that is a tranny cooler hose. tighten the clamp, but not too much, you don't want to strip the clamp. then clean it off and keep an eye on it. if it keeps leaking, you will have to replace the hose.

Dont think so, UK. Looks like it comes out of the tranny "block". Man, those are big blocks.

You guys are great. Looks like consensus on tranny cooler hose. I will clean off, and tightten a tad the clamp, and then watch it. Worst, I will remove is still leaks, and replace . If/when I replace, should I expect a big gush of fluid coming out? Never did this.......

Side note: this tranny was just reman'd by a local shop.

Oh- this "tranny cooler", where is it? Looks like to me it goes into the radiator, but I know it cant be. Is this cooler soooo small? In front or back of rad? (also, theres the condenser to consider...)

You will have a steady trickle out of the fittings. I just have the new hose ready when I take the old one off.

Just noticed those guys replaced my entire tranny with another, cuz its painted grey. My original was plain aluminum metal. Doesnt that now make my car "not original"?

Usually part of the radiator built into one of the tanks of the radiator

Thanks, CJ. Is that a bad messy job? How much fluid could I spill?
