avoid a transmission failure. A quick remedy would be to un hook the transmission cooling lines from the radiator then cap the ends on the radiator and then mount a separate transmission cooler.
The big problem is that you will need to flush that transmission as soon as you can. Get the trans oil changed pronto!

Just replaced a portion of transmission cooling lines on 94 bronco I bypassed leak but wonder if hose from top of radiator go to the top of tranny and so forth for bottom and truck seams to run correctly...

Why do you think the transmission cooling line is the cause of this problem. What testing have you done? Id the transmission fluid clean and the filter has been replaced each 60,000 miles? Do yiou think the transmission is slipping?

I have an 1998 chevy s10 automatic.this morning I noticed transmission fluid on the ground I checked and it comes out from a hose on top of the transmission but I don't see where it hook up?

From what I have read elsewhere: There is an overflow hose on top of transmission behind engine which actually is from the transfer case. Fluid will drip down onto exhaust and eventually catch on fire. Check transfer case for being overfull by taking the top fill plug out. If transmission fluid runs out, I believe the transfer case input shaft seal is shot and needs replaced. Mine caught on fire. I was lucky to get fire out before truck burnt to the ground. If you continue to drive vehicle at have something to put out a fire!!!!

Creamy sludge found in radiator. When open the radiator expansion cap, creamy sludge found. Just do the top overhaul at workshop nearby. What may cause the problem? Thanks

Transmission fluid goes through the radiator to cool. The line could be leaking into the radiator as it goes through. Usually at the near the bottom is where the line goes in and comes out the other side.

Where is the return transmission line located on a 2005 3.7l jeep grand cherokee. By the radiator. But is it on the driver side orcthe passenger side? Is it the top or bottom line?

Generally speaking ... oil goes in hot and comes out colt ... heat rises ... while I an not familiar with your particular car, my guess would be that the hot oil goes in the top and is cooled as it flows down through the cooler and returns to the transmission via the bottom line.

Give it a try ...

On my 92 jimmy you know how it has 2 transmission lines to the transmission radiator cooler top and botom ok now on the trans it has a top and botom do the top of the radiator line go on the top of the...

Ok, the top line goes to transmission, as does the bottom line. They are connected at the transmission and the other end is connected at the cooler to create a path for the transmission fluid to flow through without losing fluid. One is connected at the top and one is connected at the bottom. I hope you understand this, since your question makes no sense to me.
