|Jt_Ripper||I can cut the solid line back a bit flare it out and use a hose and clamp. Will last longer than the crimp fitting, thank god for a brother in law who's a mechanic and confirmed what dog said...|

|PHILDABEAST||Those are a crimp fitting, not reusable. You'll have to replace the hard line and all either with factory stuff or go somewhere that builds hydraulic lines and get some made.|

|wat3rdog||I know that at autozone you can rent tools too|

Good idea! Santa Fe tool company has cheap tools. If I was a mechanic I'd buy snap on etc, but for a one time job it's them or harbor freight..
Ill post more once I start the patch repair lol

|wat3rdog||I've never had to mess with those types of fittings. Looks like they're a compression. I would think that they designed that area to be a flex line for a reason so it may be good to stay flexible. Maybe someone knows better. A flare fitting with plumbing is stronger. I wonder if pepboys has a lonner tool if needed.|

Transmission Cooler Lines
Need some advise, please and thank you.
I had a rough shift as i pulled out of the driveway this morning and didnt think to much of it... i thought maybe i didnt let her warm up enough.
I ran my errands and as i got back in to my jeep I noticed a small wet dot on the ground. I looked and noticed fluid on the lower lines and sure enough its red.
after searching and reading all sorts of forums i figured id ask you guys whats the best fix.
1. ordering new lines and replacing them? ( will these have the same issue later on?)
2. Cut the lines and flare them and use tubing instead?
thanks for any information and tips.
