Repair transmission fluid leak at radiator

Asked by Nov 16, 2014 at 05:36 PM about the 2005 Ford Taurus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

How do I replace seals in radiator for transmission cooler lines fittings?

1 Answer


Should be compression fittings, make sure they are tight. As an alternate way, you could add an external transmission cooler and cool your transmission through that by running high pressure rubber lines from your existing steel lines to the cooler. This will bypass the radiator all together. It is a closed loop flow. One is supply and the other is the return. Most auto stores will have external trans coolers and can help you select a size that will efficiently cool your transmission. $40 - $60 repair. Hope this was helpful.
