When a radiator starts springing leaks its time to replace. You can try rad weld or similar hole plugging solutions, and they work quite well too, but it won't last long. Sometimes, if you can actually see the leak, it can be soldered shut. If it's hard to see leak then maybe get new rad.

I have a coolant leak around the transmission line fitting on the top radiator fitting on an 95 Ford f150 with a 6 cylinder. Can this fitting be replace by myself.

Yes, this is a pretty easy fix. You can replace the fitting but I would buy the replacement line and put that in. the fittings will already be on it and bent to fit. If you are leaking at the fitting there are probably several other points along the line that are ready to pop.

I have a 1998 chevy suburban k1500. I was told the radiator didnt have the eoc but when called around for a new radiator i was told they dnt make one without the eoc. which one is correct

a radiator is used to cool the coolant as long as it has a top and bottom hose fitting in the right place for your engine and an oil cooler fittings for the transmission , there will be little difference in what ever else there is
some have a radiator cap and a hose to a reservoir and other do not have a cap as it is on the reservoir
the radiator shop will know the correct radiator to fit

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.

The ****** cooler line conected to top of radiator is leaking ****** fluid. i removed cleaned and re tightened it but still leaks.

There are two possibilities.

The fitting on the radiator side is bad and the radiator will need to be replaced.


The fitting on the transmission cooler is bad and the cooler line will need to be replaced.

Is this an O.E. radiator or aftermarket. I know some after market radiators come with a fitting that needs to be installed in between the radiator and the cooler line. If you have this style it may just be the fitting that is bad.

Let me know if you have any questions and I'll be happy to answer them. thank you for using!

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?

I noticed a spot on the pavement when walking out to my car. I took it to have the oil changed and they told me I had a leak in my transmission coolant line. I then took it to a repair shop where they...

no that does not seem right, you are being taken for a long ride ! have a friend or someone you can trust who can work on it. and go to a auto parts store if you need parts. its a lot cheaper if you do not have to take it to a dealer. have a good day !

My 1998 Chevy Silverado has coolant leaking from the radiator at the small metal fitting at the top drivers side of the rad. Is the a seal that can be replaced or does the entire rad need to be replaced?

There's not usually a seal for these, the metal is commonly molded into the plastic sides of the radiator.. Remove the radiator tube and inspect the plastic around the fitting for cracks. If you find cracks in the plastic, then you know your answer. If it's leaking from around the radiator hose you could try replacing the clamp with a hose clamp that you can tighten with a screw driver.

My guess is the plastic is cracked there, and the radiator needs replaced, but you should inspect it first of course.

Good luck

How to fix a leak to the auto trans oil cooling line its leaking wher the line and the radiator 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.

I cant beleive they dont list holden. regards Ben
