If it ran low on fluid it could have blocked the pickup filter screen I the tranny, have you tried servicing it yet, you also may want to think about bypassing the cooler in the radiator and install a larger one out in front of the radiator, it could be partially plugged and caused too much back pressure and blew the line. Just a thought.

Ok thank U, but wat about how to bleed the line?

That line is right off the main pressure flow so it will bled itself in very short order.

You don't bleed trans lines. If it was ran with low/no fluid then you burnt the clutches up. Might be time for a rebuild
