On my 95 safari van there is an oil leak on the line connection to the rad. The line come from the base of the oil filter.Is this an extra cooling system for the oil when the van is used for towing?


The two oil lines connected at the radiator normally are for transmission oil cooling either way there will be two lines one in one out.. If you are sure it's engine oil you can remove the line cap both connecting fittings.BE absolutely sure They are not to the transmission. Oil from the transmission is pink or smells bad when dirty.

Crossing the lines would not cause a leak. i think you need to take a good look at the lines and see if its the connection to the radiator or a rusted line or bad hose, some of theses came with the trany lines being all rubber hose from ****** to radiator and some were rubber and then change to metal tubing , anyway it doesnt matter which you have but i will bet its leaking from the lines , it may be the line itself or the connection at the radiator, clean the area with some engine cleaner and rinse off then run the engine and watch where the leak comes from, maybe the line just needs tightening. good day.

When i crank up my explorer it is pouring transmission fluid stop at a red light an it leaked out a quart of fluid


You won't go far this way. Its cheaper to tow it than replace a transmission. There are a few fluid lines to check at the transmission. Several servos and the speedometer sender are in the case.
They have gaskets and the plastic may crack. The Transmission pan can leak. The fill tube can separate from the transmission.

If the leak is coming from the inspection cover next to the engine, it can be a front seal, and if the leak is coming from where the drive-shaft slides into the transmission housing, that's a tail-shaft seal.

The fluid lines run to the front of the SUV to the Radiator where there are cooling lines going into the bottom of the Radiator. It can leak from a Radiator tank hole because there are 2 separate tanks in the Radiator. Then all you do is replace the Radiator. On some models there may be a separate Air cooled Auxiliary radiator, not to be confused with a power steering cooler.

The fluid lines will rust and need replacing. If you are trying to make a line, there are different flares for the tubing ends. Bring in your bad part to match it up.

I hope my solution is helpful to you. You need to be under the SUV to see anything. Even a quick change lube bay would make it possible to find a leak.

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.

Check transmission fluid if low replace fluid with engine running look for leaks under car I would suspect a rusted out transmission line .Replace line or have line replaced with brake line of same size.refill fluid. If fluid is full check for loose or broken transmission linkage if none of the above are found replace or have transmission rebuilt.

Changing fuel filter and transmission fluid on a 1990 gran prix


just follow the fuel line and you will find the fuel filter ,but if its running ok then just check the fuel lines for deterioration and leave well alone ,the fuel pumps at the garage have filters in them so you shouldnt need to change the filter unless the metal casing is rusting,as for the transmission again if it works ok then do not disturb as its only hydraulic oil and it doesnt get dirty like engine oil but if your gearbox is showing signs of bad changes and you can see bits of worn brake band in it then change the vehicle as even if you change the oil it will pack up with or without a oil change.

WHERE TO ADD TRANSMISSION FLUID ON A 1997 TOYOTA COROLLA WITH AUTO TRANSMISSION. ALSO, THERE IS A STREAM OF TRANS OIL EXITING JUST AHEAD OF THE TRANSMISSION ITSELF. IT APPEARS THAT EITHER THE SUPPLY-LINE...


you can add transmission fluid through the dipstick tube for the transmission. as far as the lines, most transmission fluid lines are rubber in the middle and aluminum on the ends, so they shouldn't rust. if its leaking fluid that fast, its probably a hole in the rubber part. also make sure the dipstick tube is seated well in the transmission. neither one of which is hard to fix, just determine where the leak is coming from first
