There is no high pressure in these lines. You can buy Ribber gas hose and clamp it between the broken sections of the Hard line

SOURCE: loose hose

This sounds to me like it may be a hose for some type of vacuum modulator that may be located within the transmission case. Look around the transmission on the underside of the car for any signs of any vacuum lines that may not be attached. It may also attach somewhere along the top of the transmission. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: automatic transmission - radiator line leak

The cooling system is pretty much self explanatory hoses go from and to the most obvious places...(you wouldn't try to stretch the lower hose all the way across to the upper hose connection). The trans cooler in the radiator can actually be connected either way. It is non-directional, being a simple coil inside the radiator tank. If you want to install an external trans cooler, that's a bit different...it needs to go on the outflow side of the radiator so it can further cool what the radiator has already cooled down. An easy way to find out which side is the return line, simply take one fitting off the radiator, remove the coil wire so engine dosen't start and "bump" the engine over till trans fluid comes out. if out of radiator nipple you are on the correct side, out of hose, install on other side. Leaking lines can be partially replaced using brass compression fittings made for this. Only use them on straight clean runs, not on heavy rust or bends.

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.

As far as I know, that clip is not replaceable... (called a quick disconnect).
The entire tube assembly may be, and likely can be done by any decent radiator shop. Assuming the end part that broke is the radiator end. Otherwise, you will need to get a replacement line either from a dealer or from a scrapyard. There may be several "jury rig" options you could use to make a repair, but I don't recommend doing that there because of the location.(tight and difficult to reach) Jury rig is fine for stuck in the woods situations...do it right if you're home.

SOURCE: transmission leak 2000 gmc sonoma

Common for the transmission line to the radiator has failed due to corrosion. You can replace the line or section it off bad part with a new line, just make sure you use compression clamps. I had the same problem and i ended up running a new line with a inline remote transmission oil filter. B&M makes a universal remote transmission oil filter and runs around $45.00. Good luck and hope it's just the line that went bad, keep me posted.

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.

How to replace the trans cooler line connector in the radiator with clip 2000 s-10 zr-2


The tanks are plastic and if the hose fitting broke out then the fix is a new radiator. As in radiator coolers are prone to failure before you invest in a new radiator , consider buying an air to air oil cooler to cool the transmission oil . The oil will run at ambient temp and not at 95 degrees c or hotter and the radiator is not having the load of trying to cool really hot oil. Talk with an auto transmission shop to get some details and I think that you will find the oil cooler cheaper than a new radiator.

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.

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

My transmission line that connects to the radiator


The easiest fix is to get a transmission fluid cooler & use it to replace the fan connection completely. Basically you'll just shorten your lines a bit to clamp a hose over them & connect both lines to the 2 lines on the cooler. the cooler installs onto the front of the radiator with push through connectors that makes it easy to install & it will provide you even better trans. cooling in the warm months.

I have seen people use just a hose to connect the 2 lines & not have any problem in the cooler months but you really do need the trans fluid cooled during the warmer months to prevent trans damage.

check you fluid & top it off properly after making the repair!

Good Luck
