You will have to remove them and wrap the threads on the lines with white teflon tape. Be sure to wrap in the opposite direction of the way the threads run. Good luck. Dont forget to rate.

SOURCE: Replaced Radiator Now Trans is Leaking?

Did you run the engine while the trans cooler lines where loose or disconnected? no it will not come out the fill pipe unless the trans is severely overheated. How much did you add to the trans, it holds about 2-1/2 gallons, it will show empty at a little over 1-1/2 pints on the dip stick. Only check trans levels with a hot transmission, if you fill it to the line cold you have overfilled the trans, this can cause damage to the trans clutch pack from air bubbles.

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.

SOURCE: trans fluid leaking from radiator from metal lines

if you have trans fluid leaking from the radator I would check the line connections if not leaking from there than you will need a new radator or have it recondtioned.

SOURCE: trans fluid leaking from line going into radiator

it depends on where the leak is. if there is enough room to splice a piece of hose on it then you can just cut it and add a piece of gas line hose to it. make sure you double clamp it at each end

Installed a new radiator - now a small trans fluid leak at bottom of radiator where trans fluid enters radiator.


You didn't get anything cross-threaded, hopefully? I don't know year--make--model--engine size of vehicle?

Usually when I mount a new radiator, I set the radiator in place, then hook up the tranny lines, first, before the radiator mounts, incase I need to move the radiator a little, to get the threads on the tranny lines to match up with fitting threads on the radiator. I usually tighten the tranny lines last.

Take the leaking line loose, check to see if threads look ok? You may have to take radiator mount loose, so you can move the radiator a little to get threads to match up properly. I haven't used thread tape on plastic lines, I guess you could try it, if else fails?

2000 impala red circle recessed in radiator is leaking replace repair? ect...


It seems that the "black bolt" is the bolt-shaped sheet metal around the fitting for your trans cooler line. If you are certain that your connection is good and the leak is coming from around that fitting then you will have to replace your radiator as the area around the fitting is probably cracked. Take a good close-up look, with an inspection mirror and a light, to try to determine from where the fluid is leaking.
Does your other line have an O-ring?

New tranny in my 92 ssei now it has tranny fluid in the rad ???????


The transmission and engine are there own entities. Unfortuantly the radiator in some vehicles cool the tranny fluid. Its possable when the coolant lines were disconnected from the transmission or from the radiator, the seal was broken on the radiator where the line goes in from the radiator, so you wont see it because its internal. This will allow trans fluid to enter into the radiator. Be careful with trans fluid mixed with the coolant may cause engine damage. Your solution to the problem if this is infact the source would mean replacing the radiator, if you do this be sure to flush the coolant system to rid trans fluid.

I'm losing automatic transmission fluid. Is there any common history to support a theory of leaking transmission cooling lines?


I just checked for technical service bulletins and there is nothing for leaks from tranny or lines. Your vehicle is 15 years old if they havent been replaced yet it is possible it it just time to change them. Check where it goes from metal to rubber on the lines that is most likely where it will be wet. If itis wet there more than likely you'll need new lines

How to fix a leak to the auto trans oil cooling line its leaking wher the line and the radiator is.it is not a major leak but a small and my car tends to over heat is that the problem


I doubt this is the overheat problem especially if you've been keeping the oil level up in the trans. If the steel line is leaking you can cut it and slide a few inch long piece of hose over the line in between the cut and use two small band clamps on either side of the hose.

The overheat problem could be due to a headgasket(which this car is famous for) or thermostat or maybe the radiator itself is cracked and the coolant as well as trans fluid are leaking out.
