I cant find any diagram for the routing of the lines.Most of the time it is just a fitting and these can be purchased from parts stores and the dealer.You can repair lines if a hole is rubbedin the metal part by cutting and using a compression fitting to repair.If your model has rubber hose at the radiator end then you will need to replace it with transmission or power steering hose.Do not use feul line or plain rubber hose.These are not made from the correct material and will swell and burst.I dont care what the guy says at the parts store feul line is not ok!Unless you have a HD truck you should be dealing with 5/16 (8mm) metal and or hose.Clean the leaking area with brake clean and get it dry , make sure transmission is full and crank the truck and let it run while you pinpoint the leak.Good luck and let me know if i can help.P/s if you decide to replace the lines you can purchase the bent to fit from the dealer.Dont try bending yourself ,it has taking me years to master this.

Yes, they can be cut and spliced with the right kind of hose. There is a heavy duty hose that works for transmission and power steering hoses. It's not necessary to replace entire lines.

Can a 94 chevy cheyenne transmission interchange with a 97 chevy silverado tranmission


Will it physically fit? yes. Will it be a direct replacement any everything hook right up and plug right in? If we are talking about an automatic then no. 1994's wiring was completely different than the 1997. Can it be made to work? possible, but I believe it would be more trouble trying to make it work than if the correct transmission were located and installed. If it is a cost issue where he has a good trans out of a 1994 he might see if a salvage yard will do some partial trading for the correct trans.

Trans fluid in radiator tray


You are leaking transmission fluid from either the fluid cooling lines that run from transmission to a separate reservoir in the radiator, or leaking from the reservoir itself. Hopefully, it's only the lines and may just need tightening to stop the leak.
There are two lines to the radiator's reservoir. One brings fluid from transmission to the reservoir, and a return line back into the transmission. Probably located on driver's side of the radiator, one will be near top of radiator, and one near the bottom. Small copper or steel lines that may also turn into rubber lines. Clean the area well with rags to locate the leak. Will probably need to have the car running to make it leak, while looking for it. You could also take a wrench and try tightening the fittings at the radiator, and tighten any rubber hose clamps that you see. If it's not the lines or hoses that are leaking, then the radiator may need to be pulled off for repairs or replacement. But 9 times out of ten, it is a leak from one of the lines.
When fixed, don't forget to check your transmission fluid level. Or keep adding till it is fixed.

Leak in transmisson line around the trucks radiator


Most likely the rubber hose at the end of the metal trans lines, where they connect to the bottom of radiator
I would disconnect at the trans,cut the rubber hose off,and lay it out on the gound,where you can carefully cut off the furrell and just replace the hose using a clamp on both ends.

My 1999 Chevy 1500 pickup has transmission fluid in the radiator. Can this be fixed?


It would cost as much to repair the leak that is internal on the tank then to buy a new radiator or buy a used radiator at a salvage yard. Make sure you flush the system after you change repair or change the radiator to get all the oil out of the system. The parts store has a flush for cleaning out the system.

COOLANT LEAK


On the back side of your motor... On top there is a aluminum coolant hose that has a nylon fitting in it. Make sure it isnt weaping. It will run down the back of your block. The other thing it may be is a frost plug behind your transmission bell housing. This would require pulling the transmission to replace the plug, Check the hose first. Good luck
