There are as far as I know, no hard lines from
the trans to the radiator avail

The repairs at the radiator end, can be done
by removing the rubber hose furrels and replacing
the rubber hose and using clamps

If you have a vehicle with special radiator connectors,
as on some fords,there are parts for the disconnects

    There are two nipples that screw into the radiator itself to which the transmission hoses connect with clamps as you described. However, I am installing a new radiator that does not include the nipples because they expect you to use the ones from the old radiator--which of course is absurd since they have been in there for 28 years.

    Got it. The nipples you need ,will be reverse flair and should
    be in a bins at the auto parts store,usually eldelman brand etc

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.

REPLACED RADIATOR 1998 CHEVY SILVERADO NOW TRANSMISSION FL LEAKS AT LINE ON RADIATOR WHY


Make sure clamps are tight, you have the transmission fluid which runs through a part of the radiator to cool the fluid. There should be two transmission lines going to the radiator, inlet and outlet, make sure they are on properly and the clamps are tight.

I'm losing automatic transmission fluid. Is there any common history to support a theory of leaking transmission cooling lines?


I just checked for technical service bulletins and there is nothing for leaks from tranny or lines. Your vehicle is 15 years old if they havent been replaced yet it is possible it it just time to change them. Check where it goes from metal to rubber on the lines that is most likely where it will be wet. If itis wet there more than likely you'll need new lines

Radiator is leaking, on the drivers side of car. 2002 Chevy Avalanche, 4 wheel drive trcuk. One owner, 106000 miles on it.


Removal & Installation To Remove:
WARNING
To avoid being burned, do not remove the radiator cap or surge tank cap while the engine is on or is still hot. The cooling system will release scalding fluid and steam under pressure if radiator cap or surge tank cap is removed while the engine and radiator are still hot.
CAUTION
If the vehicle's coolant is low, drained out, or has repeatedly needed coolant or water added to the system, then the system should be completely flushed.
  1. Before servicing the vehicle refer to the precautions at the beginning of this section.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Inlet hose from the radiator
    • Radiator outlet hose from the radiator
    • Lower fan shroud
    • Surge tank hose
    • Vent inlet hose from the radiator
    • Surge tank hose
    • Engine oil cooler lines from the radiator
    • Transmission oil cooler lines from the radiator Remove the radiator chevy_sub25_02-04_rad_rem.gif

    • Radiator bolts
    • Radiator from the vehicle
To Install:
  1. Install or connect the following:
    • Radiator to the vehicle
    • Radiator bolts and tighten the bolts, Torque to: 18 ft-lbs (25 Nm)
    • Engine oil cooler lines to the radiator
    • Transmission oil cooler lines to the radiator
    • Radiator vent inlet hose to the radiator
    • Lower fan shroud
    • Outlet hose to the radiator

Im leaking transmission fluid from what appears to


Make sure you don not run low on transmission fluid in your transmission. Low transmission fluid will cost you a new transmission. You have the transmission line that connects to the upper passenger side or the radiator and the lower passenger side of the radiator. Determine which line has gone bad and you can buy a rubber transmission line hose at most Auto Parts store like Parts Source. Cut off out the section with a pipe cutter that has corroded through and replace with the transmission hose. Make sure you tell them it's a transmission line hose your looking for and don't use any other hose and double clamp with a compression clamps at ether end. If it's the connection at the radiator that has gone bad, replace that end and do that same as you would to sectioning off the the corroded line and try not to have more then 3 inches of repaired section. What ever you do, do not add any stop leak, this will create problems with the shift solenoids and check valves in your valve body in the transmission causing a transmission replacement soon after adding. Good luck and keep me posted.

Brownish fluid leaking from the small mannifold on the passenger side of the car in front of the radiator...is this transmission fluid?


Good chance it's the transmission fluid. The passenger side of the radiator is the transmission cooler side and the coolant is leaking from the transmission lines. There should be two lines, one on top which is the inlet and the bottom one which is the return line. Check to make sure there is no corrosion along the lines or that the line has not come loose at the radiator. Locate the leak and repair or replace the lines. Good luck and take care not to run low on transmission fluid, low fluid in the system will cause the transmission to burn out.
