Transmisson leak by cooler lines

Aaron- that's messy and could ruin your trans if left unattended. First try to tighten them if you can. If they still leak, then break them loose one at a time and wrap some teflon pipe tape around the male end of the tube nut. Re-tighten each one and see if it stops the leak. If not, you can buy new lengths of matching tube and bend and cut to fit. If you're a poor guy like me and can't afford custom lengths of tubing, flair and bend your own if you have the talent. If not, then you can buy a short length of the same tubing and give it a short bend kind of matching the bend near the trans. Then cut the new piece of tube and cut out (and unsrew) the approximate same length of tube and either match and seal them with a brass coupling available at your friendly local hardware store, or match them with a length of 3/8' hose. I prefer the coupling, but either works. A transmission is not a high pressure pump at the lines, so you can easily get away with this fix. Let us know if this works for you. And as always use jack stands and wear safety glasses when under a vehicle. Be safe and GO!

I have a leak coming from my power steering, and i dont know how to check and see where the leak is and what to look for.

There are two lines coming out of the back of the power steering pump. One is the high pressure line and threaded into the pump. The other is the return line, and has a metal tube coming out of the back of the pump. There should be a short rubber hose connecting this tube with another metal line that goes to the steering box. There are two metal lines threaded into the top of the steering box. The steering box is located at the end of the steering column and is bolted to the drivers side frame rail at the front of the vehicle. You will have to remove the left front tire to access these fittings. The rubber hose will be attached with hose clamps and are prone to leak. To tighten the threaded fittings, you will need a 16mm open end wrench, or preferably a flare nut wrench of the same size.

Need to change fuel filter on 97 chevy lumina

Follow the steps care fully

Open the hood and relieve the fuel system pressure. On the fuel rail, right before the first fuel injector, locate the Schrader valve-similar to a tire air valve-on the inlet fuel line. Using a small screwdriver, depress the stem inside the valve while covering the valve with a shop rag to catch the squirt of fuel.

Raise the back of the vehicle using a floor jack and support it safely on jack stands.

Locate the fuel filter along the frame rail-passenger side-of the vehicle, near the fuel tank.

Unplug the quick-connect fuel inlet line on the back of the filter by pressing the lock tabs. Push the connector towards the filter and then pull to disconnect the fuel supply line.

Disconnect the outlet fuel line from the filter-the line going toward the engine-by using a backup wrench to hold the line nut while disconnecting the lock nut on the filter with a tube wrench.

Remove the filter from its mounting bracket and install the new filter in place, making sure the arrow on the side of the filter case points toward the engine.

Install the outlet fuel line. Tight the lock nut finger tight, then hold the fuel line nut with the backup wrench and tight the lock nut with the tube wrench. Make sure not to over tighten the nut to prevent fuel leaks.

Press the fuel supply line fitting against the small tube at the back of the filter until the lock tabs snap in place.

Lower the vehicle, start the engine and check for leaks.

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.

Fuel line broke leading from fuel filter how can I fix it?

Measure the outside dimension of the line and head down to the auto parts store. If it is rusty where it broke you need to get a piece of fuel line with enough length to bypass the weak spot, usually 2 or 3 feet. Make sure they give you fuel line and not brake line. There is a difference in thickness. Also get 2 compression fittings the same size as the line and some emery cloth and a small tubing cutter.
Cut out the bad piece of line, on a straight section, and clean up the good ends with the emery cloth so the ferrules will slide on easily. Put the nut on first, then the ferrule and the the union. Withthe line butted snug in the union slide the ferrule in snug and tighten the nut. Don't overtighten, it's easy to wreck your joint. Do the same with the new piece of line. Start the car and check for leaks. Tighten nuts that need to be tightened if it's leaking, and you are done.
You shoul be able to do this for about $20-$30. Hope this helps.

The brake line between the rear wheels is leaking brake fluid and my brake pad is right to the floor before they work? What kinds of tools and brake lines do I need to fix it?

if its the bubber line you can replace it with a socket set or a line wrench if its the rear its probably al steel line to the caliper ? you will need a tube cutter and some wrenchs< and a tube bender? if its just a small break you can cut a section of the tube out and buy a new tube with 2 compression unions 1 on each end and you simply slide the tube over the end and tighten? it may be cheaper and safer to just let your local tech repair this its no big deal and he can bleed the system afterwards to be safe ? not worth your safety to chance this type repair ? should cost less than $100 ? hope this helps

I have a twisted and leakin fuel line The leak is between the tank and the fuel filter, what is the easiest way to fix this?

The easiest way is to cut it out and replace it with a piece of steel brake line and a pair of compression fittings. Use a small tubing cutter to cut out the bad piece and clean up the ends with some emery cloth so that the ferrule will slide on the old line. Don't forget to put the nut on first.Put it together loosefirst and make sure you push the lines all the way into the fittings before you tighten the nuts. IT could leak if you don't but don't overtighten them or you will squash the line. If you can't get the old line smooth enough to slide ferrules on then get some rubber gas hose and clamps. Be sureto push the steel lines together before you tighten the clamps because the line is pressurized. You may have to double clamp the lines to prevent leaking. Once you have it together start the truck and crawl back under and check for leaks. Tighten what is leaking enoughto stop the leaks and you are good to go. Don't forget to bring a pail to catch gas when you cut the line. Hope this helps.
