replace the line with the appropate size line. It should be faily easy, just hose clamps at each end. Your local auto parts store should have the hose, and it is not very expensive. Be not to get just plain fuel line as it will not work with transmission fluid. The parts store should have transmission line or fuel injection line that is suitable.

How can you find a leak in my water supply line from well to house?

Unless you dug the whole line up you probably wouldn't find the leak unless it was a very large leak which would bring the water to the surface, You would be better off just installing a new line. Call a leak detection company. They will find your leak to within inches, and you will be able to dig down, repair the line where it is broken, and repair it.

How do you stop antifreeze from getting in your transmission?

A/T have a fluid line that runs through the cooling radiator of your car. My best guess is this tube is cracked inside your radiator. The radiator will needs to be replaced. I am not sure, but I believe that automatic transmissions often use engine coolant for cooling, and I suspect that there is a leak in the transmission. Transmission fluid cooling radiators are separate from the engine radiator, and transmission fluid is pumped through them by a pump. They usually are not stock items, but have to be added on. You probably should take the vehicle to a transmission shop, and have them check it out. Coolant will dilute the transmission fluid, and possibly corrode the transmission parts.

Why is there a reddish substance with a low viscosity leaking out of your radiator?

It could be transmission fluid. Many transmissions are cooled by running a line through the radiator. Check for small tubes going into the radiator, if you only have the two large engine coolant lines, you don't have a transmission cooling line in the radiator.

How does trans fluid get into radiator?

You will notice two lines going to your radiator from the transmission. One is a service line and one is a return line. The radiator has a transmission cooler built into it. If you have trans fluid in the radiator chances are the trans cooler is leaking. A little trans fluid in the radiator will not affect engine cooling BUT as soon as the pressure drops in that transmission you may very well have radiator coolant sucked into the tranmission and that will ruin a transmission in a hurry. You need to get this checked out as soon as possible.
