Tranny cooler lines
« on: December 18, 2011, 04:11:55 PM »

One thing after another.....

My trans cooler line is leaking, quite a bit. Its always been a bit leaky but its covering the diff now.
Any ideas? This needs to get fixed ASAP because I'm dead in the driveway til it is.

Is it leaking from the fitting or the crimp or the flexible part itself? If its the crimp the. Get a new hose. If its the fitting then inspect both threaded areas and clean and torque to spec.

Hard to tell where its leaking from, working on building it from scratch, for now I'll try and reinstall the part and torque it like a mofo. How do I get the air out of the line?

Raise the front tires off the ground and fill the reservoir.  Start engine and rotate the steering wheel back and forth, lock to lock, 5 or 6 times.  That should get the air out of the system.  Top off PS reservoir.

Its not power steering I'm working on..  :biggrin:

I'm fabricating my own line. I cleaned the old one off, torqued, etc and still leaked at both ends where the hose crimps and meets the hard line. I'll show pics once I'm done, just need one more part and I should be good to test it. Then I can get back to the CJ.

What are you using to crimp the lines?

Seems like it'd be way easier to just buy a new line.

Thats just it. No one sells the entire thing. You pretty much have to fab it.


I'll post pics of my hose crimps when done, they are actually just hose clamps but thats what JF has advised and used in the past, I flared the metal line, put the clamp on the hose, stuck the line in the tub and then clamped it on. Shouldnt make it past. Justing trying to get one more part. Try it out in the morning.
