Happens to me all too often. Are they metal lines with screw-in brass fittings? They won't line up just right? If so, be careful to not cross-thread them. Sometimes you can loosen the fitting at other end of line to get just enough slack to get it right for screwing in at the radiator. Or it might be easier to loosen the radiator mounts, so you could move the radiator to line up with the cooler lines fittings. Good luck, or if you have something different, post back.

SOURCE: tran.leak in the cooling line though the radiator

If your getting coolant introduced to transmission fluid or vise-versa, you need to change rad & make sure you flush both cooling system & especially transmission thoroughly a.s.a.p. before it takes out the transmission, if damage hasn't already been done.

Cant get the trans coolent lines to go in radiator, the part inside the radiator keeps moving around!! Please help


The secondary cooling coils should be soldered into place. Take the radiator to a radiator shop and have it soldered.

1995 Lexus ES 300 Overheating


When you refilled the radiator did you burp the system to get all the air out of the lines if you get trapped air in the coolent system then the coolent doesn't circulate like its supposed to and gets hot spots. If you arent confident on how to do it take it to a shop and they will get you squared away. (To do it yourself with the vehicle cold park with the radiator at the highest point take off the radiator cap and let the vehicle run till it warms up and then watch for air bubbles and then top off your radiator and put the radiator cap back on your done)

hope this helps

My 1996 Maxima leaks water from what looks like a hose going into the front of the engine block


ok check the hose if its very soft feeling you may need to replace sounds like a coolent hose. also make sure the hose is tight on the block fitting maby the band has worked loose may just need to be tightned, then refill your radiatior with new fluid. you should be fine. remember to do this after the car is completly cool you dont need a coolent burn and it will stay hot awhile so its best to get the hose you need [if you need one] the day before with the coolent, that way you can do it first thing in the morning when its cool. also if green coolent comes out green coolent goes back if orange coolent comes out orange coolent goes back in. never mix those typs of coolents they are not compatible.. you will probily loose all you coolent so drain it at the bottom of radiator before you start. unless you like laying in it to work on the hose. then refill all is well.. i hope this helped you.. also youtube has alot of good videos on radiator type stuff just type in radiator hose replace and you should get alot of videos on how to do it. who knows they may even have one with the same model as your car.. again i hope this helps good luck

99 cadillac deville engine overheating an loosing coolent couple times a day.Replaced thermostat, water pump ok, cooling fans on at 217deg.,radiator pressure tested an holding pressure.engine still keeps...


Check to see if you have flow through the entire radiator.If part of the radiator core is cool to the touch when the engine is at operating temp, this indicates restricted radiator flow. If the entire radiator core is not allowing water to flow through, cooling will not be at all efficient. Also a good idea would be to purchase a block tester. available at napa and other reputable parts houses for around thirty dollars. You remove a small amount of coolant, and put the tool in the radiator, or pressure tank opening. If there are any combustable gasses present, i'e' exhaust, this would indicate a head gasket breech, (or maybe worse) and would indicate that it's time to stop looking for a simple problems, and get proffessional help. Good luck to you!

I have a 2004 Cherokee and there is coolant in the transmission. Any idea how it got there?


No coolant is suppose to be in transmission. How it got there is easy, you radiator has transmission lines running through the bottom of it. Your radiator has an internal leak into those trans lines. You'll probably find oily substance in coolant also.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. Approx. 165480 mi. and well looked after. Took in for coolent leak (puddle under engine) and reservoir levels always low (duh). On 9/30/10 @ AAA shop told me they did...


I would contact the BBB about the AAA shop. They were taking advantage of you not to mention they did not warranty there work. Plus if they changed the pump they were the ones that left the clamp loose. In the future you should just take it to the shop you know and trust even if it cost you a little to have it towed there, it will be less than getting taken advantage of. It hard to find a good honest shop and it sounds like you have one so give them the business they deserve it.

Put in transmission in feburary.


you will still need add the proper type fluid to proper fill level, get under the truck, clean up transmission so you can visually monitor where the leak is coming from. Chock the wheels, emergency brake set, start and idle vehicle check for leaks. If trans is leaking it will probably be a front seal (oil will drip from small hole in the bottom of bell housing), pan gasket, loose cooling line to radiator, or rear tail shaft leak ( where drive shaft enters the trans.) Don't forget to check the lines for pin holes and the radiator for leaks.
