Transmission Cooler Line Leak 2006 WK Help

Hello,

My Jeep passed a whole inspection with no problems except for a tranny cooler line leak which I've been told about by other mechanics who have checked under the Jeep for a while now... But have said it's nothing serious but should be fixed at some point...

I'm going on a long road trip in July-August...Dealer wants 700$ (About 100$ parts, the rest in labor to fix it)...

What would you do?

Someone said:

"the cheaper way to go is cut the line up by the radiator with a tubing cutter and on the transmission. leave about a inch of line left by the radiator and the transmission. get some 3/8 gas hose and 2 small screw clamps. rubber will be cheaper then metal. if you use metal you will have to use your fittings and flare both ends on the line."

and another said:

Someone said "you can get complete lines from the dealer these lines really can't be mickey moused and are relatively cheap from the dealer"



These are the 2 parts needed according to the estimate:

as well as some of this, not sure why? http://www.factorymoparparts.com/0vu01497ab.html

Re: Transmission Cooler Line Leak 2006 WK Help

Replace the leaking lines with OEM only. This is a common problem with the WK, and will happen with most before 60k. The fluid level drops in the trans, and left unattended can lead to many thousands for a trans by not doing the repair.
