I would say yes..the back crossmember needs lowered..and a special open wrench is used to remove the lines..fluid will bleed out of them also..

Cooling transmision lines

Make sure that you use thee correct tools when removing the hose. Important to keep in mind that these lines seize up so you may need to heat the fittings.
When installing new line, good idea to use a little anti-seize and then top off transmission fluid with vehicle running and it has reached operating temperature.

My transmission went on my 2001 Ford Windstar LX. The overdrive light was flashing on and off when I was driving it on the highway and when I came to a stop steam was coming out of the engine compartment....

Steven, The trans cooling lines run from the transmission to the radiator tank. This cools the trans fluid. Making new lines is challenging and takes expierence and special tools. Usually the lines will break where a bracket holds the line to the engine or trans. Look for a rust spot or shinny spot rubbed on the line and that is most likely where the leak is. You may be able to buy this line already made but probabally only from the dealer.

Leaking o-ring in rear area of transmission. Leaving spots on garage floor dignosed as o- ring seal. How much trouble is to repair?

The o-ring is likely to be either on the Filler tube or on one of the transmission lines. Both are relatively simple to repair. The filler tube can be unbolted (usually one bolt) then carefully turned back and forth and pulled up until the bottom is exposed. Simple remove the old o-ring and install a new one then reinstall the tube and re-bolt. The transmission lines may use a special locking ring to hold them into place, you can rent a tool from you auto parts store to remove the line and replace the o-rings.

Transmission oil lines leaking

The lines have holes in them? Or are they just leaking at the connections? If just the connections, then all you need is two wrenches of the correct size. One on the permanent fixture nut like the radiator or the transmission, and the other wrench goes on the line. After removal, clean the threads, and apply some teflon tape and reassemble. tight is tight, and too tight is broke (stripped).
