Anybody know what this hose is for?


They always paint them so they look pretty and justify the high price

if it is rebuilt, they just painted it. but it is possible that the original case was bad, and they replaced it. either way, they paint em.

who cares if it is original, as long as it works well.

don't worry about loosing fluid. just put some cardboard on the floor. change hose, clean. check fluid level.

The oil cooler is part of the radiator, usually at the very bottom. Many aftermarket radiators are made for the automatic and have the radiator cooler built in. If you have a manual, you just don't hook anything to it.

If you replace the hose, then make sure to get oil rated hose. Gates makes it as do many other mfg's. Hopefully, your hose isn't crimped on one end as an assembly and can be replaced easily.

It can be messy to deal with as well. I use a clamp on the hose if I am replacing it and put a pan under the radiator to catch what comes out of it as well. I pre-cut the hose to the right size first. Then, I usually remove the clamp and cut the line along the hose extending from the radiator with a razor knife. That allows me to bend the hose and it will release from the connecting tube. Do the same on the other end and then put on the new line with clamps and tighten. You shouldn't lose too much tranny fluid, but check the level and refill if necessary.

if it come out of trannie, then it's trannie cooler lines. Cooler radiator is normally built into the regular radiator, piggy backing it. Like someone already said.

You mean the hose should be over that "bead"before being tightened? I figured that too, but I dunno. I did tighten both of them and noticed the bad leaky one was the worst (way looser). Right now, Im trying it out- driving it for a bit to see if it still leaks. I'll let yous know.

there "should" be another barb/s under the hose.

if the hose got looser after tightening it, you need a new hose and clamp.

don't let that leak burn up your trans. fix it now !
