Transmission Line removal

My Transmission line just broke and all the fluids leaked.
my question is there is a rubber flex hose that looks like it goes to the radiator then it hooks on to the metal line that goes to the trany, I tried to looses the two hook-ups and it just broke in two where they meet, my question is what size wrench is neened to remove the line at the transmission?
Also I hope I did not do any damage to the trany the line blew out on me on the highway I noticed it shifting wierd thats when I stopped it and had it towed home after I fix the line how can I tell if there was any damage done, I know there is still fluid in it because it hasn'r stopped leaking. Thanks

I replaced the caliper and the line is still leaking how to stop it from leaking


If it is the rubber line attaching to the caliper, you need to replace the short rubber hose. The hoses do wear out over time from all the flexing stress involved. All parts stores sell them.
If the leak is from a steel line, that section of line will have to be replaced. Not likely any GM dealer would still carry a parts line for a discontinued Cutlass, nor would any parts store ever carry brake line sections (except for the rubber hoses). One could find the same section from a salvage yard, or have a shop construct the broken section from brake line tubing, with proper fittings at each end.
In most cases, it is the rubber brake hose that develops leaks. So, back to the parts store. When replaced, the brakes will have to be bled, to get trapped air out of the brake lines.

I have a leaking hose on 1989 chrysler new yorker 3.0 v6, coming from the transmission one goes to the ac grill the other back around, does anyone know what those hoses are the lower radiator hose connects...


Those are the transmission fluid cooler lines-one is the pressure line, other is the return line-back into the transmission. Often the cooling reservoir is built into the radiator. Apparently yours has a separate cooler in front of the radiator. It would be that and not the a/c grill.
Automatic transmissions generate a lot of heat. Without a way to cool the transmission fluid, the fluid could get burned-it will look blackened, and is very bad for transmissions. Check your transmission fluid and add if necessary. Stop the leak-it may just be a loose fitting, or a broken line or hose.

Trans fluid in radiator tray


You are leaking transmission fluid from either the fluid cooling lines that run from transmission to a separate reservoir in the radiator, or leaking from the reservoir itself. Hopefully, it's only the lines and may just need tightening to stop the leak.
There are two lines to the radiator's reservoir. One brings fluid from transmission to the reservoir, and a return line back into the transmission. Probably located on driver's side of the radiator, one will be near top of radiator, and one near the bottom. Small copper or steel lines that may also turn into rubber lines. Clean the area well with rags to locate the leak. Will probably need to have the car running to make it leak, while looking for it. You could also take a wrench and try tightening the fittings at the radiator, and tighten any rubber hose clamps that you see. If it's not the lines or hoses that are leaking, then the radiator may need to be pulled off for repairs or replacement. But 9 times out of ten, it is a leak from one of the lines.
When fixed, don't forget to check your transmission fluid level. Or keep adding till it is fixed.

Crossing the lines would not cause a leak. i think you need to take a good look at the lines and see if its the connection to the radiator or a rusted line or bad hose, some of theses came with the trany lines being all rubber hose from ****** to radiator and some were rubber and then change to metal tubing , anyway it doesnt matter which you have but i will bet its leaking from the lines , it may be the line itself or the connection at the radiator, clean the area with some engine cleaner and rinse off then run the engine and watch where the leak comes from, maybe the line just needs tightening. good day.

Transmission line replacement


Just remove the hose,measure the inside diameter and buy the correct size and type hose, Get an extra foot to work with. Now --Trans Hose is not fuel hose. Most Auto Parts Stores don't carry the correct hose. Go to a trans shop or trans supply house. Also ,you can use Power Steering Hose-same stuff. If the hose is cripped to the long lines you mentioned,just remove them ,so you can work on them ,while cutting off the furrel. Just don't cut into the aluminum line. The entire assy most likey is not avail

Im leaking transmission fluid from what appears to


Make sure you don not run low on transmission fluid in your transmission. Low transmission fluid will cost you a new transmission. You have the transmission line that connects to the upper passenger side or the radiator and the lower passenger side of the radiator. Determine which line has gone bad and you can buy a rubber transmission line hose at most Auto Parts store like Parts Source. Cut off out the section with a pipe cutter that has corroded through and replace with the transmission hose. Make sure you tell them it's a transmission line hose your looking for and don't use any other hose and double clamp with a compression clamps at ether end. If it's the connection at the radiator that has gone bad, replace that end and do that same as you would to sectioning off the the corroded line and try not to have more then 3 inches of repaired section. What ever you do, do not add any stop leak, this will create problems with the shift solenoids and check valves in your valve body in the transmission causing a transmission replacement soon after adding. Good luck and keep me posted.

I took my car in for an oil change and they said I have a leak in my transmission line leading to the radiator. What do i need to get done and how much will this cost?


This line is your transmission cooling line, it cools the fluid by sending through the radiator. Depending on where the leak is going to increase the cost. You can buy a new line for 15-30.00 if needed, although you may fix by tightening the connections or if there is a hole in the line you can slip a short section of rubber hose over the line then clamp with hose clamps to repair the hose. Hope this helps.
