No, this is one of those situations where you either have the parts to splice it back together or you need to replace the whole line. . Its a dealer part unless you can remove it and go to a autoparts house and match it up.

I would try your local parts store or dealership to find the exact part you need by location and description.
Here are some instructions on how to remove and replace the transmission, and it may help, but there are no illustrations here:
Transaxle Assembly REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION Riviera and Toronado

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the air intake duct.
  2. Disconnect the Throttle Valve (TV) cable from the transaxle and the throttle body. Disconnect the cruise control servo and cable.
  3. Remove the exhaust pipe crossover.
  4. Disconnect the shift control linkage lever from the manual shaft and the mounting bracket from the transaxle.
  5. Disconnect the electrical harness connectors from the neutral start/backup light switch, the Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) and the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS).
  6. Disconnect the hose from the vacuum modulator.
  7. Remove the upper transaxle-to-engine bolts.
  8. Using the engine support fixture tool, attach it to the engine, turn the wing nuts to relieve the tension on the engine cradle and mounts.
  9. Turn the steering wheel to the full left position.
  10. Raise and safely support the vehicle. Remove both from wheel assemblies.
  11. Using the halfshaft seal protector tool, install one on each halfshaft. Remove both front ball joint-to-steering knuckle nuts and separate the control arms from the steering knuckles.
  12. Using a medium prybar, pry the halfshaft from the transaxle and support it on a wire. Do not remove the halfshaft from the steering knuckle. NOTE: When removing the halfshaft, be careful not to damage the seal lips.
  13. Remove the right rear transaxle-to-frame nuts, the left rear transaxle mount-to-transaxle bolts and the right rear transaxle mount.
  14. Remove the stabilizer shaft from the left control arm.
  15. Remove the flywheel cover bolts and the cover.
  16. Matchmark the torque converter-to-flywheel bolts for reinstallation purposes. Remove the torque converter-to-flywheel bolts and push the torque converter back into the transaxle.
  17. Remove the partial frame-to-main frame bolts, the partial frame-to-body bolts and the partial frame.
  18. Disconnect and plug the oil cooler tubes from the transaxle.
  19. Remove the lower transaxle-to-engine bolts. NOTE: One bolt is located between the engine and the transaxle case and is positioned in the opposite direction.
  20. Lower the transaxle from the vehicle. Be careful not to damage the hoses, lines and wiring. To install:
  21. Raise transaxle into position. Install the lower transaxle bolts. NOTE: Make sure the opposite-facing bolt is reinstalled in the proper direction.
  22. Unplug and connect the oil cooler tubes to the transaxle.
  23. Install the partial frame. Secure with the partial frame-to-body and the partial frame-to-main frame bolts.
  24. Install the torque converter observing matchmarks made on disassembly and secure with torque converter-to-flywheel bolts. Tighten to 46 ft. lbs. (62 Nm). Install flywheel cover and secure with flywheel cover bolts.
  25. Install left control arm and stabilizer shaft.
  26. Install right rear transaxle mount, right rear transaxle-to-frame nuts and the left rear transaxle mount-to-frame nuts.
  27. Install halfshaft into transaxle. NOTE: When installing halfshafts, be sure not to damage seals.
  28. Connect the control arms to the transaxle and secure with both front ball joint-to-steering knuckle nuts.
  29. Install both wheel and tire assemblies.
  30. Lower the vehicle.
  31. Remove engine support fixture tool.
  32. Install the upper transaxle-to-engine bolts.
  33. Connect vacuum modulator hose.
  34. Connect electrical harness connectors to neutral start/backup light switch, Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) and the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS).
  35. Connect shift control linkage lever to manual shaft and mounting bracket to transaxle.
  36. Install exhaust crossover pipe.
  37. Connect Throttle Valve (TV) cable to the transaxle and throttle body. Connect cruise control servo.
  38. Install air intake duct. Connect negative battery cable.
  39. Start engine and check for transaxle leaks. Refill as necessary

What the difference between jeeps with and with out a hitch


no drive line options stated, what engine and trans?
the cars data sheet covers all that. 2011?
i dont know what towing option they had in 2011.
just hitch or other things,
mostly capacity is a function of car weight and power and transmissions ability not not overload or over heat.
up to 5000 lbs, as it says , adequately equipped,(drive train)
type of hitch and tires,
all are factors.
why not ask jeep this, they look and see what you have
then ask you what you want to tow.
see>?
quote:
With the available towing package, the Liberty is capable of pulling a load up to 5,000 pounds.

youd need top ask jeep that, for a 2011.
after all they designed it and sold it.
and brake good enough to stop car + 5000 pound
so..... at the least, not to mention speeds, or altitudes and side wind effects.

one expert said
The Jeep Liberty's towing capacity without the towing package is 2000 pounds. With the towing package, it's 3500 pounds. With the towing package and a weight distribution hitch, it's 5000 pounds. You will get down the road hauling 5000 pounds (don't try to go over any mountain passes), but your engine and transmission will pay the price. Mostly what the towing package gives you is an upgraded engine and transmission cooling system.

again why not ask jeep this, go there and ask them , Sr.
how do I get to 5000lbs safe, its their car, and there design.

ever go down a hill fast with 5000 lbs behind this small car?
? it wont be fun.
5000 lbs pushing 4000lbs.
the car is a victim , of these powerful forces.

I just replaced the trans in my 99 durango for the second time in a week it drove great for the first 50 miles then it loses all the gears fluid smells burnt New fluid filter cooler and lines ...


Could it be possible the coolant lines are reversed not allowing the trans fluid to reach the cooler? The pressure line from the trans pump can easily be identified by taking it loose and directing the fluid into a container.

What is a transcoolent line?


A Transmission Coolant Line is 2 Lines running from your Transmission to the Radiator 1 line is where transmission fluid goes into the radiator and the #2 line is where it returns to the Transmission, A Automatic transmissions Fluid can Run 400 Degrees or More,The Lines are to Help keep the temperture of the Fluid in your Transmission at a temperture that does'nt exceed the specifications of your transmission operating temperture. Prevent Over Heating and that would result in a Excessive Tep that would cause damage to the Internal Componets and your Front and Rear Seals. NOTE: Some Vehicles Trucks that Tow a Heavy Trailer or something else have a ADD on or some come from the factory with a Truck or SUIV that has a TOW Package on it, if this has this option the Transmission Lines will not go through the Transmission they will go to the Optional Transmission cooler ,thats normally located in front of your Radiator for much better cooling ,it actually works like a Radiator it has Fins and tubes with a Inlet tube and a Outlet tube. This is a Much more effficent cooling Component for your Transmission. Hope i have answered your question. And given you the Help you needed. Thank You.

Does my 2006 pontiac montana sv6 have a transmission cooler so I can haul a small trailer with 2 quads? Do I really need one?


Most vehicles have one or two means of cooling
trans fluid.
I wouldn't tow anything, without replacing whatever
factory cooler you have, out front of the condenser

You need more cooling capacity and in the summer
I would bypass the radiator cooler and use the surface
to air,you need to upgrade

My 2004 Dodge truck 4.7L over heats when I pull my trailer. I replaced the thermostat and the water pump. What do you suggest. Should I replace the rad cap? Trailer weight is 1500lbs.


Seeing as it seems you do not have any overheating problem other than when you are towing I believe that you need to make sure that when towing you do not have the transmission in overdrive unless going downhill. This is the #1 reason for transmissions failure while towing. Trans overheat = engine overheat
Hope this helps.
