Question about Chevrolet Silverado 1500
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.
