Question about Chevrolet Cavalier
I broke the transmission line that connects to radiator do i have to get the same type of hose or can i rig it somehow
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.

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.

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.
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.

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.

Testimonial: "very helpful, the line popped out of the tranny, clip-on type. I do not understand what would cause it. Thanks"
