    Tranny cooler lines

    So my tranny cooler lines are leaking, I would like to get them replaced by Friday PM to make Crown King run. I called the stealership and the only lines are in Detroit and take 4-5 days to ship here. Is there anyone in town who can make them? FYI not available from Autozone or Oreillys. Its a 2004 Jeep LJ 4.0. Thanks in advance, oh I did the search engine and didn't find anything.

    Take them to hose power they will make you new ones while you wait. At lease that's what they have done for me in the past.

    Too late, but switch to brass barbed fitings, Oreillys has bulk trans line

    Note- from what I read, must use Atf+4, NOT dextron or mercron

    Question: When I replace a tranny cooler hose, do I have to worry about air in the lines/bubble getting stuck in the tranny cooler? ... Or just top the system off and the air will get pushed through?
    Thank you!

    Top the reservoir off, jack up the front end with the engine off and turn the steering wheel lock to lock for about 15 minutes, checking the reservoir every couple minutes and topping it off again as air bubbles out.

    Don't just replace the line and then drive the vehicle or it could burn up your pump. Probably won't, but could.

    Re: Tranny cooler lines

    It sounds like you are referring to the steering lines ...which is great advice. My question is about the hose that goes to the remote transmission cooler. When I replace that, do I worry about air pockets? if so, what's the best method to make sure no air gets trapped in the transmission lines. I can't seem to find any good direction on this. Thank you!

    What is the proper procedure for refilling the power steering pump after doing work on the power steering system? I'm going to be changing my power steering gear box soon.

    Nope. Replace the line, get it up to temp, and check the level of fluid per normal procedures.
