Transmission Cooler Line Leaks

Occasionally the coolant lines on your automatic transmission will leak. This is usually caused by the metal lines coming loose and rubbing against something. To fix a leak on these lines you can quickly and easily cut the line to remove the damaged area and splice the pieces together with rubber tubing (you do carry it in your emergency supplies, right?) and hose clamps.

It is a very useful information. Because the Transmission fluid is high temperature, I think it needs the high temperatur hose.
