Question about 1998 Ford Taurus

Open Question

Trans line leaking at connector

Jim

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.

SOURCE: ATF leaking from Cooling line connectors at Transmission

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.

Good luck.

SOURCE: I have a 1999 taurus 3.0 v6. The trans cooler line

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.

Ask a trans repair shop,but I doubt it

The best you could hope for, would be to change the
trans wire harness.

I doubt the PCM will even work with the other trans

Should have rebuilt your AXOD

I need to know how to install transmission line


You are referring to a transmission cooling line, connected at the radiator, running back to the trans? Is there a leak in the line? If that is the problem, you can do a quick fix as long as you can determine where the leak is. Cut the line at the leak, using a hack saw blade (the more 'teeth' per inch= a finer, easier cut). Slide a piece of rubber gas line (purchase it by the foot at any parts store) over the trans line, install a small hose clamp at each end, check the fluid level, and you are good to go. This fix will last for a LONG time. If you want to replace the entire line, you'll need to remove it and bring it to a parts store, so they can match up fittings so you can re-attach a new line at the trans and radiator. Line is sold by the foot, and you will need to bend it (carefully, so as not to kink it) to match the original. 2 or more sections of line can be joined together by connectors to make any length you want. Using 2 or more sections will make it easier to 'fit' the line in place. Purchase brake line wrenches to use to remove the lines at the radiator and trans, they work better than regular wrenches (you don't have to buy these, it just makes the job a bit easier.

Lines for transmission fluid from engine block to transmission leak


The two trans cooler lines run from the trans to the radiator,they are routed along the engine block.
If you can find which one is leaking you can cut the line and install a piece of 5/16 rubber gas hose and two clams to repair it.

I have a leak in one of my transmission lines I am trying to purchase a replacement how do I know which is the pressure line


You don't need to buy a replacement line from the dealer. These are easily repairable for a fraction of the price.Steel brake line is the sameas transmission line and can be bought by the foot at an autoparts store. You need to measure the diameter of the current lines to get the right size. You also need a small tubing cutter and 2 brass unions to complete the task. A splice in a trans line doesn't need to be flared, it will work just fine with a compression fitting.
Cut out the leaking piece of line with the tubing cutter making sure you have a bucket to catch the leaks. Cut the new line to the same length. Slide the nut onto the old line and then the ferrule. Place the union tight to the line and slide the ferrule and nut up to it and hand tighten. Do this with the other end of the union and the new pipe and also the other end of the line. Once you have it in place tighten all the nuts snug with a pair of open end wrenchs. Don't overtighten. Overtightening can squash the line so that the trans fluid doesn't flow properly. Start the car and watch for leaks. Tighten the offending nuts just enough to stop the leaking and you are done. Hope this helps.

Is there o-rings on the oil cooler lines where they attach to the transmission on a 1998 ford tauris


The o rings are built into the connector housing that the trans line fits into. They are not real expensive at a parts store, so you are better off just replacing the fittings themselves if they are leaking. However there is a special tool needed to remove the line from the fitting. without it you will not be able to get them apart. The tool is not expensive either.

Hope this helps.

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.
