Leaking trans cooler line

96 F250, auto trans, has very small pinhole leak in trans cooler line right next to the downpipe. Tried patching it with rubber hose and hose clamps but it's still bleeding fluid. Dealership says that part has been discontinued !
Anyone know where I can get a whole new line ? Wonder what the dealers do to fix it .....!

Chances are you can take it off and find a hose specialist companie that can make another one. We have a place here in Oklahoma city that can make any hose with any fitting on it retty cheap. Don't know about where you are but you might look into that.
Good luck!

If you have one close, you might try O'Reillys. I know our local store makes a lot of different type of lines and fittings. I know I've had several hydrolic lines made...worth a try.

I was just in there last night. Didn't know that they did that type of stuff. I don't really see them being set up to bend that tubing so precisely but I'll ask.

thanks,
