    Default Leaking Transmission Cooling lines on 97 ZJ

    My 97 4.0 transmission lines are leaking somewhere near where they go into the radiator. Couple of ?'s.

    Can you buy these at any auto parts store or do you have to go to dealer.

    Is there any "quick fix" tape, sealant, etc. that can be done.

    if lines are replaced, to unclip from radiator, does that take any kind of special tool.

    Thanks

    They are a dealer item. On my 94, I cut them, flared them, and ran transmission hose. Has been working well with no leaks for years. The lines on my 95 are leaking and I am going to purchase the OEM lines. Don't know if you need a special tool as I haven't done it yet.

    I think I found them, but not sure. Do you still have the PNs?

    #624306 was what i needed; 96 4.0 w/ oem transmission cooler. the set included both metal lines off the transmission that go up front and change over into runner lines with quick connect fittings.

    If it's just the rubber, spend $5 for the trans hose at Advanced, Pep Boys, etc.
