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?

    I replaced lines because the rubbing together caused the leak It was not slipping or doing what it is doing before It could be slipping but there is no jerk of any sort it just will not go into first gear well

SOURCE: My radiator (1996 Ford Explorer) is leaking at the

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

SOURCE: Transmission coolant line leaking on the transmission side.

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.

I need to replace my transmission cooler lines on my 1995 GMC Jimmy is there just the bolts that hold them to the transmission and radiator or do I have to lift up on the motor or is there clamps ?


All of the transmission fluid can leak out. The cooling lines are there to cool the tranny fluid, and it is circulated through the radiator by means of a pump. If a line is leaking, the pump will just empty the fluid out through the leak. The lines are usually just held in place by clamps to keep them from chafing through against the body or chassis, so replacing them should be quite an easy job. Just undo the bolts that hold them to the box and the radiator, undo however many clamps hold them in place, and reverse the procedure with new pipes.

New tranny in my 92 ssei now it has tranny fluid in the rad ???????


The transmission and engine are there own entities. Unfortuantly the radiator in some vehicles cool the tranny fluid. Its possable when the coolant lines were disconnected from the transmission or from the radiator, the seal was broken on the radiator where the line goes in from the radiator, so you wont see it because its internal. This will allow trans fluid to enter into the radiator. Be careful with trans fluid mixed with the coolant may cause engine damage. Your solution to the problem if this is infact the source would mean replacing the radiator, if you do this be sure to flush the coolant system to rid trans fluid.

Radiator fluid leaking, not from radiator or hoses going into engine block. Comes out from above transmission pan.


If the leak is back there? sounds like an intake gasket or head gasket if you ruled out the hoses

The 4R100 has the bypass cooler it is located on the passenger side if the trans. it goes from the rear cooler line follows the case to the front cooler line, and is attached with 7/8" banjo bolts. the bypass cooler was designed to keep the fluid in the transmission until it reached operating temp it "bypasses the cooler at the radiator until trans fluid needs to b cooled

Oil Lead after new radiator and upper hose installation


It sounds like one of the transmission cooling lines is leaking, where they attach to the radiator. There may be a rusty section that was 'bumped' while the hoses were being replaced, causing it to leak. If the section that is leaking is not the fitting at the radiator, but a bit away from it, you can cut the section of tubing at the leak, purchase and slip a section of rubber fuel line over the bad area, clamp both ends with small clamps. Make sure the tranny fluid is at the proper level, don't drive it low.

My 94 chevy is leaking tranny fluid from the line to the radiator


What are you asking hear, if you know wear its leaking then you have to bite the bullet and fix it, there is no easy way, the only other way is you have to take the cross member out and drop the tranny down to get a clear shot at it its up to you.

Transmission oil leaking from radiator


Either you have loose connections for Transmission cooler in rad, or your tranny cooler in the rad is defective. First, check the transmission lines and connections to the rad. If they are tight you'll have to either replace the rad or put an exterior tranny cooler on your car.

I have a leak of my tranny fluid and I think its from my transmission cooling lines,radiator or the cooler. Should I install an auxilary cooler for the transmission ?


Most cooler manufactures and automobile manufactures information we have read, recommends installing the coolers In-Series with the factory radiator cooler for maxium cooling efficiency.

If you must bypass the radiator because the cooler tube is leaking or for other reasons, be sure to increase the size cooler you install by 1 to 2 sizes.

It is not necessary but will help in the long run. Expecially if you are towing or do alot of driving.
