Default Bleeding Again

My car is bleeding.


I'm pissed.

EVERY 3800 car I have owned has these same crappy transmission lines. Will investigate further but a decent 8" diam puddle in the new driveway I moved into just days ago.


must be the severe temp changes from 85* in the daytime to freezing at night.

hm, well.... best if you get some new ones in. That **** catches fire WAY to easily.

MAKE SURE to go with pre-formed ones. I had some custom fab ones put in because the shop would have my car an extra 2 days to wait for pre-formed ones to be shipped in. The custom ones blew off and damn near caused my engine to catch fire. I had the shop tow my vehicle down there, tranny flushed, pre-formed line installed and all new tranny fluid out of their wallet expense

The car is merely leaving it'* mark...lol

If you can..find the local AC Delco warehouse and pick them up asap. Easy to change out and then no more leaking.

Meanwhile..keep an eye on the fluid level. If possible..wrap a potato around the leaking area. The potato if wrapped properly can slow the leak.
