Choosing the Right Transmission Oil Line
A transmission oil line is there to connect your car's transmission to its radiator. Without it, your engine compartment would be a hot cooking pot of disaster. It is a fairly simple looking part. But choosing the right transmission oil line is not as easy. Here are still a few things you have to know when buying a new one for your car.
- Make sure that your transmission oil line is approved for use with transmission/hydraulic fluids. Hoses or lines that are of substandard quality will not be able to work effectively. In some extreme cases, your transmission fluid can even break down or melt your oil lines if they are not durable enough.
- Purchase transmission oil lines from trusted brands. Although there is no real preference when it comes to branded oil lines, it is still best to get one from a supplier that you know and trust. Generic types might be cheaper, but branded transmission oil lines ensure that it matches the form, fit, and function of your original part.
- Install rubber transmission oil lines instead of metal ones. Although some metal type lines, especially zinc-coated steel, are more corrosion resistant, they are actually harder to install. In order to efficiently use metal transmission lines, mechanics put small flairs at the end of the lines and sandpapers the surface to give it a good seal. But with a rubber-type transmission oil lines, you don't have to do all of those. You simply need to clamp them in place to ensure a good fit.
- Check the warranty of your transmission oil line. The standard term of warranty is 12-month or 12,000-mile. Don't settle for anything less than that. Also look at the other conditions of your warranty to make sure you get the most value out of what you paid for.
- Don't purchase aftermarket transmission oil lines. It is always recommended that you replace your damaged transmission lines with a new, complete assembly. This part is very sensitive and requires a perfect fit to ensure it functions well. So by purchasing lines that follows the OE design you know that there is no room for gaps and leaks.
- Don't shortcut replacing your damaged transmission oil lines by reinstalling old parts or installing hose clamps to cover the leaks. This can greatly reduce the part's life and could compromise the transmission.
- Don't install new transmission oil lines without replacing fittings as well. It is not enough to get a good working transmission line. You should also ensure that connection to the engine and transmission is of the best quality. This will help you get the most efficient results when it comes to your transmission system.

Unfortunately, these transmission lines are not susceptible to wear and tear. So when your transmission starts to slip in and out of gear or has a delayed reaction to your shifting, it might be a sign of a transmission oil line gone bad.
Difficulty level: Easy to moderate
Tools you'll need:
- Car jack and jack stand
- Pan or dry paper towels
- Wrench set
- Flare-nut wrench
- Transmission oil line replacement
- Transmission fluid
- Locate your transmission oil line by looking under your car. It should be attached to your radiator from either its lower right or lower left corner. Place a pan or layers of dry paper towels underneath the oil lines to catch the fluids that will come out during its removal.
- Open your hood to locate your transmission oil lines. Using an appropriately-sized wrench, remove the fittings that attach it to your radiator.
- Begin removing your oil line using a flare-nut wrench. Start with the open end of your wrench and slide over the cooler line until it reaches the nut that secures it in place. Loosen the nut at the end of the line and gently pull the oil line away from the transmission. Completely remove the lines from underneath your car.
- Attach your new oil line to your transmission. From the front of your vehicle, slowly insert its tip to the bottom of your radiator and secure the nu.
- Once everything is secured and all the fittings are reassembled, lower your vehicle for the finishing touches.
- Add transmission fluid and test your oil lines. With your car's engine on, get your foot on the brake pedal and shift through gears. Turn the engine off after a few minutes and check your transmission fluid level with a dipstick. Your fluid level should be at or just below "FULL" before you can take your new transmission oil lines out for a spin.
