2002 TB with 139,000.....I noticed fluid in my driveway, and it turns out that i have a tiny pin hole leak in the cooler line. Leak is located under the vehicle next to the trany, just as the line turns to go up. There are two lines running side by side, and one is in perfect condition, the other with the leak had some rust/rot just on the bend upwards. I cut out a small 2 inch piece of the cooler line and used a 3/8" rubber hose and clamps to fix it for now. I'm looking for some kind of DIY kit to permanently fix with steel tubing. Can't seem to find it...any help would be appreciated. Royals

Or you could just order a new line.

replacing the line involves dropping the trany, don't want to do that, just want to repair it

As said.

No need to drop transmission.
I user steel lines 3/8 drive crows feet in hard to reach places.

Best to replace both lines.
