Question about Cars & Trucks
Why do you think the transmission cooling line is the cause of this problem. What testing have you done? Id the transmission fluid clean and the filter has been replaced each 60,000 miles? Do yiou think the transmission is slipping?

You can have it repaired at a radiator shop, or replaced with a new one. Are you sure it's the radiator that's leaking, sometimes it's the water pump or a hose that drips down onto the radiator. It can be difficult to locate due to air circulation of the fan and driving which spreads the leaking fluid around. I assume u top off the coolant often, since u say there are no issues w/ it overheating or running hot. If this is the case, the leak will eventually get worse, and adding coolant constantly gets expensive. Good luck, let me know what u decide to do, or if u have any other questions. Curt

Is the line before and after the connector steel? If you can cut the leaking section out w/ a hack saw, u can slip a section of gas line over the trans cooling line, and put a clamp on both ends, quick cheap fix that will last a long time.

If its in the line its self just cut the line in two and take some fuel line hose, the right diameter, slip it over the line with a couple of clamps and that should fix it. Theres not much pressure there and its a cheap fix.

As I said, trans fluid keeps the internal components "alive"... Low fluid level can cause burning of internal clutches, premature hardening of seals (essential to proper transmission of fluid pressure) as well as lubrication of necessary gear components such as planetary gear set (which can cause whine etc. which you now have) All of these components rely upon a constant flow of fluid for both cooling and lubrication. Depending upon how low and how long these parts had interrupted fluid flow, directly influences how much damage was done. I take no joy in telling you that you may have damaged your unit, I'd be far happier if I could give you a quick, inexpensive fix. But based upon what you have said, If I was working hands-on with this problem, I would make the recommendation I've already made. There are pressure tests etc that can be done at a transmission shop to verify to some degree of certainty what is going on within your unit. Hopefully they may find something other than what I've said. At this point though, it is wise to have it checked out by a professional, before you become stranded at a time when you can least afford to be.
