SOURCE: Tranmission cooler line attached to radiator stuck

There is a short stub line coming from the radiator that joins the rubber line to the radiator. squeeze the tabs on the plastic part on the metal line and the rubber part will separate from it. When replacing, be sure it has locked together or you can have a problem.

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.

I have a transmission fluid leak around the radiator area on the front left of the vehicle. I know there is probably a transmission cooler line running up there. Do you have to take the grille out to get...

No, the lines are between the radiator and the engine, so you have to look at it from the underside and engine side of the radiator. They come straight down and then cross to the trans.

Transmission fluid in raidiator

Lucky it aint the other way around. The transmission cooler is inside the radiator and it's leaking under pressure. On the passenger side of the radiator you can see where two metal lines connect to the radiator. These are the transmission cooler lines. Your best bet is to install a new radiator. Depending on where you live and your driving conditions you can also install an external radiator cooler which mounts in front of the AC condenser, behind the grill. All you have to do is disconnect these two lines at the radiator, plug the holes and connect the new cooler to the lines. Cost about the same for a good external cooler as a new radiator.12_28_2012_2_06_16_am.png

On the front of your truck where your radiator is there is a transmission cooler,there are lines running from your transmission to that cooler they could be leaking, the transmission cooler is behind the grill on the front of your truck infront of your radiator, and as far as a stop leak, myself it is alot cheaper than buying a transmission, I would suggest that you use CD2 transmission stop leak, just a suggestion.

I need instructions on removing and replacing the transmission cooler lines going to the radiator on a 96 jeep grand cherokee. also would a part store carry the replacement assembly or do i need to go to...

Those lines actually go to a small transmission oil cooler mounted behind the grill. Don't be surprised if you end up replacing the entire cooler. The best way to get to it is to remove the front bumper cover, and grill. The bumper is mostly held in place by those plastic push in connectors, and the grill is a pretty straightforward unbolting job. As you remove the grill , make a note of where they placed the wires for the lights, it's very easy to pinch one on re-assembly. I would certainly try an auto parts store first, they are available. Depending on your time frame, I have found the parts online also. It's really a pretty easy fix, just time consuming. Don't hesitate to ask if you have any other questions about this, good luck!

How do you install an external transmission cooler on a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder?

  • you need to remove the lower front skid plate, to acsess and remove one of the trans cooler lines that go into the bottom of radiator.
  • it does not matter which one.
  • there will be about a quarter cup of fluid that will leak out. No big deal just have a drain pan handy to catch the mess.
  • The external cooler hoses gets hooked up, one to the radiator and the other to the line that was unhooked from the radiator.
  • The cooler gets mounted up against the condenser, so you may have to remove the grill so you can slip the cooler behind it in a convenient location.
  • Most coolers come with fasteners that are fairly easy to use.They are nylon stakes that are like a stiff nylon tyrap with a flat locking retainer.that hold the cooler against the condensor and/or radiator
  • All you do is push them through the cooler, then condenser, and/or radiator fins, and click on the retainer..
  • Dont forget to messure and replace the fluid that leaked out.
  • Always use new clean stuff.
I hope this helps,
If it does, dont forget to leave us your feedback.
