Oil changes always go bad

A usual when I got my oil changed on my 2005 jeep grand cherokee they informed me of an issue.
My transition coolant line (not sure it return or send) line is leaking. Anybody have experiance with this. Should I just replace both of them or stick with he leaking one.

OK, lets admit those really cheap dealership oil changes have several goals.

- Bring over the high school kids from the jiffy joints into a dealership as interns

- Get you in the dealership, where the service always seems to take long
enough for a bit of schmoozing with sales, the techs, and slobbering over
the showroom

- Gives them a chance to do a vehicle inspection where items you may have
forgotten or not noticed are also taken care of. There is definitely a profit
motive here...

Ask them. I don't recall my service managers ever waving henny penny hands in the
air, more often I get "naawww, wait till next oil change, or just wait till it wears out"
responses. Except in one occasion where the cooler line was laying on the exhaust--but usually for bad stuff like that, they come get me in the event I want
it fixed immediately.

Your Dealers May Vary, Some Restrictions Apply.

Yes, this is a common problem. If you look at the lines where they enter the transmission cooler, you'll likely see the leak where the flex hose changes to a solid line.

Pain to replace yourself, as it is tricky to route those lines. Should be about a $250 job at a dealer.

Mine are starting to weep as well. Had it noted by Firestone last time I had an alignment done and I went out under the racks and saw it myself. Just add another repair to the to-do list.

Re: Oil changes always go bad

I've replaced them twice over 150,000+ miles. Hoping not to have to do it again, but they seem to be a weak spot.

People have just cut out the bad section and replaced it with some slightly larger hose and clamped it in (if you search, I'm sure you'll find it with more specific instructions).

How much did it cost each time aprox?

Should be around 250 at average shop/dealership.

Most of that cost is labor, so if he can do it either in his spare time or at a discounted rate, it'll be much less.
