Transmission cooler line leaking

Recommended Posts

I have a 2004 GMC seirra 1500 4x4, and today while getting my oil changed the shop informed me that I have a leaking transmission cooling line. This dealer shop said it would cost around $250 to replace the lines. Can replacing the lines be a DIY job???

I thought the same thing but didn't have the time on my 2005. I just had them done and bit the bullet. Better that then creating a new more expensive repair. Might be my last Chevy.

Same here, I have had more problems with this truck than any other truck I have owned and I am not hard on this truck at all. I believe GM really put some awful parts and engineering into their vehicles lately IMO.

I just did some on a newer chev suburban. After pulling the front bumper valance, right side front diff mount, Separated both the idler and pitman arm from the center link, they finally came out! That was to replace all three lines. There is a tool to release the spring clips that hold the lines in the fittings. You will need this tool to get the lines of of the transmission. The bottom line isn't to bad but the top line will be a bear if you aren't familiar with replacing them.

Otherwise there a piece of cake!

airjer do all 3 lines need to be replaced? I believe I have found the leak, it is very small and looks to be coming out of a fitting possiably.

Not necessarily. If its one of the lines from the trans to the radiator/cooler then replace both. If it is the the line from the radiator to the cooler than replace that one. More often than not its the line that goes to the upper fitting on the radiator an that one goes to the transmission. Also more often than not its not the only line leaking.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
