    Have you tried tightening it down or possibly replacing the crush washers?

    I took it off last night and it has a nasty leak and a small. I wish I could just find a replacement but no luck so far. 491873F2-ACA5-4FA3-BC8B-1B6DA162CBA9.jpg982CDB8C-62E0-4E1B-A365-1CC7EACB9B78.jpg

    Oh shit that’s a little worse than just the connection. That was caused by a lot of stress where that hose mounted up. I would just check Amazon for one of equal size. It will probly save you some money over oem.

    Do you have an aftermarket radiator? If you do, run new lines from the transmission into the transmission cooler on the radiator. It may not be as good as an external cooler, but it can save you some money and you won't have tranny fluid leaking anymore.
