Question about 1998 Ford Taurus
I purchased a new transmission line connector for my '98 Ford Taurus from the local Ford Dealer for $21.74. The new connector is leaking worse than the old one. The connector has a plastic insert with tabs and an "o'" ring on the inside. You squeeze the tabs and pull the line out of the fitting. It seems pretty straight forward unless you end up with a leak like mine.
The answer to your question is that you don't have to replace the entire line just the connector if you can get it on right which I must have not.
Hope this helps.

Please trace the leakage before you are sure of what to replace. But I bet you will have to replace the entire hoses that distribute the ATF in case of rust or expirt.
rate this please.

You can buy a snap in replacement end that can be bent and attached to 3/8 th's fuel line and by pass the rotted metal line. I have been doing transmissions Since 1981, and have the same rotted lines on my 01 Windstar. I just went to all hose except the line into trans and into radiator. double clamp the hose on the lines and save a lot of money. make sure you sip tie the hose so it is out of the way and check your trans fuel level when you are done. Let it get hot in park and running when you check the level on the stick.
Hope this helps.
