Transmission lines

I have a tranny fluid leak on of the lines coming from the tranny on the driverside, and ends up at a canister on the passenger side. I cannot find a replacement except for the dealer for 200 dollars. Anyone know of other places or ideas.

Don't know what the line looks like since I don't have that generation.

Try taking the line off and take it to a parts house or hydraulic company that can make up hydraulic hoses. If they have the right ends or possibly with adapters, they should be able to make up a hose for a lot less then $200. I have replaced many steel lines with hydraulic hose for a lot cheaper then OEM. I do have my own hose crimping machine but any shop with a hose crimping machine should be able to do it. Should be able to do it for under $50.goodluck

Replacing with a rubber line can be a bad idea, as it gets really hot over at the heat exchanger, right below the exhaust manifold sandwiched between the block and the turbo/downpipe. Where do you live? If you do not live anywhere with extremely cold and harsh winters, I would suggest bypassing and eliminating the heat exchanger entirely. I will look in the shop tomorrow, because I think I have one just hanging out if you want to keep the heat exchanger system intact.

I ran rubber lines on my truck since 2008. If you buy the correct rubber rated for oil cooler lines it will be fine. Just replace the trans fittings with an fitting and put an fittings on the lines works like a charm and I agree bypass heat exchanger you don't need it. I live in the mountains for northern ca and see temps down to single digits and it works fine
